    I worked at DNE Resources full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - A deep-rooted culture of continuous learning
    - Mentors at every level of the company, with each truly invested in your development
    - Compensation
    - Family culture where efforts don't go unnoticed and favours are returned

    Cons

    - Steep learning curve to grasp the industry dynamics and skills necessary to succeed
    - Coming from a 9-5 job that entailed only ~3-4 hours of solid work/day, this was a shock (but the old place didn't have the play room for breaks)
    - They want and expect you to succeed, so repeated and ongoing disappointments regarding fulfillment of your tasks are addressed in a caring manner at first, but eventually are dealt with swiftly once they perceive the motivation and shared values are no longer present in the individual

    Advice to Management

    - Recognizing that their commitment to a shared code of values can sometimes lead to a suboptimal outcome for them and the company; that is to say, people are different in how they view success and life fulfillment, and mgmt could accept that fully first, clearly layout what they expect second, and not expect the gap between the employee's life-view and mgmt's to change over night (or over years even), then I believe they could go farther in their goal to change the energy industry and develop more talented ambitious individuals along the way.

    I have been working at DNE Resources full-time

    Pros

    You work with people who actually care about you and will not treat you as someone who brings in sales for them. You put in 100% they will give 110% back. Immense growth opportunities.

    Cons

    No cons to bring up yet.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so lenient

    I have been working at DNE Resources full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working here for almost two years and have been through many changes in my personal and professional life. I started as a person with no experience in the energy industry and have now been recently promoted to a managing commercial energy consultant after lots of hard work. They consider everyone family here and help you along as you learn the industry inside out and grow as a professional.

    Cons

    Some people aren't natural at working with the public and that's the only time I have seen some struggle through the process. Personality is one of the most important aspects of working here.

    Advice to Management

    Originally when I started it was hard to excel however they have taken many steps in the past 6 months to make it much more easy to come into this business with no experience and grow quickly in the company.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for you to grow and develop yourself in the energy industry.

    If you can't cut it, some people are quite negative about it. Gotta stay positive with what you do in life.

    Advice to Management

    KEEP IT UP!

    I worked at DNE Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great management team, friendly coworkers

    Cons

    - Door to door sales with purely comission pay (could be pro depends on you)
    - DNE Resources is primarily a staffing company that works under parent company Direct Energy
    - Direct Energy is a horrible energy company, they tell lies to clients that DE has better energy plans but in reality they don't
    - Most clients that you sign up door to door cancel after they do research and so you don't get paid for those clients

    Advice to Management

    - Work for a better employer

    Pros

    Good officer culture
    Clean Kitchen
    Supportive team weather on the residential or commercial side

    A bit more straight forward training on the commercial may be good, if your a good sales person tho you don't need really need it.

    I worked at DNE Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Well the people who worked there when I was there was awesome! It became like a family with the staff Eskimos football game, hanging out and vibing. And the training was really good, pushed me wayyy out of my comfort zone, but in such a good way. I had such low confidence going in an after so much high!

    Cons

    It became stressful very quickly cause your livelihood was dependent on getting a min. About of sales a day to really know if you can pay rent, eat, drive your car. I think there should have been a base pay of even $10/he. So those days where I would get only 1 sale or no sales, I could still have some income for the long 9-10hr days

    Advice to Management

    Jus to see that no everyone was born with that sales bug. Also, if we found a style at the door, not to push your own ways on us! That confused me a lot an I lost tons of sales. Other than that, have more employee get togetherness outside of work!
