Job advertisement very misleading
Sales associate retail (Former Employee) –  Sarnia, ON9 November 2017
Pay scale is strictly commission based, fine in Toronto and larger markets but basically volunteer work in smaller poorer cities. Job ad listed salary, but commission for the job in the retail level is very very poor and is a complete waste of time. Basically in order to make any sort of pay at the lowest level you would have to take peoples information randomly even if they weren’t interested in solar and then this in turn would waste the time of the mid level associates as they would have to then follow up with these people, and are only paid if it leads to an actual home appointment.
I would suggest that the company amends their ad to reflect the fact that even at basic levels it is commission only, and strongly suggest they look very hard at how they do business in non gta cities as this will certainly lead to HIGH turnover and horrible customer experiences. Let’s be honest, how many people would be willing to answer questions and provide proper customer service for a measly $10 if they are paid at all?

Spring board for entrepreneurs with an engaging learning curve
Senior Broker (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON14 August 2017
Sales here is not for those that like the typical work/corporate structure. It is for those that want to be paid what they are worth, not what others deem them to be worth. A typical day at SBC is all about being accountable to yourself. Need to make more calls? More follow-ups? Ask for coaching? It's on you to initiate. Good thing is, when you ask, you will receive at SBC. The culture is based on growth and support from within the team. This is a necessity since the solar industry in Canada is consistently changing which forces us to learn and adapt accordingly. The hardest part of the job is detaching your emotions as you are scaling up your pay cheque. Going from 3 figures in 2 weeks, to 4 figures, to 5 figures isn't for the weak. It is for the go-getters; the ones that want to not only make a difference in the world by shaping our electricity infrastructure in the country, but also want to learn key lessons of successful entrepreneurship and making the money that comes with it.
Pros
colleagues, free lunches, ping pong, foosball
Cons
long hours, no excuses, a lot of testosterone
