    Security Guard Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Universal Protection Service in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    There was no questions for the interview which is always a little sketchy in my book. They had us wait for about an hour. I was not very impressed. It seemed by unorganized and again, they did not ask us very many questions, if any. It was just, have you worked security before? and would you be willing to travel to work at this location? That was about it.

    Reasons for Declining

    The work site was too far away from my house and the pay wasnt that great

    Assistant Security Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Universal Protection Service in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interviewing process was innovative and different from most security agencies. Given that this is a management-level position, that questions were mainly about the supervising and training of subordinate personnel. Also, a good portion of the interview was based on decision-making prowess.

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Universal Protection Service.

    Interview Details

    Simple interviews more of a "get to know you" , they go over some things of whats expected of you and how things play out, they hire within the company so keep an eye on posts for other / better positions after 6 months - 1 year of working for a company.

    Negotiation Details
    Because this company bought out the former company I was working for everything was grandfathered in

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Universal Protection Service in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had one interview, that was wonderful. All the initial people I met and spoke with on the phone leading from scheduling my interview to my first training day was fantastic. Attitudes and personal interaction was a great experience. I had a one on one, 1 hour interview with a very exemplary and professional gentleman that was also friendly. I had a one day presentation with videos and test pamphlets, and again the staff was great. My first day of training was smooth and conducted with another male individual that was great to work with.
