    Shift Supervisor Interview

    Interview Details

    Hiring and interview process is a joke, they will pretty much hire anyone with a pulse. Honestly most of the employees that they have given me are pretty close to remedial. Every now and then we get a good one and i try to retain them and bring/keep them on my shift but the good ones see this for what it is and usually leave before their first year is up. This may just be one site but it is still ridiculous, it is almost as if they don't even fully interview anyone

    Security Guard Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, recieved a phone call about a week later, was notified of openings with the company and was told I would recieve an email the next day if they were interested in moving the process forward. I never received that email. However, about two months later, I got a call out of nowhere from a women notifying me I had been chosen to have an interview if I was interested.

     I went to the interview and it was fairly straightforward. I was not asked any out of the ball-park questions, and a large part of the process was reviewing the information I provided, signing it as being true, and so forth. I was also asked to write a report for an incident, I am assuming they wanted to see any skills in writing and information sharing.

     I went through dates and hours and locations I could work, and they said I would hear from them in two days, and I never got a call back.

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA in November 2013.

    It took far too long to hire me (five weeks). This is mainly due to the length amount of background checking they do. I showed up in a suit and got the job after the interview.
