Application Details

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AlliedBarton in December 2009.

Interview Details

Interview was standard. I was asked about my previous work experience, where I was trying to be in 5 years. I also was asked what hours I was willing to work since they had a couple of shifts to fill. I was intially hired to work a regular full time shift but somehow I ended being recruited as a floater so they asked me all types of questions regarding my availability since I would be on call 24/7.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at AlliedBarton in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    I met the Oakland office Recruiters at Cal Works presentation they had for a group of 50 people who were intrested in the field. The whole pitch was really about what AlliedBarton was looking for they really narrowed pretty much the whole group it seemed except a lucky few and everything he was looking for I had and in fact I was the only one that group who went on to be a security guard . For instance he painted the security field as a bad job in a sense and well things that you will be doing that most probly would not do saying things like standing long hours maybe in the rain being called at 3:00 Am to come in to work doing 60 sometimes 80 hours of over time is not uncommon in business forget about holidays forget about taking kids to school let me tell you this The Recruiter said folks You will have no life okay no life if you have so much as a speeding ticket in lhe last 6 months come see us in 2 years if you have a DUI from back in 1992 Dont think of even stepping in our doors have misdeamenor for the smallest amount of substance the case has tto be five years and be expunged felonies forget about even if it was in 1975 He started to say that they also give you a special company phone and he extended it out from his waist which corded to his waist he said see this folks this is your leash we will know ware you are at all times this phone tells us your exact location and you are to have it on you at all times people were like shocked he said if we call you at 2 :00 AM to come in to cover an officer and you try to say well your 2 hours away or try to make some excuse there will be no excuse becuase we can tell that your at home asleep. Okay so no one in that room wanted to work for these guys you could see it in there face once he said all that but all though he said all the benefits and good pay and just a great locations to work an so forth wel I was still exdcited and said I dont care I will do everything he said I wanted to try this fireld of work out
    So I call the recruiter 2 days later to tell him I sent my application in. He pulled my application up and invited to the oakland office and first thing he says to me before we even get to the interviewroom he has my app in his hands hes looking down at it and says so nothing I said to you during that presentation scare you? I said no. He said really nothing I said scared you during that presentation? I said nope not at all. He said are you sure you were listening>? oh yeah /i was . he said alright come on in have a seat I knew I already had the job becuase I had no fear what so ever and realy was eager to work for them and I will do what they say.. He told me during the interview he said look the way you advance in this company is what your gonna have to do and are expected to do if you even think of expecting a raise or becoming supervisor if you want to rise the ony way that is done here is fi when I say jump you say how high? Have no limits on your schedule if we call you to come to work you come to work Do exactly what we say and you will go far.
    From there I was driven and excited and yea there were times i did some crazy hours and i didnt care becuase hey with all that over time I knew i was getting me a nice fat check and they pay each week so that was cool.. alright peace out!! sorry for the mis spells and grammer but I in a hurry .. good luck!!

    Interview Questions
    • I had two interviews same day so when asked by the second manager he said to me why should we even hire you?? you have nothing on your job history that says you know anything close to this field of work.. tell me a good reason your gonna have to convince me really becuase this app says nothing .. ( i use to work sales floor and a rental car agency)
      I just said I always wanted to do this job I know I can do it im excited about it I said
      he said well that dont tell me much but I get a good sense from you. so give you a try.
