    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at American Security Programs (Arlington, VA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    The process was pretty straight forward. Applied online and talked to the boss the next day. The key is communicating that you are fully confident in handling any security situation while being able to communicate effectively with the customer. Understanding the proper use of force is all highly necessary. Most of the time they want someone who will work with the customers in a polite manner.

    Security Officer Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Security Programs (Goose Creek, SC) in September 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process was very short. The HR Manager looked over my resume and determined that I qualified for the job based on military service and previous work experience. He then explained what the job was, what hours I may possibly work, and how job was a 24/7 operation and would I be available to work holidays. He then handed me a packet of paperwork to fill out and told me to bring it with me to the first day of training completely filled out.

    Interview Questions

    • They only asked questions that pertained to immediately starting. It was really more like directions to get the process rolling. I asked more questions than they did.   Answer Question
