    I worked at Guardian Protection Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Incredible support for sales people, amazing training, great management structure, lots of autonomy.

    Cons

    Commission plan was kind of convoluted, hard to understand at first. A little harder to sell because they don't have the name recognition in most parts of the country that some companies like ADT have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing comes to mind. My entire experience with this company was top notch

    Be prepared to left to your own devices almost completely. The "warm" leads mostly come from paying off installers.

    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Warrendale, PA

    I worked at Guardian Protection Services as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Some positives of working at Guardian Protection Services were the management, the hours, the ability to openly communicate with the management, and the high amount of leads that were received. It was also nice to have facilities like a full cafeteria and gym available.

    Cons

    The negatives of working at Guardian Protection Services consist of the systems being out of date and difficult / time consuming to learn.

    Pros

    Great Pay, great customers, nice office

    Cons

    Poor schedules, too many "cliques", a lot of inner office affairs going on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When a schedule is clearly offered, accepted and set in a specialty department, stick to it.

    I worked at Guardian Protection Services

    Pros

    Company is structured well, management is competent and fair to employees and customers. Sufficient latitude is given sales employees in scheduling appointments, and adapting sales presentation to particular circumstances (so long as company policies are adhered to).

    Cons

    The only con is that the Home Technology Division is limited by the new home construction industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work in training, and in requiring strict adherence to policies and procedures. Give sales staff more detailed reports and constructive feedback.
