Featured Review
"Great company"Oct 20, 2020

Former Employee - Retail Sales Advisor

I worked at Sunrun full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great company and coworkers, friendly environment.

Cons

Must be in good physical shape.

Former Employee - Solar Performance Specialist

I worked at Vivint Solar full-time

Pros

It's easy to get a job here and it's a positive work environment.

Cons

It didn't feel like a honest company. They take short cuts to have more customers but not take good care of the customers there. Services would take forever and people would be stuck in the process... for a long time.
