    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GardaWorld (Indianapolis, IN) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Put an app in online was contacted the next day by email to set up a face to face interview. Was pretty basic I met with the branch manager and we got along really well I was there almost 2 hours talking about the job. Afterwards if your hired they set up a firearms training session and a few other tests
