    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Walden Security.

    Interview

    The interview was really pathetic now that I look back. In a nutshell, if it sounds to good to be true it usually isn't. The interviewer doubtfully, had a h/s diploma, bad grammar. She asked if she could "Axe me a question". Little did I know, this was the beginning of humiliation. I am so ashamed of being affiliated with this company.

    Negotiation

    Yes, I was very pleased with the negotiation, however, everything we negotiated was bogus. They will say anything to get you on-board. Then after you've invested in background checks, fingerprint uniforms and license you're stuck

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Walden Security (Chattanooga, TN) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was explained to me what I needed to do, when to come in. I was told there is a two day orientation I had to attend and I would get a background check and be fingerprinted. I did not know I would not be paid for attending the orientation at that time nor did I know I would have to pay for the background check and fingerprints.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about what kind of security experience you have. They are looking for someone who has previous comparable experience. Then they will pick out one of your most recent jobs from your application and ask you to explain what you did and what kind of customer contact you had. Just remain positive and they will probably hire you right on the spot if you dressed nice (wear a coat and tie if you have one)   1 Answer
    • They ask why you left a previous job. Just try to be honest but BE POSITIVE. If you complain about your old job they may think you will cause problems at your new job   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Walden Security in October 2014.

    Interview

    It was a template interview they asked why you wanted to work for walden and how you handle people. There was no question and answer period. When I went they had a line of people waiting to be interviewed so it took me 2 hours before I interviewed. The interview last about 7 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    • There were not any difficult questions just maintain confidence no matter what you say and you will be fine.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They want you to complete training for a security certification that is required before you can work for them. The training is unpaid and they were not willing to provide details of the pay or job site until after training was successfully completed and the drug and background screening came back without issues. They made me do a swab drug test not a pee test.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Walden Security.

    Interview

    Submitted online application and was called in for an interview one week later. It was a panel interview and was very straightforward as far as the Q&A goes. The interview focused on behavioral interview questions and were not tricky at all. Everyone on the panel asked a few questions, but the HR Manager from a different location did most of the talking.
