    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Paladin Security Group (Edmonton, AB (Canada)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was casual in the main office. The questions were directed but seemed like a formality because most of the information would be covered in the training. So it was more screening for level headed people with no bias.

    Temporary Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Paladin Security Group (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The in person interview was standard, they asked questions about previous jobs, behavioural and situational questions. Both of the interviewers were friendly and answered all of my questions. The whole environment was very unprofessional since they left the radio on during the whole interview and it was playing the top hits. On top of that one of the interviewer kept answering her texts and even picked up a phone call in the middle of the meeting; apparently it was from her manager. They stressed that the work environment is fairly casual, but I would expect a more professional experience.
