    Unarmed Security Officer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Allied Universal (Milwaukee, WI).

    Interview

    The interview was fairly simple. There is an online interview with about 3 simple questions. Is there ever a time where you protected someone? Why do you want to work here? And another question that escapes me at the moment.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Allied Universal (Orlando, FL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Poor hiring process. After good observance , hiring is based more on an individuals background more so then their experience. I've seen a lot of former law officers , federal officers and even military get security positions very easily and they made poor security overall. Those with the prior experience were oftenly overlooked. Everything was about background and not experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Binary questions in relevance to my experiences and background , the director seemed more interested in my background then my general experience.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Allied Universal (Houston, TX) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Received a call from a recruiter and interview went well. Followed up in one week and was told that the hiring manager would be reaching out. I never heard from anyone. Reached back out to the recruiter and he never responded back.

    If you are going to have a recruiter, he/she should respond to the applicant respectfully.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 11+ months. I interviewed at Allied Universal (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    Applied online, interviewed with client manager then interviewed with the client of Allied Universal (the site that I am assigned to work at). It was a pretty seamless process, all of the needs and goals expected from Allied were communicated to me up front and I knew what my job would be like pretty early.

    I had to go into the rotunda and wait for the rep from allied to come out from the clients office

    They pull in at least 2 employees, because they are required to interview at least 2 even though it is extremely obvious they have already made their choice based on favoritism.
