    Walkin, bring resume and Govt ID. They get you to fill out the job application along with the Govt forms required to become an SO.

    Then you get interviewed possibly within the day/hour.

    Offered a job within the interview, and advised when training begins, and how to move forward. Very swift process.

    Job App has a few case based questions and a few scenario questions

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Paladin Security Group.

    Interview Details

    3 interviews with three different people. Awful experience. Seemed that they are not hiring a Security Guard, but a Vice President for the Company. Told that I would have to undergo 4 days training, but didn't tell that it will be an unpaid training for FULL 4 days.

    Ask them about the wages before they hire you OR you sign the contract. Ask for a copy of the contract. Just don't be scared.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Paladin Security Group.

    Interview Details

    A fairly straightforward process. I was given about 20 multiple choice questions on English grammar and a short narrative to write. After this I had three consecutive interviews; the first to tell me about the position, the second to ask about my experience and qualifications and the third to ask some more searching questions about my personality.

    Interview Details

    I applied, filled a questionaire online. Went in for an interview within that week (even showed up late!) yet they were still kind. The process did take two hours (instead of the one hour or so I was expecting) but I was basically hired on the spot.... and thats a common story for most people.

    The hiring process is very kind and very good!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Paladin Security Group in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had to complete an on-line application and then got called by the office to attend for a personal interview. The on-line application had an english test and asked the usual biography stuff.

    At the office I met with the recruiter and had a 1/2 hour interview. I was told that my references would be checked and I'd be called later with the results. About four days later I got called to meet with a manager for a second interview. The manager aksed me a few questions mostly about my background and what I wanted to see from the company. He said I was pretty much hired but he wanted to make sure I fit where I was going to be assigned.

    Healthcare Security Guard Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Paladin Security Group in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    I initially applied on-line when I was looking for work in a different Security Company and was sold on their advertised commitment to training. I was contacted by an HR representative within the week and given a quick phone interview with some basic questions and set up with a proper interview with the Client Service Manager.

    Upon arrival to the office, I met with the HR Rep and was treated very cordially and given a quick run-down about what would be involved in the Healthcare Contract, as well as some perks and benefits for working with the company. I was directed to the CSM's office and had an interview approximately half an hour in length which covered everything from my history, skills, career aspirations, and personality. I was impressed with the process and was made to feel like my skill set would be a welcome addition to what I perceived was a professional outfit.

    I was hired that day and given an orientation meeting that day with a number of other new hires. We were given a presentation on the company culture and copies of the employee manual which was well laid out and answered a fair number of questions that we had. We were also given the paperwork for submission to the municipal police department to get our company security licences. (Back before the current Security Services and Investigators Act of Alberta came into effect).

    I was impressed the whole process and the lack of waiting that I had to endure before starting with this company.
