Does Ontario Green Savings offer disability insurance?

Pros

this job is good for you if you are a highschooler and are in for a temporary job and don't care about the work environment

Cons

I don't even know where to start but I thought really hard about writing the review and came to the conclusion that not writing one (honest review) would be unfair to anyone who might want to work here. 95% of the positive reviews that you see here, including the one I had written a few months ago, unfortunately, were all written involuntarily during the job, in the presence of the management including HR. The management basically made all the employees write positive notes about the workplace so it can neutralize, if not increase the positive rating of the company. They even asked us to email the screenshot for confirmation. They do not pay on time. I had to wait two weeks to get my first paycheque and four weeks for the rest of the weeks I worked. The job is commission based and there is no proper established way to keep a track of commissions earned. It's all word of mouth. The commission is not included in the paycheque, neither is it paid in cash but rather in form of a prepaid Visa card. Was never paid commission because the management decided to keep it with them I guess and told me that it was already paid to me, which couldn't be far from the truth. When I explained it to HR, along with my experience, they said they couldn't do anything about it. All they did was give a run around just to pay what they owe their employees. I am surprised no one has reported their unethical business practices yet. Working for another well-known company in the same capacity has opened my eyes to what ethical business practice(s) is and just how important the role of Human Resource is in any company to ensure the employees working there are not mistreated. The management tries its best to portray that they are a fun-loving company that treats everyone equally but that is far from the truth. The senior sales rep, management, and managers have their favorites and would always favor them no matter what. There are clear cliques and no one would even try to make you a part of their conversation. The work environment is unsafe. Although the sales representatives, making outbound calls are classified as essential workers, there is only one room in the office where everyone (20-30 people) is asked to cramp in to make sales calls and no one cares about social distancing or wearing a mask as no one believes in COVID. Their reasoning is that because no one close to them has had covid, then it must no be real and is fake news. A high rate of turn over- The employees leave almost right away or within two to three weeks of being hired, or when they realize the company is not worth working for which is why they are almost always hiring people- a problem that the company's management has admitted to themselves, not once but on numerous occasions. The majority of the people who work there are between the ages of 18-21, basically, kids in high school transitioning to go for higher education or finding a proper job, who want to make quick money. Maybe this job is good for them but if you want to work with a company long-term that pays benefits, proper wages for hard work, and cares about their employees, then this place is not for you. For the customers- this company is a scam and the field representatives (with an exception of one or two people) would do anything they can to get the sale and lock the contract with you. I overheard a senior representative tell a bunch of people rather proudly that an elderly customer asked them if the contract can be canceled at any time, and they responded with an affirmation. Which is untrue. There are fees that must be paid if the contract is canceled before its date. I question their business model, their work ethic, and lack of transparency not just for the employees but for the customers as well.

Advice to Management

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.
