Highland Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85016 This position may include special job duties based on the client’s needs and requirements, they are: Canine Handler, Customer Service Representative, Control Center/Console Operator, Dispatcher, Patrol Officer, Valet Officer, School Crossing Guard, Fire Officer (certified fire fighter).

  5. 5. • Prepares logs, reports and other duties as required under the "specialty" job function. • Performs other job duties as required. ================================================================ Securitas USA - Online Application http://www.securitas.com/us/en/Career/Come-Join-Us/Start-On-line-Application/ If you previously applied to Securitas USA you must wait 60 days to reapply. To apply for a position with Securitas USA you will be asked to provide the following information: • Your Social Security Number • Address history for the past seven years • Details about your education • Employment history for the past seven years, including addresses and telephone numbers If you do not have this information with you at this time, please exit now and return when you do. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- TIPSTER #1: They do train but, they do give first preference to those who already have an AZ DPS SECURITY GUARD CARD and those with previous Law Enforcement or Military work histories are highly sought. “Does this mean that I have to have this to get a job?” No, but, it is the reality that if you already have a current guard card you can go through their internal training and be out on a security post a lot soon. Also, previous law enforcement or military experience takes everything to higher level of pre-training, qualifications and abilities to fill in at high profile security location(s). IF YOU DO NOT ALREADY HAVE A GUARD CARD DO NOT GO OUT AND GET ONE ON YOUR OWN. It really doesn’t work that way, it is expensive and you will still need to have the 8 hours of training ($40-100 cost…$40 is for bare bones training
  6. 6. only and everything else is extra and done by you or the $100 is a full turnkey they do everything for you) by whoever hires you. SECURITAS TRAINS FOR FREE AND YOU ONLY PAY $72 FOR PROCESSING YOUR GUARD CARD THROUGH AZDPS. Before you start the process determine if you will qualify through AZDPS to receive a guard card. REMEMBER ALL FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE! Go to http://licensing.azdps.gov/Licensedisqualifiers.asp TIPSTER #2: Let’s face it; Securitas is the largest private security agency in the world and because of that, their standards are higher than Uncle Bob’s Used Security Shack. They are security for some of the biggest companies here in the Phoenix Metro Area and they need people who bring their “A” Game daily. So, truly, they only take the best potential. BUT, SOMETIMES, THE BEST IS NOT THE MOST EXPERIENCED BUT THE MOST MOTIVATED! If you are a security guard want-to-be with little no actual security experience, walking through the door to this open house and present yourself with less than a driven “I want this job and here is why I would be a GREAT Candidate…” which means being on your best “A” Game, if you are not spruced up and looking sharp and/or are not interested in the company (you didn’t know anything about them or their history) and/or you have the attitude that “I don’t really want the job but, I might take this until something better comes along;” PLEASE STAY HOME because you are not who they are looking for and you would just get your feeling hurt over wasting your time. TIPSTER # 3: If you are a regular reader of the Used Job Shack then you are (by know) familiar with the new generation JOB SEEKING RULE #4. Then you already know what you need to get the full job descriptions…read it completely, several times…tear it apart…pull out all of the required skills/abilities and then, go through each of your jobs and match up what they need and what you have done… that’s only if you really want this job…Now fill out the application. For the sake of those who are NOT…here is a quick review.
  7. 7. RULE # FOUR (EXPERIENCE VS. SKILLS): WITH MANY LARGE COMPANIES…it is important that you know that for the first two levels of review, a real person does not see your application because the company’s computer system scans your application. The computer is a very bright 6 year old…very smart but, not a lick of logic. Getting selected for an interview is very difficult when the company screens your application with the computer and you do not have the cheat sheet (full job description). OK…YEA! We are talking (in general) about positions that require little or no experience…“So why make this so difficult?” “Why should I be worried?” The reason you should be concerned is that you are about to make a mistake that will cost you the chance to get hired eight out of ten times in this new job market. You have just made a bad technical error by assuming that you know better and that since experience is only preferred then “what difference does it make if you read the job description or if you cut-n-paste the job description from your killer resume?” You are getting ready to make the tragic mistake of confusing experience with skills and abilities. You are correct that the positions may not require experience but they do (many times) require a lot of skills. And if you really want to get hired, you must demonstrate to the employer that you do have the skills! (See the job below): “Previous experience preferred but not required…”
  8. 8. "Integrity, Vigilance, and Helpfulness", represented by the three dots on our logo, are qualities our employees are proud to demonstrate daily. SKILLS ARE HIGHLIGHTED…SEE IF YOU SEE A PATTERN? Job Overview: SECURITY – SECURITAS Security Officer - Regular Location: Phoenix, AZ (2122 E.

(1) GAME MAKER/BREAKER: Must be able to meet and continue to meet any applicable state, county and municipal licensing requirements for Security Officers. (Get AZDPS SECURITY GUARD CARD) -------------------------------------------------- ANALYSIS: This job requires a lot of skill or ability to observe, report, ability to create documentation and to follow instructions. On the surface you may not see the relationship between what you did and what this job requires. Here is where you confuse experience with skill. You are bringing this to the conversation not the employer. Please show me where the job requires ___ years of experience observing, reporting or preserving order. It does not. So, (by you confusing this issue) you would be presenting yourself as unskilled and lacking in any or all of the 18+ skills and abilities that the employer needed because you confused experience with skills.
  11. 11. Re-read the job description and tell me if this employer is asking for experience or is looking for 18+ skills. If you are focused upon experience or that you believe that no experience is required “so I qualify automatically!” Or worse, “”that’s too much work and effort for this job…” Unless you explain to the employer that you do have the skills, how would they know? How would the computer know that as (say) a CASHIER, that you used the majority of those 18 skills on a daily basis? Did you or do you know that? Whatever you put on your application or in your resume become the only truth and information the employer will judge you by. STILL CONFUSED…I SEE? Let’s break this down further so you really understand this as this is the most critical part of the application process and where 8 out of 10 people lose their chance to get interviewed, talk to a live person and get hired. Let’s examine the various duties and see how they were a part of your everyday work life. Let’s start with (say) a CASHIER who has never been a security card but, he has 3-5 years of experience working in a retail store. HERE IS THE CUT-N-PASTED JOB DESCRIPTION FROM HIS RESUME: 2009 – Present CASHIER, BIG BOX WALLYCO – Phoenix, AZ “Worked as a retail cashier operating a POS Electronic Cash Register, handled money and processed payments. Answered customer questions, did price checks and kept the register clean. Counted and balance cash door at end of shift. Sometimes opened or closed store and helped with related paperwork.” OK! This is actually better than many of you have as a job description. But, does it show the employer that he has the NEEDED skills to be a security guard? How many of the 18+ skills did he list in her job details? If you were a computer screening for 18+ skills did you find any? So, would he qualify? Thought so!
  12. 12. Only if the employer was his cousin and already knew that about his actual cashiering experience and could see how all of the 18+ skills were incorporated into his job because cashiering is a passive form of security. HERE IS THE SAME RESUME USING THE “USED JOB SHACK METHOD”: Same person, same experience and skills but actual written from the understanding that the employer did not/does not understand the actual duties of a cashier. 2009 – Present CASHIER, BIG BOX WALLYCO – Phoenix, AZ “Working at the store’s front register, I was required to observe and report suspicious activities and incidents to my manager and if there was an incident, I was required to write a complete report, submit documentation or fill out required corporate, police or for insurance forms in the case of loss or damage. Provided for the security and safety of client property by checking for irregularities – inspected items, examined items being purchased to ensure that the price codes had not been switched or altered. Was required to preserve order and successfully deal with disruptive, angry or customers who might be impaired by drugs or alcohol and to provide for the security and safety of client (store’s) property while - providing for the security and safety of the store’s personnel. Controlled access to control merchandize that was either expensive or age restricted behind locked cabinets to prevent snatch-n-grab thieves. When not on the register, patrolled assigned site location within the store to inspect merchandise, practiced passive shop lifting prevention methodologies, checked and reported to the manager or the maintenance staff any unsafe conditions from improperly stacked merchandise, mechanical or equipment problems and/or hazards of wet floors to exposed wiring. Responded to incidents of broken, spilled merchandise or customer related emergencies (which required documentation of the event and reports to be written). Stocked, removed merchandise from assigned area (and the front-end of the store if on register) and restocked a wide range of merchandize that (many times) required the lifting and/or moving of merchandise up to 25+ pounds.
  13. 13. Operating the store’s cash register (a POS Computer register) required excellent reaching with hands and arms, stooping, kneeling, crouching and crawling to retrieve dropped merchandise or funds. Always operated the register required that the register be concisely checked, monitored and observed for any mechanical problems. Whenever there was a transaction with checks or credit cards it was vital that a check be made to insure that the purchaser(s) were authorized person(s) to use the credit card or verify that the card was not stolen…” Does it show the employer that she has the NEEDED skills to be a security guard? How many of the 18+ skills did she list in her job details? If you were a computer screening for 18+ skills did you find any? So, would she qualify? Thought so!

  16. 16. INSIDER JOB SHACK…SECURITAS! SECURITY OFFICER INTERVIEW - I APPLIED ONLINE AND THE PROCESS TOOK 2 WEEKS Interview Details – Okay so I applied online and got a call after a couple days later asking me to come in for an interview. I went in signed in at the front desk and the receptionist gave me a packet to fill out paperwork and an indecent report. I turned that in and waited for my interview. They asked simple questions about my history and me. Was told I would get a call if my background check cleared. Got a call to come into a class (not paid) it was two days four hours a day. Basically a class about the company. Went into orientation the next Monday and then was given the site I would be working at. Interview Question – • WAS THE SITUATION REPORT YOU WRITE WHEN YOU FIRST COME IN. ============================================================= SECURIY OFFICER INTERVIEW - I APPLIED ONLINE Interview Details – They made you take a test over Securitas.com where you answer question like. • WOULD YOU TAKE A PURSE THAT WAS FOUND OR WOULD YOU TURN IT IN? • WOULD YOU TURN IN YOUR BOSS FOR BEING DRUNK ON THE JOB? Stuff like that. As long as you are not a felon and can pass a background check and you are willing to work for a low wage you are in. They also give you a drug test which is the kind that they swab the inside of your mouth with cotton. If they can use you they normally will but if they don't have a spot for you, you might wait weeks to start work. ============================================================== SECURITY OFFICER INTERVIEW - I APPLIED ONLINE AND THE PROCESS TOOK 2 WEEKS Interview Details – I applied for Securitas because my dad said that they're the security company that works at Intel and that he'd been talking to one of the guards who said they're hiring like crazy. He told me to go in and gave me the guard's name. They didn't call me back for 2 weeks when I applied online. They finally did call me for an interview and I just had it this morning. When I showed up, the office was filled with people waiting for their interview too. They had CNN playing on the TV in the waiting room. The receptionist made me sign in and I was given my application pack, which included everything I filled out online, and a mock incident report, which during the interview they didn't even tell me if I did right or not because I've never worked security before. There was one guy in the waiting room dressed in business casual, a woman in a long sleeve Quicksilver tee and sweatpants, and a couple, and also a father and son applying on the computer. My interview was supposed to be at 11:30 but since everybody arrived before me, I sat and watched as they pulled everybody back for their interview. Within 2 minutes, they were on their way again. I soon found out why as I was pulled back. I was expecting to get these hard hitting questions, something worth a challenge but it was yet more paperwork. The interviewer just asked all these questions off of a packet, "Do you have a valid license?", "What's your driving record like?", "Would you be able to work overtime and holidays?" That was it. Then I was sent on my way while she said she would have to review my application with the other interviewer and would let me know. Interview Question – • WHY DO YOU WANT TO BE A SECURITY OFFICER? =============================================================== IN HOUSE JOB FAIR MAY 6 @ SECURITAS USA – PHOENIX, AZ We will be hosting an in house job fair May 6th, 2013 from 9am-1pm at 2122 E. Highland Ave Ste #100 Phoenix, AZ 85016. WE CURRENTLY HAVE FULL TIME – PART, ENTRY & PRO OPENINGS!
