    Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at ADT Security Services in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, I had 5 interviews spread over 4 months. It was a v e r y slow process. I had a great recruiter to work with and in the initial interview I was told that the need was imediate. During my first phone interview with the hiring manager he just blew me off, when it was rescheduled by the recruiter the hiring manager was 45 mins late to the call. I could see right away that I possessed some but not all of the traits he was looking for. We had a in person interview that was one third the time he asked me to allot for our meeting and did not touch on the things he stated were critical to success at ADT. Many unreturned calls and emails latter, I understand that they may be going forward with an internal candidate

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at ADT Security Services in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was initially contacted by a recruiter that saw my resume online. She spoke/interviewed me over the phone. She then set up an interview with the manager in the local office. Was offered job on the spot.

    You are as good as your last sale. It doesn't matter if you blew it out the water the day before - if you don't make a sale the next day then you are worthless to them. Your manager will only assist you if it benefits them in the end. Don't expect any help. You also have to work 10x harder to get paid than you do for a sale. I'm still waiting for over $800 in pay that is owed to me without help from my manager.

    Interview Questions
    • Just google basic interview questions and those are the ones you will be asked.   Answer Question
    • If you can breathe, move, and talk you will receive the job as long as you pass the background check. Experience doesn't matter.   Answer Question

    Security Specialist- Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ADT Security Services in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I responded to an Ad on Craigslist while looking to change careers. I had formerly been in the service industry for 9 years. I was nervous about seeking out other career opportunities due to having very limited experience and with only some college.

    My interview was very quick, and not stressful at all.

    I was then placed into the pre-screening process for the position (drug/background). Two weeks later I was contacted to attend orientation.

    I have sense been promoted first to a sales manager, and then to the Branch Trainer, and now I have been relocated with the company.

    Interview Questions
    • Due to it being a group interview, there were not a lot of questions asked of us. Due to the position being commission based.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Everything was great besides they never called when they said they will. Person that interviewed me said I will hear from them in 7-10 business day and they will probably make me an offer. I tried contacting them after two weeks and left a voicemail with HR person but never heard back. Very disappointing

    Residential Sales Representative Interview

    Interview Details

    Quick, easy and they will hire you if you can talk, breathe and are willing to drive to the not so pleasant parts of town. Starts with a call, get an interview, be willing to work the hours and you've got a good chance to get hired. It all depends on their numbers and how many people they need to hire because they are always turning over the staff weeding out the C, D and F players
