    I have been working at Just Energy full-time

    Pros

    Team atmosphere is fun. Everyone is motivating each other to be better. Great pay and medical benefits as well. Any accomplishment you hit, the company recognizes so your hard work never goes unnoticed. People want people to succeed here. Also they provide a great training program to teach you everything you need to know and help jumpstart you in your career here. You can make a lot of money here!

    Cons

    Cons are there aren’t any cons. I’ve enjoyed working here and there’s many opportunities to move up in the company and get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing

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

    Pros

    The only pro I had was working in an office with a good environment and good people.

    Cons

    They really have no employee value. You can get fired anytime no matter how long you’ve worked there or for no reason. No direction from management. They expect results but really like what results, when there’s no direction. There’s always the blame game played here.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together!

    I worked at Just Energy full-time

    Pros

    Its an energetic and up beat office. If the job is out o fyour comfort zone, the manager at the Townson MD office will work with you. The job was easy.

    Cons

    I was never told that I would be in door to door sales. I had to be in the office by 11am and we wouldnt be out of the field until 930PM. The scheduling made no sense. Its an extremely competitive field, everyone feels like they're better than you. You only had to work monday through thursday however the managers make you feel pressured into working monday through saturday even though it isnt mandatory. I was dropped off ALONE in sketchy neighborhoods where a group of men even ran up to me screaming and threatening me and no one in the office did anything about it. It takes four weeks before you even get your first paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest when someone asks about their specific position, don't sugarcoat the job. Don't pressure people into working more than what is mandatory if they expressed from the beginning why they only want to work whats expected of them. Finally, make sure the areas you are dropping people off in are actually safe for them to be alone in, especially if they are small females.

    Pros

    Help companies achieve their sustainability goals.

    Cons

    Directors micromanaged to the point their own work was never done. Verbally abusive, toxic environment, existing customers left when top sales people resigned. Promised commission if I closed deals but once closed "that's not in your contract". Directors would also lie about my performance when my monthly sales were higher than theirs.

    Advice to Management

    Realize directors have no clue how to run Terrapass or lead teams.
