    Security Guard Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Securitas Security Services USA.

    Interview Details

    I had one interview. wasn't asked many questions. very informal. The person giving me the interview wasn't very professional and the office was messy with random stacks of junk everywhere. seemed kind of shady for a security company. It was very easy and I felt way overdressed with my nice shirt and pants. The person conducting the interview basically just told me that hours are terrible and I would be called in at all times of the night.

    Interview Questions
    • would you be willing to come in to work if you got called at anytime, even if its just for an hour?   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I declined because the pay was pretty much minimum wage and the hours are awful and extremely unpredictable. I wasn't desperate enough to accept the offer.

    Security Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA.

    Interview Details

    Applying was interesting, because there was an online assessment, which not all security companies employ. I thought that was a decent way to help weed out unqualified individuals before actually interviewing them. The interviewing process was decent and they did a saliva swab drug test during, which was an impressive addition to the interview. They had training videos and a decent training process after applying and interviewing.

    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiating. They were set hours, set pay, and a set "office."

    Interview Details

    It helps to be referred by someone, because it's who you know, and hopefully you worked your way up kissing the right butt (of someone who was most likely not qualified for their own job, but they got it by kissing the right butt and depend on those below them to make them look good)

    Interview Questions
    • Managing a multi-million $ business with very high turnover and constant client issues   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Never able to get the expected salary. Carrot dangled is annual bonus which is very difficult to obtain.
