    I worked at Verengo Solar as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy job, nobody knows solar internally, ability to succeed around others failing, lack of effort over performs other staff, vacations are available and if they aren't the day is like one.

    Cons

    Most people suck, sales are down, no clue who our manager is or what he does, leadership is missing, won't grow because the company is failing

    Advice to Management

    Hire people that know solar or shut the doors

    This company is the best I have ever worked for. Excellent leadership, good money and fun people. I have been with this company for 4 years and loved every day of it.

    very difficult to keep your status, this gives you all of the opportunities. If you drop into a lower status there is not much to help you back up.

    share the wealth between employees, offer some way to regain status.

    I have been working at Verengo Solar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is phenomenal for the little experience needed to succeed.
    Opportunities to move up the ranks quickly if you're a hard worker.
    Easy to sell at the door because its a free program.

    Cons

    Not paid for all the hours they take from your schedule. On a typical week I canvass for aprox 20 hours, yet the amount of time I am away from my home is over 40 hours per week. Due to 2 hours unpaid drive time every day and long meal breaks on the road, I typical clock 25 hours but the job keeps from my home for 40+ weekly. It's fine with me because I typicaly make triple my hourly in commission every week.
    incompitent employees at our call center can make the appointment setting job difficult at times.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees for all drive time. Ask employees how management can make their job easier.
