    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at G4S (Edinburgh, Scotland).

    Interview

    Had 1 interview in a hotel in Edinburgh, asked very basic questions. Received an email next day saying I was successful. G4S is great for students as you can pick and choose which shifts you'd like, they also paid for me to obtain my SIA License.
