I have been working at Brink's Home Security

Pros

Great company with an awesome reputation for service. Great benefits to employees.

Cons

Hard to make a decent living working at Brinks. Compensation is inadequate and low compared to similar sales positions. Not enough qualified leads.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To reverse the current high turnover of sales people you should take a hard look at the compensation offered to your sales consultants. I have been here for almost 3 years and still don't even make 30K and I am one of the top sales consultants in my branch. That is sad!

    I have been working at Brink's Home Security

    Pros

    Great benefits package including medical, dental, 401k, paid vacation, etc.
    Generally nice team members and office staff.
    Good customer service.

    Cons

    Crazy schedule for sales consultants. You have 6pm or 7pm appointments at least 3 nights a week, saturday appointments until 2 or 3pm, and work trade shows on average once a month which can include sundays. There is a lot of down time during the day which some may view as a positive bc. you can get errands run, but remember you are back on the road for an evening appointment and can get home anywhere from 8pm to 10pm. Micromanaged and must be in the office every morning if you are not hitting the numbers. No base salary, there is a draw versus commissions but if you are just making the draw you will not be happy with your pay check at all, and more than likely you will not be employed for long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    offer base salary after one year of tenure vs. a draw.
