    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at GardaWorld (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Interview was 2 hrs. & 40 mins long - interviewer was friendly & engaging. Asked many questions about various scenarios & how i would handle it - both as a security guard & as a potential shift supervisor. Made me think "outside the box" & beyond what the training covered.

    Interview Questions

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GardaWorld (Sudbury, ON (Canada)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Was none.. they are so desperate for guards they just give hiring packages. Rate of pay was established at 11.42 an hour regardless of experience or skills. now shows they are willing to hire 12-14 an hour based on what you able to provide as skills. seems very unfair.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at GardaWorld (North York, ON (Canada)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was a three step process. Had one with recruiter who presumably weeds out non-qualified applicants if there references don't check out, then 2nd with top level manager of that branch who based on my specific skill set decided that I could fit somewhere else in the company, and the third with the manager overseeing scheduling who gave a better day-to-day analysis of what the job would entail.
