    I have been working at Whelan Security part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have some awesome and understanding co-workers, supervisors and bosses. You get to be a part of a big family and for some games you get to watch the game (while doing your job of course.)

    Cons

    During most events you have to engage with some very upset fans because they don't understand the policies and procedures that we are enforcing to make sure that everyone is safe and to make sure the event or game runs smoothly.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Whelan Security (Brookfield, WI) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Called in, asked if I wanted the job! Told pay starting out was $11 hour with increase after 3 months. Asked if I could pass drug test, never given. Asked if I had a DL, I said "No", told not to share that as I would be required to drive.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you pass drug test?   2 Answers
    • If required, could you manipulate payroll to cover up OT issues, even at the expense of your employees?   1 Answer
