I started looking for a new job and saw the ad on craigslist that said make 15$ a hour.As a single mom only making 9$a hour and struggling to keep up with my bills I thought this job was exactly what I needed.
Before I left my job I went to the orientation to make sure that this job was legit an not a scam. The owner of the company explained during the orientation what I would be doing, I go in the home do the demo and 1 out of 3 times I did this I would walk out with a sale. He said that was the statisics and every one out of three times someone would buy because the Hyla is AMAZING! He also said that even if I did not make a sale as long as I did a minimum of 16 demonstrations and got 50 leads a week I would still get a 625 paycheck a week.
and I thought wow even if I did not sell, I would still make double of what I get at my current job! And he explained that if I did sell, the money I got from my sells were BONUSES on top of the 625$ base pay. He intentionly mislead me. After awhile of working for the company and realized, that doing that many demonstrations a week takes up a lot of time, and you do not have enough time to gather up the leads that you have to get to get the 625 minimum base pay.
I asked everyone that worked there if they had ever gotten the 625 base pay they all said no. I also realized that the money made from selling the hyla is not a bonus, it is the 625 or the money you get from sales not both, and when I began to think maybe I just misunderstood during the orientation, I sat in on another orientation for a new group of employee's, he was telling them the same thing! even wrote it on a white board with a marker to make sure they understood his lie! Another thing he lied to me about, told me that every time you sold a Hyla you made a 400$ commition.
This is also a lie. You can make 50, 200, or 400 a sale. He makes it sound like this is a get rich fast buisness. I understand there is money to be made.
But it is very hard. At my old job I was able to pay my bills with my 9$ an hour, and I loved that job. I left due to the company owners lies and deceit. And by the time I finally gave up, I was broke, behind on my car payment and rent.
I was unable to buy diapers for my one year old son. And did I mention that this job requires you to use your own car and you pay for your own gas. I would not be so angry if I was told the truth from the start. I felt cheated and felt like I was used!!!
I do like the Hyla Vacuum. I think it cleans amazingly, I do wish I had one.
But never ever ever will I work for this company again.I now know what to look for and what to avoid when looking for a job.
