This job is a very dedicated job & you have to be a very good soiciable person to work there. It takes a lot of courage. It teaches you life skills. You just have to be self motivated. There is so much to learn from various people that have had different life experiences. The care there is very admirable. They show love and make sure everyone is comfortable. Your never pressured into doing anything you don't want too. Its always about what you want.

A typical day at work should run smoothly peaceful n positive environment. You learn everyday and at work you should be learning how to be better and do your job better. Management taught me how to be a better worker as well how to be productive in the work force. My co-workers help one another to stay focus NO MAN OR WOMEN LEFT BEHIND. Hard part is staying positive through out the day with rude clients. What I love is knowing that I was productive and positive and that I helped someone that day.

My experience working for IDT energy was very exiting. One of the most exiting thing was learning from different people, the environment was very welcoming and people respected your values.The only downside was that the benefits wasn't very good.

I was the driver for the company every morning I met my co-workers.Traveled 2 hours outside of philadelphia to work the field.Practiced scripts and ways to communicate with our customers.The hardest part of the job was getting others ready to do their work.The thing I enjoyed the most was seeing the end results of a hard week of work.Reaching sales qouta and being pleased with my pay check.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – December 30, 2015
it's a go getter type of work place they try to motivate their workers before they head out for the day. but in all they do not take control of their workers they are not very organized and the supervisors try to show off their work position and try to make it seem like they're better than the people that work for them.
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – October 14, 2015
Fun work place with supportive team. We motivated each other to do our best. The most enjoyable part of the job were my co-workers who were fun, unique and exciting. There was something to look forward to each day and each day was new. The hardest part of this job would be working outdoors in the Winter time. Also with that said, Winter is the most unstable time for income due to commission based only contract. Other than that, talking to different people from different neigborhoods is awesome and i loved it.

Receptionist (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – October 22, 2014
typical day at working at IDT is very busy. making appointment's and filing paper work. I've learned how to multi-task using the computer and answering phone calls and also scheduling appointments. Managements were not bad just made sure your on top of your work. my co workers were very nice and friendly.
Long hours; not treated by supervisors/mgr.'s w/respect. Poor training.
Consumer Service Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Jamestown, NY – July 30, 2013
Answer telephones, learned budget billing for gas & electric w/customers. Co-workers were young, immature and swore a lot. Supervisors belittled you and constantly looked for errors even if you were not at fault. Hardest part of job was having only three days training and then you were on your on on the phones. Most enjoyable part were my hours 11:00-7:30.
Hours of position.
Lack of proper training; terrible supervisors and co-workers.

all and all , I would work the job anyday because it is something I would not mind doing anyday . the haredest part of the job , would probably be waiting to find a customer . the best part is getting my sales the correct way and leaving the customer satisfied
Door-to-door sales (Former Employee) – Albany ny – April 8, 2015
Met new people every day over the phone. I learned that people do not like to be called at home by telemarketers. The hardest part of the job was signing customers up over the phone. The most enjoyable part of the job was celebrating when I found out I received a bonus.
QUALITY CONTROL AGENT (Former Employee) – Jamestown NY – November 17, 2013
The company is a good company as they strive to get energy customers lower rates (which never happens). The management was great when I first started but later on as polocys changed, they got more strict.
Sales Person (Former Employee) – Jamaica, NY – August 1, 2014
each day we go door to door to tell people about our special offer to reduce their gas and light bill if they sign up with our energy supplier. we get doors slammed in our face and we had great customers. but the hunt for new customers was exciting to me
