    Officer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Antioch, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Securitas (Antioch, CA (US)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    The interview was OK but the hiring process takes forever. From the time I applied with securitas it took about 3 months to get placed into a position. And this is a average time frame. I kept calling and was told it was in process. I finally had to set up my own medical.

    Branch Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boise, ID (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Securitas (Boise, ID (US)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screen then in person interview with the Regional Manager and the Human Resources Manager. The phone screen was with a HR person followed just a few days later by an email to set up the interview. The one thing I was happy about was the fact that they said they would let know one way or the other and they kept their word with an email telling me that they went with another applicant.

    Site Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Securitas (Cincinnati, OH (US)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Site Supervisor - the HR reps ask you questions and then pass the information off to the account manager/branch manager and he makes the decision. In all honesty, once you reach site supervisor and up from there it's more of the buddy system. If you're a buddy you get it.

    Unarmed Security Guard Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Silver Spring, MD (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Securitas (Silver Spring, MD (US)) in January 2014.

    Interview

    You complete an application, watch security video, receive your site location, and are provided with a uniform. Atmosphere is stress free and the the videos/quizzes are common sense and the protocol for security related incidents is clear. HR managers are laid back and more than willing to answer questions.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Allentown, PA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Securitas (Allentown, PA (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Not very detailed and superficial...... They were not very interested in your previous work experience, but rather a reason to not select you. They had no interest in your current duties or your experience in the industry and were not looking to what they could do to make things better; but rather how to just satisfy the status quo.

    Usually a long wait, followed by multiple interviews. Many times, the hiring manager already has an insider for the job, but goes through the process to meet opportunity requirements.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Securitas.

    Interview

    It was your normal go through your work history, qualifications, availability, and salary kind of interview. The only thing I am unhappy about is the whole time they made it seem like I would be a receptionist for Securitas itself not a "Guard" acting as a receptionist at one of their client locations. That I was not happy about so make sure you clarify exactly what your position details in your interview. The only reason I even accepted was because of the money.

    Also be careful because if you do not stand your ground on availability they will swing you this way and that. Keep it firm in the interview.
