    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Securitas.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional. Supervisors and upper management degrades the help. No help from Human Resources when you file a complaint. Would not recommend this company to anyone.

    Field Investigator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Securitas (Washington, DC) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Very detailed phone interview plus a writing sample is necessary. A few questions including information about yourself and understanding of the position you applied for. Also giving more information about the given position. Other questions are easily answered and should be approached with an open mind, however having a simple answer is not what is best and should not be rendered as a response for any job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Securitas in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied on May 10th. Had a 30 min phone interview + a 30 min writing sample on May 17th. The writing sample asked, how do you manage your work responsibilities in your current role? The guy I interviewed with told me that he would sit down with his manager and look at a pool of applicants who went through the same process as me ( 30 min phone interview and writing sample). Most likely gave the job to the person with the highest qualifications.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Securitas.

    Interview

    The interview process depends on who you are getting interviewed by. I didn't get many questions but basic stuff and was having more of a conversation than anything. once I told the interviewer I knew about safety first and how to deal with people from my previous jobs and that I was open to work in the next city, she told me I was hired and I started signing my employment papers and took a drug test. After passing the drug test I was giving the days to come back for training.
