The recruitment of qualified personnel has been one of the most important factors in the success of our company. We seek ex-military and retired law enforcement professionals, and candidates with Peace Officers Standards of Training (POST) certification as well as entry level candidates seeking a career as a professional in the security industry. Overton actively recruits officers at job fairs and local college campuses, as well as with local media and traditional classified advertisements. When possible, it is the policy of Overton to hire full-time officers to regular 40-hour permanent schedules. While the greater portion of officers fall into this category, we do have a cadre of part-time employees who fill open shifts, or special assignments. All contractual obligations are always satisfied.
In order to provide equal employment and advancement opportunities to all individuals, employment decisions at Overton are based on merit, qualifications and abilities. Except where required or permitted by law, employment practices are not influenced or affected by an applicant’s or employee race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or any other characteristic protected by law. Overton will make reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals with known disabilities unless doing so would result in an undue hardship. This policy governs all aspects of employment, including selection, job assignment, compensation, discipline, termination, and access to benefits and training.
At Overton Security, our unwavering commitment to quality commences with a meticulous hiring process. The officers we bring on board not only serve as ambassadors for Overton Security and the broader industry but, more importantly, they directly represent our clients. Employing a rigorous screening process for all applicants, we further subject them to an intensive evaluation tailored to specific security positions. Our screening approach isn’t about eliminating candidates; instead, it is a discerning selection process. We actively seek out individuals with the skill requirements essential for each assigned job, underscoring our commitment to maintaining a high level of training and expertise.
