I worked at Jasper Contractors full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

none whatsoever...this is the worst company I have ever worked for so I am happy that I no longer working for. You will be very sorry like I was for believing all the hype that they present at there employment job fairs to get more bodies to make them money.

Cons

Work a ton of hours for only 30k plus commission
commissions take a long time to get paid when you are a new hire trying to build your sales pipeline.
company truck is worthless cause you can only drive it to and from work if you meet certain sales goals
high turnover
treated like a trained monkey and expected to make sales every day
have to work major holidays if its during the week like July 4th last year was, which is a waste of time
You will be fired before 90 days is up when you aren't making a ton of sales because company doesn't want to pay for your family's health insurance unless you are making them a bunch of money.
This company always pushes its account managers for more sales even if that person is meeting the required goal of 100,00 producible revenue a month. Always pushing for more out of there sales team.
You collect the money after the job is complete and won't get paid commissions until job is paid so you are also a collections agent for Jasper Contractors.
Get sent out of town for an extended work assignment if your market is new or isn't busy yet so be prepared to go on the road if you are in a slow or new market.
Account managers also get chosen to drive fleet vehicles (trucks, service vans, or pull trailers etc) from other markets if they are no longer using them to a market that needs them yet receives no extra pay or bonus for doing so and maybe forced to make a long drive with no overnight stays to rest.

Advice to Management

treat your employees better cause the good ones don't like be treated like a trained monkey beating every door to make a sale in a highly competitive industry

    I worked at Jasper Contractors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good peep talks by the managers, always tell you that the sales are there. The pictures of the "big checks" are fun to look at. Nice trucks to use...potential for commission checks.

    Cons

    The demand is too high for an area that has been "knocked" out already. Fresh storm area might be a different thing.The daily threat of being terminated is always there....work Mon-Sat even in snow and 15 degree weather...but my god you have to get that ink on the paper.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up...why is the turn over so high?? DUH!!!
    Some Field Managers are good......others are totally worthless!
