    I worked at The Power Company

    Pros

    This position is not for everyone, which I see as a plus. If you work hard, and maintain a positive attitude, you WILL make more money than you co-workers. The office consists almost exclusively with competitive employees that will drive you to be better at your job.

    The training is awesome because you will be learning from individuals who have "been there / done that". And your trainer will legitimately want you to succeed.

    The atmosphere of the office (when you're there) is amazing. I have never had as much fun working somewhere. Nor has any other company that I've worked for pushed me to become a better person. This was definitely an experience that I learned from.

    Cons

    This is residential and business to business sales, depending on which job you get. You will be knocking on people's doors or walking into businesses, this business can be very rewarding if you are comfortable speaking to people face to face. If you are not, then this probably is not the job for you.

    I worked at The Power Company

    Pros

    Nothing, if you like being lied to then this is the company for you

    Cons

    This is a pyramid scheme. I worked there for 1 month, when I got hired I was promised $1K per week, I made a total of $280 in 4 weeks. When I went to file for unemployment I was told that I do not qualify because I was a Contractor, that was a surprise to me as well

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lying to your employees.

    I worked at The Power Company as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    No pros very unprofessional and unethical

    Cons

    no structure, no communication, The Ceo (Pat Farah) very unprofessional, i was not compensated for two weeks and i told him about the circumstances he laughed at my situation and never heard from him. do not work here. The company goes in to low income neighborhoods and basically lie to people, making they're gas and electric bill higher than what it is. They even give out scripts of what to say to people so they understand to a certain extend. its a dont ask dont tell policy with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be prepared for a long court battle

    Pros

    -Team atmosphere.
    - Managers that know what they are doing, and know how to teach and train.
    - Friendly competitions
    - The Power Company is expanding throughout the US, so while other companies are downsizing, they are growing.
    - Does custom pricing for their commercial accounts.
    - Everyone from the in office staff to the residential teams knows each other and pays attention to each others growth.
    -An over all up and coming company, one to really watch and keep track of throughout 2014.

    Cons

    I don't have anything bad to say about TPC. They have helped me not only gain confidence in sales, but financial freedom as well. I have never been with a company that has worked so hard for me, and not the other way around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Setting up the holiday bonuses and the different incentives was a great way to get us motivated and excited. Great idea, keep those coming!

    A good try for a part-time job

    I have been working at The Power Company

    Pros

    You can earn money very quickly. It's a self-management and self-displine job. You don't need to be at the office everyday.

    Cons

    You don't have basis salary. What you earn is commission.
