    I have been working at Direct Energy part-time for more than a year


    Very flat organization structure, report directly to manager. I work part time: 20 hours a week. Boss is very laid back, transparent and gives me a lot of flexibility with regard to work time and vacation. Green company whose goal is to make employee healthy and participated in many community charities and activities. Provided shower in Westin Hotel for those who need shower after biking or work out. Has a yoga class on Wednesday during lunch time. Connected to Penn Market Corner which sells organic products, delivered directly to the company every week. Company provides meals occasionaly. Employees get along together and often throw parties. Coffees and teas are provided freely in the kitchen, there's a big Starbuck machine on every floor. Lunch room is equipped with microwaves and refrigerators.


    I am a contract employee that do not have access to health care and other perks of FT employees. Did not get a salary increase the past 1 year. For Full Timer: annual review usually comes with 2% salary increase.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Direct Energy in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initially received a phone call from HR. HR scheduled phone conversation with hiring manager. HR then scheduled in person interview. Met with 4-5 people during interview. Received verbal offer from HR 4 days later, gave me less than 24 hours to respond to offer. Everyone I spoke to was friendly, warm, and inviting. Everyone I spoke to seemed to like working here. Environment is a busy, shared table environment.
