    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at AlliedBarton (New York, NY) in July 2012.

    Interview

    The process was to long, you have to go through several levels and it takes several hours. You have to fill out paperwork, take a drug test at another location, then you have to go back to take a 8 hour class after you already took to get the security license. The company does not pay for you to take the 8 hour class yearly, or to renew license.

    Interview

    AllieBarton Security just offers a job, not a career. The questions aren't difficult. They will ask you ask if you have any customer service skills, computer skills. They may ask if you have any previous security experience or military/law enforcement experience. Then they will also ask you other pointless question about what experience you have that you can bring into security.
