    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.

    Emergency Dispatch Operator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at ADT Security Services in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    After applying I received an e-mail to take assessment. About 3days later a recruiter called to schedule an interview. Interview was very informal basic questions like "What are your weaknesses, Name a time when you had a difficult situation at work and how did you handle it?" Then you start dealing with HR who is trying to verify jobs and education, IDK what company does them for them but I had to verify my own jobs and education with w2's and showing my diploma was not enough I had to sign a paper for my school to release that info to them.

    Adt Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pennsauken, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pennsauken, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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
    Reasons for Declining

    I decided I needed a base salary and preferably less travel.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 7+ weeksinterviewed at ADT Security Services.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was difficult with a total of 4 interviews including one panel interview of 10 other managers. The people seemed nice and the atmosphere of the office felt like family. The look of the office was very unprofessional, dirty, furniture so old it was falling apart and it was very dark in the mid section of the office.

    Interview Questions
    • I was not asked a question that I felt to be difficult. I did my research and was very comfortable in the interviews.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    It took over a month and a half before I was on board. The hiring manager would not negotiate salary, stating that HR informed him he could not go any hire. It was not until after I was brought on board that I learned that I was not even being paid at the low end of the scale. I was brought in way under what I should have been brought in at. Then to top it all off I was told I would have double responsibility then what was originally discussed in the interview. Not a great way to bring on a new employee.

    SGL Representative Interview Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greensboro, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greensboro, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at ADT Security Services in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I experienced the same situation as the previous posting described except in addition to that the company used my application information to try and generate sales leads. While I was waiting on my interviewer (who was 45 minutes late) someone else in the company was repeatedly calling my cell phone trying to sell me their products. The only way that representative knew the information he did was off of my job application/references/resume. Is that even legal? Somehow I doubt it.

    Interview Questions
    • There was none, the interviewer offered me a job without actually interviewing me, which made me suspicious.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I was turned off by the fact the same company I was interviewing with was also trying to solicit me at the same time. Very unprofessional!

    Interview Details

    I got an unexpected phone call, and had the interview on the spot. They basically wanted to tknow if you have no other options, and how desperate youd be to take the position. When I mentioned I have other interviews already lined up, and that I was not really that interested in the position, we said our goodbyes.

    Reasons for Declining

    Did not like their business model.
