    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (Columbus, GA).

    Interview

    You can apply in person or on-line and have a division manager contact you. You are then given a website where you fill out forms.. These forms are quite extensive. You also take a drug test and you need a police report that you have no outstanding warrants or other problems that would prevent you from working security.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Really easy. You're pretty much hired on the spot. sent In my app and a day later the receptionist called me to schedule an interview. She asked some pre-questions like my work history, how far I wanted to travel, pay rate, and so on. Got to the interview and they have you fill out another pre-interview question thing. On it is a made up scenario and you're supposed to describe how you would react, and then the second page is about what shifts you can do, pay rate, distance you wanna travel, etc. completed that and then met with the recruiter. Super easy, just went over the stuff on my application. She offered me a great job at $16, I accepted and we went back to do paperwork and a swab drug test.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (Ontario, CA).

    Interview

    Took overall 3 days, hiring process was easy, got hired on the spot. If you fill out paperwork the same day, be aware for your swab drug test. If you don't pass they send you to a lab to re-do. Just go in confident like you own the job, VERY EASY.
