1.
Are you aware of the sectors for which we provide security services? Please list at least three.
The hiring authority would like validation that you have researched GardaWorld before your interview. Comb through their company website and Wikipedia page, taking special note of any 'Services' sections, and companies they highlight as valued clients. You should have a good understanding of what they do, who they serve, and within which industries before attending your interview.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I have researched GardaWorld a great deal before coming here today. You serve a significant range of sectors, including banking, healthcare, and special private events. I have experience in security services for events and festivals, and I look forward to expanding my knowledge into other esteemed areas of security."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"The security services that you offer range from security guards to mobile patrol, event security, and even technical security solutions. From my research, and what I understand, you serve clients such as (list a couple of current clients from their website)."
2.
What type of security training have you received in the past?
Walk the interviewer through any security training that you may have received from a previous security services position. Your coursework may be on your resume; however, the interviewer is not asking for another bulleted list. They want you to bring the training to life for them. Discuss which training you excelled in, which coursework was your favorite, or how you finished top of the class!

If you are new to your career and without any formal training, that is okay too! Avoid leading with the negative (I don't have...) and, instead, lead with the positive and mention how you have taken the initiative to self-teach online for instance.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"In my previous role, I received excellent training in police support services, which was an exciting opportunity. I was able to learn a lot about the logistics surrounding monitoring public areas and responding to lower-priority calls. I look forward to additional training with GardaWorld as I am keen to grow in my security services career."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Since applying to GardaWorld I have taken the initiative to take an online course on security basics. I have learned the fundamentals of security services, safety, and best practices. I am eager to learn much more through your formal training program."
3.
GardaWorld believes in continued education opportunities. If given a chance to expand your training on any security services topic, which would you choose?
When a potential employer mentions continued education opportunities, chances are, you're in a great place! Think about the future career opportunities that you would like to see with GardaWorld and then draw a line between that goal, and what you need to learn to get there. Be sure to express excitement for continued education, and opportunities to expand your career.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I appreciate that GardaWorld offers educational and training opportunities to employees! If given the opportunity to expand my knowledge in any specific area, I would choose to learn more about AI, Machine Learning, and Robots in Security. I believe this is where a significant focus will be very soon when it comes to security services."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I am eager to carve out a successful career in the security services industry, and so I would choose to begin with the fundamentals of patrol and emergency response. I feel that with the right basics, I can grow an excellent career with GardaWorld."
4.
Of all the career options at GardaWorld which is most interesting to you?
The purpose of this question is for the interviewer to gain assurance that you are interested in growing with their company over time. Before your interview, take some time to comb through the GardaWorld careers website, making a note of any positions that may be of interest to you in the future. If anything catches your eye, read the job description, and learn a bit about what you would need to do to land a promotion into this role down the road.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I see that you are hiring for a high profile security guard to work on behalf of a luxury goods client. The bulk of my experience has been on jobs such as shopping mall or evening premise patrol. I would love to work my way into a role like this with more hours and responsibilities. I read that you require a Police Foundations or Law & Security diploma for a position such as this one. This education is something I am eager to complete over time so that I can earn similar roles in the future."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I am interested in being a loss prevention officer in a team lead function where I train and mentor other security services professionals. I see there are many opportunities to grow within GardaWorld and this is just one of the many career options that I found fascinating when combing through your careers page."
5.
Employees of GardaWorld must pass a series of background checks including criminal, drug, and credit. Are you willing to comply?
For reasons that you are already aware, anyone hired for a security services position needs to comply with a robust vetting process. The hiring authorities at GardaWorld must be very cautious on who they hire; for the safety of themselves, their clients, and the general public.

As a security professional, you will be working with the public and with vulnerable individuals. Assure the interviewer that you are most willing to comply with any form of background check they require. If possible, bring a copy of a recent police background check with you to your interview. Although this action will not be everything the interviewer needs for your file, this will show initiative.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I am ready and willing to comply with any background check required. My record is clean; I have a strong credit history and am drug-free. I brought with me a copy of my recent police check that you are free to add to my candidate file."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I am willing to comply with any background and security check required. I have nothing to hide and am excited to begin my security services career with GardaWorld."
