    Very professional and to the point! They ask about specific past experiences. I was really prepared because I had my resume and a lot confidence. All my paper work was going to be forwarded to the Warden and then Human Resources!

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at GEO Group in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    One interview where you met with the program director and another person in HR. The second time, rehire, the program warden met in the process with HR Rep and Program Director. Both times it was obvious they just wanted a body to do the job. The second time it was obvious they were just beyond desperate as they hired others who had no experience.

    Interview Questions
    • None were difficult if you are holding an advanced degree. However questions about the 12 Steps are sometimes neglected. The focus is kept just on how to handle difficult clients with no focus on substance abuse or anything clinical.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at GEO Group in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was brought in for an interview a week after I submitted an online application. I interviewed with the HR manager and had to answer a few questions regarding my past work and education experience. Other questions involved what I would be comfortable with, since the position has high potential to be dangerous. I was also asked to provide some examples of what I had done in the past for particular situations. The whole process lasted maybe an hour, which included the interview and filling out a paper application. I was given a call the next day and was offered a position. I came back the next week for pre-employment drug testing and a TB test.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked questions that revolved around the possible dangers of the position or how I would handle someone whom had become irate or unmanageable.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at GEO Group in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was initially quite nervous but after meeting the staff and seeing how friendly and courteous they were i felt more at ease with just being myself and selling myself. The environment isnt as stressful as I imagined it would be so that definitely put all my fears at ease. The qustions are very detailed and so my answers were longer than i had hoped but they were not hard because i had a decent answer for each one. I may have messed up by my body language. They knew I was nervous.
