Very Easy Interview
Merchandiser Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
The process took 4 months - interviewed at Guardsmark in January 2012.
Interview Details – video, asked questions, preview of job at a specific location.
Internal Audit Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Guardsmark in January 2012.
Interview Details – Reception of the HR personnel was warm, details offered of the company's focus to see if it aligns with the interviewees then was called in for panel interview.
Site Supervisor Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Guardsmark in June 2009.
Interview Details – At first, I called the company in reference to an ad I saw in the paper stating that positions were available between $11-14 per hour. I was told I would have to come into the office and fill out an application. I did so a few days later. I dressed up in a suit and tie, came with my credentials ready, and when the HR rep noticed that I had a Bachelor's degree, her eyes lit up. I spoke with the branch manager about a position (where I still work now) and was essentially offered a job right then and there which was contingent upon passing an irregular client interview. The process was very easy and I did not spend more than 3-4 hours at the office. Considering I basically walked away with a job, that was not too bad!
