PV Solar Installer (Current Employee), Morgan Hill, CAOctober 28, 2014
Pros: comission pay
Cons: hot days long hours
I arrive at the warehouse at six a.m. and load up the material needed for our jobsite. My crew and I leave to the jobsite around 6:45am. We then unload materials and observe the plan and layout, then begin and finish installation. Lastly pack up our tools, head back to the warehouse, and clean out the truck for the next days job.

General Laborer/Machine Operator AZCR Staffing (Former Employee), Phoenix AZ, ArizonaOctober 2, 2014
Friendly environment with room for advancement if self applied. The co workers were good people who liked to help rookies so they say succeed. My manager was a fair guy, only get upset if absolutely need be. I learned how to assemble and break down solar equipment and electrical boxes, also what it takes to put solar paneling on houses and commercial – more... buildings. – less

Fun and challenging job!
Direct Energy Consultant (Current Employee), Camarillo, CAJune 25, 2014
Pros: great company and benifits
Cons: long commute
This job definitely pushed me to be a better person all the way around and really pushed me to see my inner-potential. I loved interacting with new faces everyday and being out and about in the open air. It did require allot of time and dedication, but it paid off and taught me so much about myself!

Company has no age diversity in the work environment
Regional PV Designer (Former Employee), Cranbury, NJJune 19, 2014
My experience was not so good. The upper level management lack social skills beyond their own age group. Only one style of learning and communication is acceptable, Solarcity style.
I think they are Google wanna be's
I learned the hard way to never contribute creatively. The work processes were very ridged.

I loved going to work everyday. The people I worked with were great too. The only thing I didn't like was after 3 months I was still with the temp agency and needed more stability.

Rough Go...
Home Energy Efficiency and Solar Sales (Former Employee), Bend, ORMarch 8, 2014
Pros: tons of growth
Cons: see below
This company is run like ten-year olds run a lemonade stand. I started out in one division which was discontinued a year later with no notice. I was encouraged to relocate to another city within a different division. I did. After consistent and substantial growth there, they pulled out of the city four months later because it didn't fit their corporate – more... vision.I was asked to move back, which I declined. The corporate culture shifted radically when they went public. Like MLMs? Love GlenGarry GlenRoss? You'll love working for SolarCity. – less

Nasty Manager with employees kissing up to him.
Junior PV Installer (Former Employee), Elmsford, NYFebruary 20, 2014
Pros: incentives such as extra money, work saturdays, clothes, benefits.
Cons: nasty boss, nasty employees, too much crew leads
The Manager and employees treated me poorly just to keep their jobs. If I had continued, I would have to kiss up to the boss. This occurred because I was having trouble going on a 40 degree pitched roof and too much tasks for too little pay. The employees were telling the boss behind my back about my performance. Why? To get them the benefit of blaming – more... others. – less

Warehouse Clerk (Former Employee), Portland, ORFebruary 18, 2014
A day on the job here would consist of picking orders for next day jobs in a timely and accurate manner. Keeping product and facility clean. Work vans come back from the job site and would be full of product that would need to be put back in proper locations.
