I applied online – interviewed at Tyco.
The interview was a pleasant experience. I met the hiring manager at a Starbucks near the Irvine headquarters. He asked behavior questions, and a lot of questions involving my past experience in sales. He was very professional, and I dressed to impress. He explained the companies expectations and what the company expects in a sales role.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Tyco in February 2015.
I applied online through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. The staffing agency has been horrendous throughout this entire process, kudos to Tyco for sticking with me. The interviewer didn't really ask a question, she just explained the position for an hour. The position is very overwhelming, but the interviewer explained it very well. She only asked very generic predictable questions, and even when I tried to answer she steamrolled me and went back into describing the position's duties.

Interview set-up through a temp agency. I interviewed for administrative assistant for 2 different departments. I interviewed with the Operations manager and the Service Department Manager together. They took turns asking questions. They had me talk through my resume. The process was a bit adversarial. The Ops manager questioned my seriousness and whether I could fit into their work environment.

The interview was very basic, I was interviewed by (3) different managers. They explain what the role/position is, telling you what to expect. You won't know what they are talking about until you really get yourself into the business.
