    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Guardsmark (Memphis, TN) in March 2011.

    Interview

    it was a sit down meeting room discussion between me and the security manager and the account manager. about all aspects of security at this location. but the job went to a very pretty woman that did not know much about securtiy.
