    I have been working at Green Solar Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Worked for many other solar companies and appreciate the truly innovation sales practices the company employs. Inside sales allows me to reach many more customers on a regular basis, compared to the typical outside solar sales model.

    Cons

    Not used to sitting in an office compared to my last job as an outside salesperson.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow and keep sending me leads.

    If "Due Diligence" questions concerning Company "Reputation" emerge....chances are they require "attention", not "aversion".

    I worked at Green Solar Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Low micromanaging , 2 breaks throughout the day. Only dress code requirement is a button up shirt. Hire you on spot. You can do whatever you want if you are hitting your numbers.

    Cons

    Consistently changing company guidelines with poor communication. Upper management has no care for employees. They will fire you the week of Christmas with no remorse. I’ve seen it done. No transparency within company. No incentive for growth throughout company. You have to wait at least 2-3 months for commission to come in since you don’t get commissions until the project is complete. They don’t tell you their cancellation...

    Advice to Management

    build a solid foundation and Invest in your employees. Get more organized from top to bottom. Pay your employees more. They bring in millions of dollars in sales and get paid 14-16 dollar per hour with commission coming in three months out... fix your high turnover rate. Invest in employee branding. Be competitive in the market so you don’t come off pushy or aggressive on the phone. Make the sales role intriguing. Don’t...

    I worked at Green Solar Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Grant Cardone training is paid for. Nice coworkers. Great Sales Manager.

    Cons

    Imagine you're in a show and every week they tap you on the shoulder when you're dismissed. You're given a salary estimate then they change it. Leaving you the option of either looking for another job or waiting out time till you find something else so your resume looks better. There aren't many benefits if any. There's one guy there everyone hates, he takes joy in his ill will towards others everyone there...

    I have been working at Green Solar Technologies full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I really like the fact that GST really support employee growth and upward mobility. Working here is what you make of it and just like anything, if you put in the work, you rise fast. The owners/executives really do share the wealth which says a lot nowadays. I also really like the perks like health insurance, a good PTO package, and free breakfast/snacks every morning.

    Cons

    The company is going through huge growth spurts and is constantly revising its management style and policies. This often times effects employee moral. You have to be ready and able to adapt to constant change .

  10. Great Place To Work
