Stressful but rewarding, typical day included you to meet and greet customers and generate leads for Comfort advisor's. I learned specific's about the HVAC Industry. Our management team was some what limited by the company policy. The workplace culture was friendly and the hardest part of job was securing leads. The most enjoyable part of job was the feeling of success when a sale was fully complete.
Not a career or something you want to do for the rest of your life

It gets old fast. The managers gossip about you and have their favorites. Training is not as extensive as needed for success and if you're an SSA, you are basically a bottom feeder. They call and text your phone all day and harass you to meet quota when they're behind on business and getting their butts chewed out due to their lack of training.

Working with the customer was always a pleasure. There were always appreciative to receive help with their repair issues. Working as a CSR, those are thing that you look forward when working with the customer.
Comfort Advisor (Sales) (Former Employee) – Vero Beach, FL 32960 – December 17, 2017
Absolutely amazing company to work for. Most co-workers are very good people. Management is sub-par. They don't care if you have an emergency with your family or if you have a court date, etc. All they care about is their money which shouldn't effect you taking time to deal with these things as the job is commission based. Benefits are nice if you make it the 90 days to receive them. Company claims to provide cell phone and laptop but don't be fooled, you wont get it. You do get a company vehicle and gas card so the company does cover that. Don't get caught using your phone while driving (even on bluetooth) as you will get suspended if not terminated. Must be willing to drive most of the day as the company works from Mims to Hobe Sound. Its a nice company but the local management needs some work. Many great people there but there is definitely a few that aren't.
potential for good pay, great benefits, meeting new people, mostly good co-workers
long hours, no work/home balance, difficulties with management, lack of communication

Energy Consultant (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – November 27, 2017
Be ready to drive around the world for this place. When I was there I put over 25K plus miles on my car in just a few months. You do not get reimbursed for gas either. The leads aren't good and you will go to people's homes that are not home. You cannot call the customer before going over to their home to see if they are home so this makes the job even more frustrating. Also be ready to work long hours. You work 6 days a week and anywhere from 10 to 12 hours a day. This job is 100% commission and you only make 8% off every sale. I would not recommend this place to anyone
My co-workers were awesome but a lot of them quit as well for the same reasons.
The leads. They will be good one second then terrible for a straight month.

ARS is a great company. My manager is helpful and approachable. We work long hours but are paid by what we do. So if you are money motivated then this is the company for you. Is it perfect? No way but tell me what job is? They provide a company truck, company gas card, company phone and all the customers I can handle. They allow me to operate my truck as if it is its own little company. If I ever leave here, I feel as if I would be able to open my own company and be successful. They taught me that. I work hard and get rewarded for it. I was able to put my kid through college because of this company.
If you are lazy, or want a lot of time off other than your PTO, then this isn't the place for you. BUT if you want to make money and have a chance to grow, I would recommend it all day.
Lead Installer (Former Employee) – Norcross, GA – November 5, 2017
I worked there for a few months and started to make great money. Then they started to make changes to our pay. Cut hours even from the hours already worked. Cut our pay by hundreds a week and I could not support my family. Working the same long hours everyday and getting paid less than before doing the same amount of work. Managers lying to my face on excuses why the pay has gone down. Overall bad experience. You can make a little money there but count on them to cheat you in the end.
Licensed drain tech and excavation sales (Former Employee) – Houston texas and Atlanta Ga. – November 4, 2017
Dishonesty is rewarded with commission but if you were honest and attempted to apply supposed company core values you were deemed unprofitable because of your honesty. Many long-term employees barrowed money for rent and car payments from me on a regular basis. I was fortunate to have saved a great deal of money from my previous work place and had security from that job. Houston and Atlanta offices are horrible
