    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at ADT Security Services.

    Interview Details

    This process was streamlined, simple and straight forward amazing given the size of this organization. Did application, spoke to an HR rep, then was given an onsite interview. They flew me to the location, provided pickup, and the entire experience was welcoming. As an applicant you felt if they granted an interview they actually valued their and your time. Spent most of the day, interviews and tours of the location, able to ask questions of anyone.

    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate, as they asked for compensation requirements prior to the in-person interview. The offer was generous and in line with what I expected from a leadership position within this size organization.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at ADT Security Services in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had a detailed phone and in person interview, seemed very assuring at that point but no response/feedback (yes, Maybe, No) for a 3 weeks which is very frustrating to the interviewer. And i guess the feedback should not take more than a few days so that the applicant can move forward.

    Residential Sales Representative Interview

    Interview Details

    Quick, easy and they will hire you if you can talk, breathe and are willing to drive to the not so pleasant parts of town. Starts with a call, get an interview, be willing to work the hours and you've got a good chance to get hired. It all depends on their numbers and how many people they need to hire because they are always turning over the staff weeding out the C, D and F players

    Small Business Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ADT Security Services in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied and was contacted by a recruiter who was just awesome throughout the whole process.

    Over a two week period there was a phone interview, a face to face with my eventual Sales Manager and a background check and drug screen.

    The training process starts once you accept the job and resume work. There's training pay of $1650 for the first month and it gets less each month after that. This isn't a problem if you've begun to get the hang of working Salesforce and your territory for useful leads & referrals. If not however...

    ...you will have failed the unspoken last part of the interview process.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    There's no negotiation. ADT pays a training salary for four months and benefits (Health, 401K etc) are better than average. After that, you make uncapped commission pay. Your work "negotiates" your pay but the Compensation Plan is pretty awesome. About 25% of the sales reps make six figures. I'm still working my way there.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at ADT Security Services in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, I had 5 interviews spread over 4 months. It was a v e r y slow process. I had a great recruiter to work with and in the initial interview I was told that the need was imediate. During my first phone interview with the hiring manager he just blew me off, when it was rescheduled by the recruiter the hiring manager was 45 mins late to the call. I could see right away that I possessed some but not all of the traits he was looking for. We had a in person interview that was one third the time he asked me to allot for our meeting and did not touch on the things he stated were critical to success at ADT. Many unreturned calls and emails latter, I understand that they may be going forward with an internal candidate

    This interview was full of lies about the job. A lot of what was discussed never came true and some of what you were expected to do was never discussed. Take lots of notes. Make sure you understand it all.
