    Interview

    Little bit disorganised as interview date was changed twice. Not pushed back, brought forward. In end only had a day to prepare. Notmal interview I suppose 1-3. Bit of overkill. They just don’t have it. Lacks depth. They didn’t know the training or the salary/ benefits. Couldn’t answer some of my own questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at TSS (Total Security Services) (London, England) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Crazy interview like Clockwork Orange! Moved from one room to another, additional interviewers came in late, the IT test didn’t work, they left the room to answer phones. It was like an asylum. People ignored me when I said hello and they all looked quite fed up to be there. Not good.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TSS (Total Security Services) (Southend-on-Sea, England) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Felt like they just wanted shirt fillers with sia, kinda disappointing that the position wasn’t taking seriously as people’s safety can be at stake. Should have been harder to get the job and questions were too easy.
