ADT Security?

Totally OT....but does anyone here work for ADT or know someone that does? I'm talking about the sales rep job. Do they make good money? What are the goods & bads of the job?
Just curious, it's not for me, it's about a "friend".

I recall and ADP rep called me once in order to convince me to convince my aging mother (who used to use their services) to reinstate them. They got my number from her emergency 'call' list. This was the single most blatant and offensive instance of telephone whoring I've ever been witness to. I suggested that she engage in a self-pleasuring ritual and never call again.

No it's actually about this guy, but I think when he learned that I was an insurance agent, he was slightly intimidated so I was wondering if it was that bad or whatever he was thinking.

chillbabe, getting advise from us is like this:
http://poopiestain.com/155/Teeter_Totter_Flyer.html

But seriously, I don't think you will make big $$ in telephone sales unless you get risiduals but your best bet will be commercial accounts that will buy monitoring and even physical security services.
In any sales you need time to develop good leads and even longer to develop lasting relationships that you can bank on. In addition your product must be very dynamic in terms of new technology cycles and toys and of course you wil not be alone at carving that cake unless you have exclusivity over some products that are in demand.
Good luck
