Sales Operations Coordinator (Former Employee) – American Fork, UT – September 5, 2017
I was terminated the day before my grandfathers funeral. If you are the type of person that can hit the ground running and make ZERO mistakes while at it then maybe you might have a chance to work longer than a month there. If not, then you will be gladly terminated as I was. I'm not sure if that's how it was in other departments however that's how the ship is sailed in the sales ops department.
Working for Blue Raven has been an interesting endeavor. The potential to make money with the company is very real. You get out of it what you put in. This is a door knocking job, you set your own leads and when you close them the potential to make money is very real. The goal is to get 1 sale a week and a sale is easily $1,000 for an average or larger system. There are all sorts of incentives to encourage you to work harder and I want to continue to grow with the company.

Team approach was great but training was lousy kind of sink or swim but new manager is much better. Knocking doors is wearing on the attitude and many people say NO very few items now sold at the door nowdays.
Assistant Manager of Sales (Former Employee) – MD – February 17, 2017
Company gives no support to sales guys. Purely commission'ed job so they don't really care. If you have n issue it takes forever to resolve. Company allowed sales team to continue selling a product that they knew would never be installed, so guys didnt get paid.

I have worked for others and nobody can compete with Blue Raven. Pay is excellent, the people are awesome, the industry is booming! Notice I didn't say it was easy, BRS has a culture of work hard play hard. I bust my butt every day, but I have a ton of fun doing it and I really really think I have found my place here.
I think the biggest thing is I know that people here care about me, my development, my entire situation. It is rare to find a co-worker, a boss, a leader, let alone an entire company who cares about you and your well being. Come join the family, you won't regret it.
We are family, exciting industry, financially stable, honest, caring leadership
If you are looking for a free ride, this isn't the place for you
Appointment Setter (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 6, 2016
A typical day at work was meeting the team around mid-day then setting off into groups into a neighborhood of your choice, or you could skip the meeting and go out on your own at whatever hours your desire. Almost as if your were you were your own boss!
Sales Representative/ Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 29, 2016
A typical day at work involved knocking on doors and engaging customer about solar panels. I learned to not allow customer mood affect mine and turn negative energy into positive energy. Management could have been better with better training as i learned most of my sales experience first hand. My co-workers kept me motivated to do better and strive to be the best. The hardest part of the job was to overcome objections and deal with customer excuses to not move forward with sales process. most enjoyable part of the job was to encounter a vast majority of people and conversate with them.

working for blue raven solar is was awesome, although I work alone more of the time since I was a independent contractor. the pay was great the only thing the solar industry is really saturated in the market and working purely of commission was starting to become more difficult. I did enjoy meeting new people everyday.
When the market was good the income seemed limitless.
its purely commsion pay and the way the market is now its just not the same.
