Sales Representative Interview

Application Details

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

Interview Details

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 Details
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.

    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.....

    Interview Details

    I got an unexpected phone call, and had the interview on the spot. They basically wanted to tknow if you have no other options, and how desperate youd be to take the position. When I mentioned I have other interviews already lined up, and that I was not really that interested in the position, we said our goodbyes.

    Reasons for Declining

    Did not like their business model.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at ADT Security Services in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    They will hire anyone who can fog a mirror.
    90% employee turnover - most quit when the salary ends after 4 months

    Interview Questions
    • How about you ask them, "realistically, how many miles will I put on my car per day?"
      And what percentage of business must be generated by me?
      How many company leads will I get per week?
        Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Because I know the reps are putting 35k miles/yr on their cars.
    I know 95% of the sales must be self-generated.
    It's a 6 day work week, and I have a life outside any job.
    This isn't a work opportunity; it's a slave trade.

    Sounds like you can make good money, you cannot. if they do not want you too. Sounds like you will get leads , you will at first. They they pull them away for the new people and tell you it is because you are doing something wrong or they do not like your attitude.
