Vivint

Smart home security sales representative

May 2019 • Tampa, FL

What I liked

I was paid weekly based only on how much you sold. The pay was commissions based making anywhere from 300 to 1000 dollars per sale and an unlimited amount of sales per day. The travel was free. We were refunded the money spent on stay. You form bonds with coworkers. You learn how to invest. You learn how to negotiate. You learn your limits and how to grow past them.

What I wish was different

It will be annoying to do things on your own if you don’t bring a car.

Advice

It will change your perspective on life. When I came to USF in 2018, I had no form of income. Vivint provided the necessary training, tools, and support to succeed in sales and understanding yourself on a more in-depth level. They will teach you how to understand a situation and move past obstacles such as objections and excuses. They will hire anyone willing to work and put in the effort to make some sales even if it means a couple teers. I no longer need to work a nine to five work schedule as Vivint can pay ten thousand to five hundred thousand within 4 months of work compared to an adult making forty thousand annually spending four times the amount of hours. Vivint can direct someone to take control of their lives within a matter of weeks or months if they desire to grow as a person.

Account Manager (Electronic and Computer Hardware)

July 2019 • Lindon, UT

What I liked

The hours are pretty flexible and it helped me build computer skills.

What I wish was different

I wish they would have been more informative about what kind of call we receive. There is a lot more account troubleshooting than what was described.

Advice

If you don't mind taking inbound calls, the job is just fine. It helps you build communication skills when you have to de-escalate someone because of something that happened with their security.

What I liked

I loved that day in and day out not only was i learning the skill of sales, which i believe is essential and crucial in any field you go into, i was being pushed out of my comfort zone and being shaped and stretched. It wasn't easy, but i did it with 100% effort and walked away with new valuable skills that i have recognized help me day in and day out now.
