Avoid
Avoid at all costs, commission based and no base salary, have to pay your own way to the middle of nowhere and spend money on lunches so you’re spending more than making, the managers act like they’re 16 year olds talking about junior staff behind their backs, would not recommend

It was OK highly stressful at times
I started working for phone watch in June of 2019. I really enjoyed my first year but that's about as good as it got. I left in April of 2022. Basic salary is below industry standards and alot is dependent on your ability to sell not your ability to actually maintain and install alarms. I was very adept at performing my roles as an engineer. I was trained on systems that most will not be however my basic wage never reflected my ability to do more than the average engineer could. I had a good ability to sell and met targets mostly but unfortunately your quality of work and ability to actually maintain and install alarms is overshadowed by the greed of the company trying to squeeze every last penny out of there clients pockets. Coupled with the fact that sales blatantly lie at point of sale about the capabilities of the alarm including but not limited to the coverage the basic system offers, warning customers not to pay attention to engineers who have a duty of care to advise on what sensors outside the basic package they need for coverage.Work life balance is poor as an engineer you can expect to work past your paid times with little chance of overtime pay. Sudden and drastic changes to your oncall rota. I and a colleague were switched from the leinster region bearing in mind we live in laois to the connacht region overnight with no communication until weeks after the fact. Stock is a continual problem and you can expect to go and meet fellow engineers outside your contracted hours to retrieve stock.Management leaves alot to be desired. If you happen to break your sub par company issued phone even after 3 years your expected to pay an extortionate 200 euros even if you had no option but to go and buy your own phone after no correspondence from the powers that be when reporting the phone was inoperative.If you lose or misplace as little as a screwdriver you will be charged for it.The positives are you get a company van fuel inclusive to use for leisure for the sum of 83 euros a month roughly this is deducted at point of pay and evident on your payslip. Pension and Union. Union take 20ish euros per month. 20 days holidays exclusive of public holidays. 13 weeks sick pay in a rolling 12 month periodYou can make good money but it is highly based on luck and area not on sales ability alone. A mixed bag. Met some really good people in the Company and had some good times. However the bad out weighs the good

What you can bring to the table

Shared on 30 September 2020

They hire for personality, it’s an entry level sales job so don’t be expecting to be selling any pens in the interview.
