Productive and Intuitive Company

This company provided great products and helped families, and business's all around California. I would highly recommend not only the products but the company as a whole to be employed at.

Pros

Good money

Cons

Long Travel

It was fun for a while

Each day began with just punching in and having your box. Don't you dare move around while in those robo calls. Each day would be an outbound call to schedule those lovely enough with homes to have their homes modified with solar. They had the possibility of lower costs. The task was to get an opening in the schedule of the customer to have a tech come and evaluate the structure and if it could be modified. The hard days would and could be, when you haven't gotten a single person open enough to have your tech come out. It could be very discouraging.

Pros

Plenty of hours having engaging conversations. LONG

Cons

Hearing the ramblings of a mad person who wastes time

Small but Dedicated Solar PV Company

A very competent Solar PV contractor backed by a leading Roofing Company, with so much potential to expand their share of the evolving Solar Market outside of Roof Top Installations.

A good workplace with great flexibility

A good work environment and great workplace culture, I definately learned a lot about solar equipment and support for the equipment. The flexibility is great at the company.

High pace, fun, competitive

A1 was a very well maintained business that gives all its employees the opportunity to grow within the company. It is a great place to work and grow yourself in sales and customer service

Money was not the problem it was poor management

Typical day at work as stressful for each department. I liked most of my coworkers but management wasn't properly trained. Management acted off of personal emotions oppose to work ethics.

It's a cloak and dagger

All appointments and schedules were to get those without solar panels to have them. They will hire anyone off the streets, sometimes good, sometimes bad. They change their name to something new to reach and touch homeowners without solar

Pros

It was great to speak to folks

Cons

No real commitment to customer service

Ok company

Ok company to work for. Their lack of customer appreciation is alarming. Money over everything seemed to drive the company. Cant trust a company like this.

love to talk on the phone??? this ones for you!!!

you sit all day at a computer taking cold calls over and over. If you can handle being hung up on and at times being cussed at and called every name in the book then you will do just fine here.

Pros

easy job

Cons

on the phone all day
Was this review helpful?

It was desk work.

A typical work day here means answering phones. It was busy as ever on the weekends to make the deadlines of meeting the schedules that are to be conducted. Management did their part in assisting with customers that have questions or inquires. Everyone would work as a team and work diligently to meet schedule in customers. You know you are helping customers with scheduling them in to receive information on solar energy

Pros

Excellent breakroom

Cons

so many calls and so much stress to meet goals

HPC Bonus, Cash Bonus, Commission Bonus

Cons

They hire anybody which can be a bad thing sometimes

Very Scammy Company

I worked here for six months and at the beginning it sounded great and I was making pretty good money but soon found out I was completely overcharging my clients!

Pros

Pay, good cause

Cons

Overcharging clients, dishonesty in sales process

Independent Contractor

Presentation of photovoltaic (PV) solar systems to homeowners. One call sales closer. Follow through with customer; from permitting, financing, to complete instillation.

Pros

Independent

Cons

Not enough work to live on.
Was this review helpful?

The atmosphere was passive, everyone got along.

This job gave you a chance to have a flexible schedule. Everyone got along just fine. My manager was understanding and open minded. I enjoyed the coworkers and how everyone got along just fine. However, I feel as though the type of work I was providing deserved a higher pay.

Pros

environment

Cons

low pay
