Security Officer Interview

Security Officer

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Securitas in November 2013.

Interview Details – Okay so I applied online and got a call couple days later asking me to come in for an interview. I went in signed in at the front desk and the receptionist gave me a packet to fill out paperwork and a indecent report. I turned that in and waited for my interview. Was asked simple questions about my history and myself. Was told I would get a call if my background check cleared. Got a call to come into a class (not paid) it was two days four hours a day. Basically a class about the company. Went into orientation the next monday and then was given the site I would be working at.

Interview Question – Was the situation report you write when you first come in.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation but when I was hired (before training) I was told I would be paid $9.00 and then when I got might site after orientation I was given a much better offer. Every Site is paid differently so its all depending on that.

Security Officer Interview

Security Officer
Phoenix, AZ

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Securitas in August 2011.

Interview Details – I applied for Securitas because my dad said that they're the security company that works at Intel and that he'd been talking to one of the guards who said they're hiring like crazy. He told me to go in and gave me the guard's name. They didn't call me back for 2 weeks when I applied online. They finally did call me for an interview and I just had it this morning. When I showed up, the office was filled with people waiting for their interview too. They had CNN playing on the TV in the waiting room. The receptionist made me sign in and I was given my application pack, which included everything I filled out online, and a mock incident report, which during the interview they didn't even tell me if I did right or not because I've never worked security before. There was one guy in the waiting room dressed in business casual, a woman in a long sleeve Quiksilver tee and sweatpants, and a couple, and also a father and son applying on the computer. My interview was supposed to be at 11:30 but since everybody arrived before me, I sat and watched as they pulled everybody back for their interview. Within 2 minutes, they were on their way again. I soon found out why as I was pulled back. I was expecting to get these hard hitting questions, something worth a challenge but it was yet more paperwork. The interviewer just asked all these questions off of a packet, "Do you have a valid license?", "What's your driving record like?", "Would you be able to work overtime and holidays?" That was it. Then I was sent on my way while she said she would have to review my application with the other interviewer and would let me know.

Difficult Interview

Security Officer Interview

Security Officer
Stockton, CA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Securitas in January 2011.

Interview Details – Basically I had to take a 2 hour test online after the application and then a couple weeks later I get a call from a man asking me to come in for an interview. Okay, cool, so I go in and the interview lasts like 20 minutes (it took me longer then that to get there, I live in a different city). At the end he bluntly tells me that my chances at this position were extremely low. He claimed it was because of my lack of experience in security. I know this is a lie because my mom works with a man whose daughter (who is my age and had no experience) was hired by his location. >_<

Security Officer Interview

Security Officer
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Securitas in December 2009.

Interview Details – I received a phone call from them and was told to come in for a 1:1 interview. I got there early and waited for an hour and a half before I was called in for my interview. I told the interviewer that I was applying for supervisor. She said she would hand my application to management and that was the end of the interview.

Average Interview

Security Officer Interview

Security Officer

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Securitas in May 2009.

Interview Details – The interview was friendly, not the case since hired! There was alot of personal questions, very little information about the company. The information given has not turned out to be the truth, but I half expected that. I was told that I would be on day shift, & I was for a short time. Not the case today!

Interview Question – There weren't any difficult questions.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Negotiated nothing!
