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

    Pros

    Business Development Opportunities to run your on desk and learn high volume recruitment with focus on two job orders. Very laxed with verbiage, Growing, contest to compete with others, free trips.

    Cons

    Pay is minimal for high school aged individuals at best, too many conference calls not enough time to manage what's on your desk. Too laxed with verbiage and attitudes of you are looking for a professional environment might not be the best of you don't have tough skin

    Advice to Management

    Be professional, pay what individuals are worth. $15hr is not worth anyone waking up in the morning for the amount of work done
