    I have been working at Securitas Security Services USA full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The pros are the fact that you don't have to do much but you can still have a good time at your job. Securitas also has lots of internal job posting so you can go up higher in the food chain. If you work in Portland never ever accept the Grimm Site because its just a bad choice.

    Cons

    Can be boring, and it can even be an utterly horrible decision based on the sites you work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up what you're doing, but try to pay a little bit more because sometimes the wages don't pay the bills.

    Security Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakland, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakland, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the graveyard security officer position In walnut creek. A week after I completing my application which was fairy easy, they called me to schedule an interview I couldn't come the next day so I chose the day after. The interview was in The Oakland office and dress was business casual although some guy wore a suit I don't think that was necessary. A nice shirt tie and slacks would be perfect for a guy anyway the interview went very smoothly. I over prepared but she asked If I had a guard card which I don't so I'm going to take the class on an cash advance basis so I'll be paying back the 125 back at 25 a month out of my check. I got the feeling that they look for straight forward people so relax but just be you. straight up and be honest and you'll pretty much Have the job in the bag and also use your common sense. I took my drug test that day because she offered me a position in the first interview. Normally you beedctocmeet with the manager/supervisor on the follow up interview. The drug test was the swab for 3mins I didn't pass. Dry mouth or something?so I had to go a few buildings down to do another test but I'm drug and and alcohol free so no biggie. It's really laid b a co but still very professional the class will be three consecutive days and will be from 9 am to 4pm and dress is business casual or else they will rescind your offer for employment
