I decided to get into Solar because I thought it was the industry of the future and there was a lot of potential to start a new career. There is a high turn over rate here. Every two weeks they hire about 15-20 new recruits, half of them dropping out by the second week. I was 1 of 2 people, did well canvassing (really hate this) but couldn't really sell the product. People reconsider and cancel, especially if you are asking them to make a $20,000 plus home improvement. It's a numbers game and you have to keep getting those numbers high if you want one or two of them to actually go through. You need a lot of hard work and patience. The higher you are up in the food chain, the more you make. I ended quitting because I needed more money and was not really going anywhere. Other companies were trying to recruit me to canvass for them, since I was good at it, but I am sure it is all the same. This review is not an indictment on ASD per se, but all solar companies because I think they generally operate the same way.
Received an education on sale techniques, get to meet people.
Used own vehicle, long hours, people cancel appointments without notice, "customers" ignore you at the door when they've made an appointment, work far from home, cheesy inspiration quotes, become more cynical
