    Flex Officer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at G4S (Louisville, KY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I first applied through Indeed, and got a call the next day. They told me to come into the office for an interview the following Monday. Once I arrived they asked if I filled out the application on the website. I said no, I only submitted my application through Indeed. The receptionist was frustrated and took me to a computer room where I could fill out the application. It took another hour, then I was sitting at that office for another THREE HOURS waiting to be interviewed because they overbooked. The interview itself was a breeze, it was very clear that they were hiring anyone who didn't come off as a crazy person. They ask about your availability, experience, and what you'd feel comfortable doing. They didn't ask me any of the typical interview questions like "give me an example of a tough call you had to make" etc.

    Interview Questions

    Regional Recruiting Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I didn't complete the job application after stopping due to how ridiculous it was. First was Employment history but they actually wanted to know reasons for my gap in employment. To a degree I can get this but their system can't pick up that my previous job ended and I started the new job the following Monday! I completed this part anyway because it wasn't too hard. But right after that was having to fill out the last 10 YEARS of residential history! That's the most absurd waste of time I have ever seen.

    Interview Questions

    • Filling out reasons for gap in employment is fine but having to do it because it was the weekend is ridiculous. Then asking for residential history is quite frankly none of this company's business until I have a job. And even then, it's still none of this company's business.   Answer Question
