Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative
Beaverton, OR

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at ADT in August 2012.

Interview Details – It took two in person interviews. They both went very well, not too long. They were very informative and expectations were out lined. They are a very nice group of people that I felt very comfortable with. After being hired they sent me to Denver Colorado for a week of training that was very helpful.

Interview Question – None that I can think of.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They offered. I accepted

Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative
Hollis, NH

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ADT.

Interview Details – The interview was scheduled promptly. Upon spending 5-10 minutes in the interview, the unshaven, tired looking manager brought up working 16 hour days. His lack of effort and disinterest in the interview was very disappointing and made it quite clear that this was not a desireable environment. Management has changed since the interview and hopefully improved.....

Interview Question – It may be necessary to work 16 hour days in this position...   View Answer

Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative
Westwood, MA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at ADT in January 2013.

Interview Details – Promised a great deal of freedom, this is a lie, they hire you and think they own every minute of your day six days a week.

Interview Question – Will you work without question six days a week.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Sounds like you can make good money, you cannot. if they do not want you too. Sounds like you will get leads , you will at first. They they pull them away for the new people and tell you it is because you are doing something wrong or they do not like your attitude.

Sales Representative

Interviewed at ADT

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.

Reason for Declining – Did not like their business model.
