    Interview

    It was an informal process. You could tell they were herding thru canidates to fill a lot of holes in the business. The company has made some bad business decisions and they are trying to pick themselves up so they can go publc one day soon.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Garda World Security in March 2014.

    Interview

    My interview is mixed. I was advised that 5pm would be the latest to work. 5pm was a dream. 6:30-8:30 pm was the norm. The building was dirty, and I should have not taken the job as people's body language suggested otherwise.

    • The mgr wanted me to not give notice to my employer at that time. This should have been a sign as well.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. The manager advised the rate of pay which was more than I was making at the time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Garda World Security (North York, ON (Canada)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was a three step process. Had one with recruiter who presumably weeds out non-qualified applicants if there references don't check out, then 2nd with top level manager of that branch who based on my specific skill set decided that I could fit somewhere else in the company, and the third with the manager overseeing scheduling who gave a better day-to-day analysis of what the job would entail.
