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.
