Very Easy Interview
I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at ADT in November 2010.
Interview Details – The job was advertised in the newspaper, few details about the position were provided. The ad listed a phone number to a call center, which set up an interview later in the same week. The interviewees were kept waiting for 1 and a half hours in a front office with a TV but no employees present. We could hear a rowdy sales meeting going on, then the staff left in several vans. The manager was young and fast-talking, and seemed impressed with my resume. Few questions were asked, he did most of the talking. As it turned out the job was entry-level door to door sales of security systems, and leads were from neighborhoods where burglaries occurred frequently.
Interview Question – The job is commission only, is that acceptable? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – When I asked whether the company paid for the required permits for solicitation, he became slightly evasive and said no. When I asked about management opportunities he said managers always begin at entry-level, i.e. door to door sales, then become van drivers/closers, then office managers, and finally regional managers. The employees all looked miserable as they left to start their day. The door to door sales job was commission only, contingent upon clients' successful credit check. I did not complete the interview process; before any offer was extended, I told him this was not a good fit for me. I really need work but I don't think I'd have much success doing something like this.
I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at ADT in April 2012.
Interview Details – It went pretty smoothly. They told you about the company and anwsered any questions. After the group interview, you applied online at one of their computers.. background check is very important!!! they call you when that comes through and you begin training!
