Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Universal Protection Service.

Interview

You get called back to an office, they ask about work experience, as long as you have customer service skills youll be good. They ask about the hours you can work and thats it. Super easy. Mine was a group interview with three of us at once. They as what area youre in and give you something close to home.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Universal Protection Service (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Extremely easy but glorified. They ask you to fill out a mock incident report on your trip to the interview, easily done since I have a strong and intense sense for detail and recollection. Next I was asked to fill out the typical employment forms and went through an interview lasting about fifteen minutes. The interviewer was surprised when I asked questions of my own relevant to the job. I was then offered a temp job from one site to another, that's the only thing available she said. I was off for over two months then offered a home that lasted another two months. I'm still waiting....
