    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at U.S. Security Associates (Murrells Inlet, SC) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I was picked up from a previous contract. Everything was very disorganized with promises of higher pay when after 6 months we are still at the same amount. There was little or no communication between the Area Manager and the District Manager, which led to some confusing answers.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked about how we get paid.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation process, I needed a job since I was loosing my current one to them. They said I would get paid x amount and that was that.

    Very unimpressed with the company when my interview went so well they offered me the Shift supervisor position as a new hire because of my security and military experience and my professionalism... and when I cam in the next day for training... they told me the had given it to some one else... AFTER they had given it to me... because her husband had gotten the contract for the company... it didn't work out in the end...
