    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at AlliedBarton (Dallas, TX (US)).

    Interview

    Very Professional. They were real with me and did not beat around the bush. The recruiter Shonda Nickerson was also professional. The pre employment tests where ok. They were there of course to weed out folks. Overall I would say that they are serious about the group of people they hire, and want the best for their team.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AlliedBarton (Orlando, FL (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I attended one interview and was hired on the spot. However I requested to be interviewed as a candidate for FLEX Lv II security officer and had to follow up for that in a week or less. After that I was schedule to go back in for orientation. At orientation I met two site managers and was thrown into training at their sites lol. The interview itself was one on one and they are basically sitting down with you because you already got the job. Just don't say anything stupid.

    Interview

    I received my call back about 2 weeks after applying. The interview process was simple verification of the information provided on my resume. The interviewer actually attempted to steer me away since I was overqualified, but I was desperate for a job at the time and could not refuse. I did not get the position I applied for and was instead sent where the company needed more personnel.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. I tried to get assigned to a position that fit my qualifications. After all was said and done, I was sent to wherever officers were needed. Pay is contractual based on the location you are sent.
