    Former Employee - Security Sales Representative in Bowling Green, KY

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

    Pros

    The company was honest & up-front with me about the payscale. The harder you work, the more you get paid and it is nice to be able to go out and spend a summer with your best buds.

    Cons

    100% commission can be difficult to maintain as a lifestyle, 60 hour weeks can be brutal at times :-) For my wife and I it was too much and eventually caught up with us. The pay is super high but the lifestyle is imbalanced during the summer months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that each sales team has enough experienced managers to ensure a successful summer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ditch P1 as soon as you're able and build this again. Your employees that have been grandfathered in to P1 are miserable there.

    Pros

    Lucrative opportunity; invaluable experience in sales and interpersonal communication; supportive and motivating culture; competitive incentives; flexible hours; on-the-job training.

    Cons

    Although Pinnacle Security offers a rewarding work experience, it expects dedication and rigorous work from it's employees. The nature of the work requires a certain level of self-motivation and interpersonal skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a rookie sales rep, I appreciated the accessibility of superiors throughout the corporate chain of command.

    Pros

    The back office people are great and very good at what they do. They provide excellent service. A fun place to work.

    Cons

    The sales people are arrogant and self absorbed. In general, they have a God complex and think they are all-powerful. Some go to any unethical means to make a sale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Punish and even fire the sales people who are giving you a bad name. Just because they make you money doesn't mean they are good employees. They should be both ethical and good sales people.

    I have been working at Pinnacle Security

    Pros

    You make good money and you meet good people while traveling around the united states. The compensation and perks make the trip away from home well worth it.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that I have to leave my family and friends for six month periods.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management could possibly do a better job keeping their employees up to date and informed on what to expect and what the business plan is and where the company wants to go.
