    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (Phoenix, AZ) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied like 3 times and I got emails about we are interested in you to be a security officer until I called to ask them if there is anything wrong. I spoke with the lady in charge and She said will review and call me if I am qualified. She called but I notice that she was maybe intoxicated/drowsy because she will take breaks after few minutes and say that she was sleepy or ask the questions repeatedly after I answer them like: I told her that I have IT degree and I built websites too before and she replied that if I do have any computer experience?!!!! She asked me repeatedly how many employees I managed and I answered it over 5 times then she told me if I know anything about the responsibilities for this position which I had the job description in front of me and gave her every single one of it and she answered me: You don't the important of this job and what you said to me is nothing. What???!!!! at the end she said I think I am not a good fit for this position. funny!
