    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Securitas (Henderson, NV) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Easy. It's more a matter of them feeling out your expectations, versus whether they can meet them. I very much get the impression that so long as you can breathe, walk, speak, pass a drug urine test, and obtain a guard card, that they will at least make you a conditional job offer.

    Watch a video and pass a drug test. Really not much to it, sign away rights for break or do not get the job. Really simple, show up is 90% chance of getting hired.
