Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Primary Response (Scarborough, ON) in Aug 2016

Interview

I applied online through Indeed.com and received a call the next day. I set up an interview and went to it. They ask you to bring your direct deposit form, security license, first aid and drivers license (if you have one). They then give you paperwork to fill out. This takes about 10-20 minutes. It asks you for your entire work history for the last five years. After you fill out the form you wait until they bring you into a classroom, where you will watch a presentation about the company and the types of sites and training they offer. After this is done you get your uniform. I think I stayed at the head office for maybe three to four hours. Show up and you will be hired. That is it.

Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Primary Response (Scarborough, ON) in Mar 2015

Interview

Corporate, professional and strictly business all the way. It was an exchange of data re: what are my strengths, experiences in the field, education level and what the company offers for a site, the site pay, the training pay, schedule, etc. No surprises. The interviewer was impressed with my history in the field and the various environments I've worked security in. I was impressed with the interviewer's transparency when he told me about the site and what was involved. Notes to future applicants: bring a black pen and a notebook/loose paper for figuring out the preliminary math questions on the application! I'm relieved I did. And don't even try to use the calculator feature on your cell phone. There's signs up all over the waiting room/testing area forbidding cell phone use. I suspect CCTV in the area too.

I applied online. I interviewed at Primary Response (Toronto, ON) in Jan 2012

Interview

The interview is pretty basic. The easiest thing I have ever done actually. As long as you speak English you are probably good to go. Obviously it also depends of if they have enough guards to meet the demand. If so, they will probably increase their standards a bit, if not, they'll decrease it. Either way I can't imagine anyone born here for example would have a hard time.
