Unfortunately, you won't make any money here.
Solar Consultant (Former Employee) – Woodland Hills – July 13, 2014
I worked for this company for close to a year. Unfortunately, even the consultants and crew leaders they tout as successful don't make enough to support themselves.
While working here, the engineering team (the people who did all the back office work like deciding what size system was best and what direction it should face) were often incompetent. Much of the time they made huge mistakes that made the consultant look incompetent and ultimately cost them the sale. Though multiple complaints were made, no action was taken by management.
After hours and hours of work for a sale, many of the customers do not pass credit or roof top inspection, therefore you do not get paid. Still, they parade you around the office telling everyone about your sale. It is very frowned upon to tell people when a sale doesn't pass credit or turn into a paycheck.
When I began, they said it would take 4-6 weeks to get my license. After receiving your license you are able to consult your own appointments. Until then, you are only able to book appointments and if they sell, you get a much smaller cut than what you deserve. It took me 3 months to get it.
I have to say that I do believe in the solar movement, but the way this company treats employees is almost criminal. The labor board should really do some digging here.
working with lots of nice people
only 1/6 deals i signed actually turned into a pay check, management of office didn't address issues brought to his attention
