Great training for life skills, requiring a lot of self motivation and unsupervised hard work.

Pros

100% commission, so it's possible to make a great deal of money. This job allows you to manage yourself and determine your own success. It's possible to earn enough during the summer to support yourself during the school year. Most sales reps get to take 8 months off every year.

Cons

Saturday is the longest day, usually about 12 hours. In order to do well, you really need to commit to working every single day (except Sundays) for about 4 months, without taking any vacation. Because it's 100% commission, it is possible to work hard all week and not earn anything, although that was a very rare thing in most offices.

    Alright company in most areas, a little sketchy on the sales process though

    Pros

    Good benefits, fun coworkers, free lunch, a nice rec room, and it pays pretty well. If you just need a job this one is pretty good.

    Cons

    Lots of shady corporate practices while I worked there, shifting managers around too often to have real leadership. Sales process is legal but doesn't feel honest anyway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that people are more than cogs in your machine to make money.

    Good money, but a lot of wasted time.

    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.
