    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.

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

    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.

    I have been working at Just Energy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    By far the best job I’ve ever had. The positive experience each and every day in the office is the best part. It’s a family environment and everyone is supportive and motivates each person to be the best they can be. This company offers several opportunities to move up quickly in the company. This is not just a job, this is a career:

    Cons

    Zero cons unless you’re a person who doesn’t have the drive to change your life.

    I have been working at Just Energy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been with Just Energy for 9 months now. I'm currently pushing for the next step in my career. I signed my mother up with the Unlimited Plan which is currently only available through Just Energy and no other supplier. Now she has steady bills, with no additional charges or budget billing needed for affordability.

    Cons

    Not everyone is cut out for the long haul, but the rewards are worth it. Your weaknesses are exposed so if you don't want to change for the better, and change certain habits, then this is not ment for you. If you believe you're strong enough to change your habits, then I'm sure I'll be meeting you soon.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build upon the foundation you have drawn out for us and we will continue to grow at an exponential rate!
