    Custom Homes Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. 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 Questions
    • 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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Salt Lake City, UT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. 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.

    Residential Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chatsworth, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chatsworth, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. 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 Questions
    • 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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. 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 Questions
    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.

    Adt Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Pennsauken, NJ
    Anonymous Employee in Pennsauken, NJ
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ADT Security Services in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I spoke to a internal recruiter after I applied on-line. After a brief conversation I was sent to speak with the hiring manager. Pretty simple and straight forward process. He seemed ill prepared and over whelmed. The whole time I was there he was on his cell phone or business phone. Commission only job so long as your not a complete bone-head they should extend an offer being that there is no investment on their end. BTW be advised the background check is very thorough. Employment verification,criminal background, and driver abstract.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing tricky that I can remember. Just do normal diligence and be somewhat prepared and you'll be fine.   Answer Question
