Metro Construction Jerod Raisch, Andrew Tsakalakis An accurate description of what you will get if you work for or do work with Metro Denver Colorado
Metro has now defaulted on both there suppliers and the project managers. They are not able to pay anyone. The reason for this is that they have dishonest leaders in Andrew and Jerod and the company is carrying WAY to much overhead. Anything they tell you verbally about getting paid means nothing. The marketing is weak, customers either don't actually agree to meet with a PM or don't have any idea why we are coming over. This leads to a very high no show no entry rate on appointments all over the state.
The roofing and window work is below average. They use Owens Corning's cheapest shingle Oakridge. Lack of work, poor management made it hard to keep subs. If your roof is being done by Nacho get the buckets out it's gonna be leaky. We had install, scheduling and punch list issues on over half the jobs I and others ran. It's hard to get referrals when you are putting out fires. You are a 1099 "partner" who is paid only via commission, but you have to come in every day for a morning meeting even if your appointments are hours away, drive canvassers out to get leads even if they don't give you any, and you get a flat 10% commission unless they decide the job didn't make enough money then they take it. No you don't get any extra bonus if the job does well.
Here are the real numbers:
Metro had less than 1,000 jobs last year which were listed as sold. Roughly 33% of those fall out due to adjuster denies and customer changing mind or doing their research. They cycled through over 90 Project managers/Sales people. Almost none of which are with them anymore. I only know of one guy who has been with Metro over a year, Mark Aumen. If you are thinking of being in the next batch this will be much closer to the real numbers. Lets say they did around 3.3 million total revenue last year. 666 jobs at an average of 5k with roof and insulation averaged out this is very generous. Which divided by the over 90 project manager means they averaged 37k in business for the year. Times that by the 10% commission means the average salesman only made $3700 for the year. Take out the over $1000 it takes to buy all the crap Metro makes you buy "your own personal liability for your LLC $300, ladder, any advertisement, door hanger, signs, metro gear (yes they make you buy your own hat, polo with there logo, pamphlets you get for free at the suppliers. Plus $400 average gas per month. Just like the company everyone who works there was broke before Metro stopped paying them.
Wanted to give accurate info for everyone.
God Bless and Good Luck
