Very Easy Interview

Residential Security Consultant Interview

Residential Security Consultant
Phoenix, AZ

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Protection One.

Interview Details – Face to face interview with sales manager. He reviewed my experience with ADT. 'made LOTS of promises like, 'You're going to do great here... We've got so many leads we can barely keep up... One of my guys made 5 grand last month.' I had an advantage because of previous experience via U.S.A.F. and ADT.

Interview Question – There were no difficult questions. He asked me, 'Tell me about yourself....'   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation, each sale equals a certain dollar amount.
