    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at ADT Security Services in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Its not hard. Phone interview, aptitude test (very easy), face to face interview, drug test, and background test.

    Interview Questions
    • Are you comfortable with door to door sales calls? The question really should be, "are you comfortable making 60+ door to door sales calls, 40+ telephone calls, trying to sell an overpriced commodity service that has been around for 30 years?" You really need to be comfortable doing the latter, not the former.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Its a commission plan. There is no real negotiation. You either take it or leave it. Its going to change for the worse shortly anyway. The commission plan changes about twice a year. I have yet to see it change for the better.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at ADT Security Services in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, telephone assessment, face to face interview. They advertised no experience necessary. I was told I seemed rather reserved for the position. Basically, the interview was a personally review. I was willing and ready to give it my all for a commission based position. They were looking for someone very aggressive and assertive who wouldn't take no for an answer. I sent a thank you email later that day. I haven't received a response thus far after three weeks.

    Interview Questions
    • How much revenue have I generated for a company via sales. Again the position was advertised as no experience necessary.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ADT Security Services.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by recruiter but follow up was difficult by both recruiter and hiring manager. Fairly casual interview, straight forward - hiring Manager liked to talk about himself rather than focus on the position. Painted a pretty realistic picture of daily routine and expectations.
    High turn over so interview process was quick and painless.

    I interviewed with Mike Woods at the Torrance office and he was happy with me and my interview, so since I was a ways away from his office he suggested I contact Rich Pintang at the Anaheim office. I interviewed with Rich and again it went well. I was made an offer on the spot and without any other job offers at the time I had to take it.
