I applied online - interviewed at AlliedBarton in January 2014.

After you pass a background check and onsite drug test you are pretty much hired, you will be asked to come back for a paid training day.

Site Supervisor Interview

Site Supervisor
Moore, OK

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at AlliedBarton.

Interview Details – It's one interview with a recruiter from AlliedBarton, if they want you they will hire you on the spot. You answer some of typical situation questions that you get in general interviews. And you will take a drug test while you are there interviewing. It's pretty much a no brainer if you are used to the situational style questions. And this goes for guards and supervisor interviews.

Negotiation Details – There really isn't any negotiations, you are paid what the current client decides to pay you. If you're a supervisor then 95% of the time you will get a M-F day shift. Only on special occasions will your shift vary.

Client Value Manager Interview

Client Value Manager

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AlliedBarton.

Interview Details – The interview process consisted of two interviews, one conducted by the local District Manager and then another by the Program Manager. Both interviews went well and both were thorough. Between the two interviews there was a questionnaire that had to be completed to identify if you had the right personality they were looking to hire. Then the District Manager calls you up and makes a salary offer.

Interview Question – If you wanted to make 6% profit on $100,000 what would you have to charge the client.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The offer appeared to be to low.
