I worked at Champion Energy Services full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good company, good people for the most part, good reputation for both commercial and residential business.

Cons

Lousy base salary and even worse commission structure. I accepted the base because the commission plan that was presented to me made me believe I could easily recoup the lost salary. Our whole team was lied too and the commission plan was not anywhere close to what we we signed on for. Ended up being 1.5% of margin (15% is standard). Our entire team ended up quitting over the course of 1 - 3 years. From what I hear, the commission plan is still the same. You can make more selling newspapers on the side of the road.

Advice to Management

Don't misrepresent the comp plan to your sales reps and give them a plan with some incentives.

    Pros

    The people you work with are down-to-earth and understanding. They provide great training to get your comfortable with their internal systems and practices.

    Cons

    The pay is WAY below average, and they are currently on a hiring freeze that does not allow them to hire anyone on full-time.

    Advice to Management

    Be upfront with potential employees. Don't wait 2+ months to tell them they aren't going off of contract rates anytime soon.
