Entretien de Traditional Security Officer

Expérience négative
Entretien facile

Candidature

J'ai postulé en personne. Le processus a pris +8 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à G4S (La Crosse, WI (États-Unis)) en avril 2012.

Entretien

I interviewed with them twice because of a mistake on their part.
First time the ad for the job just said to drop of our resume at the location. When I got there, I was ask to stay since the Branch Manager was in town and wanted to conduct on the spot interviews. So then I was escorted into a room with at least 20 other people.
Then I was given a questionnaire to fill out. After I was done, about 30 minutes later I was escorted to the Branch Manager and given an interview.
I can tell you that they go off of a standard list, asking basic questions like “Why do you want this job?” or “What experiences do you have that qualifies you for this job?”
After that, I was brought back into the room, and waited as the others were interviewed. After another 40 minutes, they finished the interviews and then accounted the people that they wanted to offer jobs to.
I was given a form to fill out and was told to wait 2-3 weeks to hear back about setting up a time to go to a city across the state for training.
About 3 weeks later, I called them to inquire about when I was supposed to go to training. I was told that they “lost” my contact information and therefore hired someone else.
I went in about 8 months later, and that time around I was the only one there. I was interviewed, then offered a job. The next week I was reporting for training

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris +1 semaine. J'ai passé un entretien à G4S.

    Entretien

    Was called shortly after submitting the application online to set up an interview. Atmosphere at the home office was laid back and generally unprofessional.

    The interview itself was basic, the interviewer asking vague pre-scripted questions such as "What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses?" etc. Interviewer consistently apologized for having to ask the what she called the 'stupid' questions that she 'was required to ask' during the interview, which I found to be a little strange.

    Called to follow up more than a week after the interview, HR apologized for not having communicated and requested my return to the office to sign more paperwork. Job offer letter was provided upon getting there.

    The most absurd aspect of the hiring process was that they had no uniforms on-hand that fit me and had to order them. This in itself is no entirely unexpected but I went nearly 1 month of working on-site before finally receiving my uniform. In that 1 month span of time I had to provide my own clothes closest to representing their current uniform, which for me was my own nice black suit (way better quality than the uniforms provided) which I had to risk damaging every day I was working because no substitute was offered by the company (All I got from the home office was an insincere apology from HR).

    This aforementioned experience helped to set the precedent of how I would feel about the company and the job in the latter months to come.

    Expérience négative
    Entretien facile

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en personne. Le processus a pris une semaine. J'ai passé un entretien à G4S (Bucyrus, OH (États-Unis)) en août 2013.

    Entretien

    The process of applying was very simple and easy to do, navigate, and complete. All done through their website. No issues there.

    They called me with in a couple of days and conducted a brief phone interview. Then gave me an interview date.

    This is about all that I can say positive about this.

    The interview location was at a Holiday Inn. I arrived approximately fifteen minutes early and went into the lobby. I noticed that the hotel had conference rooms. So I assumed that G4S would be using those to conduct an interview. The front desk clerk knew nothing about any interviews and G4S was not registered to the conference rooms. I waited approximately 20 minutes. At no point did anyone come into the lobby other than a woman in her PJs to eat breakfast. After 25 minutes of waiting I ended up leaving.

    Interview was for 9AM. Arrived at 8:45AM. Waited until 9:25AM and I received a phonecall at approximately 9:40AM demanding to know why I am late to the interview. Alright. I can get if your interviewer is late and I can be cool with that. But to accuse ME of being late instantly rang a bad vibe with me. I already knew this company would be a waste of time. The individual argued with me over the phone when I explained I had waited over 25 minutes for the interviewer. They lied and said he had been waiting. When I asked if he was a woman wearing PJs and that no one else was in the lobby they were dumbfounded. They threatened to put me on their "blacklist" of non-hireables.

    Waste of time.

    J'ai postulé en personne. Le processus a pris 4 jours. J'ai passé un entretien à G4S (New York, NY (États-Unis)) en mars 2014.

    Entretien

    It was a 3rd party interview with the managing agent. Easy interview wasn't a pleasant or professional experience. I waited over 45 minutes to be seen. I described what experience I had and what I could offer as a future employee. I was offered a schedule which I felt like they were pushing to cover the midnight shift only
     I declined and they miraculously found me a position that I could work with. I felt like they were scamming me into employment.

    Interview was easy. Manager asked me why I wants to work for the company, salary desired and desired work location. Seems like they just want bodies instead of quality applicants.
