    Security Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at TSS (Total Security Services) (London, England) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Applied on the on-line application which didn't work. So I had to call to the office in London and fill in a paper form. No phone call until 9 weeks later (they said they lost my form). Came back for an interview. Started later, finished in 10 minutes. Waste of time, they just asked when I could start, nothing about my experience or previous jobs. I could have been a mannequin.

    Negative Experience
    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at TSS (Total Security Services) (London, England) in March 2018.

    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.
