I worked at Just Energy (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 Management

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.

    Management should drive to employ good sound, efficient management strategies which should help to develop all employees from a career perspective.

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

    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 Management

    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.
