      Probably not a scam. Not solar. Exercise. Decent people.


      Sounds like a scam making it a tough sell. The prices of the products are so high that they are not disclosed to the appointment setters. Appointment setting isn't any different from selling, it is just a two part sales process, and the canvassers get the harder part. Bad work life balance. Far commute to work for most of the employees. No reimbursement of gas. No hourly pay resulting in lots of unpaid work, especially starting out. Unnecessarily high pressure to perform due to 100% commission structure. Commission only works well for plenty of jobs, canvassing for energy efficiency remodeling (a word they encouraged us not to use) is not one of them.


      Thank you for your response! We can assure you that a company working with state and federally funded programs as well as utility companies are not a "scam." We do not actually "sell" products but do offer a service where we can schedule a free energy assessment so the homeowner can find out where there home can be potentially wasting energy. After the energy assessment, we will share the result with the homeowner and let them know what they may qualify for through these state programs. We apologize if you weren't successful at this position and the pay structure was not adequate enough for you however, we have many employees that earn great income in the same position and pay structure as you. We do have employees on hourly, salary, and commission wages depending what position they are in as well as their past experiences. Good luck with your future ventures.

        Company culture is #1 priority. Greenspire focuses on morale of the staff. Constant incentives, perks, contests, group activities, sports games, parties and banquets. I respect the executive team. Each an every member is heavily involved in each phase and department of the business. There is a open door policy with issues as long as we have proposed solutions. Everyone from my direct manager to the CEO is willing to jump into any issue and understand difficulties from a ground level view.


        Sometimes I feel like the company can be over motivated... We work hard and absolutely get deserved time off and holidays, etc, however you will be pushed 50 of the 52 weeks per year. It can be tiring, but if you are the right fit you will grow and learn like crazy.

      Operations Coordinator

      First interview: I am so excited to meet with you today!! 😀😌 50th interview: Hi


      Project Manager

      I interviewed with a company (2 interviews of 1h each) more than 15 days ago. In the company's portal my application shows as "in progress" and I haven't heard back from anyone (HR or interviewers). Is this normal?



      When sending a post interview follow up email to a hiring manager, is it appropriate to address the manager by first name, or is it more appropriate to use Mr. or Ms. X (assuming they have not invited you to address them informally and that their gender identity is clear)
