    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.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Walden Security in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was called to set up a time for an interview about a week after I applied online. I interviewed one on one with the HR manager. She asked me how I heard about the company. After I answered, she asked me where I lived and if I was willing to work the night shift. She then asked if I would be available the next day for training. Next I was given a drug test, which had instant results. After that I was asked to fill out a paper version of the application. The next day at training I was fingerprinted for a background check. I was not actually employed until I completed three days of unpaid training and passed a test. One thing that was not mentioned during the interview process was the over $120 that was taken out of your first paycheck for employment fees, including the background check, fingerprinting, and "administrative fees" among other things. Overall, there wasn't much to this interview really.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Walden Security in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was asked a few simple questions while the owner watched. After a few minutes, he took over the interview and started talking about how great the company was and how I needed to come work for them. This went on for over an hour and I just sat there and mostly nodded my head. Despite the obvious red flag of him selling me so hard on his company, I accepted his offer and quickly found out that most of what he said was completely untrue.
