    I have been working at American Exteriors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people in the company really seem to be concerned about me and my family. I like the coworkers in the group and really respect the management team. They are trying to grow a company in a mature business and do it with integrity. It is very motivating and exciting to go to work every day. They are really trying to do a good job for customers in a very questionable industry. Some people don't understand the marketing program of having canvassers8 on the street but there are definitely benefits to homeowners. I like the flexibility and the positive attitude of the people that work at the company.

    Cons

    You have to be organized and self-motivated to do the job well. It requires being on time and learning a lot of information. That can also be a positive I guess as well. You are challenged to be the best person you can be while you are growing.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on the customer and the customer experience. It is getting better every 6 months because of the increased focus on quality control.

    I worked at American Exteriors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They make an outstanding window with an excellent warranty.

    Cons

    BEWARE!!!! Very sketchy preset appointments with no gas allowance or mileage reimbursement. Getting paid is a nightmare and when payment is disbursed, the commissions rarely match the company's estimate.(ALWAYS short!) Perks, bonuses, and sales "spiffs" are promised and rarely delivered after Sales Reps achieve required target. Constant turnover due to company's unreasonable, hardcore "one-call-close" sales demands with poorly qualified appointments. Company has no tolerance for failing to "one-call-close" customers with bankruptcies, lack of funds, or inability to get financing approval. Employees are "strongly encouraged" to write and post glowing reviews about working for the company. Run away from American Exteriors!

    Pros

    American Exteriors is a fantastic company! I've worked here for 6 months and all I see are good things from a well run organization. The employees are the best in the industry and the management team is very fair, positive and energizing. It's the opposite of many companies. The management team is really focused on growth and it's happening. I don't plan on ever leaving this company.

    Cons

    I genuinely can't think of any significant cons, so I'm only left with nitpicking. I wish the 401k had matching contributions, I wish insurance was paid at a higher cut for professional employees and I wish vacation time kicked in sooner for the skilled professional sales professionals. I really can't complain though. Most companies have to make compromises in these areas, and my complaints seem to be pretty common no matter where you work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    American Ext. is a top notch company from top to bottom. From the canvas team to the support team everyone is pushing towards the commons goal. With daily "huddle up" calls to motivate and talk about team strategy to constant ears from start to finish. AMEXT.com is a total team atmosphere. Caring for home owners is our top priority. Investing in your home with energy efficient Windows or Virgin vinyl siding, AMEXT can promise you savings in many different areas. I highly recommend if you care for you home or you are looking to sell and have the a lifetime warranty of the home with the energy efficiency, AMEXT is the home improvement company that satisfies every aspect in the process

    Cons

    No cons. Only savings In your future

    Pros

    Free time, but if you don't want to spend your own gas money and pay higher insureance, STAY HOME.

    Pros

    I have worked for a lot of sales companies in my 25+ years in the workforce. Some pretty good ones and some pretty poor ones. I would honestly rank American Exteriors at the top of who I have personally worked for. All companies have the slogans about wanting customers for life, but I've never seen a company live it out like American Exteriors and will literally take a loss to make sure they are happy. As a sales person, this gives us amazing confidence going into a home, knowing that we are backed by a company that practices what they preach!

    The other key point, I think management has found a great balance between pushing the sales staff for hitting goals and yet not making it feel like a constant beatdown when we don't hit numbers. I've worked for some where if you didn't hit goals, it wasn't pretty. American Exteriors remain very goal oriented and yet a positive approach in helping us find ways to get better.

    Solid Benefits

    This type of job is clearly not for everyone, but if you love in home sales, this is the company for you! Best decision I made was to join them.

    Cons

    Only con is not the company, but the industry itself. It is 100% commission and some people are not comfortable with this format and I can completely understand. The flip side of the con to a job like this is high risk = high reward. You can truly make a great living doing something that is fun and enjoyable.
