Security Officer Interview

Security Officer
Shelton, CT

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at AlliedBarton in March 2012.

Interview Details – Applied online. Was called and given interview time. Showed up very professional looking (got jokes that I looked like FBI). Interviewer looked extremely unprofessional, papers were thrown all over his desk. They actually interviewed me with another candidate at the same time. I should have just walked out then instead of enduring 3 months of this company.

Interview Question – There was none   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Was suppose to be placed in a much higher position, come to find out they jumped the gun and didnt recieve the contract for that company, so I was placed in a low lever security job, much below my qualifications. Unfortunately I needed a job, so I kept it, but for only 3 months. One can only deal with so much bs.
