    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GardaWorld in May 2017.

    Interview

    There wasn't really questions asked. All correspondence was done thru email, and there was medical screenings, a Physical fitness test, Background check, and a written online test. The biggest thing is to make sure that you have your DD214's ready if you are former military and also have a passport.

    Armed Messenger Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GardaWorld (Roseburg, OR) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was unable to attend an in-person interview, as I lived several hours away, so the Branch Manager called me on my personal cell phone. He discussed the position with me, described the requirements and job duties, and then asked if I was still interested. When I told him I was still interested, he told me he was recommending me for the position and advised that I would then be sent to the background investigation, which would come in email. Beyond this point, it was extremely difficult to get in contact with the Branch Manager until my first day.

    Interview Questions

    • After hearing the job duties and requirements, are you still interested in this position?   1 Answer
