    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at ABM Security Services (Carrollton, GA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Very calm and basic for any job. They were to the point and really just needed employees. Anyone mentally older than 10 could land this job and perform it to its fullest requirements. Interview went well considering the hiring officer was a bit trigger happy and just concerned with getting help. Kind of scary that there was such little screening done. My co-workers could be killers for all I knew.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at ABM Security Services.

    Interview

    Filled out application online. I called a few times to check on the status of my application, each time I was told someone will call me when they get to my application. Finally, my cousin who worked there as well called and spoke to someone in HR that she was friends with and asked if they can pull my application. They did and called me the same day asking if I can come in for an interview the following. I interviewed with someone for HR. They asked a few basic questions: Strength?Weakness? Why should I hire you? Felonies? Can you pass a drug test? Then I waited in the lobby area for about thirty minutes and waited t be called in by one of the Operational Managers. He asked me basic questions as well: When can you start working? What area? What days can you work?He gave me a packet and told me to come in the next day for orientation (with the packet filled out). Technically, not officially hire until you successfully complete the orientation. Orientation was 8 hours. The packet was actually graded and you had to have a certain amount right. Never did the drug test. Passed the background. Offically hired. Assigned to a post 15 minutes away from home. Started working the next day. 1st time working security. Provided no training. Just sent me to a location to relieve someone.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ABM Security Services (San Francisco, CA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    The branch manager pulled a bait and switch, making me an offer, then knocking a dollar off the advertised pay. I was given a large pile of forms to complete and given zero copies of any of it, No training or manuals or handouts apart from the employee handbook were given. No company orientation was given.

    Negotiation

    Don't work there. No negotiations were entered into, just bait and switch.
