    Security Supervisor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at U.S. Security Associates in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for Security Supervisor on 3/1/2017.

    // 1 - APPLICATION PROCESS //

    Their application process is absolutely disorganized and unprofessional. It's an insane mess. I had to apply several different times to get my application to actually go through. I ended up finally entering "see other application" because my fingers literally got tired of typing. I really wanted the job, but it's clear that people who are passively looking are not going to apply with such a mud-ridden system. It really advertises the work environment you're about to enter.

    // 2 - THE HR RESPONSE //

    The next day I receive a phone call from an unknown number in Seattle, WA. Look, if I apply for a jobs in Portland-OREGON, I'm not going to expect a call from SEATTLE, so I won't answer it on the first go. The caller didn't bother having the common courtesy of leaving a voicemail message, which tells me one of two things: 1, the caller wasn't really interested in speaking to me - or 2, the caller dialed the wrong number.

    After realizing I had missed a call, I Googled the number (253-874-1172). It was U.S. Security Associate's HR number in Seattle. Seeing as I had invested almost two hours on their dysfunctional application process, I felt obligated to call back. I was met with a long ring-tone and a voicemail of an HR manager (feel free to call the number to find out her name).

    // 3 - THE INTERVIEW (if it were to happen) //

    Since I've been officially snubbed by HR (that means HR hung me out to dry, simply for not answering the phone, despite not being employed by them), I've crafted my own interview fantasy (that is probably more realistic than not):

    HR: So tell us about yourself.

    Me: I'm 26; a military instructor; pursuing a degree in security management with a concentration in counterespionage; 5 years of loss prevention and security experience; 7 years of anti-terrorism training and experience; and I'm looking for a career in the security industry.

    HR: That's great. Well we will like to say that we are sorry, the supervisor position was just filled, but we have an excellent opportunity for you. How would you like to be a regular security officer? We offer competitive wages. How does $12.00/hr sound?

    Me: [prepares Dr. Evil voice acting]: HOW BOUT NO!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Security Associates in September 2016.

    Interview

    While conducting the interview he received a phone call and apologized that he must answer because it's pay day. Then another phone call, then another. In 1/2 hour 3 phone calls, apparently the company has far to many payroll issues. The reviews for this company is totally true and I knew this going in and saw for myself that they have problems. It was uncomfortable and for sure I didn't want to work for this company.

    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.

    Dispatcher Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Security Associates (Joliet, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online via another job site; received phone call and email from company; had phone interview; had personal interview. Very comfortable, very relaxed they made me feel at ease throughout the whole process. By the time I had gotten to the 1 on 1 interview they had narrowed it down to me and 3 others, therefore, I began the interview with a positive outlook. However, realistically I had no experience dispatching for the warehouse industry and one of the other probably did.
