    Paramedic Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boca Raton, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at G4S (Boca Raton, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Ridiculous. It was a group interview that focused on everyone, in front of everyone else. For the Boca Raton, FL G4S office, you need nothing to prepare you for the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I was contacted via email to schedule an interview. I arrived at the location and was escorted by an employee who then co-interviewed me with the manager. It was a very relaxed environment and had the chance to thoroughly explain my qualifications. The manager asked follow up questions to each of my answers to dig deeper.

    Site Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at G4S (Atlanta, GA) in May 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online, got a call to setup an interview 2 days later. I arrived after fighting Atlanta traffic for over an hour to their Atlanta headquarters. I sat in the waiting room for 15 minutes and the interviewer had to ask for my information to pull up my documents. The position was filled, and I was offered an regular unarmed guard position or they could look into an armed guard position. My experience, combat arms in the military with 2 combat deployments in leadership, bachelors of science from one of 5 senior military colleges, a year running a small business, and currently working for a different security company. The respectful and reputable choice would have been to call and tell me the position I applied for was filled, and not try to fill an overly qualified applicant into the lowest position you have available.

    Site Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at G4S (Nashville, TN) in April 2018.

    Interview

    A complete waste of time. Bring you in for an interview, then tell you you have multiple interviews for position applied to after they get you there. (Should have had a clue when I asked what position I was interviewing for and she could not tell me specifically) Interview goes well, however, sorry the next person is out I will call you later. No call, have to track down next person myself three days later. Make contact and set up interview. Do interview and again get the news they want to move forward right away but hear sorry I have to send your resume to client for interview if they are interested. I don't really have any say in the process, after all I am the general manager and now we have an entirely new command for this. I just wanted to meet you. I will send out resume right away though I have no time to waste. Days later I email saying I need to start working so I can just take an officer position to start. GM says I am forwarding your resume right now and sure we will get on it. Get email from human resources, fill out another application. Confirm no need to come in. Next I get email for another interview! I already interviewed twice for a position two spots higher but I need to interview again? Really. I say I will not come in again because I already have twice and its 45 minute drive each way. No response. I tell them to go ahead and pull applications since they can't seem to figure out what they are doing. FASTEST part of the process, within minutes all applications show unsuccessful. WOW. Emailed GM who was also cc'ed on emails. Told him I would move forward if anything changes and they need people. No response. Complete waste of time and effort. Considering my referral to the company came from someone every high in the ranks you would figure it would mean something. Nope, not here, just a number machine.
