I worked at APX Alarm

Pros

See another part of the country for a couple months. They never faulted on paying me. and the compensation was great. The system was easy to install.

Cons

Its a time consuming work. A lot of sitting around. Its not a resume builder. You might have to fight for some money but if your right, they will pay you. Not to many vacation days and there aren't any benefits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They need to get more educated leaders in the middle management positions. Strive for more honesty in the company with their saleman.

    Pros

    Pure meritocracy, you are payed 100% according to what you deserve. Only 4 months of work but during those 4 months a person can make multiple times what he or she would otherwise make in a year, especially if still in school full time. Even 10 or 20 times more. The sky is the limit if you are good at it and work hard.

    Cons

    It's hard work, gives up most normal "fun" a college summer experiences for 4 difficult months of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep innovating

    I have been working at APX Alarm

    Pros

    Great income potential. It is straight commission so you must be able to handle that, but the income opportunities are amazing. You work for 4 months per year and can make $0, or i have seen people make over $150,000 in their own commissions not including any management overrides.

    Cons

    Some sales managers aren't prepared for the job. APX will allow anyone who has proven themselves as a salesman and can recruit a team of salesman to be a sales manager. Not all good salesman and recruiters make good sales managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need more management training. They are all great salesman or they wouldn't have the position.
