    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at U.S. Security Associates (Houston, TX) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call the next day for an interview. They have 2 offices I went to the recruiter who call me and the post I applied for wasn't even the post for that office. The next day I went to the other office the guy did not look like a recruiter instead he look like a security officer who just got off of work. He offers the job to me then stepped out came back in and say we full for orientation and I have to call and see if we still have that post anyways we will give you a call. Most unprofessional interview I've ever been on in my life.

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at U.S. Security Associates.

    Interview

    Basically just asking your availability and do you have a driver's license transportation of your own and can you pass a drug test, can you pass a background check. After that you pay $30 for your own finger printing then you go to a training class the next day take 12 tests, yes its easy, yes you can help each other, after you make at least 70% on the test you'll probably work that sane week.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at U.S. Security Associates (Ontario, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Easy interview - fast, simple and basic. When I arrived I had to fill out a form to describe when I received or gave excellent customer service. Afterwards the interview begins, pretty basic. Then I did my background check and drug test. Since I didn't have my guard card or the proper certifications I had to take the classes. So the interviewer provided information in regards to the class and then I got hired on the spot.

    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
