    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AlliedBarton (Franklin Lakes, NJ) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I was recommended so while the process was a bit backwards, it was very easy. Doesn't change the fact that I was lied to about the job duties. Example: They had me working traffic as a security guard.

    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

    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.
