    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GEO Group (Houston, TX) in April 2018.

    Interview

    It was a very laid back interview. I had to pay for parking, but no longer than an hour. The interviewer was very helpful; he identified some areas in my resume that should have been corrected prior to submitting it. No need to be nervous at all.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    HR was very polite on the phone. The interview at the main office Boca Raton, FL was disgusting. I was told I would be interviewed by 3 people and their names. The first lady was terrible. She told me the accounting position is not good for me because I have kids. Basically, she told me I have to change my career. The third one told she doesn't have time for interview today. Please, don't loose your time even going there. In case you have kids, you are not welcomed there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at GEO Group (Boca Raton, FL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process is a total joke. The need anyone to fill the positions they would hire a cadaver if it had fingerprints and could pass a background check. Took them FOREVER to get all their HR and hiring stuff in order. Could have found ten more jobs before they finally got their act together.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GEO Group.

    Interview

    The complete hiring process took about one month. When I arrived for the interview, I had to wait forty-five minutes before they actually interviewed me. Apparently, they were running behind. By the time the panel interviewed me, you could tell they were tired and realized it was a horrible idea to schedule so many interviews back to back. The questions were easy and overall the actual interview was pleasant.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions started in English and then one of the members of the panel starting speaking in Spanish because he wanted to make sure I both understood and could respond back to him.   1 Answer
