    I have been working at Verengo Solar full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is phenomenal for the little experience needed to succeed.
    Opportunities to move up the ranks quickly if you're a hard worker.
    Easy to sell at the door because its a free program.

    Cons

    Not paid for all the hours they take from your schedule. On a typical week I canvass for aprox 20 hours, yet the amount of time I am away from my home is over 40 hours per week. Due to 2 hours unpaid drive time every day and long meal breaks on the road, I typical clock 25 hours but the job keeps from my home for 40+ weekly. It's fine with me because I typicaly make triple my hourly in commission every week.
    incompitent employees at our call center can make the appointment setting job difficult at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees for all drive time. Ask employees how management can make their job easier.

    I have been working at Verengo Solar part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very open and engaging staff, great schedule if you have your own vehicle and you save folks money with solar energy!

    Cons

    Schedule can be unconventional and requires you to work on the weekend. You need a personal vehicle!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish offices where canvass teams meet and drive in a company van or bus to different canvassing locations so as to save gas and limit CO2 footprint.

    Pros

    Professional, growing company. Pays well. Great job security (as far as the solar industry is concerned). The company works to improve its employees, as opposed to letting them go on a regular basis to hire new ones.

    Cons

    Like any competitive industry, they can demand a lot from you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more room for advancement within the company.

    I worked at Verengo Solar full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I was a Sales Rep working for Verengo. They are doing it the right way. Really good leadership in sales. They ask a lot of their sales team but treat you well in return. I got good leads and made good money, but left because of the hours. I really liked their emphasis on honesty and treating customers well.

    Cons

    Its all about the hours. Sales reps have to grind here. Lots of evenings and youll need to work weekends to get good leads and make good money (nature of the business - we need to run leads when homeowners are available to meet with us)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    heard about recent changes where verengo is focusing more of its efforts in profitable markets and is now using inside sales for less profitable markets. makes good sense. also, please consider providing company vehicles for reps.

    Pros

    finally! Leadership got smart and found a really good strategic partner and made some tough but necessary decisions about how we operate in expansion markets. I'm cautiously optimistic about where we're going.

    Cons

    very competitive industry puts pressure on the bottom line and one of the big competitors (sunrun) does things unethically

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've been waiting for this type of bold move for almost two years and was wondering if it would ever happen. My confidence is high.
