Very quick, verified credentials and had me complete another interview at a different location. They require you be fifteen minutes early to your interview and overall very professional and simple process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at G4S (New York, NY) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I've been a licensed security officer for about 10 years. During this time I've had experience in just about every level of security in the field. I started out in the state of California as a concierge meet and greet in a suit in tie, it aquired me an armed patrolman position in where specific sites were assigned and mobily patrolled by vehicle, conducting spot checks, inspection of surface areas, lock doors, broken glass, etc, also conducting daily activity reports. I've also had several years in loss prevention and cctv. My armed experience has gotten me on Ep details, co-security details with schools. Also while in California I obtained and maintained the 40 hr curriculum in order to have a state issued gard card, a exposed weapons permit, baton, hand cuffing, oc spray, dealing with difficult people, court room demeanor, report writing, cpr, and aed.
    I've just recently finished my level 2-4 certs in the state of Texas, I have several hours of continuing education classes from Construction Law and Policing Sciences in America. I also have 20-24 hrs in advanced handgun and shotgun training.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at G4S (Richmond, VA) in May 2019.

    Interview

    The interview was kind of lengthy, a lot of talking about the business and how it was started. The goal of the business and the work that should be performed by you as an security officer.
    You get to explain why you’re interested in the position and why you think you would be a good fit. I think they look to people who already have experience in that field.

    Short and to the point. Very relaxed, did not feel pressured. Had to wait about 20 minutes to interview as the supervisor was dealing with a situation at the moment. Kind of got to see the job in action.

    Interview

    Basic run-of-the-mill interview process and very predictable. They sure did preach a lot in the interview questioning. Is they were preaching about dress attire I am staring at one of the officers in charge out of uniform half-dressed.
