Fun work environment, horrible pay though.
Inside Energy Consultant - Team Lead (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – June 7, 2016
I currently work here at SolarCity at the town square office. The company is great, I believe in the CEO and the direction he is taking the company; however the inside sales management is terrible. The company has a 120% attrition rate for Inside Sales which means they are firing more people than they are hiring. I personally like what I do but I am leaving due to the horrible pay and sales process.
The pay is $11.74/hr + unlimited commission. You are paid commission when the jobs are installed which could take anywhere from 3-7 months. So if you're new and don't have a pipeline built up, be prepared to live off of top ramen and $850/ bi-weekly maybe less.
You must meet certain metrics to keep your job, as long as you can meet these metrics you have the privilege of staying with the company. If not, then they will walk you out quicker than you can say do you want solar.
This job is good for those who are single and need more sales experience, but if you have a family, be careful if you don't have much money saved up.
True earning potential is around 35 - 55k a year. And the 55k is if you come in, bust your a** every month. There is no work life balance here, this company is the worse I have ever worked at in regards to work life balance.
I hope this helps.
Benefits are good, nice office and nice break room.
Low pay, no job security, management isn't up to par.
