    I worked at Protection 1 full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people! From upper management, technicians to office personnel they have nothing but the best. The company always made me feel like family.

    Cons

    Things quickly changed when a large security firm was purchased. P1 name was then changed and the family atmosphere was drastically changed.

    Commercial Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norwood, MA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Protection 1 (Norwood, MA (US)) in September 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was a meeting, then 2 phone screens then another meeting where the 2 managers were very informative and helpful explaining the position in detail and addressing all of my concerns. They made me an offer and after careful consideration the base salary offered was just way to low.

    Reasons for Declining

    The base salary was to low, commission structure is very confusing with too many layers.
