    I have been working at Just Energy as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is definitely an opportunity to grow beyond being a slave to the 9-5 humdrum. The growth opportunity is phenomenal!

    Cons

    In my eyes the only thing that OTHERS would consider to be a con is the fact that your results are based around your own actions! Most people are not ready to be their own boss. They are accustomed to the 8 hour work for someone else and make someone else rich schema.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be some kind of way to be able to monitor the employees who give JustEnergy a bad rep, because they are the ones who create and cause customers to be dissatisfied! Not fair to the rest of us!!! Thank you for this wonderful opportunity! It has changed my life for the better.

    I worked at Just Energy full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    -The receptionist was nice
    -Company vacations
    -May be a okay summer job for students

    That is all.

    Cons

    -They lie and tell you that you will make $18/hr, but once you sign the contract you will find out that it's straight commission based for about a year.
    -The management team is young and is bent on abusing their power. They often use fowl lanuage towards the employees and are arrogant.
    -They don't tell you it a door to door job until you are just about to enter training.
    -Promote get rich quick scheme but many end up with checks well under $500 (scam).
    -They drop you off in bad neighborhoods hours away from the office. Many house were even boarded up. One of the employees were robbed when dropped off alone in one of the bad neighborhoods.
    -You are literally stranded in unfamiliar neighborhoods even during the winter and is expected to continue working from 12pm- 8pm regardless of the rain and snow. This means that if you are stranded in the rain or snow and you don't know anyone in that town, then you are stranded until they pick you up later that night.
    -If you work 12 hours and don't make any sells then that means that you've worked the whole day for nothing because you won't get paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't waste people time. Make sure your leaders have good team management skills and people skills. They were inexperienced and I witnessed them yelling, cursing, and slamming doors on multiple employees on my first day alone. Also, provide your employees with base pay, not commission pay. It's going to be cold outside soon show them that you care for their hard work during these 12 hour shifts.

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, okay management in certain areas.

    Cons

    Management only truly cares about numbers. Only ones that make them look good. No matter how often they mention they appreciate employees efforts, they truly undermine and undervalue the true talent around, often having preference on incompetent managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to listen to your employees. Place knowledgeable, truly experienced, well rounded managers in the right places rather than relying on someone who may look good on paper but may not be technical, nor have the desire to gain more knowledge.

    Great Pay, Tough Work

    Current Employee - Just Energy Independent Contractor in Buffalo, NY

    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.
