Pros

APX has been a good job while going through school. They have been very flexible in giving time off and working with my school schedule. Management has been good and seem to be concerned about my needs. I have also made many friends while I have worked there. It is a good place to meet other students.

Cons

One of the downsides to APX is that they are sales oriented company. This can be good and bad. Their employment is good because they have a strong sales force. The downside is that it is more difficult to get recognized if you are not in sales.

Advice to Management

Management should try to do a better job of compensating all employees more evenly.

    I worked at APX Alarm full-time (Less than a 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 Management

    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.


  2. "Door to door sales with a modern kick"
