    Interview Details

    The sale's position is pretty much a meat market, if you arrive dressed nicely and are polite, you will probably go home with a new job. Keep in mind, its a security job with a govt lic. So you will be drug tested, and required to get a livescan.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at ADT Security Services.

    Interview Details

    Good process. It's just as important that you are interested in ADT as ADT is interested in you, so good company and job information is provided. An offer is never made on the first interview. Rather, homework is given and then based on your response to that homework and your desire to continue on to employment, you are then offered a position. The start dates are usually within a week of the last interview.

    Interview Questions
    • How do you handle a customer's objection and how does it make you feel?   Answer Question

    No negotiation. 100% commission.

    Residential Sales Representative Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed 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.

    Security Specialist- Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ADT Security Services in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I responded to an Ad on Craigslist while looking to change careers. I had formerly been in the service industry for 9 years. I was nervous about seeking out other career opportunities due to having very limited experience and with only some college.

    My interview was very quick, and not stressful at all.

    I was then placed into the pre-screening process for the position (drug/background). Two weeks later I was contacted to attend orientation.

    I have sense been promoted first to a sales manager, and then to the Branch Trainer, and now I have been relocated with the company.

    Interview Questions
    • Due to it being a group interview, there were not a lot of questions asked of us. Due to the position being commission based.   Answer Question

    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.
