    Collector Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jacksonville, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Jacksonville, FL
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Applied online on 2/11/14. Received a call on 2/26 for a phone interview. Was told if I was selected they would call me for an actual interview. Got the call for the interview on 3/4 and went in for a one on one interview with a lady from HR on 3/6. I totally botched the whole interview because I was so nervous. The last time I sat down for an actual interview was in 2000. Lol. So I'm really not too optimistic about the job offer. She asked your normal behavioral questions. The whole interview took less than 10 minutes to complete. I would be really surprised if I do get the offer since the interview, in my eyes, didn't go so well. But I'll keep you guys posted either way.

    Interview Questions
    • How important is attendance to you?

      Tell me about a time you had to deal with an irate customer and what steps you took to resolve it.

      Why should we hire you for this position?

      There was another one but I don't quite remember how she worded it.

      I was also asked why I left my previous job.

    Interview Details

    The sale's position is pretty much a meat market, if you arrive dressed nicely and are polite, you will probably go home with a new job. Keep in mind, its a security job with a govt lic. So you will be drug tested, and required to get a livescan.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at ADT Security Services.

    Interview Details

    Good process. It's just as important that you are interested in ADT as ADT is interested in you, so good company and job information is provided. An offer is never made on the first interview. Rather, homework is given and then based on your response to that homework and your desire to continue on to employment, you are then offered a position. The start dates are usually within a week of the last interview.

    Interview Questions
    • How do you handle a customer's objection and how does it make you feel?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. 100% commission.

    Anonymous Employee in Hollis, NH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ADT Security Services.

    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.....
