The hourly rate is not fantastic,but every year you get 55 cents increase.

Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at ABM Industries (Minneapolis, MN) in October 2015.
Not the best. Really unprofessional and unorganized for a large company. I Got a phone interview with Hr in Chicago and my information transferred to the manager here in MN. The manager never told me his name so when I got to the location, the receptionist didn't know who to call. It took almost ten minutes to figure who it was while I was just standing there looking like an idiot. Once the manager came, he sounded like he didn't know I was coming even though he was the one who contacted me for an interview because He even asked me "you're here for the management internship?" Well of course I'm there for the interview, what else? You called me to come. At least expect me and know why I'm here. The Interview process was ok. None of the questions were about the company or job description/qualifications but rather just about management in general. It Had some questions I expected and some I didn't. Overall the questions gave me a better idea of what to expect for similar interviews in the future. I know I didn't get the job because I didn't give him the answers he wanted to hear and I felt a little confused after the interview. We both ended our interview on a positive note though by having a nice quick conversation about our personal life. I did wish this place was a bit more organized and professional though.

(Trick question) -A time you've made a difficult decision and he steps you took making it. -Name a time you found out how to do something that no one else did.
