Security Guard Interview

Easy Interview


The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Six Flags in February 2012.


Interviewers were pretty easy to manipulate- and one was a security supervisor, the other a loss prevention full timer. Walked out knowing more about both of them than they did about me. This is a position you should be going into with some sort of criminal justice, security or military background. Any proof that you can bring with you (List of school courses relating to the field, example police/incident reports you've written), make it very easy for you because you'll appear more confident. They will try to trick you or throw your guard off with some of the questions- Examples I wasn't expecting, but handled fine: 1. What would you do if a guest vomited on you? 2. How do you defend yourself if you are punched or kicked by a criminal? 3. What would you do with an open kill zone gate? The loss prevention interviewer loves to test your patience. He'll ask you if you drink alcohol- if you respond no, he'll go on to ask if you ever have before work, school, etc. (Non-sense stuff). The environment around you during the process, you are going to feel like a number. Picture numerous long tables, supervisors on one side, candidates on the other. You hear the answers everyone else is giving around you and they may not even be the same dept.

Interview Questions

  • What would you do if you were vomited on by a guest?   Answer Question
  • You find an abandoned baby in the park with no one around, can you move it or pick the infant up?   Answer Question


They like to make you think you can negotiate and that they will place you were your skills are. You can check off where your pleasure would be, but the bottom line is, you don't have many options until you are lead or supervisor. They'll love calling you all hours of the night and day (yes, ive bee called in a 3 AM because people have gotten sick, injured, etc) and demand you to come in. You have the right to say no, but they'll card you for it, two which can lead to termination. If you have other offers on the table, certainly go elsewhere. 13-16 hour shifts are not uncommon and you will not see overtime for it.
