Security Officer Selection
Security officers are the living embodiment of everything a security service company stands for. At USA, we are seeking security officers to serve as ambassadors for a world-class customer service culture. The essentials on our hiring checklist include integrity, sincerity, a professional appearance and a personal history that demonstrates a strong work ethic.
We develop a strategic recruiting plan to target the most promising candidates for each unique client site and security service operation. We develop detailed position descriptions for each assignment and recruit from a variety of sources:
We also recruit heavily from the military through Recruiting America’s Brave, our campaign to provide careers for veterans and military spouses.
We conduct comprehensive background investigations to ensure that applicants meet stringent standards and qualifications. Following are our minimum requirements for security officer or loss prevention associates:
Our security officer background investigation process is designed to ensure that we only employ security officers who meet our exacting employment criteria, contract specifications and regulatory requirements. We conduct the following screening procedures, at minimum:
We guarantee that security officers at each client site satisfy all employment requirements and qualifications through our Past Positive® Applicant Background Verification System. New employees can only be added to our payroll system once documentation that all requirements are met is transmitted into the Past Positive® system. Compliance officers personally inspect all documentation to ensure full compliance with company, contract and regulatory requirements.
Once we have a pool of qualified security service candidates, we profile individual skill sets and personality traits to match people to assignments where they are most likely to succeed.
