    Small Business Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ADT Security Services in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied and was contacted by a recruiter who was just awesome throughout the whole process.

    Over a two week period there was a phone interview, a face to face with my eventual Sales Manager and a background check and drug screen.

    The training process starts once you accept the job and resume work. There's training pay of $1650 for the first month and it gets less each month after that. This isn't a problem if you've begun to get the hang of working Salesforce and your territory for useful leads & referrals. If not however...

    ...you will have failed the unspoken last part of the interview process.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    There's no negotiation. ADT pays a training salary for four months and benefits (Health, 401K etc) are better than average. After that, you make uncapped commission pay. Your work "negotiates" your pay but the Compensation Plan is pretty awesome. About 25% of the sales reps make six figures. I'm still working my way there.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenbelt, MD
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed 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 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at ADT Security Services.

    Interview Details

    Pretty straightforward. Phone interview with an in house recruiter followed by a face to face round with hiring manager. There is a background check as well.

    Interview Questions
    • There are not any real difficult questions really. The hiring manager is going to want to know that you are willing to make 50 calls a day, handle company appointments, and hit the streets for four or more hours a day. Any person with a 12-15 hour work day should have no problem achieving those goals....   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Its a commission only sales job, and the commission plan is your guide for what you will make. The commission plan will change three times in the first year. Essentially there is no negotiation, and even if there is, its going to change, and probably for the worse.
