It’s a call Center has a lot stress level, however there’s plenty support and coaching. The schedule are not easy to be changed once you got assigned. You need to be a multitasking person.
Pros
Training, couching
Cons
Not flexible

The salary is on the lower end of treasury salaries and there is no career advancement at Just Energy. There are no bonuses and low pay raises. People are overworked and micromanaged.
Pros
None
Cons
Overworking employees, Micromanagement

Not the best Salary. They would promise you bonuses and no matter how good you do, you just won't get them. Don't fall for their Six Sigma Green Belt Cash Bonus Program... Also, Some managers are a bunch of pot heads.

Bad place to work specially in operations. Nepotism and old cronyism is the way of life. Most of the junior management is rude, unprofessional and not worthy of their positions. They make people work overtime without any compensation of any kind even when they know the wages are below market.

Just Energy was a rewarding experience in the beginning. I company has great benefits, and amazing incentives. I learned allot about the energy sector here, and it also gave me an appreciation for hard work. Some Management was great up until my last year. Allot changed as the company got bigger. Workplace culture was great but at times stressful.

They require you to work 6-7 days a week from 9am to 9pm. No understanding for needing time to take care of your family or health. Its pressure sales, they advise you to lie to get the client to sign. You must go on a road trip once a month out of town for sales at your own cost, they say you can write off the hotel cost at tax season, however they pay for the hotel and deduct it from your paycheck without having written it is for hotel , it just says "deduction" so the managers get to write off the hotel costs, and you don't get any of the tax breaks you should get as an independent contractor.

Working for this company is a waste of time. They don't offer any training, don't even pay minimum wage and or any travel expenses. Now this business is illegal.

Just Energy was a commission work and they did not have a base payment. For that reason, I did not like working for them. The work was really hard, knowing the products and convincing clients. Despite the hard work and the time put in for work, there was no base salary. Only commission. However, I learned to work hard.

It wasn't bad looking back at it. Commission wasn't the highest, but we got paid hourly and there were bonuses and we got paid weekly, which was nice. Overall I did enjoy having this job.

it was one of the toughest jobs I have ever had, sales is tough and compounded by the walking and weather on daily basis. Hours were very long and worked 6 to 7 days a week.
Pros
great income

long hours, walking, standing and weather

This company is good for the benefits and that's about all. The work and life balance was so off. I would not recommend this company to anyone in my immediate circle.

Got to interact with a variety of people daily. It wasn't always a guaranteed paycheck and there was a lot of travelling as well as long hours across the city
