    Security Officer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Brentwood, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at J. Paul Getty Trust (Brentwood, CA) in January 2020.

    Interview

    First of all, the supervisors interviewing me were more than half an hour late to getting with me, but the overall interview was very pleasant. I was warned that if they didn't make eye contact with me, it was because they were taking notes but I was able to keep them engaged and they were actually social with me. I got the second part of the interview on the same day so that solidified my job offer.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at J. Paul Getty Trust.

    Interview

    The initial interview was an in-person interview for approximately one hour. The questions were standard and predetermined (so that everyone got the same questions). Everyone was pleasant and helpful. I had to wait a few minutes after my appointment time, but it wasn't a problem.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at J. Paul Getty Trust.

    Interview

    Sent cover letter and resume. Received interview because former colleague knew the hiring party. Job description given by hiring supervising was misleading. I was told I would have a desk next to windows. I was told I would assist with a variety of challenging tasks. In reality I sat in a windowless room and did manual labor all day. Very disappointing!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at J. Paul Getty Trust (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I got a phone interview 3 months after I applied online. Mainly to go over your current responsibilities and skills and to go over the role in more detail. In person interview within a month. Met with a panel to go over standardized interview questions. Took another month or so for final decision email. Very long process.
