I applied for a Customer Relation/Customer Service position and at the end I found out that it is only a Sales position. They also told me that I will be getting paid at least $600.00 if I show up everyday. It was certainly not true. I found out the following Monday, the day I quit, that it is strictly a door-to-door sales position and I would be paid only commission. If I made a made a sale, I would be paid a commission, Without a sale, there was no pay at all.
I was not told that this was a door-to-door sales position.
They beat around the bush and in the end it's a SALES POSITION
SALES PERSON (Former Employee) – MELBOURNE,FL – July 14, 2015
I applied for a customer service position and got hired. They completely wasted my time. YOU WILL NOT GET PAIN 600$-1000$ A WEEK. AND YOU CERTAINLY WILL NOT GET PAID TRAINING!
THIS IS A SALES POSITION AND YOU HAVE TO SELL THEIR PRODUCT TO MAKE MONEY.
IT IS BASED ON COMMISSION ONLY!!!!
THEY BEAT AROUND THE BUSH HOPING THAT YOU ARE STUPID ENOUGH TO SICK AROUND THROUGH THE TRAINING PROCESS. AND THEY WILL TRY AND TRICK YOU TO STAY WITH THEM.
I AM EXTREMELY UPSET THAT THEY WASTED MY VERY VERY PRECIOUS TIME, WITH FALSE PROMISES.
Once again, they trick you into believing this will be a good paying job or "career" as they'd like to call it. i APPLIED TO BE A CUSTOMER SERVICE REP, THAT IS TO WORK AT A CALL CENTER MAKING AN HOURLY WAGE!
TRAINING IS 11AM-9PM MONDAY-SATURDAY.
HOW WILL ANYONE TRAINING MAKE COMMISSION IF THEY ARE TRAINING!?
i enjoyed the work as well as staff and co-workers
phone operator (Former Employee) – Rossville, GA – December 3, 2014
our goal for each day is to get at least 8 transfers. In the nine months that I worked at safe streets I received fronter of the week and month on several times. I enjoyed working with the staff co-workers
Data Entry Agent/ ADT (Former Employee) – Garner, NC – September 2, 2014
there is nothing more good to say about safe streets. they always change up things and none of the head people in the departments end up knowing about it. so everyone gets stuck and confused. they don't give you any pay at all. when you start or through out the time that you've worked there.
Typical day working with new hires and managers in the field. We hired for 28 states including the Washington DC area. Learned how to implement policies and procedures. Hardest part of job was researching states for licensing.
A great company selling a great product. Minor changes in company has made it a bit less enjoyable.
Sales And Sales Management (Current Employee) – Cranberry, PA – February 23, 2014
I travel through a portion of 3 states selling and managing sales reps in the security industry. I may have up to 3 sales appointments per day that are scheduled at 8 AM, 12 noon and 5 PM. We do work 6 days a week. While in these areas, we do seek new clients as well if time allows. There is not a hard or difficult part of the job. At times the driving becomes an issue. I drive about 50,000 miles per year. The most enjoyable part of the job is protecting people or businesses that were a victim of a crime.
no set hours that leaves you time to get personal issues done.
Administrative Assistant / Permitting Coordinator (Former Employee) – Mount Vernon, NY – February 3, 2014
Enjoyed working there was always something to do. They were many ways to get assitances from higher manager if needed.Co workers some were great team players and I was scare at first hen offered the permit coordinator position since I was hired as an administrative assitant but nothing is impossible I rapidly gain experience throughout the months of holding that position that were very benifical to the company.
caring and understanding
need to closely choose good worker during hiring process
Relocations Agent (Former Employee) – Elmwood Park, NJ – January 7, 2014
My job was to relocate customers that were moving from one location to another, answer Billing questions, resolve crisis with customers and technician, inform customer of penalty for early termination of contract, providing emails with gathered research to my Manager so she could effectively make decisions on releasing customers with no penalty. There is a very high call volume so constantly on the phone.
Easy going place to work, but management needs some training.
Installation Technician (Former Employee) – Elk Grove Village, IL – April 11, 2013
I usually worked about 2 installs a day. But you could have up to as many as 3/day. The installs weren't normally near your house. So driving was a big factor. The gas compensation wasn't adequate to what was promised. Also, just recently you were basically On-Call for same day installs. I wasn't a fan of that.
