    Easy Interview

    This was easy, a few questions about experience and how you could handle the job load. Additional questions covering the reliability and flexibility. Nothing very hard, just keep in mind the flexibility and multi-tasking are huge with this job.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at G4S in July 2015.

    Interview

    Received a phone pre-interview screening call at work; about 15 minutes long. It went well, and I was asked to come in that afternoon for a full interview. I told the lady I was unable to get off work, and asked for another day so I could plan ahead. She became very snippy, talked about how valuable their time is, and said "we're only interviewing today"; then hung up on me.

    If that's the kind of company and unprofessional employee I would be working for/with; I think I just dodged a 'bad job' bullet.

    Management Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at G4S (Whispering Pines, NC (US)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    A little lengthy but overall thorough and a good experience. I was called back for 3 different interviews with multiple people over a 3 month period. In all fairness, that 3 month period fell during the holidays so I don't hold it against the company by any means. It is a tough time of the year to find jobs.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at G4S (Omaha, NE (US)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly simple, the head of Project Managers came to meet me, he introduced himself and then took me to the first Project Manager below him. That manager then interviewed me for about 30 minutes before taking me to another manager, who also interviewed me for 30 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions weren't difficult, just the basics: Why should we hire you? Name a situation where you were restricted to find a solution in a certain way? What do you know about G4S? etc.

      There were some technical questions such as: What do you know about RS-485 communication? What do you know about telecommunication networks? What do you know about fiber optic networks?   Answer Question
