    I worked at Guardsmark full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Gave an opportunity to work at my duty post with little or no supervision and I always produce the needed results

    Cons

    Working with people of different background sometimes may be challenging but since everyone is there to better the needs of Guardsmark, I always listen to criticism, complains, advice

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is an of getting things done through others. To achieve this, management should always Make themselves feasible to the lower level so that idea of way forward can be shared

    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at Guardsmark in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Went in to fill out an application, the first application wasn't that long. The usual questions were asked considering this is a security position. The first interview was short and the woman I spoke to was very polite and was straight to the point. The second application is a booklet that takes a very long time to fill out, be prepared to provide all of your siblings information I.E. address and phone numbers. Also be prepared with 4 neighborhood references that aren't in the same house or related in any way to you and 4 professional references as well.
