Becoming a CIS officer begins by completing our Online Employment Application. We strongly recommend that you complete the application at home on your personal computer before coming to our office.
The first part of the application is a pre-screening questionnaire to ensure that you meet basic eligibility requirements. If you meet the basic criteria, the application will allow you to proceed. If not, you will be instantly notified and redirected accordingly.
Once your application is received, it will be reviewed by our HR Department to determine if you meet CIS and state regulatory requirements. Our HR team will then initiate a criminal background check and contact you to schedule an interview.
Depending on your location within Florida, your interview will take place either at our Corporate Headquarters in Largo, our Orlando branch or our Ft. Lauderdale branch. During your interview, you will meet with a member of our HR team.
This initial meeting is an opportunity for HR to review your application with you and discuss your credentials and your previous work and life experience. HR will also answer any questions you may have about CIS. Depending on availability, you may also meet with a member of our Command Staff.
If you are a good candidate to be a CIS officer, HR will initiate an employment history check and contact your prior employer(s) to verify employment.
*THE ORAL BOARD OPTION*
If we can’t make contact with your previous employer(s), or if there are unusual circumstances in your case, CIS may elect to conduct an oral board review. This is an opportunity for CIS to discuss with you and gain understanding of matters relating to your prior employment and situation. HR will inform you if an oral board is required and schedule a date and time.
Once we have satisfactorily verified your employment history, you may receive a conditional hire offer. Employment as a CIS officer requires satisfactory results on the following tests: drug urinalysis, IQ test, psychological test and personality profile.
CIS requires all new officers to complete this series of standard tests to determine their suitability for certain types of assignments. These tests are conducted at the interview location and require between one and two hours to complete.
Upon successful completion of steps one through three, CIS may offer you a position as a Protection Officer. If you accept a position, there are a few things you will need to do before you begin training.
CIS has developed and practices a methodology that is unique to CIS. In order to protect our proprietary interests, CIS requires all new officers to sign a non-disclosure and non-competition agreement along with the CIS Character Statement.
When your paperwork is complete, you will be scheduled for classes to receive your D and G licenses, if needed. Once you are licensed and have completed Orientation, you will be issued a CIS uniform and scheduled for Field Officer Training.
Upon completion of Field Officer Training, you will be given a field assignment and will begin working as a CIS practitioner.
We hope this assists you with beginning your journey to joining the CIS family of professionals and helps you to become one of the best-of-the-very-best.
