    I have been working at HERITAGE CONSTRUCTION CO. (TX) part-time

    Pros

    You get rewarded for the amount of work you put in to it. Company truck, apparel, and super cool people to work with

    Cons

    Knocking on peoples doors sucks. A lot of the jobs that come in to the company are given to guys that have been there longer

    Advice to Management

    Make the training more formal and organized

    I have been working at HERITAGE CONSTRUCTION CO. (TX) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent medical and dental benefits

    IF you happen to live in the same city you work you have a little flexibility to make a quick Doctors appointment or something very brief

    When you have to move to a new market they will provide housing. You could be living with one other person or 8 people (sleeping on uncomfortable twin bunk beds)

    If you’re one of the couple people the owners went to school with or you want to party with the owners to be part of the clique then there might be more pros.

    Trips if you qualify

    Cons

    The salary they tell you about is temporary and they use it to lure you in with the intention of finding a way to take it back quickly. You can have several months where you sell far more than most other salesmen and you have one bad month and they will yank your salary away without a second thought.

    They tell everyone that if you lose salary and go straight commission that you’re a contractor. You aren’t costing them money so you have the ability to be your own boss, make your own schedule, etc. WRONG!!!! You will still continue to be micromanaged and have your job threatened regularly.

    You then become salary. When you become salary it will take forever to get your commission checks. Your commission will be much lower than competitors because their overhead is so high and you pay for that.

    Most people qualify for a truck to use. However, keep in mind that they threaten you with it all month long that you will lose it if you don’t make your mumbers. This is despite the fact that commissions were decreased to cover the overhead when the trucks were purchased. So if you don’t get a truck or lose the truck your lower commission is still paying for a truck you aren’t using.

    You will be paying for gas and weekly car washes for the truck that you will not be reimbursed for.

    They promote the good ol boys despite their numbers because it just works better when they’re all fishing, hunting, partying and other activities I will not go into.

    You will be given an iPad, but it will be deducted from your paychecks.

    If you live and work in different markets, you will essentially be living the singles life. You will not be allowed to leave for the weekends and even some smaller holidays as they will promise you. They will ensure you don’t leave by scheduling jobs to be done the days you were supposed to be at home. Of course they will be riding you about needing to work while they’re home with their families.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest, consistent and actually follow through with your promises. Stop rewarding bad behavior because they are your buddies. Every company wants to be successful and prosper but you need to do it honestly. You’re getting richer because you’re taking more and more from your employees while still buying new boats, planes, funding various other “projects,” starting up new companies, etc. You take your top performers on a trip but that’s a write off for you and they’ve busted their backs to earn that. It’s no sweat off your back. Some of us didn’t qualify for the trip because we came up a bit short this year but did great last year. Most of the ones that didn’t qualify came up short because they moved markets, sometimes several market changes. When that happens, they start all over. So they hand money over to other salesmen in the previous market and go to a new market to start with nothing.

    The best thing for Heritage would be for the oldest brother to leave the company and allow the other two brothers to run it. Focus on philanthropy projects and leave Heritage in capable hands that aren’t preoccupied.

    We make no excuses here.

    Producers prosper... We had sales reps that made 250K+ and we had sales reps fail to reach minimums. This industry is not for people that are not driven.

    Pros

    Great training and work experience. Everyone is here to help and make money at the same time. Great leadership, always willing to help.

    You eat what you kill. A lot of people don't make it because they want everything given. You go out there and make it for yourself and the limits are endless

    Pros

    Company truck, flexible schedule, base + commissions, six figure income, benefits, great team environment, opportunity for advancement and the most competitive sales position available in the roofing industry... I feel like our competition has NO chance!

    Cons

    You eat what you kill, turnover is high for those that don't make the commitment or put in the effort. This isn't right for everyone... You need to be someone that is internally motivated and DRIVEN!

    Advice to Management

    Look for higher quality people up front because the ones that don't make the cut whine on Glassdoor!

    I worked at HERITAGE CONSTRUCTION CO. (TX) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Base Salary, new trucks, company iPads if you can get one. I can't think of anything else to say about them because there are very few pros to working for them!

    Cons

    Micro managed constantly, insurance for family is expensive ($800 plus a month), pay for own gas, storm chasers, will be fired if you don't hit #'s that are unattainable on an old storm, knocking doors at night & on Saturday's to generate your own leads because they don't advertise, open up in new markets & don't have an established reputation so it's hard to make sales when people don't know who your are like other reputable roofing companies like Lon Smith, Quick Roofing etc. Struggle to keep roofing crews around when demand is high during storm season, office staff is terrible with communication, will not pay you commissions if you quit or are fired even if the work is complete because the office staff hasn't done their job in getting the invoices sent to insurance companies so the RD money could be released.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better & don't manage them by fear of being fired if they don't hit there #'s, talk to 20 people a day, post their sheets etc. Managing be fear like you are doing now is a sure fire way to fail & lose all your good employees because they will get tired of your Shennagins!!!

    I worked at HERITAGE CONSTRUCTION CO. (TX) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    great atmosphere...when you first start
    weekly salary (albeit small)

    Cons

    -lots of promises made that will never be delivered
    -lie about how compensation is structured...rest assured, in your interview what they tell you will not be true
    -poor organizational structure
    -no quality control
    -they hire a bunch of new guys who couldn't tell the difference between a nail and a shingle, teach them what to tell homeowners to get a job and never actually spend time training you how roofing is actually done.
    -the vp doesn't even know how to properly install a roof
    -no communication
    -will tell you that you're doing great and then the next thing you know you're doing horrible
    - will promise you things such as trucks, devices, etc. and then make you wait months before getting it, if you do
    -no support structure for you
    -if you have a family, you will no longer, as you will never have your own time. you belong to the company
    -constant last minute mandatory meetings scheduled, and when you're actually doing you job and scheduling appointments, you will not be able to make the meetings, then your penalized for it
    -you can count on something being wrong with your pay
    -it's all a group of high school buddies and if you didn't go to school with them, you might as well not work there
    -if you're not their golden boy who gets hopped up on coke, you will not matter
    -if you have dreams and aspirations to grow, this is not the place for you

    Advice to Management

    Get your heads on straight and stop acting like this is high school. Make an attempt to actually understand the issues that you create and find out what is bothering and hindering your employees from continually bettering themselves and the company. Get off your high horse.
