    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

    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

    Pros

    Working with everyone was definitely a plus. You do need to have a strong background in sales with the ability to close deals.

    Cons

    There is a little thing called working permits for each city you go door to door in. You will get tickets if the police are called. You do not get to turn them into the office for reimbursement and it is a misdemeanor that goes on your record. The areas that they do pick to work in have already been knocked by our company (different teams) or by competitors. It also is the reason people get annoyed and call the police.

    The pay is good but considering what you have to do, its not worth it.

    Pros

    Absolutely none, unless you want to loose all your skills and and guarantee that your resume will become unattractive. It's a cheesy utilities company where CEOs have no clue how to act or run it. Very unprofessional environment. Backstabbing and butt kissing is a must to survive. Do not bother

    Cons

    Everything listed above. You are waisting your time. Cons are the fact I listed above in the pros which are non- existent.

    Advice to Management

    Dress professional and act like CEOs as well. Treat people with respect and don't reward backstabbers. That's not coaching. Your more ales are atrocious

    Pros

    The people in my department are truly wonderful and awesome at what they do.

    Cons

    The executive team does not care about morale. Their focus is on obtaining new customers but fail to provide the tools and headcount necessary to maintain current customers.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on employee morale and learn to be proactive instead of reactive.

    Pros

    Very Laid back environment, young and fun

    Cons

    management is only concerned with sales, as long as quotas are met on volume of signups then the sales team gets rewarded even if they are selling products way under value and therefore unprofitably.

    Advice to Management

    fully study full value chain of your company sales are great but costs, inefficiencies,and serious lack of technology hinder any kind of growth
