    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at AlliedBarton (Arlington, VA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The initial contact for an interview was easy. Follow up interaction was very difficult and frustrating. Found it to be habitual among different hiring managers and recruiters that they do not respond to follow-up calls or emails after the interview process; even for those who are offered/hired for the job.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AlliedBarton (Bridgewater, NJ).

    Interview

    Basic interview, questions about past job history, questions about yourself as a person. They tell you what you will be doing on the job, and ask if you can handle it. Not much to the interview, as long as you pass the background check, get your SORA, and have a good driving record, you are good to GO
