    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Paladin Security Group (Edmonton, AB) in September-2018.

    Interview

    I briefly met HR representative (anonymous) at Job Fair at their office. With my brief background, she recommended I apply for this job and another. The next day after submitting my resume, assessment and other questions on the application, I got a phone interview the next morning. I was impressed. She was bright, sharp and pointed in her questions to get a good impression of who I was and what I had to contribute and what I wanted in 5-7 minutes.

    Security Guard Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Calgary, AB
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Paladin Security Group (Calgary, AB) in November-2015.

    Interview

    First I applied online and was asked to go to a hiring fair. When I got there I was given a test to fill out which had English-proficiency questions and a section to write out notes as if you were a guard in a written scenario, you had to explain everything that happened with times and what your action was.

    If you passed that then you would go wait for your name to be called for an interview. First you meet with a general manger to determine your eligibility to work for the company and to discuss your resume. After that you wait for a second interview.

    With the second interview you usually meet with a site manager to learn more about what the site is and how things work there. Then forms are signed and depending on how things go, you can be hired on the spot.
