Good Money to be in Sales, as long as installation doesn't screw you up

I have been working at ADT Security Services full-time for less than a year

Pros

Self driven, good commissions, independent, good manager

Cons

Stress, games, installation makes errors causing cancelled sales, bad manager. There is no in between, you either sell or you suck, Vehicle allowance too low

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit blanket management style. It brings morale down.

    Pros

    The hiring process was fairly quick, it took about two weeks to get started from the time I filled the application out online. I was happy to be receiving a check. The paid training wasn't a huge amount, but it put a dent in some bills.

    Cons

    I wasn't there long enough to develop any cons. Another opportunity that wasn't commision based opened up and I took that opportunity.

    I worked at ADT Security Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    *Ipad provided, phone allowance, car allowance
    *"model sales call" can help you in general professionally
    *Stable company controls the market

    Cons

    *Terrible leads when cold calling(100 calls expected daily) potential customers where either already customers, angry about previous service, or WRONG NUMBER. Out of 100 calls you might get 2 appointments and 1 of those was either a no show or a cancel.
    *Management does not care that leads are poor they just want you to call, no attempts made to improve the quality of leads
    *Lots of driving- 30-50 miles for one appointment was normal
    *Lots of cancelled appointments that were not discovered until you are sitting in front of the customers home.
    *Multiple software systems(3-4) to navigate prior to sales calls
    *50-100 cold call door knocks expected daily
    *After first 3 months 100% commission
    *Outside of the 1 week corporate training, training by manager is spotty at best. To be honest it depends on the manager.
    *VERY HIGH TURNOVER
