    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wichita, KS
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Protection 1 (Wichita, KS) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview was short and sweet. After applying i got a text within 24 hours to schedule a phone interview which was awesome because it was on my own time frame. During the interview i was asked a series of questions and was able to answer them without much thought. It was pretty short and sweet as I described earlier. Then once the interview was finished i was scheduled for a 1:1 interview the following week at the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Protection 1 (Las Vegas, NV) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on a Monday, received a call on the following Tuesday for an interview on Wednesday afternoon. I interviewed with the GM and the Operations Manager. The application process was fairly involved asking for 10 years of residence history. The claim was that because Protection 1 does business with government agencies and they need this information to make sure that the applicant can clear government background check. The application took about an hour to complete. The interview itself was about thirty minutes.

    Management Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Protection 1.

    Interview

    Lengthy and Laborious process filled with unnecessary banter mostly about the personal life of the employees and how they would e more productive if they would stop mixing business and pleasure

    Negotiation

    Company actually reneged on initial scope of responsibility. Turned down other offers thinking responsibilities were going to be greater than what was actually offered. Typical of this company's inconsistent management style.

    Commercial Sales Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Protection 1 (Charlotte, NC) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I met with the Sales Manager and we just had a laid back and simple conversation concerning my past experience and what I can bring to the table. Straight forward and honest experience. There was a drug test, background check and just a couple of people I shook hands with and spoke briefly with on my way out. Seriously, very easy. They just want to make sure you are sane, competent and can be trusted with all the rope they allow you.
