    "Door to Door Sales"

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Reliant Energy full-time

    Pros

    Ability to make money off of every sale and the option to divert from the group and pick your own neighborhoods to scout and sell to.

    Cons

    Management needs to work on communication and how to level with their employees. It can also be unsafe walking around neighborhoods late at night and waiting for team leaders to pick you up.

    Advice to Management

    Training needs to be more thorough when it comes to the financial part of training, employees need a more firm grasp on what plan would work best for each applicant we are trying to sell to.
