Allied Universal, a California-based security and facility services company, is looking to hire more than 500 security professionals in the Denver and Fort Collins areas during a hiring open house Wednesday.

The company will be offering in-person interviews at the open house and the option to complete an online application and video interview.

“We are recruiting for all shifts for all levels of experience,” said Allied Universal Recruiter Crystal Harris. “Interviews will be conducted by account managers and offers will be made on the spot.”

Allied Universal is an $18 billion company with more than 800,000 employees around the globe, providing proactive security services and cutting-edge smart technology.

Current employment opportunities at Allied Universal include technology services, event coordinating, corporate leadership, sales and janitorial services.

Wednesday’s open house will emphasize security workers, including lobby ambassadors, access control officers, vehicle and bike patrol, dispatchers, site supervisors, client managers and security guards.

“Our clients rely on us to keep our communities and businesses safe,” said CEO Steve Jones. “Our security professionals play a pivotal part ensuring facilities can continue business as usual and other businesses that had to close can rest assured that their assets will remain protected.”

For full-time positions, benefits include medical and dental coverage, life insurance, 401(k) and holidays.

Allied Universal is an equal opportunity employer committed to hiring a diverse workforce.

The open house will follow COVID-19 gathering guidelines, as do the company’s regular office procedures.
