    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Securitas Security Services USA.

    Interview Details

    This is a basic interview. Security companies don't expect much out of guards, and this one is no different. Basically, if you can string together a coherent sentence, they'll hire you. You are given a little test that quizzes your ability to write an incident report, but it's pretty simple. They don't expect you to know exactly what to write, they just want to see that you are English literate.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Securitas Security Services USA in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    The office staff were friendly, albeit a bit scatter brained and unorganized. It wasn't really an interview. They called me in for an interview when really it was actually to complete my hiring paperwork and to do my drug test.

    Negotiation Details
    We pay differently for different sites. Between 8.50 and 11.00 dollars an hour. There really was no negotiating

    I applied online – interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA.

    Interview Details

    Good Interview Process. Nice and simple. Questions relate to your actual job not all the extra stuff that makes no sense for what you'll be doing.

    Negotiation Details
    Ask questions about raises and promotion opportunities at the site you'll be at. Some have none and are locked in at low wages with no raise possibility.
