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

I worked at APX Alarm full-time (more than 5 years)

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.

    An ok summer job if you land on a talented team, otherwise pack up and head home.

    I worked at APX Alarm full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Get to work with your hands. Solve different problems. Just a summer job.

    Cons

    Long hours. Pay is dependent on Sales team performance, something you have no control over. My manager frequently favored his brother and would pass him work more frequently other team members. He also kept my back-end check. My W-2 form was filed incorrectly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rotation lists can be biased. I was the only non-Mormon on my team and was always placed last on the list every day despite relatively high-quality and quick work.
