    I have been working at American Dream Home Improvement full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is the advancement. When you tell your supervisor what your goal is for the year, they will stay on you to meet that goal. Communication between management and you is fantastic. There is a mass amount of people to support the sales force. First and foremost you CAN NOT be lazy if you think you can skate by with minimal effort this is not the job for you. Also you get a brand new company truck!

    Cons

    There is not one bad thing I can say about this company. They have brought me the lifestyle I have wanted for years in just months!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Very positive working environment. The company is growing at a fast pace. A lot of room to move up in the company. Always given the tools needed succeed.

    Cons

    Following up with unhappy customers who had to deal with overpromising sales reps.

    Advice to Management

    I think it would be helpful to focus more on online reviews. The internet rules the word!

    I worked at American Dream Home Improvement full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was hired into the Inside Claims Department without any previous construction or insurance experience. The training I received was extremely thorough as I was able to effectively understand the company operations and my department requirements.

    The position is not scripted, which I liked as I was able to get the tools needed to develop my own pitches. The Department Manager does many walk throughs easy day to check on everyone to see if they have any questions and to assist in tweaking pitches to increase efficiency.

    I also like the fact that the position is challenging and a new scenario is encountered on each job as all are different. This is also a team environment where co-workers will offer tips or assistance if they notice it is needed.

    This department offers two forms of bonuses which are attainable. The company offers benefits and matched 401K which was nice too.

    Cons

    Dealing with certain insurance adjusters who can become argumentative at times. Also, sometimes the calculations on insurance estimates can be confusing.

    I worked at American Dream Home Improvement full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros I can think of.

    Cons

    You have to work 6 days a week! If you opt for the company vehicle, they put a tracker inside the car so you can be monitored as to your whereabouts. If you like to be out in the elements and want to be an ambulance chaser after each wind or hail storm and don't have an issue with knocking on doors all day then this is the job for you! Worked 2 weeks then called it quits, left over a month ago still waiting for my pay check. No one seems to know where it is. Stay Away!!!

    Advice to Management

    I have nothing to say to Management, they wouldn't listen anyway.

    I worked at American Dream Home Improvement full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company trip and company truck. They would even let me get tanked at the office drinking 8 or 9 beers and then told me to drive home in the company truck. Lol!!!!

    Cons

    A lot of politics for storm areas and all the work is sub contracted. I've had so many homeowners tell me "you're a great salesman but your company sucks and has horrible reviews" they put you on some stupid 350 warning and then 2 job no pay basically meaning if you don't get 2 jobs you won't get paid. Well I got 4 jobs in one week and none the other week but you would think since it's an average of 2 per week I would get paid right? Wrong. I got paid for one week while turning in 4 jobs that would easily make my self around a thousand dollars profit each. But all they would pay me is 500. Huge rip off this company is and when I quit the VP Ryan told me I should have came to him but the managers tell us to not bother higher ups. Had work equipment stolen on company property by an ex disgruntled employee and the company would not reimburse me for the stolen work equipment. Unbelievable. Stay away from this company

    Advice to Management

    You preach that if you stay you will be a champion and succeed but I was there for 3 years and they treated me like a number!! Good company to work for 5 years ago but the money has gone to the higher ups heads and all they view you as is a number.
