Approves of CEO


compared to other companies, this ones the best IMO. They provide training, a vehicle, and equipment. The managers and other staff are great also


the work can feel a bit socially isolating. Lots of time spent alone. It helps to have a good social life outside of work

  1. Entry Level Surveillance Investigator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hampshire, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PhotoFax (Hampshire, IL) in Jan 2022


    The interview was more of an explanation of what the job involved and whether or not I would be willing to endure its responsibilities. After what I thought was a successful interview, I was asked about my availability and was told that I would be contacted about a ride along later that day or the day after. No response. I attempted to follow up with John Todaro, the recruiter, but with no success.

    What would be the most difficult task that you imagine encountering on this job?
