    I worked at Guardsmark full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good culture, decent pay, decent benefits. The company treats you like a human being. They will often back you up in times of trouble.

    Cons

    A little behind on the technology end of things. I would like to see the company allow direct deposit. When I worked there it wasn't allowed at all locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep supporting your Supervisors, you're doing well.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Guardsmark.

    Interview Details

    First round interview was followed by a 40 page application (people complain about this but I'm not sure why, if you aren't willing to fill out an application then you probably don't want the job that badly), then three followup interviews on-site. There was a personality test that I found to be very interesting! The questions make you think and I had not previously been interviewed in this manner. The amount of interviewing that is conducted is impressive as they seem to screen very thoroughly for a match.
