    Pros

    Overall the company leadership cares for employees with good salaries and decent benefits.
    There are a lot of opportunities as the Company is growing and looking into new product lines.

    Cons

    The structure of the sales force is extremely expensive which leads to high priced products that are not competitive. The Company uses questionable sales tactics to push these high priced products on customers who do not fully understand what they are signing.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate the sales model to provide competitive products that can benefit a customer. There are very few gas or electric products that provide a value to customers. The variable rate products cause rate shock once the customer is past the discount months.

    Pros

    It located in a nice part of oak park. Ample parking in the parking lot. Frank was Honest. That's it.

    This job is very misleading in its job description. They are 100 percent commission based jobs. regardless of what the said when they call you for an interview. They are liars.

    Pros

    There are some amazing people working there and they try to do their best with what they have to work with.

    Cons

    The executive management is extremely shady and it is no accident that they are constantly being hit with class action lawsuits and fines for fraud. They deny responsibility, but are absolutely aware to the highest level.

    Advice to Management

    Leave and spend your life trying to make amends for your actions.

  7. It was okay, people were nice, management was cool. But as for hours and pay nope. Not at all

    The management, donuts on Saturdays and co-workers.

    Cons

    Commission based only no hourly pay 12hr of time wasted.

    Advice to Management

    Do hourly instead of commission based and you wouldn't have to rehire every two weeks.

    Pros

    You will never have a dull moment with your co-workers

    Cons

    The place is a TOTAL rip off. They try and get you all pumped up to work there, and when you do you feel like your in hell!!!! Your work seemingly endless hours walking in rough neighborhoods that your dropped off in and you literally go door to friggin door trying to get people to sign up for what you are told is a money saving change to their bill. ITS NOT!!! Not only that its 100% commission and even though you get a deal or 4 don't count on all of them because they arbitrarily tell you some just didn't go through!!!! You have no way of proving them wrong you just have to take their word for it!!! They take your uniform out of your check, they take the road trips out of your check.....by the time they bestow this whopper of a check on you your dumbfounded as to wtf your doing here in the first place. I made more money with a lemonade stand at the age of eight in one day than I ever saw on one check there!!!! Oh and the best part is come tax season ur screwed AGAIN cuz they don't bother to take them out!!!

    Advice to Management

    STOP LYING TO PEOPLE!!!

    Pros

    Its fun at times
    you'll definitely get a work out
    everyone is friendly and cool

    Cons

    Its a door to door job
    You're working no matter what the weather
    they say youre getting paid 15-18 an hour but its all comission
    very hard to make sales
    you work from Monday to Saturday 10 am-11pm and you HAVE to go out out of the city one to two weeks out of every month and you pay for your own expenses so if you're new and have no money you're pretty much screwed,
    you deal with alot of crazy homeowners, you'll get guns pulled on you,
    the company doesn't eben have permits so you'll get kicked out of neighborhoods alot and deal with cops alot

    Pros

    Great pay, Social Customer Service, Travel

    Cons

    Door to Door Sales, sometimes to are stuck Driving the Van, Pay Check comes from Canada Company Not American at all. They dont take out for Federal and State Taxes in the end of the year income tax u have to pay back. Note if u are Just Energy please Start having the Local Company in the USA do Pay Check not over the border in Canada

    Advice to Management

    Great Management Just no an American Company it is not right and should be paid in America by American Companies not Over the Border in Canada
