Security Officer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL
Accepted Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at G4S Secure Solutions (Miami, FL).

Interview

Simply you'll get a call to come in for an interview. Upon arrival you're seated with about 15 other job seekers in the waiting area. Then after 20 minutes or so we all proceed to the interview room which is held like a infomercial about the company and the job you applied for. Then we all get "screen" by completing a medical physical paid for by the company then afterwards a few days later you come back for a psychological test per se - which really is a test to test your patience rather than what is between your ears.

    Got a call a day or two after I applied for the position. Honestly the easiest interview of my life basically I knew what this was due to a friend of mine already in the same position. If you have a pulse and you are a warm body that shows up to work on a regular basis they will take you.

    you show up and they ask you if you want the job after giving you a brief description of it. management is there just to collect a paycheck, they don't care about hiring the right people. seriously, you aren't interviewed at all. other locations with better management might do things differently.
