    Janitor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ABM Janitorial Services (Houston, TX) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I was called to come in for an interview. On interview day I spoke with the manager of the building for probably 10 minutes tops. Basically told me what the job entailed and then asked me to go to another building to get my paperwork ready to start the next week. If you can pick up a mop I don't think you basically have the job. They make you watch a training video that goes completely out the window when you start your actual job. There was no drug test, just a background check.

    Interview Questions

    • None. I was only asked if I had any experience. That was it.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiating. Pay was 8.35 an hour.
