    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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI
    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
    Negotiation Details
    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.
