Security Officer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

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. 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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Securitas Security Services USA (Knoxville, TN) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied one Sunday in July 2016, I received a call that Monday. She set up me up for an interview Tuesday. It wasn't really an interview, I just completed a few pieces of paperwork and she asked a couple questions along with the mouth swab drug test and completing the information for a background check, I left. I waited about 2 to 3 days for the background check then she called me and set me up for orientation the following Monday. Orientation was just more paperwork and watching videos. She got me the uniform and told me I could start that night for training. So far, I love it!
