    Pros

    Aspen Contracting, Inc provides a Top-Of-The-Line Professional Service in an industry that truly needs that kind of service. I have been with Aspen now 8 years. If I'd known of Aspen prior, I would have been here longer. This is a great company that truly supports their employees from an aggressive pay plan to the widest variety of company sponsored benefits. Benefits that are usually only seen large, publically traded companies.
    I highly recommend Aspen Contracting for those looking for rewarding career.

    Cons

    Sometimes, travel may be required.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture, it is awesome!

    I worked at Aspen Contracting full-time

    Pros

    The only pro was realizing in my new job how much better literally anywhere else is to work. Aspen made me thankful for nice co-workers at a new job.

    Cons

    Management at every level is under-qualified, under-educated and above all, unprofessional. Instead of interviewing to hire quality people, they recruit anyone and everyone and then don't give them adequate training or accommodations to succeed. I was told that advancement was a possibility, and on my first day I found out that was not true. The pay for any office position is terrible, and impossible to live on anywhere in the KC area. The owner has no experience in managing people, anger problems, and zero tact. Any skillsets you have will not be valued or used in any job here. If you are a hard worker with goals, look somewhere else! Kansas City has too many fine companies in it to waste your time working here.

    Advice to Management

    Although the owner will never do this, he needs to have a better screening process and hire managers who have adequate experience, who are honest people, and who know how to manage people. As for the managers themselves - act like adults.

    I have been working at Aspen Contracting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing, this is the worst company I’ve ever worked for!

    Cons

    They do not care about their employees whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    What management? Everyone is only there to collect a paycheck. You can not ask for help. This is the worst company to work for!

    I have been working at Aspen Contracting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    After 26 years in a completely different industry, I made the leap to Aspen Contracting and will never look back.

    The company is professional from top to bottom, and the sales support is unlike anything I've ever experienced. From training to sales/marketing material, iPads, business cards, benefits, social media marketing, bonuses, and even living assistance, Aspen provides the sales force with every thing we need to do the best job possible.

    The job itself is incredibly demanding. If you want to succeed, you've got to put everything into it. However, it really is a formula. They've got it down "pat", and you will get everything out of it that you put into it.

    From training at HQ to the staff at our Montana office, management has been absolutely amazing. It's wonderful to work with honest, intelligent, down-to-earth people who genuinely want to see you succeed. Team effort and integrity are present in everything we do, and our managers lead by example.

    Working for Aspen has revitalized my life. The earning potential and upward mobility is incredible! Our crew members are buying cars with cash, and putting down-payments on homes with the money from just one paycheck.

    The future is bright at Aspen Contracting!

    Cons

    It's hard work, but you get out what you put in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    product sales itself. Make a dang good living and still have a personal life. I've never heard an employee complain about the company! It's a very postitive culture.

    Cons

    I can't think of one.

    Advice to Management

    Y'all keep being great!

    I have been working at Aspen Contracting full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Aspen is big enough to be a corporation, but they don't treat you like you are disposable. It is small enough to get the help you need to suceed.

    Cons

    It can sometimes be a little too easy to climb the corporate ladder. Employees are shot up to management without the proper training.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house with management. Aspen is trying to become a streamline company. If you have a manager that doesn't encourage his senior employees to learn new systems, the managers employment status should be re-evaluated.
