    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at ADT Security Services.

    Interview

    Was initially contacted by a recruiter. Ran through some initial screening questions over the phone before being scheduled to meet with a sales manager. Sales Manager described position in detail, pointing out it is not for the weak at heart; requires relentless hard work, positive attitude, long hours to accommodate homeowners' schedule.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at ADT Security Services (Tulsa, OK) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a corporate head hunter for this interview. The interview lasted about an hour and was pretty informal. The place has an essence of fraternity type behavior and humor. I was offered the position but requested time to consider what I had just been told. I wrote an email to the hiring manager requesting more information. 92% National Turnover for this position. Only 8% stay in this position. There is a reason instead of responding to simple questions the manager revoked the offer. Do your homework! This is not a real job. 60+ hours a week knocking on random doors at an average income for a sales rep is around $13.25 an hour. Yes there are some benefits but there are way better options out there. KCCO!

    Reasons for Declining

    I wrote a questionnaire to the manager. He didn't want to take the time to explain company policy. My politely and professionally worded questions would force him to divulge a lot of negative aspects of the position. He would rather not waste his time to explain or help as his answers would make most professionals run for their life.

    Interview

    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

    Interview

    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.

    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
