    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA.

    Interview

    There was the initial interview where you met with the hiring manager who discussed your resume, then there was the interview with the Branch Manager who discussed the same thing. Then you had the interview with the Account Manager, which was interesting as they already issued me uniforms and scheduled training, so I feel like that interview was more for show as I already received the job.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (Westborough, MA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I already read a review about this company from about a year or so ago. it was spot on and nothing's changed. basically just applied, got called in about a week later, filled out a crap load of paper work about you agreeing to be good with drug tests and "why do you want to work here?" (be prepared for that one question; they beat you over the head with it in the paperwork and in the next part... Then the fun part, they sit you in an office and read about 30 questions to your from a stack of papers (my guy was real monotone with it) about what you would do if you saw a guy robbing a car (also in the paperwork) or what interests you in security and last but not least, if you wanna work night shift and mandatory overtime.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (Oakland, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the graveyard security officer position In walnut creek. A week after I completing my application which was fairy easy, they called me to schedule an interview I couldn't come the next day so I chose the day after. The interview was in The Oakland office and dress was business casual although some guy wore a suit I don't think that was necessary. A nice shirt tie and slacks would be perfect for a guy anyway the interview went very smoothly. I over prepared but she asked If I had a guard card which I don't so I'm going to take the class on an cash advance basis so I'll be paying back the 125 back at 25 a month out of my check. I got the feeling that they look for straight forward people so relax but just be you. straight up and be honest and you'll pretty much Have the job in the bag and also use your common sense. I took my drug test that day because she offered me a position in the first interview. Normally you beedctocmeet with the manager/supervisor on the follow up interview. The drug test was the swab for 3mins I didn't pass. Dry mouth or something?so I had to go a few buildings down to do another test but I'm drug and and alcohol free so no biggie. It's really laid b a co but still very professional the class will be three consecutive days and will be from 9 am to 4pm and dress is business casual or else they will rescind your offer for employment

    Negotiation
