    "Former Telesales Consultant in Melbourne, Australia"

    5.0
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Telesales Consultant in Melbourne
    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    This review is for the energy company in Australia...not the PR firm. -The company is definitely always looking to get feedback from its employees and offers a very fun environment for the sales staff. -Cool break room with FOOSEBALL (I got really good), massage chairs, bean bag chairs -Pandora playing in the background, you can change the music whenever you want -A good base salary and a killer commission structure (by the end of my time there, I was making more in commissions per week than my actual base!) -Fun, young co-workers from all around the world -Good for travellers on a working holiday visa -Lots of employee events (with an open bar), including a big annual formal event -Smart casual dress: pretty much every day is Casual Friday -You're selling a good product... Red is extremely competitive. You can feel confident about helping people save money.

    Cons

    -This goes without saying but telemarketing is challenging... if you have the guts to tough through the beginning stages, you'll get rewarded big time as your managers put more trust in you (and give you better warmer leads) -The hours can be a pro and a con.. 11:30am-7:30pm means you can go out for drinks on a weekday but it also feels like much of your day is eaten up -High turnover. You'll say goodbye to your colleagues a lot.

    "Not for the ambitious"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Positive Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Performance recognition (Red Awards) - Kitchen cleaned by hired cleaners throughout the day - Massage chairs - Great hand dryers by Dyson in the toilets. - Bonus twice a year depending on personal and company performance! - Career progression possible from the very bottom.

    Cons

    - Terrible building. It is a re-furbished former warehouse, with no natural light anywhere unless you are upstairs (10% of the staff) or very very few available windows. - Open space with no subdivide between different teams or departments, with everyone located almost entirely on one floor. It really feels like you are at a train station or a chicken farm. - Location is not so great either. Parking can also be a total nightmare. - Snowy Hydro is the real boss. - Total acceptance that they are owned by Snowy Hydro and as such acts as a child company for the 'big boys' lacking drive and motivation to innovate and drive the business further. - They can be 100% Australian owned but a large portion of workers are seasonal immigrants at the call centres. (UK) Also, developers are based in New Zealand?!? - Large gossip culture between co-workers, can lead to back-stab due to a very lax atmosphere and the persona of people (mostly no business attire, casual smart, although singlets and shorts seem to be OK for some) - Have to call up a company nurse if you are sick for any length of time, no matter which department you work in.
