Telemarketing, we all hate it
Appointment Setter (Former Employee), YorkOctober 1, 2014
Pros: you get to sit down
Cons: telemarketing
As an appointment setter you call people who filled out cards for free windows. Most times they aren't even interested in new windows or any type of remodeling. If you don't set a certain amount of appointments you are left go. Not to mention if there aren't enough "new cards" to call, you are calling people who filled out info from YEARS ago.

Enjoy a cozy 6 day a week 9am-9pm or later job.
Sales Rep (Former Employee), West Chester, PAJanuary 26, 2014
Pros: commission is 10%, pay is every week
Cons: long work weeks. you drive a lot. customers usually just wanted the free window package not you.
You know those cards that people sign up for to get a 'free this worth this much' that is what Appleby calls their customer. You drive to their house, they only really wrote for a spot at a free window package, you cut them a high price (15% above the actual cost) then low ball them down to the real price (getting rid of the 15% for no reason mark up) – more... and tell them this offer is only good tonight.

That is the Appleby way. As a sales representative you will have to wake up around 8am to check your emails to see what time your first lead it (usually at 10-10:30am) and find out how long it will take you to get to that place (no more than 1 1/2 hours tops.) Then you drive to that person's house, give them the window demo and try to push a sale.

The job is purely commission you get 10% commission if you make a sale, just don't have someone else recover your sale or you don't get squat.

If you think you can make sales out of that and are willing to put in a 6 day 10-14 hour work day week, this job is perfect for you.

The product itself is great. The company, a little vague, more about a sale than the care of the customer. And are always out to make the extra buck if they can. – less

We regret that your experience with Appleby was not a better one and hope that you'll find another opportunity that you find more appealing. Being a Sales Representative for Appleby is certainly a challenging position and we would not want to represent otherwise, however; successful Sales Representatives at Appleby can and do earn significantly more money than most other jobs in the US economy today. If it was easy and anyone could do it, the rewards would be far less. The average Sales Representative at Appleby runs 7 to 10 appointments per week. While there may be some long days, there are certainly some short ones as well. It is clearly an exaggeration to say that our Reps put in 6 10-14 hour days each week. Like any other high-paying job, it sometimes takes extra time and effort in the beginning in order to reap rewards later but things generally get easier with experience. Furthermore, the practice of quoting a list price and then offering discounts is hardly unique to Appleby Systems. Practically every retail business in the world does the same thing. It is almost a necessity for a company if they want to remain competitive in today's marketplace. Appleby has been in business for over 37 years and is proud of its reputation. We regret that your experience with us was not better but we respectfully disagree with some of what you've said. We have many satisfied employees making a good living doing this job and we are happy to be able to offer this opportunity to others.

Pros: job security, great co-workers
Next month will be my 15th year employment anniversary with Appleby Systems and I can honestly say that I love my job!

Great place to work
Sales Executive (Current Employee), York, PAFebruary 9, 2013
Pros: steady income, chance for advancement
Cons: cold weather in the winter.
Many employees have been with the company over 15 years or more. Tough for any private company to stay in business for a few years today, Appleby has been in business since 1977.

Great place to work Make your own Pay
Appointment Setter (Current Employee), York, PennsyvaniaFebruary 5, 2013
Pros: family like enviorment, make the money you earn
Cons: long hours, not a great balance work/home
Appleby has a great work environment with contest, positive re-enforcement, and constant training they provide you with the tools you need to succeed. The hardest part of the Job in our call center is dealing with rejection on a daily basis. Some of the most enjoyable parts is the people you work with, and being able to talk to different people every – more... day. – less

A Great Place to Work
Marketing Director (Current Employee), York, PAFebruary 5, 2013
Pros: friendly atmosphere, advancement opportunities, great products & people
Cons: long hours but the harder you work, the more money you make
I have been with Appleby Systems for 6 years now and would highly recommend the company. Having been in the Home Improvement industry for more than 15 years, I have worked for many companies, most of which are no longer in business or barely keeping their doors open. What my prior companies lacked where management, decision making, training, systematic – more... approaches and customer service were concerned, Appleby has mastered. The security of a 36 year history coupled with the friendly atmosphere of being family owned and operated provides a sense of satisfaction, motivation and pride. More so than any company I have worked for, Appleby deeply cares about their customers and goes above an beyond to make sure their experience is a great one from start to finish and beyond. I am not only an employee, but also a customer and I cannot say enough about the superior quality and energy efficiency of the Appleby Window. Since I had them installed 2 years ago, we have increased the value and comfort of our home and saved substancially on our energy bills each month. – less

Great place to work
Operations (Current Employee), York, PAFebruary 4, 2013
Pros: stable company, good customer service, performance based compensation, full benefits, great products.
I've been employed by Appleby Systems for almost 7 years and am very satisfied with the company's treatment of employees. It is a family owned business that's been around for a long time and the owner takes great pride in the business. There is a strong commitment to customer satisfaction. I also like the fact that most employees are compensated based – more... on their performance so you can make significant income if you're willing to put in the effort.

There's no question that the Home Improvement business has been a challenging business to be in over the last few years but the fact that Appleby has continued to do well in these difficult years says a lot about the company. I look forward to making even more money as the economy rebounds and Appleby benefits from its leading role in the industry. – less

Company based on lies. Would not recommend to my worst enemy
Outside Sales Rep (Former Employee), York PaJanuary 25, 2013
Pros: 2 leads a day usually
Cons: long drives. huge gas expense. unqualified deceptive tactics leads. unsatisfied customers.
This company is based on lies. Rather it be their product, their service, or their pay, it is all lies. You will spend countless hours driving at your own expense. You are to try and hard ball prospective customers who just met you into buying way over-priced products costing 3-40 thousand and they must make a decision now or you lose the sale. Sale – more... is then turned over to a recovery man who low balls your ridiculous price with the information you have gathered and he gets the sale. All part of their scam. Marketing will send you on bogus leads hours away only to find no one home or customer just lost job etc All at your expense. – less
