American Solar Direct - Every terrible thing you've read is true.
Everything posted here that is positive? All done by recruiters. I used to work here. I know this company's slimy tactics all too well. Here is the truth about being a Solar Consultant with American Scam-Solar Direct:
Endless walking, knocking door to book, being attacked by dogs, booking appointments for team leaders to make money on while you make less than a McDonald's employee. No base pay after 30 days, yet they expect you to jump with they say. Nothing I was sold on in my interview by the recruiter was possible. None of it. They make it seem soooooooo easy, but in reality it is next-to-impossible to succeed. IMPORTANT DETAIL: DO NOT BELIEVE what the recruiters say about "training" and "mentoring" in the fake interview (NOTE: if you show up, you got the job. It's that simple. Do not believe the way the recruiters try and make it seem like you're actually being evaluated. Are you alive? Do you breathe? Then you're hired! Some of the guys in my training class could barely put a sentence together...LOL). Anyway, none of this "field training" happens. You are thrown in the field and told to sink or swim. This company is the slum of the solar industry, and is laughed at by SolarCity, Verengo, Sun Run, etc. If you're at ASD? You aren't good enough for those other companies. Any review here that isn't scathing is a plant. Believe it. If Google led you here, then read this and believe every word of it. This company got in trouble with the labor board for a reason. They have a 2.5 star rating on Glass Door (all positives there are plants, too) for a reason - they're despicable and shameless.
Consider yourselves warned: No matter what the recruiters or sales managers tell you, this multi-level pyramid scam. You will not make money. One more time: YOU WILL NOT MAKE MONEY. Okay? The reviews here, the positive ones? They'd solicit us to write them in meetings. And guess what? All of these are from people at the top of the pyramid, or who've been with this crappy company for 3+ years or work in the corporate HQ. Don't believe their feedback indicates what your experience will be.
ASD, why don't you be honest about your little scam? You run a pyramid scheme. This place is a revolving door. In my training class of over 10 people, 3 were left after one week. We were all gone in side a month. It's a joke. They use people. Don't let them use you.
Reason of review: Bad quality.
