Great company culture , incentives are unbelievable. The top dogs in the company are by far the most humble, caring guys the real deal! They will come in from out of town to visit and they sit in the crowd like the rest of us. No special treatment! And they all knock doors still! Amazing people to work for! When any employees bring up any concerns suggestions they listen and implement a new system with a meet you in the middle type solution! No other company I’ve worked for has ever really listened and made changes. Training is great, with the exception of a few minor tweaks or a bit of fine tuning it’s an amazing company to work for! The opportunity to create generational wealth is there immediately when you start and it’s very attainable! Again they spare no expense for incentives for top performers! Like all expenses paid trips to exotic places, luxury seats at sporting events you name it!

Great people, fun environment. Long mental days

Must be a person that can deal with being ignored and days full of no’s. Management cares a bunch about their employees and feels very welcoming but the job gets old very quickly.

Great opportunities

It’s worth it, they pay for gas and mileage and have nearly unbeatable benefits. They do over look you for promotions though, and the market is going to shrink.

Toxic workplace

They don’t care about you as a person. When you are going through things or have kids they won’t help you in anyway just replace you the first chance they get

Pros

Healthcare

Cons

Everything

If you have social anxiety, this job is NOT for you

I worked as a Brand Ambassador and honestly the job was NOT for me. We daily huddles that went over how many appointments were made for solar consultations. When feeling frustrated and unhappy, we were told to basically suck it up and that you cannot have a bad day. It's all a numbers game when working for this company. Also we are approaching people in stores as they're shopping or leaving, so it can be pretty nerve wrecking.

Cons

Standing majority of the day, numbers game, approaching people that don't want to be approached

Overall good company

Look to be real. This company is good. You work your own hours your your own boss you can make so much money. You just gotta be mentall prepared to get rejections from these people who dont want solar. If you apply I say stay commited and you'll win man ask a lot of questions too always be motivated for that money cause mannnn you make a lot with a sale.

Pros

Motivational

Cons

Hard work

Managers were weak

The management is looking to hire as many salesmen that they can and flood the market. They don’t care about you at all. I wouldn’t waste my time here. Call Summit Energy.

Pros

Vermont is hot

Cons

Managers stink

Money, leadership

Cons

Stressful

An Eh Experience

Basically your going door to door; going off luck if the individual is even interested. There is no base pay, only commission which honestly sucks, specially if you’ve been standing outside for 10 hours

Good pay, tough market

Sunrun is a decent company to work for. The pay is great as long as you can get out there and find deals. The reviews and horror stories are against you when you are selling solar so you really gotta put in some effort to get one customer.

Good company to work for with excellent benefits

I worked at Sunrun for 8 years it was a great place to work even with all the changes it went through over the years. I would recommend anyone to work at Sunrun as they have some of the best benefits I have ever seen.

Awesome team, teamwork and manager support!

I’m rather new to Sunrun but not to sales. From the extremely thorough training, to a phenomenal team, support, and manager. I feel like part of the family. I love how everyone works together and supports each other. Looking forward to a very long career here!
