Jessica’s Soapbox – August 2018

Hey everyone!!  Lucky me, I was chosen to do this month’s Soapbox. As many of you know, I have been with the company for a long time and am currently the Sales Manager.  I wanted to take this opportunity to talk about my time with the company.

As of this month, I have officially been with the company for 10 years!! When I found out about the job opening, I had no idea that I was applying for a position at a gun manufacturer… Hell I didn’t even know what they did! I started out as the receptionist and had no idea how much I would love this place! After a year of being the receptionist, I was promoted into the repair department, handling everything that was sent in for custom work and repairs, gradually becoming the Customer Service Manager.  I thoroughly enjoyed running our customer service, we have some amazing customers!! 9 years later, I was offered the Sales Manager position.

I never thought I would be here for 10 years! But this company has become my family. During the last 10 years, I’ve had some ups and downs both personally and professionally. I had a baby, who is now 5 years old and I had the luxury of being able to bring him to work with me for the first 6 months!  I’ve been through some tough relationships and am now happily married to the man of my dreams. Sandy and everyone at NAA has been more than supportive through all my trials and errors. NAA has been the career of a lifetime. I’ve gotten to travel all over the country, which has allowed me to meet so many customers and NAA fans. I’ve built some amazing relationships with customers, relationships that I will cherish for a lifetime.

I believe in our product and I believe in the company. I have always strived to do the best that I can and to be what I would want/expect from any other company, and I hope I’ve done so and beyond.

Well… That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Thank you all for taking the time to read my Soapbox and thank you all for the love and support of NAA! Without all of you, we wouldn’t be here.

 

 

Your Sales & Customer Service Manager,

Jessica Jarvis

  1. I have had the pleasure of meeting Ms Jessica. She is every bit as nice as she seems. I have had numerous dealings with her in warranty work and she always handles the problem(s) like they were her own! She is one of the reasons NAA is as successful as it is.

  2. You have a dream job, working for a great company with great people; selling something that practically sells itself! Just let us know what’s new, and it finds its way into lots of wallets and wish lists. Only problem we have is in deciding which one we want first :).

    I know we all appreciate the info and comments you add to the forum. That’s a very important part of NAA’s great quality and service. You’ve cleared up a number of question marks we have, or details we didn’t know about. Your show appearances help spread the NAA gospel, so more people join the NAA club.

    Thanks for what you do, and here’s to another ten!

  3. Nice photo and nice story. NAA might consider doing this again. This and the forum makes it feel like being part of the NAA family.

  4. I am on my 2nd NAA firearm, a Pug, the first was a Wasp that I sold. Dealings with NAA have been nothing short of stellar. I recommend them every chance I get, although it’s easy to stay under the radar with them (just the way I like it). Thanks for caring enough to satisfy.

  5. I had talked to Jessica quit a few times and especially when Sandy and all were working on the new Ranger II. She kept me up to speed and a lot of things. I know that she is very a valuable asset to the company and Sandy is lucky to have her support in any position she has with the company. I just missed meeting her at one of your appearances. Thanks for posting a great family picture. All the best.
