    Security Officer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Arlington, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (Arlington, VA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Securitas had a unified hiring process for engineering. Candidates interviewed for Engineering, not for any particular team. Engineers in the interviewing pool were randomly assigned to candidates -- both for phone screens and on-sites. This approach was designed to establish a consistent hiring bar and optimize allocation of resources, but I found that it made interviewing somewhat impersonal and demotivated interviewers.
