    Pros

    LOL no pros unless you like bad pay, and being treated like your the scum of the earth because that's how you'll feel everyday

    Cons

    I went for an interview and they hired me on the spot because they hire anyone!! I'm never going back The ad DID NOT say door to door sales.. The whole thing is a scam and if they're at my door I'm calling the cops because they don't have permits and work you for 10-12 hours Monday - Saturday with no over time it's only commission based. And if the customs makes a return they take it out of YOUR PAY CHECK that's doesn't even come until you've work there for a month. Useless job. Only work there if you like coming home at the end of the day feeling like garbage having to deal with sexist managers all day. Puke

    Advice to Management

    Die

    Pros

    Good place to meet new people. Everyone gets along. Taught me everything about cold calling

    Cons

    The commission is awful. Regional mangers promote people their sleeping with rather then those who sell. (I have most deals in company history in a week)

    Advice to Management

    Fix your regionals.

    Pros

    None..... Having done door to door for 3 yrs.... This product is the worst thing you can sell. Have to lie to people at the door... They teach you how to lie to people.. "Break eye contact while pitching at the door so they dont give you objections" ..... Lol wat a joke...!!! Trust me there are better things to sell out there if you are into sales.

    Cons

    Dont waste ur time here..... Long work hrs with no pay.. 6-7 hrs of walking...... And lying to people begging them to sign contracts which actually traps them.... Huge cancellation fees if they want to opt out later.
    Waste of time at the morning meetings... Told that i had to do very less door to door at the interview and would be paid the minimum wage. Its 100% door to door $40 per sales. Clawback after two months if the customer cancels.

    Advice to Management

    Cant belive the company has made billions by scamming people like this.

    Pros

    Good work environment. The people I work with are very friendly and professional. I have had the opportunity to interact with different parts of the business in Canada and in the US and learn more about the Energy Industry.

    Cons

    There is a lot of traffic around the area, your commute can take longer if you take the highways.
