Custom Homes Sales Representative Interview

Custom Homes Sales Representative

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ADT Security Services.

Interview Details – I was initially contacted by a recruiter who saw my resume online. Went through a typical process of going over my resume, basic overview of the job, questions about my work experience and comfort with the sales process, etc. She then scheduled a phone interview for me with the area sales manager, who went through a very similar process over the phone. Then we met in person. After that, the job was offered to me.

Interview Question – I don't remember any difficult or unexpected questions. If you are a sales rep and have been on any interviews lately, be prepared for typical questions: Tell me about a difficult situation at work and how you handled it. What are 3 qualities you feel would be important for this position, and why? What would previous employees and coworkers say are your strengths and weaknesses and would you agree with them? Tell me about a time you were given advice or correction by a manager and how did you handle it? Tell me about how you handle stressful situations at work.... That sort of thing.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. This is a commission only job.

District Sales Manager Interview

District Sales Manager
Salt Lake City, UT

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at ADT Security Services in June 2013.

Interview Details – Anyone that applies gets hired straight commission jobs they hire who ever will apply. Recruiters can't get applicants because they have such a bad history and are known to be the worst company to work for. Individuals stay for 1200 training wage and after 30 days when it stops or drops in half they quit.

Interview Question – None its the breath test! They will hire anyone that walks in the door major turnover   View Answer

Negotiation Details – 15 minute phone call

Residential Sales Representative Interview

Residential Sales Representative
Chatsworth, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at ADT Security Services in January 2014.

Interview Details – The interview process is short. You get hired after a preliminary background check, a more indepth FBI check, which you front, once you are in HR signing papers. They do not inform you much of anything. HR is not current with current law changes in reference to benefits.

Interview Question – What was your most difficult sale? Typical question for sales. Nothing out of the ordinary.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was none. You were given a breakdown by month on the "training" salary, they do not tell you you really need to have at least one yr of back up savings/money to survive ADT payroll/sales. New system of payment is not upfront and now takes up to 30 days to get any monies. No residuals of any kind so you are constantly on. They are not honest about the time required...try 6am text messages from your manager to 9:30pm daily except Sunday. Sunday you get the texts in the afternoon.

If I were to do this again, I would not have accepted. Literally, I lost money each day as the use of my vehicle, insurance, gas, meetings all took a toll. In the end, my hourly was $4.92. NOT worth it.

Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at ADT Security Services.

Interview Details – Lots of exaggeration of training and assistance in the interview. The interviewer really lied about the amount of business the company would be drawing in to get the sales staff appointments we could build on to get referrals.

Interview Question – I did not encounter difficult questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It's a commission only position, with very little training or support. What advice would I give? Don't waste your time with a company that doesn't care the least about its employees or current customers.
