    Security Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at AlliedBarton in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process was straight forward. They use HireRight for a thorough background check of employees. I was not interviewed because I knew the HR rep before hand and she already knew that I was the type of person that they were looking for. I had never worked as security before and did not have any prior experience or training.

    After being hired, but before going to work, I met with the site supervisor and had the position explained in detail to me. There was a day of training before going to work at the site and later there was a day of first-aid/CPR/AED training. They have online training modules that you are required to do after you are hired and every so often after you are hired.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    They don't realy negotiate. Like most security firms, the pay is dictated in the contract with the company that they are providing services for.

    Security Officer/SPO Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at AlliedBarton in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initially I applied online and went to meet with a recruiter. There was no interview with the recruiter as he just verified my security licenses. He sent me to an interview on the contract site which consisted of three interviews. My initial impression of the site was poor because I saw security officers with empty duty belts. The site was supposed to be armed. This lead me to believe that this security was purely for the dog and pony show. The first two interviewers were friendly. The third one was with the Operations Manager. The Operations Manager preached customer service but was anything but friendly or polite.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    Security looked to be a dog and pony show and leadership that preaches customer service only to be impolite. Not a place I want to work.
