    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Universal Protection Service (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    Painless, online application, but you must follow up or no one will ever call you. Once you speak with management and they do the phone interview you'll be contacted for a face to face interview and drug testing occurs at the interview. Expect about a 1-2 hour interview. If hired you'll usually get your picture taken for the company security Identification and get your uniforms needed.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Universal Protection Service (Orlando, FL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    very good and guaranteed a job the interview process was very easy i don't know if it was because they really need people or what but whatever it is you will get hired its up to u to accept the offer or not. The only thing i didn't like was the position states gated community but doesn't state the job description well it says other wise were sitting in the hot sun making sure no cars go down a road there fixing on 12 hours no breaks. i wouldn't have a problem doing this if we have breaks or a lunch i don't think that's fair.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Universal Protection Service.

    Interview

    The application is ridiculous and asks a lot of unnecessary questions. You will not get hired unless you actually know someone who can help you or recommend you. If you do, you get hired pretty quickly. You have to be pushy for them to find you something that pays decently.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Universal Protection Service (Harrisonburg, VA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Was quick and rushed. Just wanted to hurry up and get the paperwork and interview done to put a warm body to work. Told me they were really interested in me but later found it was just to get sites covered with whoever. I have many years experience in armed, corrections and unarmed. It didn't take long for me to see this wasn't going to be a good company to work for. Poor communication.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Universal Protection Service (Columbus, OH) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, had to do it by city/location. Unless you know exactly which location you want/where you'll be working it might be difficult to navigate through open positions. Online app seems a little dated but pretty straighforwad. Includes a personality type test. I dont think the answers I gave made a difference. I knew the supervisor so the interview was pretty easy/basic, but there is a written sheet with basic job interview questions. Had to submit to mouth swab drug test and background check, fingerprinting done in building. Process was quick because there was an opening that needed filled.
