    I worked at ADT Security Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked for ADT for over one year, I could not find one pro while working there. They have become a telemarketing company in which they want you to make blind phone calls daily instead of out working in the field.

    Cons

    Lack of equipment and product training. Quick start to train you on the ADT way of selling. Managers who want to hear from you after every sales call to see if and what you sold. Willing to give security systems away at no charge to make the "unit" sales, so the manager makes his quota/bonus, with out caring about the commission of the sales person.

    Advice to Management

    Equipment and system training. To much middle management.

    I worked at ADT Security Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the co-workers are nice to work with and get to know.

    Cons

    You are commission-only. They still demand you come into the office even while you are commission-only. If you do not generate 4 SGL's (Self-Generated Leads) per month, they will no longer provide appointments for you, and then you make no money, then they can let you go.
    Also, you are competing against Individual outside Contractors who sell the same product that corporate does. Except they can give more away for FREE and they get paid way more.

    E.g. a basic system from corporate may cost a customer $50-$99 (Wireless, 2 doors, 1 motion, 1 keypad, 1 remote) and the sales person can make $50-$75 commission;

    while with a Vendor it can be FREE-$99 (Wireless, 2 doors, 2 motions, 1 keypad... or they can work with the customer and rearrange the number of products) and the sales person will make $550+!!! Although vendors do not receive leads, you are competing with 'free' and more commission, and if you aren't getting your 4 sgl minimum per month you will not get leads with corporate either.

    Do not work with ADT at all, not even with vendors. Horrible company.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure commissions and stop competing with outside vendors.
