    Security Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at G4S (New York, NY (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I've been a licensed security officer for about 10 years. During this time I've had experience in just about every level of security in the field. I started out in the state of California as a concierge meet and greet in a suit in tie, it aquired me an armed patrolman position in where specific sites were assigned and mobily patrolled by vehicle, conducting spot checks, inspection of surface areas, lock doors, broken glass, etc, also conducting daily activity reports. I've also had several years in loss prevention and cctv. My armed experience has gotten me on Ep details, co-security details with schools. Also while in California I obtained and maintained the 40 hr curriculum in order to have a state issued gard card, a exposed weapons permit, baton, hand cuffing, oc spray, dealing with difficult people, court room demeanor, report writing, cpr, and aed.
    I've just recently finished my level 2-4 certs in the state of Texas, I have several hours of continuing education classes from Construction Law and Policing Sciences in America. I also have 20-24 hrs in advanced handgun and shotgun training.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at G4S (Richmond, VA (US)) in May 2019.

    Interview

    The interview was kind of lengthy, a lot of talking about the business and how it was started. The goal of the business and the work that should be performed by you as an security officer.
    You get to explain why you’re interested in the position and why you think you would be a good fit. I think they look to people who already have experience in that field.

    Flex Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at G4S (Durham, NC (US)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Biogen in Durham.
    3 men. 1 didnt ask questions, he was just there to sit and listen. HR guy talked low. Supvisor or manager mainly asked questions, loud enough to hear him. I'm pretty sure they were a little on the prejudice side of hiring a person of color(and natural hair) to work the lobby.

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    They called me to Gurgaon thrice in the span on 25 days, HR informed me that I am shortlisted and asked for my documents. I waited for around 15 days for my joining date , in between I continuously followed HR . She kept on delaying with several excuses and finally blocked me from every where. This is one of the worst company , and have wasted my 40 days .
