    I have been working at System Pavers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    System Pavers has been a great choice for my career as they allow me to earn my potential and they are taking the company to the next level. The on boarding and support that you receive from not only your manager but from the CEO down is something I have never received in my career. They stand behind the vision, mission and process in which they follow that has proven to work for all.

    Cons

    The only con that I could even say is that there is so much potential to improve the hardscape of so many homes that there is truly allot of sales to close.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work that you have done for so many years by giving every employee the opportunity to earn and learn their potential! System Pavers is a great model.

    Pros

    For those that are serious about doing a good job and who work diligently, System Pavers is a rewarding company to work for.

    Cons

    Not really a "con" but the company is growing and is updating and improving systems and processes all the time. That's good in the long run but tough in the short run.

    I worked at System Pavers full-time

    Pros

    Excellent Freedom. Pay was good once.

    Cons

    Used to be sales. They want you to be a "Designer". Pricing is absurd. They will take your commission anyway they can.

    Advice to Management

    Be competitive on pricing. If you want sales people to be designers then you need to give them salary. So much wasting time on designs that hardly anybody can afford.

    Pros

    decent pay if you can upsell, if not good luck

    Cons

    They work you to the bone and squeeze every bit of enthusiasm out of you, then cut your pay and leave you for dead. on to the next victim.

    Advice to Management

    Those that have been faithfull to you should be listened to. some of your upper managers are blaming their people for downfalls and not properly managing.

    Pros

    Good benefits, provide you with leads, paid training.

    Cons

    Leads suck, not very many leads, system pavers have priced themselves out of the market. They aren't competitive with the market. Once u finally sell a deal you have to fight with construction for your money. It's aweful!! Save yourself. They spent so much money on their showroom that they had to raise their prices to pay for it.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't care. They are over worked and under payed. Upper management and top trainers and owners are out of touch.

    Pros

    Seems like a great company, nice people and benefits.

    Cons

    When I applied to System Pavers they told me they wanted me to start as soon as possible and that they were going to send me to Santa Ana for a week of training. What they didn't tell me, BEFORE I QUIT MY CURRENT JOB, was that I was going to have to pass a test at the end of the week, if you don't pass they don't actually hire you. There was a ton of information that you have to learn, way to much to absorb it all in 4 days. I missed by a few points and now I have no job.

    Advice to Management

    Tell applicants, if they are currently employed, not to quit their job until they pass your test.

    Pros

    Lots of training and support from local and corporate management. This is not a job, it’s a career that is rewarding financially and personally. Management pushes work/life balance and personal growth... this is a team environment. W2 vs 1099 is huge!! This is a real place of business with w2 employees that are focused on selling the best product in the industry.

    Cons

    401k match could be improved. Not really cons.. just know nothing comes easy in life that is worth anything

    Advice to Management

    Never forget sales is the backbone of this company!! Construction needs sales to survive,a lot of power is given to construction
