Pros

Very good management from upper to office , good teamwork,interesting and motivating training, fun work atmosphere (in my office anyway), get to travel during the summer and see different states, good compensation for time put in, allows you to go to school during "off season", ability to make more money in 4 months than in a whole year without much education required you just have to work hard

Cons

-since you are a contract/commissioned employee, no real benefits
-pretty intense work 6/days a week, 10 hour days during the hot summer months
- satisfying work atmosphere could depend on your manager/co workers

Advice to Management

Keep treating your employees well, keep having great customer service and making sure the reps are trained properly w/ an emphasis on integrity/honesty on the doors...APX is pretty much everything the company I came from wasn't, which is a good thing

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Nice cafeteria available to all the employees. Decent PTO available. Young demographic of employees to work with. Nice new building.

    Cons

    Promotions are often based on who knows who, not as much on performance or experience. You have to know somebody.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just go with what you need at the moment. Promote employees that will do a great job regardless of how long they will be with the company.

    Pros

    Free lunch
    Safety isn't too much of an issue

    Cons

    This company has all it's priorities screwed up, all they are interested in is showing off to to other alarm companies in the areas. They built a beautiful super expensive building with free lunch for it's employees but LAID off a bunch of people to pay for it and lowered it's sales rep's pay scales...really????

    Highly nepotistic when it comes to mobility. Very few openings are filled internally. Managers are under qualified and mean to their employees--probably due to lack of training.

    Very low wages compared to other employers in the area--even for Utah, APX can hardly retain entry level employees because of this.

    Benefits are mediocre, at best.

    Advice to Management

    Stop showing off and get your priorities straight.
