OUTSIDE SALES Interview

OUTSIDE SALES
Norcross, GA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ADT Security Services in May 2011.

Interview Details – Through a combination of recruiter emails and telephone calls a selection was made. That totalled about a week. Then met with a recently promoted manager to speak about the sales role. He was much more interested in asking questions about my home life and my goals than about the job at hand. He left me in an office for about ten minutes and returned with a hiring package, I signed and started the following week.

Interview Question – Asking if I had trouble driving defensively since the main part of the job would be daily travel.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I negotiated the telephone allowance everything else in the comp plan was typical.

OUTSIDE SALES Interview

OUTSIDE SALES
Sacramento, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ADT Security Services in August 2011.

Interview Details – The interview was easy and I got the job as an outside sales rep. The comp plan was not explained clearly I don't even think the manager understood it. Also you have to drive your own car 2000 to 3000 per month and it takes over a month to get mileage reimbursement.

Interview Question – the only questions were about your sales backround   Answer Question
