G4S Security Officer Interview

Anonymous Employee in San Antonio, TX (US)
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at G4S (San Antonio, TX (US)) in August 2010.

Interview

g4s in South Texas has one person who dose the interviewing and hiring. He works in Austin and drives down to San Antonio. He knows nothing about the military, although g4s says they have a close partnership with the military. G4s dose not care really who they hire. The people they hire can hardly write their own names. there was an incident recently were a G4s employee push a emergency all off button thinking it was for the automatic door and turned off all the power for a whole floor of servers. It cost the client $$ Millions $$ and a couple of days to get the servers back online. I mean come on it's a big RED button that says Emergency ALL Off (do NOT push)

Negotiation

laughable a whole two minutes of checking boxes. I can't believe they pay someone just to do the hiring.

    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I interviewed at G4S (Houston, TX (US)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Just asked very simple easy questions. Was a list she had just reading off questions. Everyone gets offered a job. They have like 5 recruiters fighting to have the most new hires. So pretty much just go in expecting a job.

    The overall experience was new to me with different roles and positions available. The process dealt with one hiring manager, train classes that took up to a week. this allowed me to have an advantage to be hire for the position. The experience helped me prepared for the next step as I interviewed with hire agencies such as police and corrections agencies. It allowed me to build self preparation for the future.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at G4S (Austin, TX (US)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Found the job posting on indeed.com, and the application was very straightforward. Standard information and questions, didn't take long to fill out. Was emailed within 2 weeks with a time to come in for an interview. Interview itself was very laid back. Just the HR manager and his assistant. Explain the company/job, asked if I had any questions. Told they would be in touch as soon as the background check and drug test results came back.

    G4S Security Officer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at G4S.

    Interview

    The interview process was a bit of a pain. They made a big deal about gaps in employment for their background investigation and couldn't seem to get it though their heads that I had been on terminal leave from the military for close to 3 months before my retirement. It wasn't so much an interview as much as one big investigation. They put an awful lot of emphasis on military service for a job that only pays $12.50/hr.
     The HR staff is very unorganized and I had to re-submit paperwork with sensitive information on it after it had been lost by them.
