Last year, ADT paid $2 billion dollars to acquire Brinks/Broadview Home Security, effectively establishing their company as one of the primary providers of home security systems. It seems that along with this recent expansion, ADT is now looking to fill certain positions in some of their regional offices. Right now, it seems that ADT is looking to fill several positions in one of their Tennessee offices. Here’s some information about ADT’s home security jobs, and what you need to do to apply.
How Many Jobs Are Available?
According to current information, there are 50 positions that need to be filled at ADT’s office in Knoxville, TN. However, there was also information that supported the possibility that ADT may be looking to hire for many other positions by the end of this year.
Why is ADT Hiring?
ADT is apparently hiring because they’re expanding their business as a result of their acquisition of Brinks/Broadview Security. Here’s a statement from Candace Lane, who is a human resources manager at ADT:
“We’re now in the process of integrating the two businesses. As a result of that process, we are expanding our work force here.”
How Much Does ADT Pay?
The positions that are available at ADT’s office in Knoxville are said to provide a base pay of $10 to $11 per hour. ADT also offers insurance coverage, as well as a 401k retirement plan to its employees.
Where Are These Jobs Located?
All of the jobs currently being offered out of the Knoxville office are local, which means that you need to live (or be willing to relocate) in Knoxville, TN. Previously, the Knoxville office was owned and operated by Brinks/Broadview Security. However, after it came under the ownership of ADT, it seems that the company decided to expand their workforce.
How Can I Apply?
To apply for a job in the ADT Knoxville office (as well as other ADT jobs), you will need to submit your application online. In most cases, you will be asked to upload a resume, as well as manually enter information in an online form for submission to ADT. Some jobs may also require you to take a personality test, or a short questionnaire about workplace ethics. Here’s the link to ADT’s job page:
Tips for Applying
Make sure that you have adequate experience for the job that you’re applying for. Also, it’s best if you write a cover letter that’s included with your resume. Remember – many employers see hundreds of resumes each day, and may approve or deny a potential employee based solely on their qualifications (or lack of). However, make sure that you don’t overqualify as well. Applying for a position that you’re overqualified for can be a red flag to potential employers. Some applications may give you a short space where you’re given the chance to say a bit about yourself, and why you want that position. Take advantage of that! Be honest, straightforward and clear about why you think you’re the best fit for the position that you’re applying for.
