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

    Pros

    Some cool people that work there, but they deserve better
    If you're desperate for a job, you're in the right place

    Cons

    Doesn't pay well, you can do better if you have your degree
    Long hours
    If you walk through the Call Center is what I think walking through a prison yard would be like
    Company is in dire financial crisis.
    They literally scam customers. Google "Just Energy Scams" and you'll see hundreds of complaints. Do you want to work for this shady company?
    They messed up payroll and didn't fix it until next pay period. It put a lot of people in financial problems.

    Advice to Management

    Liquidate the company, try to pay off your large debt to equity ratio

    Pros

    None other than location however they are over crowded in building

    Cons

    As a former employee I would like to share some helpful information for job seekers.

    First I would like to point out that the organization employs poor leaders and they are not held accountable for their performance.

    Within the last year the company culture has changed. Mainly because new leaders joined and rolled out changes within company that were aggressive. The culture is not designed for everyone to work towards a common goal it's now a back stabbing type culture.

    It is not a good place to work. Also if you decide to work for the company good luck getting paid. The payroll is always wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Value employees
    Stop micro managing
    Hold leaders accountable
    Pay for performance
    Pay bonuses fairly
    Work life balance
    Stop over working employees
    Stop over staffing and fix problem
    Stop staffing top heavy
