Jasper Contracts is a roofing and HVAC company located in twelve cities nationwide. Their target market is everyone because everyone has a roof over their head, whether that be at work or at home. The company believes that their size and various awards they have won set them apart from other companies in their industry. Additionally, they believe they are a competitive employer because they offer benefits such as company vehicles and insurance coverage for their employees and their families with no out-of-pocket costs.
The sales process at Jasper starts out with a salesmen knocking on homeowners doors. Occasionally, their sales force focuses on an area where damage has occurred due to storms or environmental conditions. While meeting potential customers, the salesperson is responsible for explaining to the homeowner the services Jasper can provide. At this time, the salesperson explains the steps it will take to complete the roof installation and provides advice when dealing with the homeowners insurance company. Additionally, the salesperson will aid in working with the insurance adjustor to assess the damages. During the entire sale and installation of the product, a representative from Jasper stays in constant communication with the client to ensure they are receiving the best customer care possible.
Jasper has noted that there are some areas of concern that need improvement internally, such as some of their methods of communication. Currently, they are taking an active approach on implementing new systems. For example, all of their employees are now given Android phones to ensure that orders can be processed right away. Additionally, employees have special email addresses for billing to make sure orders are taken care of in a timely manner.
One of the most common complaints Jasper receives is they occasionally leave nails behind after a job is complete on the ground. Jasper states that they go back out to the site and provide a magnetic sweep to clear the nails left behind. The other complaint the company commonly receives is in regards to the customers invoice being different than the quoted price. This is usually due to supplemental damage to roof that cannot be seen until the original roof has been taken off. Jasper does their best to explain this to customers. Additionally, the company states that if clients are dissatisfied with something, they send a representative onsite within twenty-four hours of being notified. They work with the homeowner until the situation is resolved.
Jasper has received many complaints from former employees in the sales department in regards to their termination policies. The company stated that they have put new training in place for the sales department which they feel helps to retain employees.
Since Jasper Contractors has been a part of Ripoff Report Consumer Advocacy Program, changes have been made to do whatever it takes to make the client happy. Japer is now requesting satisfaction surveys from current customers, they have more field managers working onsite, and they work to fix problems with-in twenty-four hours.

NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
jasper contractors jasper roof Do Not Work For Jasper Contractors! Internet, Utah
So, I made the mistake that so many people make and would advise you to learn from my mistake.
Do NOT work for Jasper Contractors! What a set of nit wits!
Here is why not;
you can't make any money
they screw you on the way out
they lie-constantly-to sales people
you will sell roofing to help illegal aliens get work
they work people to death (I did not mind 70-80 hour weeks, but my wife did)
oh, and you can't make money!
here is why you might want to work for these idiots;
you suck and sales and you desperately need $500/week for a while until you can get a real job, and you are a supreme a*s-kisser. that pretty well covers it. If this is you, you can go far...meaning past 3 months. oh yeah, if you need a vehicle to drive around while you look for work, you can use their truck and gas!
I lasted 7 months, was on pace to write 1.3 million in revenue, outsold everyone in my market (although some of the guys did out produce me in Arizona due to their ability to kiss a*s and get spoon-fed) still, at the end of my time there, only 4-5 people had produced more revenue for the 7 months I was there. Had I made it a full year, I am confident that I would have been in the top 3 in the company for YTD sales.
in their defense, they have decent sub contractors roofing, although they only have a few American citizens/legals. They also have crews that really screw up a roof. In Arizona, for example, nearly EVERY roof I put on (4-6/week) had complaints. Jasper will fix the problems, but they should have been done right the first time.
if you want to have some fun with them, find a roof going on and call INS!!! or if you are a homeowner considering using them, just remember that they have a worthless contract and you can walk away anytime before you give them money or they perform work. Use them for the claims process and then shop for a local contractor who will be there next year. Jasper will not be there next year. They claim that they are not a "storm chaser" but they are. They are the big storm chaser. They get complaints a year after the roof goes on, when it is leaking, then they have to call a local roofer themselves to fix your leak!!
It really is a terrible place to work in sales. Maybe the office girls make out okay, especially if they are willing to perform for the owner. He has a rule about hiring hot young babes, and has been known to have relationships with the help.
there are a few good people in management there, but only one good field manager as of May 2011. The field managers are a bunch of a*s kissers and many of them could not make it in sales, so they put on the brown nose to move up. Pathetic.
I can thank them for the experience. I learned a new business and where to make money in it, and it is not with Jasper. Also, you should know this-they are really disliked by insurance adjusters. There are a few of them who like Jasper, or like some of the Jasper sales people, but mostly, in local markets like Salt Lake, you will be hated while representing Jasper.
Here are the top lies told at Jasper (perpetuated by uneducated company leaders)
1. we have a 67% buy rate (under 30% in SLC and under 50% in Arizona)
2. you will make $100k a year at quota-NOT!
3. 10 contracts a week and you will put on 6-7 roofs/week (really?)
4. 10 contracts a week and you will have no problem hitting quota (sure)
I could go for days on this but I have to run. Maybe I will pick this up later. Let me say to all the LDS kids being recruited that I am sorry for setting up the account with LDS Employment. I hope I can help prevent more people from being involved with this company, its leadership and chief liars.
