Adt provides the opportunity to become successful financially, but it is very difficult.

Current Employee - Sales Representative
Current Employee - Sales Representative

I have been working at ADT Security Services full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Lots of freedom
Brief training salary
Decent product training
Continuous sales support.
Small auto allowance
Adt is a Nationwide company so you can transfer just about anywhere you want ( if your at quota )

Cons

Adt has a 100% commission based salary structure. This can be good and bad. Commission only jobs can be lucrative if the individual is motivated and a good salesman. If you consider yourself to be just average at selling you'll probably fall in the the 95% turnover category. Most sales jobs have high turnovers, but ADT by far , has the highest I ever seen or heard of. The average tenure at the company is about three to four months. ( This is when the training pay stops) . ADT offers no PTO for the sales team! So if you want to take off for a week or two , you don't get paid. In order to make 70-80 k you must work about 60-70 hrs per week. Not a great work / family balance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to show a little more appreciation for front line sales reps.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay if you are self motivated.

    Cons

    More training and nurturing from the company itself, not just the sales managers would be great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My manager's great, but a lot of other managers I haven't heard many great things about.

    I worked at ADT Security Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    If u are looking for a very flexible job and have side activities, this may be for you. It has great benefits and good people to work with.

    Cons

    The corporate compensation is commission and changes based on the various items you sell. The gas and phone money they give don't cover current phone and fuel cost. The techs don't care whether your jobs gets done or not and you constantly get charge backs. It's a big head ache.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more training and fix the way you compensate your employees.
