I have been working at Direct Energy full-time (Less than a year)
The people here are amazing, and benefits are just phenomenal. They pay a large % of your lifetime gym membership. Subsidized food in their kitchen which is also great. Honestly, i did not expect this from direct energy and happy to call them my employer.
Lots of changes, rapidly growing company so employees have to be nimble. Other than that, great company! If you get a chance to interview take it!
Advice to Management
Continue taking care of your employees as you have been and they will go above and beyond to make sure this company is successful.
I applied online. I interviewed at Direct Energy.
The interview process went from decent to bad. I was contacted by a person in HR by email about a month after applying for the job online. The first interview was a phone interview with the hiring manager. I passed this round and made it on to the first in person interview where I met a few people on the team and the hiring manager. I passed this round and made it on to the final interview to meet some of the higher ups. I honestly felt like I did a great job and spent a great deal of time preparing, as I really wanted this job. Each communication up until this point had been between 1-2 weeks apart, and overall this process took about 1.5 months. After the final round interview, I sent my thank you notes and felt good about my chances. I ended up hearing NOTHING for 5 weeks despite following up weekly. It's pathetic to not get back to a candidate who has invested so much time in your company and made arrangements to miss work for interviews several times. Everyone on this site is correct that Direct Energy has no respect or value for its job candidates. I did not appreciate having to sit and wait nervously for so long. Finally after 5 weeks I was told the job went to someone else.
