What do you like best about working at ADT Security Services? Are there any great perks or special treats for employees?
Salary: No. But you do get training wages for a while. They are not substantial though
Bonuses: Not really. You can get get "kickers" for exceeding goal on a monthly basis. If you're a rock star and can do it twelve months in a row, it amounts to about $4800/yr.
Benefits: Yes. They are reasonably good and kick in pretty quickly if you want them. The cost of the benefits is the problem. While not overly expensive, your commissions are not huge either, so they'll put a dent in your pay check.
Travel Requirements: Are Absurd. Unless you live in a city and can travel by foot to your locales, you'll put over 30K/year on your car for this job. Bear in mind you do not get reimbursed for mileage... This is one of the worst aspects of this job.
The only real perk is you can kind of set your own schedule. Having said that, management will ride you like a beaten dog for better numbers all the time, so unless you can put in perspective, you'll feel like you should be working 60+ hour weeks. I could go on, but there are really no good reasons to work here. I took this job and worked VERY hard for over 12 months hoping it would be a solid source of income and since then have actually taken another job and am doing this on the side b/c the income is so poor and unpaid expenses are so high.
I would not suggest working here in a sales format to anyone.
