    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at U.S. Security Associates (Ontario, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    My interviewer was nice. She was honest as well about the pros and cons of the company. Once you take a urine test right after. Then your scheduled for orientation, which is about 5 hours, faster if you get thru the test. Either way your paid for it. You get a uniform and see a scheduling manager get a post and beginning working. Jobs pay between 10.50 to 13.00 a hour. Just depends, stay away from Amazon if you can't live without your phone, but fyi it pays 12.25

    Security Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at U.S. Security Associates (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    I was offered an interview after I applied on ZipRecruiter and I accepted the interview offer. The pay of 10.00/hr an hour was not enough to maintain stability for my family and I. The interviewer also let me know that the turnover rate was high at the company which for me was a red flag l. No Benefits, No decent pay for a family of four. No Go! Although I would recommend to someone single living with their mom.
