    I worked at ADS Security full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fair and easy to understand commission plan. Customer focused. Extensive training.

    Cons

    This is a 100% commissioned job. ADS pays a good training allowance but expects you to quickly grow your sales to replace the base with commission. They don't always make this clear.

    Pros

    Big company with a small company feel. They know your name and treat you right.

    Cons

    In sales there could be a few things done to benefit the commission process better. Technicians have too much control over the jobs that control how much we get paid.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work in making ADS Security the leader in the security world.

    I have been working at ADS Security full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    ADS Security is an amazing company. Some of the perks...small company so if there are concerns they can be addressed and/or resolved quickly, after the sale service to customers is excellent, customers get to speak with a human if they need customer service or support, the CEO comes to the branch twice if not more per year and knows everyone’s name, ability to win trips, work from mobile office (car) the majority of...

    Cons

    Some cons are we’re easily mistaken for our big competitor, ADS doesn’t advertise so it’s more difficult to start in sales in a new territory, a Sales Rep has to be extremely self motivated, if not, this is not the job for you, we’re not as competitively priced on the residential side but working to get there.

    I have been working at ADS Security full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing culture surrounded by a cool and fun environment. Starting as a sales you are compensated well for the task that is required. i would recommend this job to someone that is good at creating there own leads and able to work on your own.

    Cons

    do not give you very many leads at all, the company does not believe in advertising so they lack lead generation. If you are new to the area, do not have a big client base or have connections in your area, you must adapt quickly, or you will fail. They make it difficult for new guys to make more then there base salary.

    Advice to Management

    Build a 90 day plan for new sales reps, create a schedule of house accounts, inactive accounts, and new sold homes in the area that they can map out, and execute on a daily basis! This will mold a daily schedule that they can fallow and ultimately know what needs to be done every single day to be successful ADS. New sales reps need much more guidance, turnover would much less if more investment was put into sales reps....

    Pros

    A very flexible company which offers above average pay and a solid support network when needed. Benefits, incentives and perks are a definite plus with ADS. Promotion to higher positions exist as long as the individual is willing to work for it and show their worth.

    Cons

    None, so far. I have been with the company for a year and all is well.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Freedom and fun - not micro managed. As long as you a producing you are good to go! Sales reps have the backing of a top notch company, that's moving forward in the security world.

    Cons

    Not the cheapest price security systems, however you pay for what you get.
