    Pros

    There is a lot or room for growth within the company. Also, the training received on site is great. Management is always there to help you succeed.

    Cons

    The hours can be challenging sometimes and it is tough to deal with some people at their homes.

    Pros

    Ability to make ALOT of $$$ Night hours (if you'd rather have your days) Paid training (VERY INTENSE 5 DAYS!!)

    Cons

    Leads are generated by entering for "free Windows" Call center uses that info to call and pressure you into having a Salesman come out. Salesman are taught to read a 2.5 hr presentation to the potential customer (starting between 6-8pm) Not allowed to contact the leads to see if they are home... Must go through the call center which will then call the leads. Asked to "sensationalize" every little problem with the windows in someone's home to create urgency so they buy asap. Business Practices that don't coincide with my morals


  3. Rip Off Employer they use your car and gas, send you out at night wild goose chases, unconfirmed appointments long drive

    Pros

    There is nothing good

    Cons

    Bad experiences. Oversold the job, after one week of training sent out on nite calls using my own car and gas without reimbursement. Send me out nite after nite to the wrong address, no one home hour and a half away. When I got to one appointment but they wouldn't open the door. Appointments are not confirmed either.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as you would like to be treated.

    Pros

    Appleby is well run company with a "Family Feel" to it. All employees are friendly and helpful to one another. The company provided excellent training on various home improvement products, and continuously looks to advance top performing representatives. The best part is their proven lead generation program. Appleby is the perfect company for a professional sales person. Their compensation plan has unlimited earning potential and promotion to management is a realistic goal.

    Cons

    The only negative thing about working for Appleby was the unpredictability of the customers. While all leads provided to the sales representatives were confirmed, some customers were not home at the appointed time.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, I had a wonderful experience at Appleby Systems. Sales Representatives worked as a team, the marketing team was a joy to be a round, the office staff was always polite and helpful, and the Management team was top notch. A great place to work!


  6. I have worked at Appleby for almost 20 years, great company to work for.

    Pros

    Family run business and they make you feel like your part of the company, Employees are treated with respect. The potential to make high dollar is there but you need to go for it,..it will not come to you.

    Cons

    No cons ,but must be willing to put in the hours to make a good income.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to Management it seems to be running smoothly for 37 years.

    Pros

    You can make as much as you earn. Why would anyone ever want to work an hourly job that gives you a ceiling on how much you can make that only makes sense if your a lazy person that does not want to work hard.

    Cons

    NO CONS AT ALL. The only people that would see a con is the person that can not do the job. Its easy to blame the company for your own short comings that's the easy way out know one ever likes looking in the mirror.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work

    I love the flexible working hours and the compensation plan put in place is extremely lucrative.

    Cons

    Sometimes weather can make it a bit difficult to travel to appointments so a reliable vehicle is very important.

    Pros

    I've worked for Appleby Systems for a little over 15 years and I love working here. I started here soon after graduating college and have been given opportunities to grow with the company all along the way.

    Cons

    My days are busy, but I wouldn't want it any other way! If you want a boring/lazy day in the office, this isn't the business for you.
