    It was an informal process. You could tell they were herding thru canidates to fill a lot of holes in the business. The company has made some bad business decisions and they are trying to pick themselves up so they can go publc one day soon.

    Application Details

    I interviewed 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 Questions
    • 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.
