    I was taken in late, the interview was short, they really will hire anyone who have not been arrested in the past but even that is not a deal breaker.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at U.S. Security Associates (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Very quick, fast and on the spot hire. Friendly staff and they really want to fill up the open spots they have for this company. They prefer more entry level people for certain pays. Starting pay as entry is 9 to 9.75 an hour. Over all it is a very quick process they know who they want and you must come in there professionally dressed. It's only lengthy when they have to find you placement for where you're going to work sometimes it can take an hour but once they find it, they offer you a pay to accept and if you want they will give it to u if not then you can go or either try to fight it for a higher pay.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at U.S. Security Associates (Houston, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly easy the only thing asked from me was if I can stay awake long periods of time and stay alert. The only difficult part of the interview was that everyone in the building seemed so relaxed I did not know how seriously to take what was being asked of me.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you do if someone is causing disturbance to the building you are patrolling?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no real negotiation everyone starts at 11 an hour the company however does try to work with you on your schedule if they cannot find anything that matches what you need it can mean you cannot get the job.
