    I have been working at Just Energy

    Pros

    Great pay for the work done. You make as much money as you can work for. The training is great and it really help you understand how to sell.

    Cons

    The fact is the product being sold is crap. You are selling a product that doesn't help the people who purchase it but actually hurts them. There isn't any base pay and no benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If at all possible, create a product that Independent Contractors are proud to sell. Any IC that really understands the program knows that "Price Protection" isn't what we say it is.
