    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Just Energy.

    Interview Details

    This company does not make it clear on the opening...They hide there words "door to door " is not a term they will admit to. This process is more like , lets see if we can find a sucker in a group of people. Really ..Who wants to work for someone that is not upfront about their company from the start. The trick is set interview....get you to come in....hire you...tell you about job...train you ...put you in a van and drop you off in some neighbor hood and knocking on doors.... "The truth hurts"........It is like pulling teeth to get these answers before you waste you time and go on the so called interview.......I hate so called businesses like these.......

    Customer Service Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oak Park, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Oak Park, IL
    Application Details

    interviewed at Just Energy in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received a telephone call asking me to come in for an interview for the position of Customer Service. I was told the position pays between $16 - $20/hour and that there was no selling involved. I accepted the interview and when I arrived was given a clip board and told to fill out the application in a room full of people. There were a told of 20 people there for the interview. A man came in a gave a very poor presentation. Then each individual was interviewed separately. The job was NOT for customer service, but instead for a door-to-door, 100 percent commission sales job!

    Interview Questions
    • There were not any difficult questions. The company had fraudulently misled people to the interview.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I declined because the company lied about the title of the position and the salary.

    Administration Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, KS
    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, KS
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Just Energy.

    Interview Details

    They posted an ad for an administrative position, I sent my resume and they called back telling me they want to talk to me. They wrote they have many positions available so I asked if their administrative position is still open or not. They said no, but they want me for customer service. So I went there. They had set up a class and presented everyone on a hierarchical process they have in which you start as a client representative and go up to a manager in 9 months. They talked to us in person for about 1 minute!! and then they told me to call and ask if I was accepted or not. I did and they told me congratulations! Please come in on day x and see how everything is. I did my research and realized they want us to go door to door asking to see people's bills and most people quit the first week. Overall, they don't tell you the truth from the very beginning and only promise to pay you a lot while that never happens.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing, they interview you for 1 minute and say you're hired no matter what you say or how you act or what you wear. They ask what your work ethics are (what kind of question is that?!) and what you're good at. They don't even care about your answers, they want door to door salespeople.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I realized they were lying and hiding what the real job is and not taking me through an honest path.

    Outbound Cold Caller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Just Energy in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Through a staffing agency, but the interview was still a joke. They will hire ANYBODY, as is evidenced by the fact that when I interviewed, I straight up told them that I intended to continue seeking employment elsewhere, and took an almost combative attitude. I knew I didn't want the contract, but had to interview anyway, so I was literally trying NOT to get hired. The interview is lip service, nothing more.
    Or, I should specify, LYING lip service. They lie to you about what you will be getting paid, about what kind of sales numbers you can reasonably make, and what hours you will be working.
    I only took the job because to decline it would have endangered my unemployment and my standing with the temp agency.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you want to work for us? This was only unexpected because I hadn't applied for the job, I'd been sent there from a staffing agency.   View Answer

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Just Energy.

    Interview Details

    Saw an ad in the employment section of the local newspaper. I knew based upon the information of the ad that this would be a sales position. When I went to my interview, they asked me questions about myself and my work history. I had to attend a 2 day learning class, I started the 3rd day. I earned $150 on my first day! Also received a bonus which they pay to help you get to your first paycheck. Awesome!

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult questions. Everything was straight forward.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Everything was straight forward. I was told that if I followed the program, than by the law of averages, I would achieve certain results. After a few days of working there, I found this to be true, and in fact, with dedication, I surpassed that threshold.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in South Bend, IN
    Anonymous Employee in South Bend, IN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Just Energy.

    Interview Details

    This company grossly misrepresented the job I applied for. I was called for an interview and throughout the interview laced with semantics and pyramid scheme language I eventually determined that the "Customer Service Rep" job was actually a 100% commission based door-to-door sales job.

    Reasons for Declining

    When I asked the interviewer why Just Energy was a not an accredited Better Business Bureau company I was told that it was not possible because "If you are out and run into someone from your personal life who has a problem with you they may elect to write a letter to the BBB just to try to get even with you." Long and short, the interviewer spent the entire interview apologetically trying to sell me on the idea that I could be making a 6 figure income like him, He produced his paychecks and showed me documentation that he had only been associated with the company for 8 months. This was a waste of time and felt like a ponzi / pyramid scheme from the git-go.
