    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at ABM Industries.

    Interview

    Applied online. Took more than 2 months to get reply. Got a call to interview on phone for Supervisor position. She mentioned it was a Night shift job and I told her the add said it was Day shift. I declined to continue interview. She appreciated it. I applied the next day for the Account Manager job. The next day I got an email stating:
    Unfortunately, we are not moving forward with your application for the 108855 - ASSISTANT MANAGER position.
    I guess if you refuse a position you are immediately place on their list.
    I was surely qualified for the position.

    Aircraft Cabin Agent Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at ABM Industries (Irving, TX) in December 2017.

    Interview

    It was a joint interview because it was a job fair. It was the end of the day so they could have been short with me, but instead the woman was very polite and informative. She noticed my demeanor and complimented me, saying that I would work well in HR or as a manager. It was a relaxed, yet structured environment. I noticed some other people that had a harder time grasping what to do came in, but everyone at ABM HR was very patient and respectful.

    Payroll Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at ABM Industries (Houston, TX) in November 2017.

    Interview

    1st interview with junior recruiter. Asked how I would feel if I had a micro manager. RED FLAG Also asked if I had a problem with working 70+ hrs a week. RED FLAG This phone call was on a Thurs and she asked what day of the week would work for a senior recruiter to call me. I told her well there is only tomorrow since today is Thurs. She never confirmed the call, she just said ok. On Frid, I have two missed calls from the senior recruiter. I called her back and apologized and advised that her call was never confirmed. I told her for the salary they were offering and working 70+ hrs, I would be making $17 less an hour than my current job and that I could not do that. Told her my expectations for salary and she advised she would speak with hiring manager and let me know. Never heard another thing from ABM. Their professionalism and phone interviews are lacking for sure. I appreciate their honestly, but my experience tells me that they have the wrong caliber of people in these roles if the Payroll Director has to micro manage them. Also if they have multiple teams working 70+ hrs a week than they are not well managed and have some major efficiency issues or lack of knowledgeable management perhaps.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at ABM Industries (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Very unprofessional, HR employees seem under qualified. Was reading off of a script and seemed like they were not really listening. Not enough privacy on interview, but seemed to make decisions based on ethnicity.

    • Expected salary, qualifications, discussed familiarity with current employees and relationships.   Answer Question

    Janitor/Cleaner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Spokane, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at ABM Industries (Spokane, WA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    First I had to fill out a lot of paperwork online, mostly to do with background check, which makes sense since they clean a lot of banks and financial institutions! Also to make sure you are of legal status to work in the U.S. Most all of the correspondence was done via email. Then they call you in for a face to face interview!

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were very easy, why do you want to work here, have you done this kind of work before, how much experience do you have. Then they have you watch a video about safety, then at the end you take a test, but it was very easy because they give you a pamphlet to read and all the answers are in there!   1 Answer
