Sales Rep (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – June 23, 2016
walk around town and to get people to lock in a flat rate on their ulitity bill. I learned that not every job is a good job. Mangement was poor. I worked alone so i didnt even see my co workers like that. The hardest part of the job was getting 50 - 100 doors slammed in your face daily.
Marketing and Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Warren, MI – June 2, 2016
Going door-to-door you never know what to expect. Everyday was an adventure. I learned to deal with different types of people as well as every situation is different and you have to learn to adjust. What works for one person may not work for the next so I learned to read my audience. The management team was actually really cool and understanding to life situations. My co-workers was like family. The hardest part of the job was working in unpleasant weather conditions. The most enjoyable part was talking to new people everyday.
Good pay, working outside, and great work environment
Very long hours, getting to work early and making it home late
Customer Service Retention Representative (Former Employee) – Bingham Farms, MI – May 6, 2016
This company has TERRIBLE management. The communication is lacking terribly. If you make mistakes you are chastised for it. Management walks around on their cell phones, eat at their desk and gossip. There's suppose to be a no cell phone environment. But management does what they want. Management plays favorite! If you are not a yes person you are a target. You have management gossping on the floor about personal issues, management messing around with each other The best part of the job was my coworkers that is is it. This was by far the worst company I've ever worked for. If you're desperate for a job this is the place for you. I say get paid for the 8 weeks training but PLEASE find something else!! You will be miserable working here!! I promise you that!!!!!!!!!
no weekends, great coworkers, 9-5 shift, occasional free lunch and snacks
Poor management, lack of communication, team leaders does not suuport their team
Independent Contractor (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 10, 2016
I would not refer anyone to this job. They want you to work and don't pay. I payed for my traveling, and lunch. they just give you a location and your on your own from there. Knocking on peoples doors for signatures in the freezing cold. They don't appreciate their workers at all.
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Bingham Farms, MI – March 9, 2016
Assisted residential and commercial customers with inquiries regarding their natural gas and electricity bills. I was later promoted to a recruiting position where I was responsible for bringing in potential candidates for employment.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – February 26, 2016
I enjoy being able to assist customer's with their needs. Taking more than 100 calls a day makes time fly very fast. I enjoy working with my team members, they are always respectful and treat you like family.
The people who run the company are relatively nice, but the people they hire are very unprofessional and not educated at all. I worked with them for 3 days and that was more than enough time to realize I had made a HUGE mistake. The girls were at each other's necks. Not to mention you ride in broken down vehicles with random people to far away locations where you walk the neighborhoods asking people to sign up. You are gone from 9 am to 9 pm every single day!
One would work twelve plus hours when working with the rest of the team. A typical day consisted of role play from 8:00 to 11:00. Then a reward from the day before with a set goal listed on the board along with the Days competition (money for a certain amount of sells). Next we would get in the Car and head to whatever town we were scheduled to be in. we would Get out of the van and try to get at least 4 sells from 12:00 to 2. Lunch around 3 or 4. back to work till 10:00PM. I learned to not expect much from coworkers because they will let you down on purpose when at a commission based job. They will drop you off in areas they know wont want the assistance. The head of the building I worked at was a pretty good person, he was influential and a respectful man. The hardest part of the job was waiting for the commission to come, because I was homeless and couldn't afford to eat throughout the day. 8 hours on your feed and 12 hours with no food can get very hard. A few of the older women that were mothers offered to help some times but I didn't want to accept often. The most enjoyable part of the job was finding the good people and joking with them on the way up the road and the way back. A few male co-workers were so rude to the females, it disgusted me and I resigned. Another thing that I didn't like is that the company did not provide the transportation. The drivers weren't paid to drive and often didn't drive so well. It got pretty stressful at times depending on the driver. Edit review
Good opportunity to make money. the chance to work solo
