Security Guard Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Canton, OH
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Canton, OH
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at G4S in March 2012.

Interview Details

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.

    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at G4S in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    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.
