    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at U.S. Security Associates (Aurora, CO).

    Interview

    The Interview was good. They seemed to effectively check on your references. They evaluate you and place you where ever they want. Seemed to me that they just needed bodies to fill post. So I immediately assumed you would be treated as such.

    Basically just asking your availability and do you have a driver's license transportation of your own and can you pass a drug test, can you pass a background check. After that you pay $30 for your own finger printing then you go to a training class the next day take 12 tests, yes its easy, yes you can help each other, after you make at least 70% on the test you'll probably work that sane week.

    As long as you can pass a drug test and tell them you have a car and are available anytime they'll hire you. They're just looking for warm bodies to fill their client sites.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at U.S. Security Associates (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    I went to the interview only for her to sit me in a room to tell me that she offered the job to someone else the day before. No calls or emails were made. I was upset because I ran around all morning to get a background check for no reason. And she was like, I thought my boss sent the email. This place looked unorganized and was a joke.
