Vivint's only legitimate claim is having low operating costs... because no one gets raises when they should, and everyone's job is outsourced to countries that only do a quality job on paper, not in actual practice. It's a good-ol-boys promotion... — read more
Not so rosy
The company often shows poor decision making. Your input does not matter here, unless it aligns with what your manager thinks. Making a positive change is extremely difficult, and the trend of cyclical behavior means that any change you try to make... — read more

Let's start a solar workers union
Remaining employees should contact organized labor and start a union. Verizon went on strike. Imagine if all site surveys and installs stopped because of wage fraud (not paying overtime, piecework). Strike for better pay etc. VSLR couldn't replace... — read more
Can someone list locations that may be and have been affected
If we list them here they will show up as people look for them on the internet - that's how I find this layoffs.com - the more people we have here the better and we may get some advance warnings as they are certainly planning more job cuts - not sure... — read more

I survived the great Vivint Solar axe of 2016!!! We are the top office in the country, heard the news, got home, drank cold brews, and grateful to still have a job to go to in the morning...Jews.
I worked for vivint for the last 8 months I was the first person to help open the doors of this office. I worked my butt off ironing out all the issues the office had the reps praised me for my hard work. I walked into work Monday as any normal day -... — read more
It's not personal, Sonny. It's strictly business.
Look guys and gals. It is unfortunate that offices have closed. Failure is part of capitalism. Survival of the fittest. The offices that closed, simply put, were not performing. They were driving Vivint's cost per watt up. Because Vivint is a... — read more
They don't give a damn about you!!!

VSLR is More politics than the 2016 presidential debates
With the recent closing of multiple offices. This message is more of a heads up to those seeking employment in the West Coast So Cal region on what's been proven by numerous past and current (until their offices close) employees. Favoritism and... — read more
screwed up business model
Just showed up to work to a locksmith changing locks and given a slip saying we are laid off with no severance or anything. And told many offices were "consolidating" into regional offices. Just shows a failed business model of rapid expansion with a... — read more
Two offices laid off in Southern California
They didn't give notice or reason. Fair warning would have been appreciated. This is what happens with bad planning having to meet Wall Street expectations. Human casualties.
Today Vivint solar laid off every employee in my office and spoke of plans to close 13 offices in NY, NJ, Mass, CT, and MA.
Current/Former employee of Vivint Solar's Boston North office. Tuesday myself and 14 other employees were laid off without notice, as part of what management claims is a national downsizing.
