What is a Security Interview?

The Security Interview is one of the most accurate and effective pre-employment screening methods available. It is designed to obtain the real truth from job applicants, not just what they would like you to believe.

Our interviewers are highly trained professionals well versed in Behavioral Analysis interviewing techniques. The interviewer evaluates an applicant’s truthfulness by observing their subtle verbal and non-verbal behavior in response to structured job related inquires.

Areas covered include theft, dishonesty, falsification of employment history, current drug usage, attendance and punctuality concerns, as well as general “job fit”.
