REGIONAL DIRECTOR OF SALES, Kansas City, MO - July 17, 2016
Safe Haven is a great place to learn basic sales. Their training is very good and the product sold is a good one. New training classes start almost every week with anywhere between 8-15 people in each class.
During training there are tons of incentives to boost the mediocre rate of 500 per week. In fact training is where I made the most money.
Turn over is extremely high and most people do not make it out of training or past the first couple weeks of the sales floor. This is due to not making goals or having a negative attitude. With this job you either have it or you don't. They are very good at coaching up, but in the end you have it or you don't.
In terms of pay you make 500 a week which is your guarantee. The commission is uncapped, but hard to get. To receive commission you have to meet either 2000 dollars in sales or some months 2500. The commission does not hit until the sale actually funds back to Safe Haven from ADT. So in theory you could meet the required sales to commission, but due to funding you still will not commission.
Most people that make it past the training and initial first weeks on the floor will not commission until the 4-6 month mark. If you make it past that mark than this job really starts to take off.
Management for the most part is amazing. They are really supportive and will coach you up. The only complaint I have, is that there is little to know HR presence. Employees are not trained in time off procedures, pay stub procedures, or entirely about the commission process. In my time there we even had a tornado warning and no one knew the emergency procedures.
If you have a stable job that pays well I would not leave it to go to Safe Haven. If you are looking at a place to start your professional career in Sales than Safe Haven is a good stepping stone.
