    Interview

    Its very lengthy and very simple process. As long as you have your ducks in a row and have a solid plan/goal in mind you have a good chance at being hired.

    Negotiation

    There wasn't one

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ADT Security Services.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by a recruiter who saw my resume online. Went through a typical process of going over my resume, basic overview of the job, questions about my work experience and comfort with the sales process, etc. She then scheduled a phone interview for me with the area sales manager, who went through a very similar process over the phone. Then we met in person. After that, the job was offered to me.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't remember any difficult or unexpected questions. If you are a sales rep and have been on any interviews lately, be prepared for typical questions: Tell me about a difficult situation at work and how you handled it. What are 3 qualities you feel would be important for this position, and why? What would previous employees and coworkers say are your strengths and weaknesses and would you agree with them? Tell me about a time you were given advice or correction by a manager and how did you handle it? Tell me about how you handle stressful situations at work.... That sort of thing.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. This is a commission only job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at ADT Security Services.

    Interview

    Lots of exaggeration of training and assistance in the interview. The interviewer really lied about the amount of business the company would be drawing in to get the sales staff appointments we could build on to get referrals.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    It's a commission only position, with very little training or support. What advice would I give? Don't waste your time with a company that doesn't care the least about its employees or current customers.

    Interview

    The first interview lasted an hour. We went over relevant sales experience. Did a couple scenarios that will be a part of the sales process.

    Upon second interview they went into detail about the pay and benefits. Due to my lack of home sales, they were hesitant to hire me. The interviewer asked for a business plan on how I would create self-generated leads within first 3 months. I emailed him the plan but I never received a response until I saw the same job posting back up on the company website

    Interview Questions

    • How to close a sale. Especially hard if you dont have in home sales experience.   Answer Question
