    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at G4S (Atlanta, GA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    For me it was kind of neutral, I had an interview with one person, it was suppose to be two. It was a bit rush because they had two more people behind me.

    Interview Questions

    • They ask me about my background mostly, I mean criminally. Then they asked a couple of the typical interview situational question. One that stands out is the one where they asked describe a stressful situation and describe how I handled it.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Wasnt one...they made it sound like the interview process was a big deal, but if they think you can hold a D and G license or a D license at minimum, you're in. They just want as many bodies as possible, since they will lose many every month.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at G4S (Memphis, TN) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was very informal. They were backed up with plenty of potential employees and everything was unorganized. You're interviewed in the back one on one, mostly questioned about gaps in the resume. If you do not have any gaps in your resume it is a very laid back just getting to know you and seeing how well you mesh with the team.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you know about private security?

    Interview

    Was called in a few days later after posting my resume to there website. Went in for the interview with the area manager and I was asked relevant information comparing my job history to this job. Very relaxed environment and friendly.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Didn't have to negotiate anything. Everything they offered was worth taking. I will let you know that the back ground check is very intense. The training that you get once hired is very good and needed training. What helped me decide to take the job was the free continuing education that you can take during your employment.

    Simply Applied on website and waited for a call. They called me two weeks later for an interview. You go into the office and speak with the Recruiter. He is a straightforward gentleman who will ask all of your questions to the best of his ability.

    No negotiation at all. You don't find out your salary either until after initial 40 hour training is complete. Unless you apply for a specific location and designation.
