Security Supervisor Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Palladion Services.
Interview Details – Initial communication was via email, from a job posting on Craigslist. I received a phone call shortly after submitting my resume asking to set up an initial meeting at their office. The interview process went through the HR person, both account managers, and the owner of the company in four separate 1:1 interviews. I received a phone call very shortly after the interview process was complete with a job offer.
Interview Question – It was pretty standard. Just make sure you remember what the account managers tell you as you might be asked by the owner. Attention to detail is tested there. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate.
Concierge/Security Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Palladion Services.
Interview Details – I contacted the company through email and included my resume. I received a call back within a few business days. During that initial call, I spoke with someone who asked me some general screening questions. Towards the end of that call, I was asked to come in for an interview. Once at Palladion's home office in the financial district of Boston, I filled out an application and provided information necessary to conduct a complete background check. (I was relieved and comforted to know that if I were to get this great opportunity that I would be working with people who had to pass muster!) I then interviewed with several people; one turned out to be my manager and the other one turned out to be the head of the company. Their questions were specific and probing and seemed to flesh out my strengths and weaknesses. The process was relatively challenging. I was glad that they gave me an opportunity to share with them all that I had to offer. Everyone treated me in a professional manner. The home office was neat, clean and organized and appeared to be run quite professionally. After a few days, I was asked to interview with an existing client. I spent about 30-45 minutes interviewing with the client and I was very impressed with the quality of the client and the caliber of employees that I would have the opportunity to serve. Overall, from the interview process, I felt like Palladion Services really wanted to get to know me and what I could do for them and I also felt like I had an opportunity to get to know them and the people that I might end up supporting. The interview process was very thorough. Now that I am hired, I am expected to keep my skills and contribute to the overall high service standards of our team. My skills and contributions are regularly reviewed. There are many opportunities to talk with management for feedback and career growth.
Interview Question – What was unexpected was that there were many questions. If you were just looking for any old job, I think the interview process would reveal that. I came in well prepared and am at an amazing site. Answer Question
