    Small Business Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Des Moines, IA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Des Moines, IA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at ADT Security Services in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    interviewing consisted of a great phone interview with tips from their recruiter who was very professional and made it sound like i should expect nothing but professionism in the interview with the hiring manager. I come in and he must have been stressed i heard him cussing about 7 or 8 times in his discription of what he expects from his employees he didn't go into detail about the position but rather that he expected 100 calls a day (doable) and that there only .5 leads given to the reps and find they are on there own if they don't produce he fires them. wow I had a manager like that in the past i determined right away i would not want to work for him and his bully like management and based on the other descriptions of reviews for this company it sounds like they put any blowhard in management he was definately full of himself and even asked me if i thougth he was being a jerk rather than offend him i firmly replyed he was being blunt. i immediately called back the recruiter filling in for mine and told her that was the worst interview i have ever had and that i was taken aback by his terminology. wow just wow.

    They use a survival of the fittest training program to weed out the unfit. If you pass it then you get paid for it. This technique comes from Landmark Education. They require you to sell security systems to your family as well as have one too. They have sales goals and if you don't meet them your fired. After awhile you work there then you can work a different position at another franchise store. During training you do cold door to door sales with a supervisor.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at ADT Security Services in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Initial interview was over the phone with a corporate recruiter. She was very nice, personable and seemed eager to push the process along. It took the hiring manager almost 2 weeks to confirm the local face to face. During the two and a half hour face to face interview, the hiring manager spoke for approximately two hours and twenty four minutes - mostly about himself... He did not offer me the job, which is well enough. I couldn't imagine reporting to him. I recently learned he was demoted... I'm rating the interview as difficult, because the interviewer was difficult to listen to.
