    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at G4S (San Diego, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Different then most. Mostly due to contract being lost by my old company to G4S. Not a bad thing. But what the interviewers did not fully understand was that our team had just gotten off a Graveyard shift along with previously working 13 days in a row. We were considered unprofessional.

    G4S Security Officer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at G4S.

    Interview

    The interview process was a bit of a pain. They made a big deal about gaps in employment for their background investigation and couldn't seem to get it though their heads that I had been on terminal leave from the military for close to 3 months before my retirement. It wasn't so much an interview as much as one big investigation. They put an awful lot of emphasis on military service for a job that only pays $12.50/hr.
     The HR staff is very unorganized and I had to re-submit paperwork with sensitive information on it after it had been lost by them.
