    Client Account Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Valley View, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Safeguard Properties (Valley View, OH) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I found it to be very laid back and easy-going. The manager who interviewed me was very friendly and made me feel completely at ease. This interview was less and interview and more just a conversation between two people, so I really didn't feel intimidated at all. I briefly read up on Safeguard Properties on their website prior to attending the interview so that I would be more familiar with what they were about, but there were still plenty of things I didn't know about the company. After I was hired, the process was relatively easy to get "all of my ducks in line." Signing up for medical/dental/vision benefits was self-explanatory, and my direct deposit went through after my first month of employment (Safeguard has since moved to direct-deposit only).

    Estimator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Brooklyn, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Safeguard Properties (Brooklyn, OH) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Interview was quick and brief, felt more like it was hey do you want to work here? Sure when can you start? Interview lasted about 5-10 minutes. The staffing agency that I applied through pretty much did all the interview work and sent me to Safeguard. Seemed like the person interviewing me was new to management. They were actually filling in for the department manager that wasn't able to perform my interview.

    Interview

    They will take anyone because they can't keep help when they rip them off. I was deceived as to what the pay was and as to the time that payment would be paid. I was told to trust them because they were a good Christian company.

    Accounts Payable Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Valley View, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Safeguard Properties (Valley View, OH) in June 2014.

    Interview

    After passing the telephone interview and being told I had to take an online test, which I was told I passed, I was finally called back for an interview. I was emailed the employment forms and interview information and while going over them I noticed that they want me to sign a form allowing them to use my credit score against me for employment. While this is illegal it is legal if you sign the form. Further research from this site and a few others prompted me to cancel the interview. I have no desire to get mixed up in a company that has poor reviews from their employees and political drama within the management. Seems that they might want to do a 180 and change the outlook for the company and also find ways to limit their employees from being yelled at and harassed my their managers.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview questions were the normal ones, what did you do at this company, what were you main tasks, do you have a criminal record, are you in college, how soon will you graduate, things like that. The online test involved typing written sentences and then listening to another set of sentences out loud and having to type them. Multi tasking where you had to click same or different for sets of numbers while answering customer service calls and assigning them to customer service reps. Large section of questions where you agree or disagree on things like...I get mad at my coworkers if they suggest changes...agree or disagree. Was not hard at all but severely dumb if you ask me. These tests need to be job based like what are Journal Entries, what are Pivot Tables, things like that.   Answer Question
