I have been working at American Fence Company full-time (More than 3 years)
Forward thinking company with intelligent leadership at all levels. They do a great job of elevating themselves above and beyond a typical fence company. Not afraid to tackle any difficulty level. As a sales person I appreciate the competitive advantage that it gives me. Challenging and exciting. Fantastic pay. Great co-workers with lots of tenure and experience. The people I deal with on a weekly basis in all areas of the company are phenomenal. Lots of dedicated people. Management is available anytime you need them. Nice, roomy office. Management is always willing to get tools we need to succeed.
Long hours. I could work 12 hours a day for a month and never get caught up. I appreciate the challenge as I get bored easy. The flexibility of being able to leave anytime I need to for kids events, etc helps make up for it. It is still stressful at times though. The workload is unrelenting. It works for me, but not for anyone who stresses easy or has anxiety. You need to wear big boy/girl pants and not take hiccups personally. Benefits seem to be pretty standard and not exceptional. I get health insurance, etc through my wife. I get pulled in to a lot of things like collection activity, contracting issues, inventory, etc that pull me away from tasks I need to get done. I like problem solving, so I get sucked in easily. The fleet could use some updating.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work. Implement software, etc. that will help ease workload and make people more productive. Monthly versus quarterly commission payouts would be appreciated as well. Continue putting good people in key positions. Newer fleet. Maybe vehicle wraps for a better image and to update vehicles.
