    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at ADT Security Services.

    Interview

    I was contacted online via email to schedule a Phone Interview. The recruiter sounded like she was under the influence and blurted out sentences rather quickly and was hard to understand because she had SO much energy in her voice. I gave my canned responses to things like "What do you like about sales?" "Tell me about your best sale recently" "What is your biggest weakness". She said she would forward me to the hiring manager and then send an email to confirm. I received the email with the information.

    The interview was on a Friday with a sales manager and the guy did not even ask me any questions on the interview guide. It was a conversation with a lot of small talk and jokes about his past and currently issues with his company. He went as far to mention a competitor to work for! It was like he was trying to sell me out of taking the job..

    Waste of time I got a call the next week saying the manager was moving forward with other candidates for a job that pays NO salary and offers minimal training wage.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at ADT Security Services (Jacksonville, FL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    They called within a few hours of my application submission, interview scheduled for the next day... Brisk... Sit and wait... Build a tower out of foam plate, cup, straw, tape, etc. Watch a movie that would not play properly... When I attempted to ask my questions I was told they did not have time to answer them... Other people showed up for the interview wearing slippers and pull over shirts.. very unprofessional in most ways... When I reached out to them as I was having a challenge doing their personality assessment they failed to respond at all...

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at ADT Security Services in January 2015.

    Interview

    The first interview was really easy. I got a second interview right away. I am waiting to go in for the second interview. The interview was very informational. She asked a few easy questions just to get to know me. Got the tour of the facility then took a personality test. Passed it and got the second interview. I wonder if the job pays enough because I have to commute thirty minutes to the location north of the river.
