    Interview

    Interview process went smoothly. Had to fill out an extensive online questionnaire. Came in to meet HR for an assessment. Then met the team - they were a great group. Eventually came in for a second round. Whole process took 2-3 months but that was during the holidays.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (San Jose, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted the next day. Went through a pretty rude but brisk phone screen. Was told to show up to the main office the next day. I showed up early, answered a few questionnaire sheets and sat for about an hour waiting for the recruiter to get there as she was late. When she finally got there it was like there were 1000 things on her mind. Everything was very fast paced and disorganized. Wasn't even asked anything. Based on the online application she put two locations that "suited" my needs. I felt rushed to choose one. Once I did choose, I was set up to interview with the other company that same hour. I drove over there and interviewed and got the job. Came back to main building, did a drug test, filled out paperwork, was given assignments and classes to attend and was sent on my way.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (Houston, TX) in July 2013.

    Interview

    General questions. FOLLOW UP WITH HR 2-4 DAYS AFTER INTERVIEW. The HR staff was very helpful throughout the entire interview process they asked great questions and conducted the interview very quickly. It took a few hours waiting for the HR staff to guide me through the entire process but we move rather quickly it took about two or three days that I have to go back-and-forth to the office until everything is finally done.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (Grand Rapids, MI) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online for the position and was called within a week by the HR manager. We set something up for the following day. I met with HR only and the interview went well. She showed me around the office and introduced me to a couple of the other staff members. A few hours after I left she called me asked me to come in and interview with the branch manager. That interview was pretty short but seemed to go very well. It was that afternoon that the HR manager called me and offered me the job contingent on by drug test and back ground check reports. A bout 2 weeks later I had started here full time.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (Jackson, TN) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Drove 1/12 hours to interview. Met with 2 other Branch Managers. Never asked me any real interview questions. Seems they had their mind mind up before I got there. They were friendly enough, but I didn't drive that far to make new friends.

    Interview

    It helps to be referred by someone, because it's who you know, and hopefully you worked your way up kissing the right butt (of someone who was most likely not qualified for their own job, but they got it by kissing the right butt and depend on those below them to make them look good)

    Never able to get the expected salary. Carrot dangled is annual bonus which is very difficult to obtain.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (Green Bay, WI) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I called Securitas and demanded an interview. They told me to apply online but I told them to just interview me because I don't play games. They were so impressed with my eagerness to work that they interviewed me later that day. I got a call back the next day saying that I was hired.

    • Name a time in your life that you thought you were doing the right thing, but it turned out to be the wrong thing?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They offered me 60k. I laughed in her face and demanded 80k. She said she would have to get back to me. Left the office. Came back with a grin and said that they'll do 85k. Easy as cake. They like people with confidence. You must be firm and have a no BS kind of attitude.
