Never work for or buy Air purifiers from Hyla

86 of 95 Hyla reviews

I got hired yesterday and had my first day of training today, They told us what they told all the sale reps that got screwed over by Hyla all over the country have said that they told us we'll get paid 825 a week even if we don't make any sales and that we gotta do 4 days of unpaid training then get 72 referrals and 12 demos. Then they told us how Hyla is the number 3 company of the better business bureau when they're not even certified by them and how Hylas are the 8th product in demand in Europe and how glycol which is used in the air purifier is the safest disinfect in the world, in reality glycol is antifreeze and not that safe and they told us many other over exaggerations, the whole thing seemed sketchy they were in a small hidden building with a tiny sign and looked like they just moved in claiming they were the best sellers of Hylas in the country and the owner actually admitted to being a former drug addict saying he knew all the tricks to manipulate people and that he was gonna teach us them to get people to buy hylas, After reading all the complaints against employers of sale reps of hylas here and on other sites I'm not coming back but I'm worried cause I gave them my social # on the application before I even knew what I was gonna be selling or even be doing exactly, is there anything I can do so they don't steal my identity when they most likely have to bail and move some place else?

I wish i would have read some of these reviews before going to an interview with these people. Heres my story:
So a couple days ago I saw an advertisement on Indeed about a company called "Holistic Air," and i saw that they paid 10$ an hour naturally i was interested! So I applied with my resume and got a call the next day. The town to which the store is located in is Pittsburg Kansas (a small college town). I scouted the place out the day before my interview and I noticed that their was no signs or anything about the business and it looked like they had just moved into the building. This is when I started to get a little leary, but i didnt think much of it, because the advertisement said that they were a new company. When I went to the interview, it screamed "Sketchy," the people didnt look like professionals and the inside of the building looked so strange. Their was only 2 people inside of the building at the time. Halfway during my interview something started not to feel right. It felt like they wanted me to be a glorified door to door sales person. I actually finished the interview and I told them i would call them back sometime. But in actuality, i had already made up my mind that I wasnt. These purifers seem sketchy at best and I would never buy one at all. They kept talking about all the benefits but i didnt beleive them. When i came on here, I realized why they didnt have a website. The fact is that their are so many distributors of this product and they are

Well buddy you were almost correct. They are not doing anything illegal (yet). I work there but will soon not be. I am gonna pick up my last check and leave. I loved working with people because legitimately the Hyla is awesome. But the people and management are not. People hate door to door salesmen and that hasnt changed with this. And whenever I would try to input a new idea that might help people get to trust more they say nay of course. So yes people beware do not work for this company. Its the false promise of a easy job and easy money. They spew fancy words in order to brain wash you into doing what they want. They do not care about people only profit.

Okay, well I work for and own a hyla and have not once ran into an issue sucheck as these. I can only assume that you definitely had a sketchy distributorship as well as being too lazy to put in the work. Glycol has a couple forms. Propylene, ethylene, etc. I ate at chick fil a the other day and read glycol as an ingredient in a sauce. Please remember that your experience could be isolated and slander like this affects the livelihood of families like mine. Thank you.

You are simply parroting your Hyla boss when you say that someone was too lazy to work. You learned to say that from them. You know it and I know it. Well, let ME educate you: slander is spoken, libel is written. Truth is an absolute defense against any claims of either! Got it?!!!

One thing I have noticed over the years: People peddling overpriced vacuums door to door DON'T OWN ONE! Why is that? THEY CAN'T AFFORD IT ON THEIR PAY!

I went to an interview for the office in Fayetteville and it screamed scam. I showed up to the interview dressed nicer than the supposed "sales manager", and the office was a dump. The manager was using this crappy little pitch on me about how I could make so much money with so little effort. I got up and walked out halfway through the interview, it was a joke. Remember, hard work and determination is how you make and honest, good living. Not by being ran in circles around by a bunch of backwards scam artists.

This company is A SCAM!!!! These "Hyla reps" (I would prefer to call them lying a**holes) come onto all these posts and comment calling us people who worked for hyla and quit because we realized that it was a scam lazy. Im sick of it! First off I worked for a hyla company in tulsa oklahoma called jackson air. And all was the same. I had a very good job working in a animal hospital but as a single mom it was hard to pay all my bills on my own and find money for diapers food and things my son needed. plus I had a dog with a illness that required medication that was 300$ a month. I loved my job but when I saw a post on craigslist that said 15$ or more a hour I had to check it out. I met the "owner" or jackson air the next day and he told me it was a sales job but Id be making 15 a hour and had potential to make more and hired me. So I told my boss I got a job making way more and quit my other job. When I saw the guidelines for making 700 a week I was like "I can do that!" I went out the next day in the June 116 degree weather in hopes of getting close to my 72 leads. But after walking in the heat all day only to have most people slamming doors in my face or others looking through their windows and telling me to get off their porch I realized it wasnt going to happen. I was only able to get maybe 5 or 6 leads before 1:00 hit and it was time to go do my demos. and once I showed up for the demos some people would then tell me to go away then or would sit through the demo then say...

I cant speek for the dealership that you worked for. However, i can say that the Hyla is a wonderful product.
I think it is unfair of you to slam the product, because of the dealership you were with, those people are going to always exists they will be selling something else soon because they are kicked out.
However, i do have to say there is a lot of
money to make in commission sales because there are so few that understand it and work it. I have been doing it for many years and have been very successful. But there are many people that start but cant make it because the pay is both based on what and when you do it. If you need the comfort of a weekly amount on money, 4-500.00 every week then this is not for you. But if you have the ability to budget 3-4000.00 this week and 200.00 the next week then you can make a lot of money. Join us on the other side.
And for the person that said honest hard work is how you get paid. Your right. Commission sales is hard work and you get paid very well.
If you want to continue to cut people and companies down because you dont have the strength in yourself to do so be it. Dont do it continue working 40+ hours for 3-400 a week. Happy new year.

LOl typical response from a brainwashed rep. Sweetie, there are 16 year old McDonalds employees making more money than you and doing it in less humiliating working conditions as yourself. Your posting was funny, so thanks for the chuckle, I guess.

I agree. I worked for Hyla in Arkansas for almost two years and the sales allowed me to eventually retire. Granted, there were weeks that I did not make more than $100, but I made enough money during that time period to start my own computer company and am now retired. You have to be willing to work very hard at times. I had some weeks when I put in over 100 hours, but my average was closer to 25 hours per week. Just knocking on door trying to cold sell a product will never be successful. Surveys and contests are the best way to break the ice and once the potential customer actually sees the product in action, the biggest challenge is convincing them that they can afford it because it truly does sell itself. The biggest problem with the Hyla is that it is a very good product and repeat customers are rare because it lasts so long.

Do you have any other works of fiction you have written about Hyla and your financial situation?

Where in Peggy's posting did she slam the product? You are just looking for something to be outraged about because you know you have a crummy, embarrassing "job" and you can't find any other line of work. BTW: I am THAT person who won't let you finish your sentence or step one foot in my house. I am that person who calls the police on your for soliciting without the proper permit! I am that person who will never buy anything from you because I am NOT overpaying by thousands for a vacuum (it is a great product - I admit) just so you can earn a bloated commission! P.S. take some of your monopoly money and sign up for some English grammar courses!

Hyla stands by its products all over the world,
and if someone states anything different, then
the statements would be false. These statements
normally come from pissed employees that sale to
family members then don't want to work the majority
of the time, therefore don't make money, this is a sales job and it is not for everyone, especially lazy people and people that have no people skills. All products sold come with a 5 year warranty which is the best in the business, and a lifetime labor warranty, and all contracts are legal and not a scam. All customers have 3 days to cancel contract if they are not 100% satisfied. Hyla also leaves phone numbers to the office it was sold from, the web address, the phone number to the corporate office, and the rep leaves the customer their number as well. If u are dissatisfied with the product it is probably because u are to lazy to use it, or to lazy to pick up the phone and request assistance.

What kind of company rep goes on a website cursing or calling their customers lazy? You don't know how to use proper verbiage, comma, and your sentences run without end. Maybe you should use all the money your making to invest in an education, because my 10 year old could write a better statement defending your company. You don't seem very professional to me. Seems like you are not legit at all. You should go back to school. You may not be scamming people, but you are an *** who needs English lessons. I am not an ex sales rep, I am someone who purchased a Hyla, and while I am not dissatisfied with the product, I am dissatisfied with the representation of it.

The irony continues with the anonymous posting above! This "really smart person" has called someone out for a misspelling, by writing a fragmented sentence!

Complete sentences in a blog or comment section are rude and inappropriate- Shorten your comments and have consideration- Many people read this - most don't care about proper grammar. It's like texting-Be glad that most attempt to spell correctly and don't use shortened words like this: Do yu rly nd wds 2 b full?
