    I worked at Genius Energy Solutions full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere and great people to work with, I enjoyed coming into work every day. They provided full support and training to me to be making over 1k a week.

    Cons

    Nothing negative to say, you get out of this job the effort you put into it!

    Pros

    Every day is different, always a challenge but great help and support and met loads of amazing people. Good paychecks and loved the awards parties.

    Cons

    Does take 1-2 weeks to start making good progress but I guess that’s like any job. If you put the effort in, you’ll definitely get good at making sales.

    I worked at Genius Energy Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Met the most amazing people!

    Cons

    The whole job advert is a complete lie!!!! They say you will earn $1095 a week and you don’t earn even half of that. It’s nothing like a ‘google environment’ you’re rushed in and out of the office every morning. There’s no job security, we were told if we don’t knock 150 doors a day or get 60 contacts we would be sacked unless we had a good attitude which was nearly impossible in this job. They are just taking advantage of back packers and young people, DO NOT WORK HERE

    I worked at Genius Energy Solutions for less than a year

    Pros

    Recruiter tell us that on average we will make 15-20 sales/week. And there are people who managed to sell 30/week. I don’t know how much that’s true. Perhaps I hVent knocked enough doors.

    Cons

    Job description is vague. Can you at least tell us that we are going to engage in direct sales

    Pros

    you some good people and there is free 50+ sunscreen in the van

    Cons

    - Loong work days, 10+ hours. where you walk around by yourself 8 hours knocking on doors - you pay for everything yourself, lending of ipad police report and food. - you are getting payed under minimum wage because you are an independent contractor. - You waste your time wilst getting nothing in return. - If you make i sale, you are far from asured getting payed for it. - The management are constantly talking about how much they are and how good their life is.

    Pros

    Really good pay Great atmosphere Unbelievable people Fun Rewarding Put the effort in and your weekly pay check will speak for itself. I’ve never met such a good bunch of people.

    Cons

    The only downside is the people who bash it before they even try it.

    I worked at Genius Energy Solutions full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Genius Direct helped me save money for 6 months then i could carry on travelling. I was so broke when i arrived in melbourne and thought i was going to have to head back to Holland earlier than expected. I was only going to stay for 2 months once I got the job but changed my travel plans to make as much money as possible. i wish i could have stayed for longer but needed to complete my 88 days farm work. I will be returning on my 2nd year visa later on in the year and i hope i can join the team again. I learned loads in the time i was working here and i just can't believe why anyone would leave a negative review on here. i loved my team manager and we had drinks together as a team pretty much every weekend. can't wait to be back.... hope the friday night football is still going strong

    Cons

    no negatives at all - loved everything

    Pros

    Genius Direct had a fun, positive energy around it. All the managers at Genius Direct made working there an enjoyable experience. Genius Direct also created a great social life and work experience with everyone getting together on the weekend for activities and Team nights out. Genius Direct is a great place to both start and further your career in sales or management with constant support and guidance. Genius Direct is the ideal job for anyone with travelling plans who wants to save up some money for their later or travels and is even great for residents of Melbourne who just want to meet new people and expand their skillsets in sales, managment or business. Genius Direct never felt like work for me as the people I met there were amazing and the work I did was genuinely rewarding. I was sad to finally say goodbye to Genius Direct once I had to move on and would 100% return to Genius Direct without any hesitation and would recommend Genius Direct to any travellers or Melbourne Residents!

    Cons

    None! Loved every minute of it!

    I worked at Genius Energy Solutions full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Energetic atmosphere (like most salesjobs)

    Cons

    - You walk around by yourself all day long, knocking doors which is really demotivating and depressing. - You get promised loads of money and beautiful things, but nothing ever happens (EVERYBODY can be a team leader, but nobody ever does) - They put loads of pressure on you. - You get an activity bonus of 300$ a week, which is basically nothing, just about enough to pay your rent. - Your bonusses don't start coming in until 4 weeks after you've started, and even though they promise you a 1000$ paychecks, nobody actually gets those. - If you quit or get fired, you have to wait 60 days until you get the rest of your bonusses, but you have no insight in your sales whatsoever. - Management are fake fake fake people. - You actually have to PAY them to use their iPad to make sales. - Loads of people leave the job, every 3 weeks their staff is completely renewed.
