Recruitment process and guidelines

We’re growing, and we recruit regularly for positions primarily in the U.S., but also in other countries around the world.

Because we get a large number of applications for all of our openings, we ask everyone interested in working for us to follow our application guidelines closely. Trying to short-circuit our system makes it less efficient for us – and it won’t improve your chances of employment.

Our recruitment process is very selective and thorough because it has to be: identifying and vetting those with the right hard and soft skills to protect our clients is critical to their wellbeing and our success. You can expect the process to take from four to six weeks from application to employment.

We highly recommend that you read our Guide to Careers in
Executive Corporate Protection prior to applying for any job with AS Solution

Recruitment process and guidelines for protective security jobs at AS Solution

  • Only those able to pass our physical fitness test should apply for protective security jobs. See below for more information.
  • We highly recommend that you read our Guide to Careers in Executive Corporate Protection prior to applying for any job with AS Solution.
  • Next, visit our Current Openings page to browse the jobs we’re advertising, and see if your qualifications match our requirements. You are also welcome to submit a general application.
  • Use our online forms to apply for either an open position or for general employment.
  • After you complete the online application process, you will receive an automated response confirming that we have received your application. There is no need to contact us to see if we received your application.
  • If your qualifications match our requirements for a current opening, we will reach out for an initial information request. Please note that only candidates who are considered a good client fit will be contacted at this point in the process; we appreciate your understanding of this.
  • After the initial information request has been completed, we will inform selected candidates that they are still in the running and ask them to complete our physical fitness test (PFT). Everyone who is applying for a protective security job (executive protection and residential security agents, for example) must pass this test in order to move to the next step in the selection process. See our PFT standards for men and women below.
  • All applicants who reach this stage will be contacted for an initial phone interview. We recommend that you prepare for this by reading this website, including our career guide and some of our blogs.
  • Once an applicant successfully passes the phone interview, the vetting process truly begins. From here you can expect further interviews, different forms of testing and, of course, full-scope background screening. Since our process is largely proprietary, we do not list all of it here.
  • Final selection of candidates takes place after completion of the vetting process. In some cases shortlisted candidates will be interviewed by the client organization as well.
