    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at HSS in December 2012.

    Interview

    IT was about an hour long interview with the recruiter. I think it was fairly standard.The process does go by fast. If they want you, you will know it. Once the phone interview is complete, you will go to the corporate office for a panel interview and to finalize things. If they pay for your trip, you're probably already hired.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at HSS (Denver, CO) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Interviews are generally conducted by the account manager, one time only. You will be asked about your skills, asked to define "integrity", and given various scenario-based questions. The last question is "Tell us why we should hire you." This is your chance to stand out from other candidates, so be prepared for that one with something that isn't already in your resume.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at HSS (Arlington, TX) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The process was 3 interviews first with a low level HR employee then two with the area manager. The process was two days long at a local hotel chain and it was a mass hiring event. There were over 100 people there to interview for the positions. Alomost none of the potential candidates were in proper interview attire, and though the staff made the atmosphere very non formal they did not spend much time with those that did not bother to dress the part. After the interviews I recieved my offer of employment the salary was static so I accepted and began all paperwork and training the next day at the hotel.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at HSS (Walnut Creek, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was great but screening and site placement takes nearly a month. Just a heads up! Background check, drug test, lots of immunizations and a decent amount of traveling. Interview consisted of reviewing previous job history to determine competencies. Just be very honest and be yourself for consideration. Company isnt too harsh with their employee selection. People are given a chance.

    Security Officer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HSS.

    Interview

    Submitted resume and got a call from the regional recruiter about 3 business days later. He gave me a phone interview and asked about a few scenarios fairly easy. Then he directed me to my area recruiter here in Denver and then scheduled me for an interview.

    This is what I find unprofessional. The recruiter called me an hour before my interview stating that the position with the schedule I wanted was already unavailable because the onsite hiring manager gave it away. They tried working with me to find another location with a set schedule. Idk about you but there is a reason why these positions are open in a bad way. I would seriously look elsewhere unless you are seriously desperate for a job!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HSS (Colorado Springs, CO) in June 2014.

    I went to their office, filled out a questionnaire and spoke with the old program manager. It was a pretty simple and stress free process. He explained a few other things about the contract and some other positions they have. The whole process was fairly quick and easy. They were interviewing a lot of other people at the time so I did have to wait past my scheduled time.
