    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Walden Security (Chattanooga, TN) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed on Friday and was told to come back in on Monday and Tuesday of the following week for training. At training, I was given a ten panel drug screen (urine), and we spent several hours going over the employee manual and state codes in class. On the second day, we took a test. Its extremely cold in the office, so bring a jacket. You get an hour for lunch. Training is unpaid.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walden Security.

    Interview

    It was fairly easy to secure a job, I filled out an application online. They call you to the office, you fill out the paper work, and then after that you take a class. Take your class immediately after your interview, even if it starts the next day, to give them their props, they will remember your work ethic and will secure you a job faster that way. Otherwise, you could be waiting for a post for a while, even after you complete the task.

    Interview Questions

    • They ask you mainly about your previous experience, describe your ideology on customer service, ect.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Walden Security.

    Interview

    The interview was really pathetic now that I look back. In a nutshell, if it sounds to good to be true it usually isn't. The interviewer doubtfully, had a h/s diploma, bad grammar. She asked if she could "Axe me a question". Little did I know, this was the beginning of humiliation. I am so ashamed of being affiliated with this company.

    Negotiation

    Yes, I was very pleased with the negotiation, however, everything we negotiated was bogus. They will say anything to get you on-board. Then after you've invested in background checks, fingerprint uniforms and license you're stuck
