    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at AlliedBarton in December 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring process is very simple and is a breeze to get through. I applied online and received an email the next day from a recruiter located at Allied Barton. I was interviewed by the recruiter the next day and was scheduled for another interview with the account manager the next day. I was asked the simplest question like "how long have you worked in security" or "what made you want to become a security officer".
