Great Company Culture
Central US Field Service Analyst (Current Employee), Provo, UtMay 13, 2014
The company is great and the Culture is very attractive. They have a number of excellent benefits but the health Benefits are lacking. I loved working until a few management changes happened and no longer felt like anyone had job security.

Poor Choice As An Employer
Senior Security Specialist (Current Employee), Liberty Lake, WashingtonMay 6, 2014
Pros: monday thru friday work week
Cons: compensation, management, poor insurance, poor sales model
Your typical day here is consumed by empty promises, favoritism, lack of product training, unethical sales practices and truly incompetent management, not to mention the worst compensation in the industry. Albeit, the sales training is good (simply adopted and/or regurgitated sales tactics and theories found in popular sales books, internet videos etc.) – more... However, the young and tunnel-vision management does not have the necessary life experience(s) to run an organization on a human level. In other words, managing people is NOT their forte.
Prepare to be an expendable 'phone drone' who 'dials for dollars' all day. The install team is beyond incompetent compared to larger, more efficient and well know operations. This is very important, because you do not get paid until the install from your sale is complete. (Your sale to install ratio will be approx. 2/1 - or 50%).
I'd steer clear of this option for employment, in any department. – less

A place to help you develop as a salesman.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Corpus Christi, TXApril 28, 2014
Pros: high earning potential
Cons: its door to door 8-9 hours a day.
A typical work day in the life a a Vivint salesman... knock knock knock and knock some more! Selling for Vivint isn't for the faint of heart. Its hard work with lots of reward. I learned from my experience with Vivint that I am capable of so much more than minimum wage at a 9-5 job. Management teaches you how to succeed. The hardest part of this job – more... was all the jerks who would yell at you on the doors. Like I said this isn't for the faint of heart. – less

Fun but challenging
Installation Technician (Former Employee), Provo, UTApril 23, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: living in hotels for 3 months, only 1 day off per week
Typical day for us was from 1 in the afternoon until about 11 at night. It was hard work, but I loved it. The tech team I worked with were all friends of mine so it made it easier.
The hardest part of the job is having to live in hotels all summer, and only having one day off a week.
The pay also made it worth it for me. Ive never made as much money – more... as I did last summer. Especially if you hit your goal for the summer. – less

Vivint: A great place to work...?
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee), Provo, UTMarch 17, 2014
Pros: great products, wonderful company culture and fun atmosphere
Cons: compensation not in line with what recruiter said, poor management training, expensive health insurance.
While they have a wonderful company culture and benefits such as free lunch and onsite clinic, health benefits are ridiculously expensive, management is poorly trained, management opportunities are few and far between with the only opportunities coming very infrequently. Also, and maybe more importantly, I was deceived as to the amount of compensation – more... I could expect two times by their recruiters.

When first being hired I was told I would have the opportunity to make upwards of 80 to 100k a year, commensurate with past sales positions I've held. What they did NOT tell me was that it would be after months and months of essentially working for $8.00 an hour, and even then, there were only a few people making that amount and the opportunity to rise to that level was years away.

When transferring to their customer service department, I was told there were a lot of opportunities to rise to management because they were in a growth phase, and also you could make up to $14.00 an hour even as a phone agent. What I was not told by the recruiter is that the management positions were all low level team lead or supervisor positions. Management was very hard to reach and took years to reach, which is fine for someone coming out of college but a bad fit for someone my age who has over a decade of management experience in call center alone, 20 years management experience total.

Vivint overall was a bad fit for me, something the recruiters should have known in looking at my resume and seeing my past positions as call center and sales management. Seems like they were so busy looking to put butts in the seats they didn't take time to look at individuals and take their needs into account. – less

Good Company
Senior Security Specialist (Former Employee), Liberty Lake, WAMarch 10, 2014
Pros: free lunches, healthcare
Cons: inept management, two-faced company
Vivint can't seem to figure out quite what they want to be, nor what they want their associates to be. They are very hush-hush about their business decisions, and make sweeping changes without relaying any of the information to their employees. This causes unrest and people to feel generally nervous about their employment -- even if they're doing a – more... fine job.

The technical product that Vivint sells is spectacular, but their back end does not illicit trust. – less

• The hardest part of the job: No hourly pay, all commission, rejection at the door step, the weather

Fun environment, but work is taken very serious and competitive as it should.
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Albany, GAMarch 10, 2014
-Correlation meeting usually at 10am, go to lunch, and finally dropped into specific area to start prospecting and talking with people.
-Learned a lot about sales cycle, sales environment, working with teams, and importance of knowing everything about your company. When you genuinely want to help solve peoples problems, working with people or working – more... in sales comes naturally.
-Management and co-workers were like your teammates/friends
-Hardest part of job was walking door to door in the hot summer sun along with rude residents.
-Most enjoyable part is hitting your goals – less

great job for motivated people.
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Midland, TXFebruary 26, 2014
I worked for vivint for almost 4 years doing outside sales. Sales were acquired door to door in residential neighborhoods and businesses. Worked in a team environment but also sales were very personal and job was 100% commission. The part of the job I didn't like is that you pretty much turn into a traveling salesman following trends every 4-6 months. – more... I wanted something more stable. – less

fun work place with a cafeteria for lunch
Customer Service/ Sales Representative (Former Employee), Provo, UTFebruary 16, 2014
Pros: talk to a lot of different people and traveled the states
Cons: people i worked with
Vivint was a fun place to work at. I started there on the phones as sales and currently was getting over a divorce so I didnt produce what i wanted to in the beginning so I decided in 2013 to do the summer sales job. I have a few friends thats been in the business for 6 years so I went to the midwest with them last year. I traveled by car and went to – more... five different states! I picked my friends brains about the job to be successful. My most successful month out of the five i was gone in i sold 31 in May and that was a big accomplishment. This job required going to an area and knocking on doors and switching them over from there previous alarm company and to join ours! The product I believed in and was able to get into a lot of homes and the success depended on customers credit and work ethic. I enjoy sales and talking to people. – less
