    Security Officer Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Intensive interview and selection process. Multiple interviews and in-depth assessment for fit for hire. Definitely worth while, as it helps identify the best candidates for each position - very unlike the traditional conveyer belt hiring that most companies are using for entry level hiring.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Paladin Security Group in June 2017.

    Interview

    I had applied maybe a week before I got a call, I did a simple phone interview (Availability and previous experience) and then was asked to come for a face to face interview the same day. I went to the office and completed a simple English proficiency worksheet and a mock incident report and then proceeded with the face to face with the branch manager. It was fairly simple again asking about my previous experience (None in security I might add) when I would be available to start or if there would be any issues obtaining a clean criminal record. The branch manager said he thought I was perfect for the position and offered me the position.
