Home Energy Advisor, Dublin, OH - January 24, 2016
Your benefits of this job would be pay and it goes up after a couple of months of being there. The position is door to door outside sales representative which can possibly bother some people due to working in all sorts of weather inclement. You definitely have to be tough skinned for the job because alot of customers will say not interested. Moreover my team lead and market manager were okay for the most part however my conflict came when I told them upfront i was in a fulltime masters program and they told me the job would be Monday-Friday and no Saturdays but to find out Saturdays were required also which affected my school schedule. So they want you to work Monday thru Saturdays for $535 per week for around 50 hours a week which the extra day became not worth it. Also our location market manager seems to take off every week one day out of the week because his dog is sick which is completely ridiculous. There is also a huge disconnect between corporate and the offices. Technically when it gets dark you should go home according to corporate but the individual offices want you to work until 9:00pm or 7:00pm knocking on doors. Also here's what they don't tell you, 0-10 sales is your base salary but if after training you don't make your sales you get three strikes then your fired. Also they don't explain commission real well. Let's say you got 7 sales in a week which they require 10 after training , and you got 16 renewals then that's like $45 times 16 but what they don't tell you is that you have to make those 10 sales every week in order to get the additional money and if you don't then you just made 16 renewals for the company extra in their pockets but it screws you over. In the winter they lower sales goals every week because they know sales will be lower but not the individual 10 sales per week. Training ends after 1 month so if you figure in the first week it isn't the job for you start applying to other jobs. Also you can't leave the position until 6 months or longer.
