Security job in NH
« on: Aug 14, 2010, 07:24 »
Hi.  I just attended a jobs open house for Seabrook NH security guard positions.  I made it past the initial reading and math exams and was called back for a second interview.  Sadly, I was not called back after that.  

I thought the second interview went well.  I am currently in law enforcement, prior military, college graduate, courses in small arms and anti-terrorism, and a strong work background.  

I hope to apply again should there be another hiring.  The question is, what can I do to improve my chances the next time around?  Thank you.

Some of the questions I remember were:

What would you do if a member of your team showed up drunk to work?

Do you have any problems with working holidays?

What do you think will be your duties as a security officer?

If you saw two employees fighting, how would you handle the situation?

Would I have an issue using deadly force?

What is your best/worst quality?
Do you have reliable transportation?

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

If you were the interviewer, what would you expect to see in a potential candidate? 

I honestly thought the interview went well.  I don't have alot of experience with interviews as my last job was 7 years on.  One of the guys was prior military and we shared the same lingo.  But I did not "prepare" for my interview.  I assumed they would see my educational achievements and use that as the determining factor.  I tried to treat the interview as more of a casual conversation with me answering the questions honestly and "from the heart".

It hurts that I blew it.  I hope I can have a better chance should there be a next time.  Assuming they will select me for the next time.

Q #1, 4, 5, 6  are along the same lines I've seen used in many interviews (minus the how-much-holdover-for-windage part). Often the interviewers want a non-softball weakness, to hear a substantial answer for how you overcome it. #1 and #4 might be viewed as a choice of being Robocop or a nice guy trying to help a buddy out. There's always more than one wrong answer from which to choose!

Great advice from everyone! 

Question.  Is anyone in this forum a current employee at Seabrook, preferably in security?  I just wanted to hear their experiences with the job and their success strategies in passing the interview.
