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

    Pros

    Decent training, good people supportive environment. They work to get you working and want your success because it means money in their pocket.

    Cons

    My former bosses in the company were embezzling. Was asked to come back after being told that the issue had been taken care of. Company then wanted over 1,500 paid to them from my commissions from fraudulent check cashing those bosses did 6 years previous.

    Advice to Management

    When you find a problem with the books and you know that there are particular people responsible, keep those people responsible. Using strong arm tactics after tricking a person to come back like shorting their pay in a manner that is considered to be illegal is not ethical and doesn't promote goodwill with your employees. Took top 10 in nation in sales in first couple weeks but couldn't trust the pay, imagine how much the company lost out on in the long run.

    Pros

    Pay structure was innovative and aggressive. The ability to move up is excellent.

    Cons

    The downsides of working with Just Energy is the misleading objectives giving by the regional and the national. Alot of dishonest scheming. When production is low sales made by representatives go missing.

    Advice to Management

    Honesty is the best policy. If productions are low and the national or regional not being compensated the way they want to. Taking deals from reps is considered stealing.
