interviewed at G4S in May 2014.

Interview

Was interviewed and hired back in May 2014.....they did not mention they have a payroll problem and many employees aren't being paid. They also didn't mention as they hire new people they will start to dog the employees they have. Eventually, the new people will be getting dogged too. Like giving out little work here little work there ( reducing hours)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at G4S (Canton, OH) in March 2012.

    Interview

    First off they post a job posting that doesn't exist. They use this to get candidates to interview and offer them another position (example: upscale unarmed security officer). They call you and set up an interview date. You go in and fill out paperwork then have your interview. Basic interview type questions. Why should we hire you, etc. Now here is the kicker, unless you have corrections officer experience or your peace officer or military background then there is NO chance for advancement! Even with a degree, blah blah blah. And most of the jobs are low paying. All they want is someone who can pass a background check and will stay in the same low paying job and be happy with it.

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at G4S in October 2008.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process is very simple. All you have to do is go to their office where they will sign you in. You tell the front desk receptionist that you are looking to work with the company. The receptionist will then hand you have a test exam and you can go to your little cabin to write the exam. Once you have written the exam, they check whether you have scored above 75%. If so, the HR manager gets the file and interviews you on the spot in her office. If the HR manager likes you, you get the job. You take a few photos, fill out some forms and you are ready to go.
