    Security Officer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wichita, KS
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Guardsmark (Wichita, KS).

    Interview

    Walked into an office, sat down, asked a bunch of questions and then give you a bunch of paperwork and a DVD full of stuff you have to review for the paperwork questions. Once it's over they will most likely have you go to a drug test.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have any tattoos? Do you mind shaving before you start? Have you used drugs before? Do you have any convictions.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There wasn't one. They told me the pay and I agreed. Needed a job so whatever they were offering was good to me.
