Security Officer - Site Supervisor Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (Chicago, IL).

Interview

I was approached by an HR person who had found my resume online through Career Builder. I felt a little led on by the initial phone conversation because the job seemed a lot more tailored to my educational background and work history than it actually was. The interview process was very thorough and lengthy. There was a background check and drug test. There was an in person interview with HR, the site supervisor and corporate client. Finger printing took a long time and was not fun. There was a rather tedious online personality, skills and knowledge test. There is ample training before you start the job which is great and the opportunity to become certified.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (Chicago, IL) in May 2013.

    Interview

    The interview and application process is the longest, most intensive that I've encountered. Everyone seems nice and helpful. The interviews are rather brief. You have to give a lot of personal information and professional work history details. After the offer there is still even more work to do before you get started with the job and trainings.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Securitas Security Services USA in November 2007.

    Interview

    The branch Manager asked me if I was interested in the position of site supervisor which had just come open upon the passing of our previous supervisor.
    I stated that I was as I was already acting as team leader to help keep things running smoothly untill another Supervisor could be put in place.
    He told me to fax a resume to his office which I did.
    The other officers on site all ralied around me to be the next supervisor.
    That was the last I heard from him on the position untill he called me to tell me that they had hired outside the company and was giveing me a newly created position ( created just for me) of assistant site supervisor.
