Shift Supervisor Interview

Shift Supervisor
Indianapolis, IN

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at AlliedBarton in May 2011.

Interview Details – The hiring process was nothing new. She brought me into her office and informed me that she had 'plenty' of positions open within my requirements, including one that I could start right away. Three weeks later, I got a hurried phone call at 7:30 in the morning about a special project that needed filled and a request for me to fill it. When I got there that morning, half my training class was going to be working at the 'Start Right Away locale' I had been promised. She had completely forgotten about me working at that position. I went to the special project and worked for two weeks before being integrated into my normal site.

Interview Question – She wanted to know what kind of days of the week I wanted to work. I told her, and she promised me that it was a reasonable request. The thing is, she has no authority over scheduling at ANY of the location. So, when I got to my site, they laughed at my assumption that I would get the requested hours and days. It would have been nice going in to know that, since I would have made a far more educated decision in regards to employment with Allied Barton.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No. They called me in the early morning and I had less than 5 minutes to take it or leave it. I decided to take it because she sounded desperate.

Security Officer Interview

Security Officer
Seattle, WA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AlliedBarton in February 2010.

Interview Details – An easy process, suited well for a one-page resume. One interview with HR, then an interview with a manager you will work under. This manager will likely ask for urine to test on-site without a lab involved. At this point the candidate can take charge and ask why the company is doing their own drug testing (at a field manager level), and wouldn't it be best to have a laboratory experienced with such testing to do it for them. After this the candidate has better control of last-minute discussions about pay, start dates, and certainty of benefits.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work here, given your prior extensive experience.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – It was based on promises of rapid advancement if I accepted a lower initial wage. Initially, I asked for time to think about their offer while I waited for drug a background results. It was an opportunity to talk almost daily with HR and management about pay and initial assignment. Later after being thoroughly vetted, I accepted.
