Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (Virginia Beach, VA) in December 2017.

Interview

The interview process was super easy. Overall it was very easy and quick. They want to know why you would be a good candidate for the job. They ask about previous job experience, because they check your references to see if you're eligible for rehire. As long as you're consistent, you'll be fine. If theyre going to hire you, they do the whole process that day you do your interview.

    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.

    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 ,
