The days were full of stress as a manager. Process are to created and the company grew very quickly. I do believe that they did not acquire the correct leaders for growth.

Don't do it
Inspection (Former Employee) –  HanoverMarch 8, 2018
The only good thing that came out of this job was the friends that I made. The management sucks. There is no communication between anyone. No one really knows what going on inside or out.

Pay

Official response from Trinity Solar
March 29, 2018

Thank you for the response and I’m sorry your time at Trinity did not work out.

In any successful organization, appropriate communication is a critical success factor. Not every employee will know everything about the business. Nonetheless, we hold weekly meetings with the managers to discuss the status of the business and a monthly town hall where everyone is invited to review past company performance, upcoming business challenges and goals, and company events. In those meetings, all employees are encouraged to ask any questions and voice any concerns they have. We are generally quite transparent about the company and the direction we are headed. Management tracks business performance through a data-driven approach while monitoring employee relations through multiple channels including management reviews, customer reviews, and 3rd party stakeholder reviews.

We wish you the best in working in an environment more suitable to your needs.

Over worked, Underpaid
Account Specialist III (Former Employee) –  Wall, NJFebruary 26, 2018
Company is mismanaged. They hire anyone. They hire uneducated highschoolers and try to boost their sales. Very greedy company. They do not want to pay. They are a cultlike institution that do not want you to take breaks or lunch. Would not recommend working for them. They allow men to be inappropriate with women and only suspend them, then give the man his job back with a demotion. They do not like honestly.
Nothing positive to say.
Pros
The buy lunch, big whoop!
Cons
poorly managed

Life of Outreach Representative
Outreach Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Hanover, MDFebruary 14, 2018
I have to say Trinity was the first job were I was treated as family. When they say they are family based company, they are! A typical day is driving to the office(for me that means a long ways away) and going to the daily meeting. You will go over yesterday numbers, practice your pitch(you are expected to recite the pitch in front of peers), learn sales training, team building game, hear a motivational speech, and goals for the day. After the meeting you will need to wait for assigned area. You should be assigned area after 3 days to a week. (You need to feel like you spoke to as many homeowners as you possibly could and one way to keep track is the sales apps Trinity provides and/or tally counter). So after you get assigned territory you may go eat lunch with colleagues or go straight into territory. While out in territory you're obligated to get out and create as many conversations you can to generate as many leads as you can. This is where lots of us get stuck. You need to have a strong mindset. We are met with lots of objections and rejections day after day. You don't make money unless you generate leads that turn to opportunities for sales consultants. Sometimes you don't have control over the lead not turning to an opportunity. Sometimes this job is very rewarding but other times it can be very hard. I enjoyed my managers and colleagues. They made this fun but I learned sales wasn't for me and that is okay. Its also hard because we are made to believe if you do everything right you will move up in the company. I watched many people go above and beyond there duties and  more... never promoted to manager roles when they deserved it but was still considered a leader. So there is a lot of pros and cons to "door to door" knocking. Do you have what it takes?  less
Pros
Family based company, Self Development, Accountability, Management and Higher ups at Corporate are there when you need them
Cons
Door to Door knocking, 6 days a week, 12-14 hours away from home, Commission Pay with no compensation for hours worked

You get what you give.
Outreach Marketing (Former Employee) –  Hanover, MDFebruary 8, 2018
I cannot speak ill of Trinity. The essence of compensation is commission. You will not eat if you so not work. Also, they made it a mission to self evaluate to improve performance.

Overpromise and underdeliver
Solar Sales Consultant (Current Employee) –  Ronkonkoma, NYJanuary 15, 2018
As a sales person, you can only make the desired commission by overcharging your customer than the industry average. Yes the company is profitable but I don't believe it should be built on this type of sale technique. Meanwhile, the communications among teams are poorly executed so each project takes longer to complete and is more likely to experience issues. Running sales leads by the company will subject you to driving around in your own car while only getting 1/3 of success (no shows, cancellations).
Pros
Flexible work schedule and great for "true" salespeople
Cons
Project execution, software inefficiency, lack of communications

Decent work environment but some managers are concerned with fire employees in picking up their back commission
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Cheshire, CTDecember 8, 2017
Decent work environment but some managers are concerned with fire employees in picking up their back commission. It’s a good environment to grow in the right position . All participants must be time oriented and understand that the schedule is extremely important

The Right Solar
Sales and Customer Support Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Hammonton, NJNovember 26, 2017
Trinity is a great place to work. It is the worlds largest privately owned solar company. They offer plenty of room for advancement. The only thing is, you have to have drive to work in sales for this company, and be able to self motivate. If you have that, the sky is the limit with this company.

Great Company to work for. Probably one of the best.
Management (Current Employee) –  Upstate NYNovember 19, 2017
Great Company to work for. Probably one of the best. Just make sure you are in a profitable market. If you're in a profitable market, the sky is the limit on income and opportunity. Don't even consider going to market where there are low utility rates.
Pros
Amazing opportunity
Cons
None really.
