I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Pinkerton Government Services.
Interview Details – The interview was very generic, it was basically ten of the most expected interview questions. There paperwork is a little complicated. There is a test that you take onsite, a writing assessment, you have to complete a drug screening within a certain amount of time, and you have to pass a back ground check. If you are new to security you will also have to be processed for a security clearance and will have to apply for a security guard card and have your fingerprints taken. You do have to pay for the guard card yourself but it is yours afterwards. You can invest a lot of time in the hiring process and then be denied a clearance, at that point you will not be considered for employment.
