    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Garda World Security (North York, ON (Canada)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was a three step process. Had one with recruiter who presumably weeds out non-qualified applicants if there references don't check out, then 2nd with top level manager of that branch who based on my specific skill set decided that I could fit somewhere else in the company, and the third with the manager overseeing scheduling who gave a better day-to-day analysis of what the job would entail.
