    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at G4S (Austin, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Found the job posting on indeed.com, and the application was very straightforward. Standard information and questions, didn't take long to fill out. Was emailed within 2 weeks with a time to come in for an interview. Interview itself was very laid back. Just the HR manager and his assistant. Explain the company/job, asked if I had any questions. Told they would be in touch as soon as the background check and drug test results came back.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at G4S.

    Interview

    Was called in for the interview and the supervisor was one hour later. But he was sorry about that. I received a call one day after I applied for a one on one and we interviewed in the lobby. Overall he just asked me questions about safety and when I could start. Was also said he'd be very flexible when I started with my school schedule. Which he was telling the truth about.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at G4S (New York, NY) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Short, I knew I had the job already. They gave me my job description, told me what I could/could not do, and asked that I refrain from volunteering for military training to maintain availability to the client. The interviewer gave me the impression that he didn't really care about anything and that he was just doing the interview as a formality.

    Interview Questions

    • Will you not volunteer for military training? The client will need you here.   Answer Question
