Analyst Interview

Analyst

I applied online - interviewed at Garda World Security in March 2014.

Interview Details My interview is mixed. I was advised that 5pm would be the latest to work. 5pm was a dream. 6:30-8:30 pm was the norm. The building was dirty, and I should have not taken the job as people's body language suggested otherwise.

Interview Question – The mgr wanted me to not give notice to my employer at that time. This should have been a sign as well.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. The manager advised the rate of pay which was more than I was making at the time.
