Was interviewed by 2 people, I believe a regional manager and someone from HR, both very pleasant and welcoming. Interview lasted around 30 minutes. Usual interview question based around career history, security roles in general and customer service. Was offered the position the next day so very quick.

Absolutely awful, they decide if they want you before even bothering to speak with you. Then at interview they just go through the motions and insult your intelligence. Crazy to think that this is the attitude of a system that is supposed to be demonstrating respect to its detainees. If your face “fits” then you’ll be fine though.
Shambolic admin system and some poorly educated/cultured staff.

I had an interview in Job Centre office, typical questions asked plus some loosely related to security and how I understand it. They basically check if you're 'normal'. Then a screening process, it could take months, because their admin side is a bit wonky and sometimes lacks common sense. They will ask you to complete several forms, and they will still make mistakes copying it, so you need to contact authorities directly to correct it. Other than that it's pretty straightforward. They will pay for your training, but then take a small chunk of your salary every month to cover that, however there's no interest, you only pay back whatever the course cost.
