    I worked at Ontario Green Savings full-time

    Pros

    I have to say the people I worked with were the only good part. Everyone was so nice and friendly but we all hated it there

    Cons

    - biggest con; they lie about what they do and who they are as a company, literally door to door sales and telemarketing - Major other con is the compensation; they lie about how much you make. They claim it’s thousands a week and it’s “performance based” I swear people spend more of their own money than they actually make as they offer no base salary. Also they pay their “marketers” minimum wage - even customers call you back and yell at you that we’re a scam (which is true) - they basically sign people up on contracts - they pretend to be super professional but everyone is super young and immature and tell you what you want to hear to pretend it’s legit - also 6 days a week?! It’s not that serious..

    I worked at Ontario Green Savings full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing, this company thrives on ripping off the elderly. Look them up before you apply here.

    Cons

    Worked overtime with no extra pay, they lock consumers into contracts for 10 plus years through misleading sales tactics, don't work here unless you don't mind having a guilty conscience. But also beware once you have worked for them and made sales, your name is stuck to that company for a lifetime. This is your warning.

    I worked at Ontario Green Savings full-time

    Pros

    None, regional managers are douchebags who only care about money, don’t respect their employees and they lie an extreme amount not only to other employees but to their cuddly since they have tons of bad reviews and no one trusts them. The “room for growth” scheme is BS, don’t trust it or you’ll end up losing money. Not sure how the regional manager makes more than all the sales reps combined weekly when he does the same job. And they make a quota for call representatives of how many assessments they have to bring in each day, if they don’t meet quota then we get a termination threat EVERY.SINGLE.MORNING.MEETING... which is unfair since quota is out of our control when we make the same numbers of calls each day but some days people are busy or not answering their phones. Super annoying, and the managers will talk down to you despite their friendly persona which is super fake anyways. Call representatives are just a number to this company, and then when I got promoted to sales I didn’t make any money for the 1.5 weeks and also heard several bad reviews of people not getting their full commission, which is not fair if they’re working 10-12 hours a day 6 or 7 days a week. I don’t know anymore if their products are all they market them out to be, maybe they’re not since the company thrives on lies and the marketers/customer service reps are the only people leaving a good review about their experience. Literally all the call representatives complain about the job and how badly the managers treat us, I don’t blame them though it is the regional manager who sets those dumb rules that we have to follow

    Cons

    Toxic environment, rude managers, unfair pay

    Ontario Green Savings Response

    March 9, 2021HR

    The regional manager has 10 years of experience and manages over 50 sales representatives so his pay is fairly adjusted based on his PERFORMANCE. And that is why we say there is room for growth because anyone can become a regional manager. You were hired for a PERFORMANCE based job so there is naturally a quota attached to it. Now, you got promoted to sales and were not able to reach the PERFORMANCE goals therefore you were let go of. There are over 2000 reviews on Google, surely they can not be all from employees. At this point, it seems like there is a common issue in all your points and that is your individual performance that has resulted in a negative experience. However, we appreciate your biased feedback.
