It can take anywhere from 1 week to 1 month. Its all depending on your background check. etc.. and most of all if you pass your "test/drug test". If you didn't the 1st time well good luck to you.

I do believe it's about 2 days.

the initial interview with a hiring manager, either they give you the job on the spot, you get your site you'll be working at, the training days and after that you get your uniform.

About a week for a Security Officer. When a position becomes available they need a replacement quickly. Mainly depends on how long it takes to get background check.
