    I worked at Northstar Alarm as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity for development. A sumer with Northstar will look great on a resume and show that you are serious with a career in sales. Management is great about teaching different sales tactics and developing employees. The pay is good for those who work hard and succeed but nothing is handed to you.

    Cons

    Work hours can be long and the days can be a grind but good things come to those who preserver. Management should be more straight forward with employees. In there effort to stay extremely positive I felt that I was sometimes being mislead and lied too. Managements didn't refund our housing deductions like promised and I felt like they changed the rules because the company did not do as well as expected. At the end of the day this job will provide good experience and opportunities for development but they will intentionally mislead and lie to you.

    Advice to Management

    Be straight forward. It will cut down on employee turnover and allow for higher moral.
