    Security Supervisor/Security Officer/Data Entry Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Securitas (Detroit, MI).

    Interview

    What a cluster! I applied for a Security Supervisor position and was called to interview for a Security Officer position. When I got there they were looking for somebody to do Data Entry. It didn't seem the right hand new what the left hand was doing.

    Interviewed by an Ex Marine who after asking what I was looking for in a salary as a Supervisor and I replied with 40k told me that's what he made and he had supervisors earning $9.00 an hour. Hell, I can go be a Walmart greeter and make that with far less headaches.

    Got a call from them later offering $9.00 hr as a Security Officer for Detroit Public Schools. Took everything I could do not to laugh out loud. I have 7 years US Army Military Police and 25 years Michigan Department of Corrections experience. This place cares nothing about it's employees by the sound of it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Securitas (Burbank, CA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring process was pretty much standard for hiring security for high profile locations requiring more than the standard security needs. There was an emphasis on the need for discretion in dealing with celebrities and entertainment VIPs.

    Security Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Securitas (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in December 2010.

    Interview

    The interview was short. Consisted of a meeting with the HR Generalist who asked standard questions such as "Tell me a time you have handled a difficult person/client/co-worker", "Are you comfortable working alone overnight" and "Why do you want to join Securitas?". They will also ask if you are presently licensed as a security guard and ask to make a photocopy. If you get the job you will be asked to sign for a background check and an appointment will be made for "basic" training. It is 1 day if you are licensed and 5 days if you are not.

    In my situation they tried to offer me a lower paying officer position until I pushed that I had applied and had experience as a supervisor. I had a short meeting with a branch manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me a time you have handled a difficult person/client/co-worker"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, rates are mostly non-negotiable and depend on client site and position. If they aren't offering you the position you want it's better to walk away or you will be stuck working for less.
