Energy Consultant (Former Employee), Rockford, ILMarch 2, 2015
Pros: work by yourself.
Cons: traveling away from home for months to years.
The job is what you make of it. After training you are given your own area to work, no boss over your shoulder, stickily self motivated

Great environment, great company!
HOME ENERGY CONSULTANT (Current Employee), BEAVERCREEK, OHJanuary 15, 2015
A typical day at work would be me knocking on doors in the area I live in, educating customers on how to read their energy bills, and compare the rates to see if I can lower the cost for them. It was a big eye opener for me as I worked for them due to the fact that I, like the majority, had no idea how to read energy bills. The job itself is not one for everyone. You have to stay positive when you are getting rejected, and even more when you hit a neighborhood where nobody is home. The encouraging aspect is obviously when you enroll someone, or taking a step further and getting referrals from those customers. My team lead and manager were always supportive, giving suggestions, walking in the field with me, and meeting me in the office to better my skills. The office as a whole was filled with energetic and friendly coworkers. Obviously the hardest part in working for an energy company is the rejection. I had to meet a quota which can be very stressful. The best part of the job was being able to meet all types of people and learning how to mold my conversation to match theirs.

A Day In The Life
Home Energy Consultant (Current Employee), cranberry paNovember 11, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: structure, direction, vision. untrustworthyness
A typical day at work includes travel to a neighborhood and knock door to door selling home energy products. We are selling mostly utility savings such as gas and electric. We also sell Utility line protection, and HVAC protection plans.

I learned the finesse side of sales, when to push when not to push. How to close, how to be personable, and what it takes to be a salesman.

I would say my direct supervisor has been great but overall management from corporate could use some tending to. The main reason why I'm searching for new employment is because I feel that we were pushed into a brand new untested market without vision or direction. All any employee asks for is that the people in charge take care of the employees and myself along with other employees feel that there is serious lack in that department. We no longer know who the enemy is, and that is a problem.

My co-workers are the reason I stayed with the company this long. We all know how terrible things have been for the past few months, yet we continue to motivate each other to do the very best we can. I am truly going to miss those people.

The hardest part of the job has been the continuous downward spiral of production from our branch.

The most enjoyable part of the job is the ability to meet new people on a daily basis and the freedom.

Fun job at times but...
Sales Represenative (Former Employee), Cleveland, OHAugust 21, 2014
The people that work there are easy to get along with but management and organization skills are lacking severely. The hardest part of the job is not knowing whether or not your deals will go through and whether or not your going to get paid on them. Also, not knowing how much you're going to get paid' if it is approved, during the time of the deal being made. The most enjoyable part of the job is travelling to different cities and meeting new and interesting people.

fun sales job
Independent Contractor (Current Employee), Cleveland, OHSeptember 17, 2013
Pros: traveling to different cities.
Cons: there is no hourly pay straight commission.
A typical day at work just consist me talking to residence in different cities in the state of ohio about lowering cost on their utilities every day is different so you don't know how your day will go some days better than others. What I learned from working here is maintaining a positive attitude no matter what the day may bring and just to keep working. The most enjoyable thing about my job is just to talk to different people and staying busy it makes the day go fast. The hardest part about my job is that I'm walking all day door to door and working in all type of weather all year long.

Door to door sales (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAMay 6, 2013
Pros: good money and helps you interact better with people
Cons: sometimes you dont make nothing
Working at IGS Energy is really not a complicated job. You basically go to people houses to try to convince them to lower they gas bill and if they accept you get paid for that person which is 20.00 dollars a person.
