    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at AlliedBarton (Atlanta, GA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview occurred in Atlanta, 3 days after I applied. It was extremely brief, I don't believe this company is particularly selective in its hiring practices. They do drug test and conduct a background check.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AlliedBarton.

    Interview

    I received my call back about 2 weeks after applying. The interview process was simple verification of the information provided on my resume. The interviewer actually attempted to steer me away since I was overqualified, but I was desperate for a job at the time and could not refuse. I did not get the position I applied for and was instead sent where the company needed more personnel.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. I tried to get assigned to a position that fit my qualifications. After all was said and done, I was sent to wherever officers were needed. Pay is contractual based on the location you are sent.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AlliedBarton (Clinton, IA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Standard interview, nothing special. They asked some strange questions about handling dead bodies. It was for a hospital client. I actually ended up moving a few stiffs, so I guess they weren't joking about that part. They asked basic interview questions. Short of punching them in the face, your pretty much guaranteed a job if you get to the interview.

    • Can you walk long distances for long periods of time?   1 Answer
