    Pros

    Pure meritocracy, you are payed 100% according to what you deserve. Only 4 months of work but during those 4 months a person can make multiple times what he or she would otherwise make in a year, especially if still in school full time. Even 10 or 20 times more. The sky is the limit if you are good at it and work hard.

    Cons

    It's hard work, gives up most normal "fun" a college summer experiences for 4 difficult months of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep innovating

    Pros

    Great income potential. It is straight commission so you must be able to handle that, but the income opportunities are amazing. You work for 4 months per year and can make $0, or i have seen people make over $150,000 in their own commissions not including any management overrides.

    Cons

    Some sales managers aren't prepared for the job. APX will allow anyone who has proven themselves as a salesman and can recruit a team of salesman to be a sales manager. Not all good salesman and recruiters make good sales managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need more management training. They are all great salesman or they wouldn't have the position.

    Pros

    good compensation
    housing provided
    pod casts

    Cons

    no 'special deals'
    Contract issues and point bank issues still being resolved,
    cleaning fee assigned even though my apt was spotless at the end of year
    no sign on bonus? what the heck

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    let sales reps that cant work over the summer work out special payscales/deals with you so they can sell during school

    I worked at APX Alarm

    Pros

    Very good management from upper to office , good teamwork,interesting and motivating training, fun work atmosphere (in my office anyway), get to travel during the summer and see different states, good compensation for time put in, allows you to go to school during "off season", ability to make more money in 4 months than in a whole year without much education required you just have to work hard

    Cons

    -since you are a contract/commissioned employee, no real benefits
    -pretty intense work 6/days a week, 10 hour days during the hot summer months
    - satisfying work atmosphere could depend on your manager/co workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep treating your employees well, keep having great customer service and making sure the reps are trained properly w/ an emphasis on integrity/honesty on the doors...APX is pretty much everything the company I came from wasn't, which is a good thing

    Pros

    Great pay. Work with a lot of great people. Allows those with little work experience to prove themselves in the work place.

    Cons

    Normally will be necessary to relocate for the four to five month period. Long days. Long weeks. Can become redundant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you are doing a fa-nominal job. This will be my fifth year with APX and have been very grateful for this opportunity.
