How are the career development opportunities at Ontario Green Savings?

Pros

I started with them 6 months ago. Like many people I was not too sure of what the job was all about and decided to give it a shot anyway. I completed my interview and was invited to the 1 day orientation about the company, its products, how it helps the environment, its customers and employees. I had a conversation with a team lead after and got paired up for the training which lasted about 2 weeks and was fully paid. They use what's called a University/Academy to train you on everything before you start working with customers. I learnt how to conduct energy assessments and started to make a well above average pay based on their rewarding compensation plan. 6 months later I have gotten promoted with raise 2 times and have recently started to train others on the job. Overall the company has some ups and downs like every other growing company but seems to be well financed and a friendly workplace. I worked from the same office as the Senior Leaders and the CEO himself. Eventhough I saw remarks about them, here's my personal experience and what I witnessed. The CEO is established and seems to be driven to grow. He does have flashy cars like the other reviews mention but during my employment I see him work 7 days a week. He was the first in the office everyday. Everyone is pleased around him. His bonuses are beyond generous. He pushes everyone to grow and read books. He talks about his struggles in the business in the past 10 years and how with the help of his team he was able to handle then. I witnessed him finish a Harvard diploma and run the company during the pandemic at the same time with huge growth. He has organized a core team of capable individuals that work like clockwork. So ultimately, you will be working with a team of such driven entrepreneurs that you've probably never seen before. This is their competitive advantage.

Cons

As expected with any driven organization, you need to meet high level of excellence in everything you do. There's no room for laziness. Mistakes and errors are normal but lack of work ethic will cause them to coach you out of the company and to a different career.

Advice to Management

Make sure to provide as much training as you can in your teams. Some people can't learn as fast and you should have a slower training period provided for then

What kind of career opportunities exist at Ontario Green Savings?

Pros

The opportunity for growth is phenomenal. I had started as a regular Marketing Representative and within 6 months have worked my way to an assistant office manager position within the company. Their focus on leadership and creating a positive atmosphere is a Gamechanger for me as well. The culture within the company is super supportive, always there to have your back in and outside of work. This opportunity has taken me from knowing nothing about the industry to being an expert and training a team while helping hundreds of homeowners save money on their bills. Wish I would’ve started sooner!

Cons

Hours can be long, can’t think of anything else.

Advice to Management

Keep on doing what you’re doing already.

The opportunity for growth is phenomenal.
