Sales Consultant Intern (Former Employee) – Torrance, CA – May 19, 2017
When this company was in business, they absolutely took care of their interns and sales reps. They insured the knowledge was secured in the new employees before beginning the B2B aspect. I enjoyed the culture and the focus of the company. Awesome place to work!

Canvasser (Former Employee) – Los Angeles County, CA – April 18, 2017
It was a hard first job. Only part time which was fine because I was in school. It was a door to door sale job, talking to home owners and really pushed to get the sale. It was hard working in the freezing cold or burning hot sun and getting yelled at all the time just because we were a solar company. But the pay was phenomenal. For paid hourly and commissions. It was a hard, demanding job but the people I woke with made the job for me. We got along great and really pushed each other to succeed!
Road trips, the pay, my co-workers, over all experience pushed me to become a people person and communicating better
Working in scary neighborhoods alone, or only with two girls. Being chased by dogs and got bit by one.
Appointment Setter (Former Employee) – Orange County, CA – April 4, 2017
Just walked door to door and set appointments. Your average Canvassing job. Drove to new location week by week. Only in orange county. Compensation was good, you just have to be a people person and tough, handle rejection well. If you didn't make appts you wont last.
Operations Assistant (Former Employee) – Torrance, CA – February 23, 2017
After 2 years of loyalty to the company they finally gave me a permanent position with no raise. Departments management was constantly changing. Departments would be completely vanished. Every Holiday season since I was there they did their major lay offs after promising no further jobs where at risk. Customer complaints were poorly resolved
Fun place to work with many opportunities to make more money .
Field Marketing Specialist (Former Employee) – Torrance, CA – November 2, 2016
Great employer who definitely did not hesitate to compensate employees as long as they generate sufficient leads . There was plenty opportunities to grow and make money . Bonuses everywhere just waiting to be made . However , once goals are achieved the employee is expected to maintain his/her production to maintain their "rank" . Part-Time instead of Full Time , need to work up to full time.
Solid Base Pay, Bonuses, Incentives, Energetic and Helpful Supervisors
Part Time, Need to maintain your quota, Inconsistent Sales Market
Canvasser/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Lancaster, CA – November 1, 2016
I worked there for a period of about 8 months and was even a top producer in my region (I know it seems like everyone says that, but I was!). Very unprofessional. From day one we had no formal training and at the time it was either "sink or swim." Very little opportunity to advance and overall communication was terrible. The job ended with the entire region of southern Californian cutting their sales rep and canvassing programs. They did this by bringing us all to one place (not telling us what was going on), confiscating our company material and letting us all go.
Great people and co workers in a company that is going thru some difficult times
IT / Facilities Manager (Current Employee) – Torrance, CA – May 16, 2016
I enjoy working at Verengo, i met great people and learned a lot during my time here, however, the difficult times and hard decisions that the company has to make made me consider looking for opportunities elsewhere.
Great co-workers, flexible schedule, good pay
No longer room for growth, company facing tough decisions ahead
Inside Sales (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – May 2, 2016
This was a good company to work. Very short staffed and would usually work through lunch. Needed to have better systems in place, several balls would be dropped or lost through the processes. right hand and left hand to not talk..
The call center and corp center did not cross communicate well
Permit Runner (Former Employee) – Torrance, CA – April 19, 2016
Verengo is a overall decent company to work for. My immediate co workers made the job bearable to deal with ever day. However being a permit runner you don't really have any co workers, except the few people you see in the morning at the warehouse where you print plans, so if you have issues working alone stay clear of this job. My immediate supervisor was decent, not the worst I've had but certainly not the best. The biggest and most stressful issue I had with Verengo is that every job goes through different departments, and each department is not in the same place. So as a permit runner I would open my laptop in the morning and have (not kidding) 40+ emails about 40+ different jobs awaiting permit approval all in cities spanning about 120+ miles apart in range(you have to drive to all of these). You deal with some pretty nasty people from the call center who have to talk to the customer. You deal with especially nasty "project managers" who are unfamiliar with all the different processes of a solar job and don't realize that things don't just happen in hours because you want them to. All of it really seems to stem from the fact that no one understands the entire process from a customer signing to the finalizing of a project with the city (beginning to end) and the communication gets ridiculous.
Good co workers, average pay
Unorganized, long work hours, stressful, bad communication
ANONYMOUS (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – October 31, 2015
Wrong people in place as managers. Many layoffs. Little to no structure or training. No onsite hr. No drug testing or background check. Long hours. Bonuses taken away. No appreciation no matter how hard you work. No room for advancement.
Free food so continue to work thru your lunch break
Sales (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – October 21, 2015
Company sales have been on the decline and it matches the company culture. When things were fun and vibrant the company sales were through the roof. When the new regime came in, the fun left, as did the growth of the company. Many concerns with the future outlook of this company.
