Security Officer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (Indianapolis, IN) in August 2017.

Interview

I applied for the job( the application has some tricky questions. A day later I got a call. A day after that I had my interview. It is important to show up 15 minutes early, in order to fill out some paper work. You will have to fill out an incident report that has a scenario written at the top. It was very simple. The interview itself was great! Very easy going and straightforward questions. If this field is your passion I feel like it is easy to get in the door. Honesty is key. They decided to hire me on the spot, so I took a mouth swab right then and there(so be prepared, as you always should be anyway). After filling out more paperwork, I received information and a date for my orientation. I will have to wait 5 days minimum for the orientation day, due to the fact that they need to process my background check. This was one of the best and smoothest interviews I have ever had.
Just a note: If you have any certifications you should bring copies along with you. As well as a copy of transcripts or GED/Diploma. This will help the process along a bit quicker, or if you are like me you can bring them in at a later date.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (Saint Louis, MO) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview is not necessarily an interview...Basically you go into the building to fill out your paper work, then in a week or so you come back and participate in a class where you are quizzed and have to take a test covering security information, that, technically is your interview..because if you fail <70% you are denied employment until you re-take the test and pass

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (Henderson, NV) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Filled out an application online, received a call the next day. The interview is very easy. If you're nervous, don't be. It's not about the interview, it's about you passing a background check, testing negative on a drug test and the ability to get a guard card. While I waited to interview, they had me fill out an incident report.
