    Loss Prevention Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at U.S. Security Associates in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with a District Manager who himself seemed very knowledgeable and professional. I think we clicked right off the bat because after reviewing my resume and speaking with him for a few minutes, it was apparent that our backgrounds were very similar. He continued by detailing the job responsibilities and his expectations for the position. We then toured the facility, at which point I felt that I knew I was getting the job. To be on the safe side, I used the opportunity to highlight specific cases that I had worked in the past. that sealed the deal I believe. He then told be about company orientation dates and times, background checks, and drug testing. All in all about an hour was spent "interviewing".

    Even though the position was for Inside Sales, my last interview involved me selling a cheap, obnoxious men's tie to managers. It was not expected and quite fun.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at U.S. Security Associates in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very easy to get hired at this company as long as you can pass a background check. The biggest thing is passing their terrorism test on their computer & loss prevention if your doing LP for them. They have all their own test that you must pass to work at this company and you get two shoots to pass them and one shoot to pass any drug test & background check.

    Interview Questions
    • The terrorism & loss prevention test was the most difficult thing about the process. The most unexpected was the wait you can go into the office and wait up to 1-4 hours if you don't keep on them.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    It was a pain in the butt first i was offered $14,50 then the day before i was to start work they retracted their offer & gave me 13.00 an hour

    Security Guard Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at U.S. Security Associates in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Generally if you aren't trying to be hired for high paying site, $14 Hr and up, basically they only want bodies. However be aware that its a mix of the main office hiring and the site manager. The office truly only cares about filling positions. The site managers themselves are open to conduct interviews however they want for good or bad.

    Had to drive an hour and a half away to go to the companys home office. I felt very unfortunate for this company to not be hiring locally. Most companies would set up a place to hire locally.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at U.S. Security Associates.

    Interview Details

    I don't really remember the process all that much except the day I submitted my resume, I was called into the office for an interview. It was one interview and it went well. I already had 10 years security behind me. I thought both Cheryl and Mike (Recruiter and Field Supervisor) were friendly and helpful as they placed me right away. Thought the office was a little cluttered and they never seem to have the right size uniforms in stock.

    Interview Questions
    • None. All the questions were routine and easy to answer.   Answer Question

    Security Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at U.S. Security Associates.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was simple. Send in your application online, then wait for a response and set up an interview.

    The first part of the "interview" was filling out a ton of paperwork, including having your driver's license and social security card scanned. Then you sit around until you finally get to interview. Plan on spending 2 hours at the office due to paperwork and waiting.

    The interview was a joke. The interviewer was shopping online and taking personal phone calls during the interview process. She created the most unprofessional interview I have ever had the displeasure of taking part in.

    Next was the unpaid 8 hour training day to see if you even qualify to become a security officer with their company. The current employees who I saw coming into the office were extremely unprofessional, and had no business in a customer service position such as this.

    Security Officer Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at U.S. Security Associates in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    Just told interviewers what I had done before, demonstrated my ability to walk and chew gum at the same time, and that I knew which end of the phone to speak into. My experience didnt seem to matter a lot to them, they seem to want people who'll do what they want them to, and learn by trial and error to do it their way.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiating. You take it or leave it. So many people in this town are underpaid and consider themselves lucky to have any job. Ive done well both other parts of the country where I had lived, this town blows. They have you over a barrel here, and employers know it and take full advantage.
