    Pros

    I started as a college student in 1980.
    Since I started door to door, and since I have been on over 50 all expense trips around the world!
    I started with a fifty dollar car and yet earned over $45,000 my first year in 1981.
    Since 1980 I've earned millions of dollars, and I still enjoy working with Aerus and can't imagine working anywhere else.

    Cons

    You have to have self discipline, no one will tell you to work.

    Pros

    Paying 25% on company trips

    Cons

    Well, if you're a store manager, like I was, you don't get to do any managing, because you got the CEO and his minions breathing down your neck. They're corporate office/head quarters are in the same store in Fresno, CA. as you are in. Plus, the pay is so low for an Office/Store manager: $10 an hour and they expect you to sell, manage, inventory control, train and hire sales rep: who work only on commission, repair and service broken vacuums, tech support, and verbal abuse from owner and his minions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro-managing. Pay your Office/store manager more for what she/he does for your store. Learn how to trust the people you hire to do the job you hire them for.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate and take interest with employees

    Pros

    Most folks are friendly, and the pay and benefits is acceptable. Offices are nice. I only enjoyed about 20% of my experience there. The rest was just nothing but unnecessary stress.

    Cons

    The company seems rudderless. They have a strategy of throwing everything against the wall to see if it sticks. Poor overall company vision. Lots of egos, and career employees seem out of touch. Most companies they acquire end up shrinking to bare minimum, and then just sustain.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on a long term plan. Be more motivational to employees. Stop treating your employees as assets.

    Pros

    Great Income Opportunity.
    Fantastic Advancement Opportunity
    Awesome Training Program
    Incredible Incentive Programs. (Bonuses, Prizes, Trips...etc. etc.)

    Cons

    You get out of this opportunity exactly what you put into it.
    You must have a good work ethic, positive mental attitude, and a willingness to learn.
    Your Friends and Family wont get it until they see your results.

    Advice to Management

    Keep Sharing The Opportunity!!

    Pros

    The good is that Aerus is a company built on franchise opportunities. This allows hard working people who care about their employees to give them time off when they need it and make their time at the company very rewarding. The calls were generated by the branch I worked for which allowed for less worry. The company allows you to make very good money and live well coupled with time off.

    Cons

    The bad is that Aerus is a company built on franchise opportunities. This allows people who don't care about making money and keeping employees to open stores which was shown by other branches in our area. Also there was a staggering lack of training and no benefits provided through the company.

    Advice to Management

    Train more, expect less from new comers.

  9. Independent sales job, but they dont tell you that when they reel you in only its a service job

    I worked at Aerus

    Pros

    Work your own hours, friendly staff, the boss will literally take u out personally and try to generate sales

    Cons

    No guaranteed income, u have to work there like 2 weeks before anyone telss u what the job really is. When u r actually doing in home sales like Kirby guys, the staff is coached to only tell new hires that we go in homes and teat air quality and then educated the homeowners. Apparently they dont feel its necassary to tell new hires if u dont sell u dont get paid. Unfortunate because they make it seem like you have a guanteed check each week just for doing the standard air test and education session in folks homes.

    Advice to Management

    Tell new hires up front this is just like selling Kirby's only we have different products than just a vacuum. I have seen entire hiring groups quit when they all realize at the same time they have been lied to about what the job really is what slim chance we have to make money

    Pros

    Plenty of money to make as long as you don't have any ethics. An elite clique full of brats who call each other "boss" and act all "ghetto". Great for people with criminal minds and zero ethics.

    Cons

    There are three local companies, in Williamsport Pa, associated with this group. Aerus, Rainbow Carpet and Lycoming Air Supply. All three sell overpriced appliances. They prey on the elderly mostly. The job begins with door to door sales. I put in two weeks 'training' with a salesman. I was absolutely appalled by the unethical methods he used and couldn't bring myself to sell the lies he did. He made it sound like everyday air was full of poisonous allergens and other nasty substances. Therefore, to prolong life, Aerus air filters and vacuum cleaners were worth the thousands of dollars. I worked with this company over two weeks and didn't receive a penny. I quit because I couldn't sell these commodities, at these prices and under this level of deception. Sadly, the local manager made over $200.000 a year. More than a medical doctor or a lawyer. Yep, capitalism is not meritocratic.

    Advice to Management

    Get a real job. Admit your services are overpriced and unnecessary. Stop using a pyramid scheme.
