Alder Salesman Review

Life changer

I suffered every single day doing this job. Its probably the toughest job I will ever do in my life. I decided to stick with it and put in everything I had. This job changed my life. It made me realize that im capable of much more than I thought. It gave me a work ethic, changed my mindset. And lastly, it gave me the best sales experience I could have in my early career. There is NO better experience in your early 20´s than doing door to door sales. If you want to take it to the next level go to Alder.

Terrible management

Upper management will try their hardest to get rid of you once you reach a certain salary threshold. They don’t want you to take your paid time off in the manner it’s intended for and expect you to make up your appointments if you do take time off. Turnover is ridiculously high because of management. Their equipment is subpar to other alarm companies.

Great company

Fun place to work as long as you work hard you control your paycheck. A lot of sales driven culture. They help with day to day life in general and do care about your well being

Hardworking yet very rewarding environment

We would start each work day at 12 PM with a meeting about the plans for the day. After this we would leave to the area we would be knocking in that day. From 2PM till dark we would be knocking on doors and working in peoples homes helping them see the value in a security system. The hardest part about this job, was the physical, mental, and emotional strength it took, to keep working to find that one yes, even if it meant hearing a hundred no's.


Good pay


No breaks
