    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at AlliedBarton (Poughkeepsie, NY) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I was interviewed on the phone and so I was kinda caught off guard when they called me since I thought when companies want to do a phone interview they call you before hand to see what time you will be able to do the phone interview and so mine's lasted about 5-10 minutes and they asked the usual questions and said ok they still got a few more interviews to do then they'll call people to let them know if they make onto the next round or not which is a in person interview

    Interview

    the interview was pretty easy. Very basic interpersonal skills and customer service question. Its similar to the average interview you would have with any company. And there is only 1 interview so it really easy if you know what to say to sell yourself to get a job. I was interviewing for a museum position so it required that you had excellent customer service skills. The interviewer was really pleasant and kept if strictly business. Getting the interview is the hard part, but after that the interview it self is easy.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AlliedBarton (Tukwila, WA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    sent them my resume though their website, I was then called for a phone interview which ended with scheduling an in person interview.

    I thought the in-person interview was going well until I asked them if they could work around the fact that I have a small job already working on Thursdays in the morning to mid afternoon. This proved impossible.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at AlliedBarton.

    Interview

    Went to a job fair and went to their table. I left my email address and he called me about 3 days later. The interview was easy. He asked me like 3 or 4 questions and then left & brought in his supervisor to meet me. I was hired right then and there.

    Interview Questions

    • None really. He asked what would I do if I saw my co-worker stealing. I said talked to my coworker and tell him to stop. The right answer (he told me this) is to tell your supervisor.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    In the interview he asked what do I want to get paid. He gave me a wage offer over my minimum i wanted.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at AlliedBarton (Moore, OK).

    Interview

    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

    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.
