    I have been working at Akal Security full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They are genuinely concerned about doing the right thing. They treat their employees fairly and at the same time, work to satisfy their clients. They have an employee hotline where employees can voice their concerns and it goes directly to the top. They have a management team named "Paying People Properly" because they are concerned with getting payroll issues fixed ASAP.

    Cons

    Like any government contract security company, they are restricted by trying to find a balance between winning the contract with a competitive price, and providing good service for that price.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Akal Security.

    Interview Details

    Initially it was hurried and cursory but then, they had just won a large security contract in multiple states with a short notice start-up. When I was interviewed for promotion opportunities they were very thorough and fair. My first interview was in person and the interviewer travelled to meet me. In later interviews I was interviewed on the phone by a panel of members who were calling from various locations.

    Interview Questions
    • I was given several scenario based questions regarding DOL law, discipline and compliance. The answers were required to be comprehensive. It was a case of there being several correct answers, and I was required to provide the MOST correct answer.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    All factors were on the table. I found out later they had a range in mind and allowed me to set the starting point. My suggestion to future applicants is to start high and allow them to work you down. The benefits are fixed but they include vacation, holidays, medical plan and 401K. Bonuses were generous.
