Bad place to work at

The managers lie during the job training about the warranty of the products being sold. They also lie about the way the contract works. The company vans are dirty. I sold a system for $250 but I only got $50 for my pay. Basically in training they tell you of a customer is not fully convinced to get the security system, you can waiver off and cancel any commission fees. (Which is normally $200) However if they get the system and commission is canceled. The company takes that $200 out of your paycheck. So they don't even pay workers fairly. Overall this company is a bad place to work at and I strongly recommend that people do not apply to work here.

Dishonest company

-They do not tell you that if the installation fee is waivered, that money goes out of your commission -The number of people who quit is high (75% plus)-Company vans are not clean (full of crumbs and other stuff)-You really only start working at around 5pm cause that is when people come home

Dissapointing

The salary is not true, the place of work is like a warehouse and you do not actually start working until like 4, you will lose money at this job. Company vans are not clean

Perfect job for experience but it is not for everyone

You usually start as a door-to-door salesman, and it is a great experience but as I mentioned it is not for everyone. If you are someone who does not care about self development and investing in yourself, do not even apply! Realize that you might not make any money in your first month and there is no success if you don’t stay consistent and educate yourself with the tools AG provides you. This job is definitely not for people who are just trying to make couple more bucks than working in tim hortons. Only con is you will work in rough weather conditions but having fun is always a part of this company.

Multi-approach job!

Absolutely love it! Salary, you get paid for what you put into it. But they provide you with all the daily training, reading and roleplaying to make you a top rep. Started in the Toronto office and now in Alberta for the summer sales program. The sales team feels like family. The managers push you to be the best in all areas of your life, not just in sales for them. I find the job has really changed the way I interact with everyone in my life for the better, I find I see huge improvements in other areas of my life that have been created from ADT. It's scary in the beginning, but it's so rewarding and the money is ridiculously good once you get the hang of it. Can't expect the big bucks on day 1, compound interest.

Points positifs

Supportive team, Money, Self-improvement in many areas of life

Points négatifs

knocking outside in all weather. Hard in the beginning because it's scary when it's new

Good opportunity to learn sales and work as a team

This job at ADT is helping me with my communication skills and the ability to think on my feet. It is very collaborative with team meetings to practice and discuss scenarios while talking on the phone and having multiple points of view really helps. We each have our own style of talking to people and we find what works best for us. Superiors are available to help 24/7 with any problem.

Points positifs

Very collaborative and teaches communication skills

Points négatifs

Nothing

Good place to work

Authorized dealer for ADT by Telus, genuinely good products at reasonable prices. Management is helpful and nice co-workers. Office is well connected by public transit. You can move up the ladder if you work hard. Not much micro-management.

Not a good place to work

- False hope at excelling into different positions - Unsavory Practices - Unscrupulous Employer/Owner While Alarm Guard had lots of nice people working for the company, the overall atmosphere, including but not limited to, false promises, lack of morality and unsavory practices made it a very difficult place to excel/enjoy.

Points positifs

Majority of employees very personable

Points négatifs

Lots of lies, Unsavory practices

Minimum wage but they want bilingual staff

Horrible place to work. Minimum wage for bilingual staff. Hours kept changing. No respect of any kind. Need a revolving door at the entrance because people leave so soon after they start.

Customer Service

Some staff were very nice, but higher up was terrible. Person who works below the owner yells and demoralizes employees. Treat and talks to them like they’re scum not even worth being respected. They talk poorly about clients and other staff. Embarrassing. When Labor Board calls, they get sent to a voicemail that is full that never gets checked. No benefits. Poor pay. A sham altogether.

Dishonesty and Hypocrisy

I took this D2D role as a recent university graduate with an objective to enhance my people's skills. Due to my introverted nature, I chose to step out of my comfort zone by meeting strangers. It was a good experience in this sense and there were encouraging and supporting managers. It can be fun if you enjoy the work. Most sales reps last at most for a week or two. The payment was purely commission-based and only when a contract is signed and a security system is successfully installed in the customer's house. But there is ABSOLUTELY no communication from the managers and administration regarding canceled installations. I find out on payday. The managers keep stressing the fact that they cannot tolerate dishonesty towards the customers, yet they are betraying the trust of employees. The whole company takes advantage of young graduates and present them with false hopes. I get that income is uncapped but there are several external factors as well such as cold climate, and the fact that the manager kept procrastinating on printing my ID Badge. These are just some of my awful experiences. There is much more.

Could be fun if you enjoy the work

They get you in for an interview and not really tell you it's actually a door-to-door job. Staffs are extremely friendly but I am certain that 90% of the sales reps are not happy there. You start off with a base salary and quickly learn that you will be converted to commission only. Imagine knocking on 100 strangers doors daily and hoping they would buy a 3 year contract to make a living. This is a fine starting point if you want to learn a few things about sales but unfortunately nothing long term.

Prodcutive fun workplace and great experience

Alarm Guard provides on the job training not only on its products but also on how to make sales in general and address people's wants and needs to capitalize on them. Possiblity of growth within the company from sales rep to team leader and possibly branch manager if you make sales and show exceptional skills.
