    Unarmed Security Officer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (Memphis, TN) in December 2017.

    Interview

    After I filled out my application, I didn't give them anytime to call me. I was calling them everyday checking on my status, and letting them know I was serious about working. Usually doing this, you have to worry about talking to the same person and they get an attitude with you because they are tired of hearing from you. I didn't have this problem with the recruiter Andrea. She was pretty laid back the first few times, then I suppose when she noticed how serious I was she put even more effort in finding me a post.

    Interview Questions

    • Besides asking basic questions, they have you fill out a questionnaire. I liked the scenario.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA.

    Interview

    I filled out an application online and they responded back in 3 days with a call to set up an interview. I initially missed the call but they left a voicemail saying they would send me an email with all the details attached. When I finally got the email it only said to come in for open interviews between a certain time. When I show up for the interview they tell me the HR manager isn't in today briefly ask for my information and if I had my certification. After handing over my information they make a copy and tell me to come in next week for orientation.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA.

    Interview

    Knew site supervisor so she told me about position. And went to securitasjobs.com to apply and take assessment to determine eligibility. After passing that, the branch manager received a notification and they called to set up interview time for the next day with site supervisor. Interview was informal, asked me mostly questions from the assessment, possible scenarios etc. Buccal swab was done for the drug testing method at that time, background check took about 3 or so days to get back, fingerprinting was required, started working in less than a week of applying ,

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (Evansville, IN) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online on a Thursday. Received a call back following morning and called them back that afternoon. Setup an interview on following Monday. Interview was probably the easiest I've been through. Since all my information was sent online I just had to double check everything but didn't have to refill the other paperwork for it. Had a incident report to fill out. It gives an example of the incident that took place to know how to write your report. Drug tested after interview and sized up for uniform.

    Next step is have to wait for pre-employment background check to go through (was told two weeks) then I'll be given an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic questions. Was asked to give an example of a difficult situation and how I handle it.   Answer Question
