    Security Officer I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Madison, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at JBM Patrol & Protection (Madison, WI).

    Interview

    The interviewer will schedule interviews back to back so is a quick and basic interview. Interview is a two stage process. 1st is the face to face and the 2nd you wait a week while your references are "checked" and you get hired. During the interview stage where you meet face to face, the interviewer goes over your availability, your desired pay (which is pointless as they pay per site), any previous experience, and an overview of the company. You are also given a chance to ask questions. You are also handed a sheet with a list of expenses you will have to fork out to get the job. You are asked to agree with the charges to move forward in the interview.
    There is no dress code. I dressed business casual and was dressed better than 90% of the office.

    Interview

    Human Resources "Lieutenant" Steven Kolb interviews you at their Madison office on Kinglsey Way. First you have to fill out this bizarre questionnaire, which is a reading skills test for weeding out 4th grade level Officers. A very strange test at the door, I have NEVER seen before.

    I would recommend that all applicants negotiate for the $18 an hour that some Security Offices are being paid, but they are ALSO are being told not to tell anyone about their wage.

    Security Officer I Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at JBM Patrol & Protection (Madison, WI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Very basic with very simple questions. I am pretty sure that anyone called in for interview is already hired because of how desperate they are for people. So long as you pass a background check (you don't even need to pass a drug test) you are hired. Just show up to the interview. That's all you have to do.
