Productive job that required discipline and minimal supervision
Energy Auditor (Former Employee) – Okemos, MI – January 29, 2016
A typical day at work consisted of out in the field. I drove onsite to different customers to provide an energy auditor at their facility. Specifically I spoke to the designated contact person and asked probing questions regarding their energy usage and consumption. I would go in and look at their furnace unit and hot water tank and offer various measures to lower cost. These measure included incentives and rebates that their business could potentially qualify for. I would later generate a detailed report with my finds and send it to the customer. On average I would visit 5 to 7 customers per day. The average time for me to complete a walk through in a facility is roughly an hour. Also I would install free products such as low flow aerators, furnace filters and programmable thermostats if there was a direct install opportunity.

Project Coordinator / Customer Service (Former Employee) – Chica – December 22, 2014
When I first started working for this company I was going data entry, I then begin to do customer service and events. I learned about the different rebate that home owner are able to get for HVAC products, Attic installation, hot water heaters, and boilers. This company haven't been around that long, therefore if you had a question you rarely could get a answer. The most enjoyable part to this job was the events, interacting with so many different people and different places.
you learn about so many things free things that can help everyday people who are struggling.
if they don't win a bid mean they don't have the budget for employees and they have to get laid-off.
Very hard working focused culture, team work environment

Project Coordinator / Lead Direct Installer (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 18, 2013
Overall, the management is willing to try to develop you to get you experience and certifications. Work load does get overwhelming sometimes due to the time constraint and goals. Job security is tough due to being a contracted employment (most contracts are 3 yrs at a time).
lunch and learns; company parties; contests
long hours; under-budgeted programs so not enough people per program; overwhelming goals.
