    I applied online. I interviewed at G4S (Columbus, OH (US)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    In person. Easy safety and work place experiences. Past security experience helps. even with no security experience you can still do well. Is security, so just emphasize safety. Private security roles you will simply carry out, you will never be a cop or arrest anyone.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at G4S (Canton, OH (US)) in March 2012.

    Interview

    First off they post a job posting that doesn't exist. They use this to get candidates to interview and offer them another position (example: upscale unarmed security officer). They call you and set up an interview date. You go in and fill out paperwork then have your interview. Basic interview type questions. Why should we hire you, etc. Now here is the kicker, unless you have corrections officer experience or your peace officer or military background then there is NO chance for advancement! Even with a degree, blah blah blah. And most of the jobs are low paying. All they want is someone who can pass a background check and will stay in the same low paying job and be happy with it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at G4S in May 2014.

    Interview

    Was interviewed and hired back in May 2014.....they did not mention they have a payroll problem and many employees aren't being paid. They also didn't mention as they hire new people they will start to dog the employees they have. Eventually, the new people will be getting dogged too. Like giving out little work here little work there ( reducing hours)

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at G4S (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Relatively easy interview with simple questions about roles and placements. Mainly want you to be able to work all shifts and be available for nights. The better your availability the better your chance for employment. One interviewer and you have to be able to do their orientation which is a couple days in class without pay.
