    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Contemporary Services Corporation in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    A lot of interviewees. They asked simple questions as to what do you think you could bring to the table. . What would you do if you encoder an intoxicated guest. .. and they pretty much hired on spot. If you have any common sense, you have the job. Seems like a great experience to work in.

    I interviewed in-person - interviewed at Contemporary Services Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Went online and saw that they were hiring through CraigsList. Contacted them and was called in for an interview. Went down to stadium and pretty much got the job on the spot. There really aren't any standards in hiring. As long as you're not overtly terrible then you'll get the job.

    Event Staff Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Torrance, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Torrance, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Contemporary Services Corporation in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, went in to do an "interview" but filled out a paper application. Told me they'd call me and a couple of days later they did. Went in and someone from HR interviewed me. She only asked me one question and the rest of the time she told me about the company. Then she handed me a paper regarding Employee Orientation, she didn't say anything else, but I figured I got the job. The interview probably took about 30 to 45 minutes and she was really nice.

    Okay so when you get there, depending on your office (mine is in Torrance) they have you line up outside. When they're ready they open the door and someone stands in front and checks your papers. You need TWO (2) copies of EACH document, if you don't they have another line where they send you while they straighten things out. Once you're inside they have you fill out another paper for the money order if you don't have your guard card. Then you sign in and get your number, they use this to take your picture for your company profile. - I think they pay you for the two hours you're there. :)

    Right now I'm starting my Guard Card Course, which you have to put a down payment of $102 in money order.
