I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at U.S. Security Associates.

Interview Details – I don't really remember the process all that much except the day I submitted my resume, I was called into the office for an interview. It was one interview and it went well. I already had 10 years security behind me. I thought both Cheryl and Mike (Recruiter and Field Supervisor) were friendly and helpful as they placed me right away. Thought the office was a little cluttered and they never seem to have the right size uniforms in stock.

Interview Question – None. All the questions were routine and easy to answer.   Answer Question
