    Management Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Protection 1.

    Interview

    Lengthy and Laborious process filled with unnecessary banter mostly about the personal life of the employees and how they would e more productive if they would stop mixing business and pleasure

    Negotiation

    Company actually reneged on initial scope of responsibility. Turned down other offers thinking responsibilities were going to be greater than what was actually offered. Typical of this company's inconsistent management style.

    Commercial Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charlotte, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Protection 1 (Charlotte, NC) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I met with the Sales Manager and we just had a laid back and simple conversation concerning my past experience and what I can bring to the table. Straight forward and honest experience. There was a drug test, background check and just a couple of people I shook hands with and spoke briefly with on my way out. Seriously, very easy. They just want to make sure you are sane, competent and can be trusted with all the rope they allow you.

    NOC Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, DE
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Protection 1 (Newark, DE) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter via phone and e-mail. Then talked to hiring Manager from before being calling in for a meeting with local manager and IT lead. The interview was more along the lines of a telemarketing level interview with questions about transportation. I was told they were hiring one noc analyst and two technicians. Then when I interviewed they said two noc analysts and one technician. After the interview and speaking to the recruiting company, who said they placed both the HR manager and the general manager at that location, they said they had received an offer for me and were preparing the paperwork. I accepted another job offer paying 2x the amount they were, and ultimately never heard back from them with offer.

    Interview Questions

    • None, questions were very low level like "Do you have transportation".   Answer Question

    Interview

    For more advanced positions, managers prefer industry experience, interview is usually at least 2 managers. They will typically perform a phone interview, 1:1 or group interview and proceed with an offer once they determine if you are hired. The background check sometimes takes a while.

    Interview Questions

    • I didn't feel there was anything difficult or unexpected, certainly helps being in the industry.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Ask for more than what you want, they will offer less.

    Commercial Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norwood, MA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Protection 1 (Norwood, MA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was a meeting, then 2 phone screens then another meeting where the 2 managers were very informative and helpful explaining the position in detail and addressing all of my concerns. They made me an offer and after careful consideration the base salary offered was just way to low.

    Reasons for Declining

    The base salary was to low, commission structure is very confusing with too many layers.
