    Depends on the facility, but generally the security manager at the place calls you in for an in person interview, asks a few questions and then gives you the job on the spot. I took a job from G4S at two facilities and was outsourced to other places on occasion for temporary work.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at G4S (Dayton, OH (US)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Basic run-of-the-mill interview process and very predictable. They sure did preach a lot in the interview questioning. Is they were preaching about dress attire I am staring at one of the officers in charge out of uniform half-dressed.

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at G4S (Danville, IL (US)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Short and to the point. Very relaxed, did not feel pressured. Had to wait about 20 minutes to interview as the supervisor was dealing with a situation at the moment. Kind of got to see the job in action.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at G4S (Orlando, FL (US)) in September 2010.

    The interview was very informal and easy. There is a 400 question physiological test that takes a very long time. Afterward you have a one week security coures. Finally you have a one week course on the x-ray machine, if you are working at the jail or courthouse.

    There are no negotiations. Every security position has a set pay.

    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.
