    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at GardaWorld (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    After applying online I got a email to come for prequalify session. There are 2 tests basic comprehension test and x ray test.when you go there, try to sit at the front because on the x-ray test you need to see the image clearly to pass it. Then next step is 1on1 interview. Once you pass that, you will be asked to go through 6-7 week intensive training. The first two weeks are mostly theory class and then you will be trained on the floor. At the end you have to give 4 tests. If you get less than 80% in any one of them, then you get kicked out.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GardaWorld (Broadview, IL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was quick and to the point. The interviewer was kind of unprofessional by bad mouthing the current employees already working there. After the interview I had to followup with the company who contacted me 2 weeks after to inform me that I had got the position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GardaWorld (Winnipeg, MB (Canada)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    An early morning with several rounds of tests including X-ray interpretation, writing, reading then an in person interview. After each round, names are called of those who were successful. Almost three quarters of the room left after the X-ray interpretation skills test. A number of X-ray images are shown on a screen for about 20 seconds each. You then decide whether there is a gun or not in the image and record your answer. If you're taking the test, take time to study what X-ray colours represent. It will make finding metal objects easier and faster.

    Arrive earlier, as it might take another 15-20 min to find where the test takes place. There is no big signs all over, just one stand in front of test room. In your email you will be instructed to go on level 3 over west jet check ins.
    Bring your ID, ticket - printed or on your device, and resume.
    There will be two test. The first one is visual, identifying objects. During the first one make sure your answers match with the slide image. The second test consists of spelling, sentence structure, grammar, logic, pattern recognition, a little math. The tests look simple but require a lot of attention. There were around 80 people; at the end, there were only 20-25 to hand out their resumes, have 3-5 min talk/interview, and wait for the next step of hiring process.
    I was told that I will be contacted 1-2 week after for next instructions. Waiting!
