    I was interviewed on the phone and so I was kinda caught off guard when they called me since I thought when companies want to do a phone interview they call you before hand to see what time you will be able to do the phone interview and so mine's lasted about 5-10 minutes and they asked the usual questions and said ok they still got a few more interviews to do then they'll call people to let them know if they make onto the next round or not which is a in person interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Corpus Christi, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AlliedBarton in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the job online. About a week later HR called and asked if I'd like to do an interview in a couple of days. Took the interview with HR and they asked me basic questions about me then made me critique myself at my previous job. Went back the next day for an interview with an account manager and they just gaged my personality and then set up a day to come back and take the level 2 non-commisioned officer's test. Came back again, gave them all of required documents (ID, SS Card, Diploma.) Then, took a drug test. Finally, took that level 2 test and after passing, signed what seemed like 200 hiring documents, got fingerprinted afterwards. Got a nice new employee badge and then a post was assigned a few days later.

    District Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Austin, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at AlliedBarton in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    First had a pre-screening phone interview which during that interview was told they would schedule a phone interview with the Area HR Manager. Then had phone interview with Area HR Manager (lasted 20 minutes) resulting in asking me to come in for face to face interview. Had face to face interview with the same Area HR Manager at the Austin office, was told that would be a final panel interview if I made it. Within 2 days, got called back to have a panel interview with 4 people. Lasted about an hour, and was told the Area HR Manager would tell me the result the following week. I NEVER heard back from her, and left her a message after waiting the week and still never got a response. It was really weird and gave me my final opinion of the company so it is a blessing in disguise.
