    Field Investigator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at G4S in March 2019.

    Interview

    Believe the negative reviews about this company. I applied online and was immediately contacted the following day to set up an interview. I replied back with what day/time worked best and got everything scheduled. It was going to be an online interview over webcam but less than an hour before our interview I received an email stating that an investigator moved back to the state so they gave the position to them and that my interview was no longer needed and they would contact me in a few months if positions opened. Seriously? I will now never work for this company due to this response. Completely unacceptable with little warning ahead of time.

    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at G4S (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Do not join. They will hire you than harrass you, and even change exit policies so you get stuck for harrasment.
    HR is rude at best possible level.
    While at SSC, hiring managers dont know communication basics as they came from local branches from small towns. They don’t know assesment.

    Do not join, there is no work life balance, lala shop environment.

    Security Officer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boca Raton, FL (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at G4S (Boca Raton, FL (US)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Easy. If you Have a D-license you will definitely get hired. The sites are ok, but some of the supervisors don't know how to work with other people and a lot of them don't care. Great for people in the law enforcement field but other than that what you learn there as security is worthless.
