Work smart and hard and rewards are there
The training course is very thorough and follow up training is given in your area. Appointments are available to you in line with availability you have to work which means it allows flexibility in the hours you work but as with most things in life you won’t become very successful if you only work a couple of days a week. Solar is a growing sector with all of the less reputable companies now fallen by the wayside leaving professional companies such as project solar to lead the market with high quality offerings.

Horrible place to work
Awful company. Treat sales people like dirt.Too many managers all seemingly against the sales people. Never get the recognition for work done, always taking money from sales people. DO NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY.
Sales Consultant - Full Time in Burton-On-Trent, Staffordshire
BEWARE! ‘Newbies’ work 7 days a week and get all the rubbish! appointments are well screened and graded with the ‘favourite inner-circle’ reps earning 6 figure incomes with well cherry picked leads.
The Masses of new agents who come and go all the time, because they get loads of ‘run-abouts’ often travelling hundreds of miles a day for ‘quote only’ calls including sat/sun. PS use neebees for warming up only, and will phone afterwards offering a much more cheaper price cutting out the sales person commission. Lots of promises and lies, don’t work for these even if you think you’re a great salesman, because that what they rely on.
Dance to their tune, or else!
Strong points: Lots of little benefits such as fruit, free tea & coffee, the salary is fine, some colleagues are a delight to work with, nice office environment.
Low points: Terrible culture regarding those who have been working with the company a long time, propensity to throw other people to the sharks or not acknowledge contribution if it helps with their own self-promotion. Awful lines of communication and senior management who refuse to accept that problems with the organisation start with them. A lot of the newer recruits don't last, due to the realisation that PSUK say the right things but don't actually deliver on them. The bonus scheme is terrible and not communicated accurately during the interview process or by any management, it's loosely based on a bell curve which then becomes a popularity / political choice.
This isn't the place to work if you want to contribute, with reward! If however you are politically savvy, have little conscience or loyalty to your fellow staff and are comfortable navigating your way in such an environment then it's absolutely fine.
Good luck to you.

Great Job Poor Management.
The quality and distance of leads was poor (not always)
The majority of management were encouraging and easy to approach. unfortunately mine was not.
