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.

NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
Jasper Contractors Jasper Roofing Fired After ONLY 2 weeks?! Lincoln, Nebraska
Jasper Contractors is a joke.
^^ oh how i wish i could underline that a few more times.
Firstly, i was contacted about working for this company through my friends brother-in-law, he sat me down, discussed a few things and explained to me that the expectations for a person starting out in the company were not that high and that i would be sent to Lincoln, Nebraska for a training period until after Christmas, when i would be sent to Phoenix, Arizona for more permanent work. Jasper informed me that they pay a 30k base salary plus commission and sweetened the deal when they mentioned paid health care and a paid hotel (the only real money out of pocket was my travel). For a 20 year old, that's a big step up from working at wal-mart like most my age.
So, I basically leave my friends, family, and girlfriend in Tennessee (almost a thousand miles away) to come to Lincoln to work for these clowns. I've never been in sales, nor done anything involving construction, so naturally i would have to learn about the company and their processes as well as basics about roofs. My "training" with the manager lasted 2 days and consisted of inspecting 2 roofs and signing ONE contract. (Great training huh?)
As a side note I'd also like to add that during my 2 week stay in Lincoln, it didn't get above 35 degrees. Most days it was in the teens. Now, nobody wants to open their door to a door-to-door salesman in the blistering cold, i know i wouldn't. And then they expect us to explain that its OK to remove their roof and put a new one on in this type of weather? Any INTELLIGENT person would tell these people to get back in their trucks and go back to where they came from.
On my last day with Jasper Contractors, I met with an insurance adjuster and got my first roof bought, went back to the office to input some information about the sale into the computer, and was FIRED soon thereafter and was told that i was not "living up to expectations" that were never explained to me NOR was i ever told that i would need to step it up a little bit.
All in All, I spent upwards of 400 dollars in gas to travel, and the night before i was fired spent 100 dollars on food that is sure to go to waste on my 13 hour drive back to Tennessee, none of which the company will reimburse me for. I warn anyone who is considering applying to work for these clowns to think twice before accepting the job, they'll just take you a thousand + miles away from home and send you packing soon after.
