    Not too shabby

    Current Employee - Security Officer in Everett, WA

    I have been working at G4S Secure Solutions North America full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Super military friendly. Loves to hire vets and always clears time on the schedule for National guard/Reservist drill weekends without complaint.

    Cons

    Not great pay and the clients always dismiss you as just a security guard. You are now boot scum who's only job is to observe and report. Even as a private, I was given more responsibility on my first tour to Iraq, than I am as security personnel with G4S.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at G4S Secure Solutions North America in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    This was the biggest joke of an interview I have ever been on. Two person interview with HR and the reporting boss. The HR interviewer read directly off a scripted paper and barely made any eye contact and was not at all engaging. Would of been out of there in 10 minutes had I not come prepared with my own questions. The reporting boss had no questions and was "too tired" to answer most of my questions. Was basically told during the interview it would be impossible for someone to come from outside the company and be successful at filling the potion and that they pretty much only hire from within.
