    The experience that i have had with a company recommended by Angies list, I believe was totally unacceptable. At this point I would strongly suggestion to people I know that they Not your service! It was recommended to me to use Mr. Handyman located in Minnesota, so the company did contact me and I made an appoint for them to come out to my place of business. I need 4 things done ....3 shelves mounted, shampoo sinks mounted, and a tv mounted, 3 large mirrors hung. It took an 1 hour for the man to hang 3 small shelves but it was done well not an issue. Then he began to work on mounting the sinks, he mounted 1 sink and move on to another, then he had to get something he left near the other sink and lean on it and it fell out the wall! Then he mounts it again and moves on to the other sink again. So i ask if I can try leaning on it just make sure its secure and he says yes.... it falls out the wall again. So he continues working on the other sink and puts pressure on it and it falls out the wall. He sits frustrated trying to fire out what to do. I call a plumber and he happened to be close so he stopped by and tells

I call a plumber and he happened to be close so he stopped by and tells me whats needed for the plumbing portion of these sinks. After the plumber leaves the Mr. Handyman contractor tells me he wiil need to open the wall put a piece of wood in the wall then mount the sinks. Luckily the owner of the building stops buy and says there was something he could do to make it so he would need to gut the wall. So now there are several holes in the wall and the contracted slapped some filler on those holes that was not done very well. Then he moves on to mounting the tv that went fine. So now its time to pay, I am charged $512.00 to mount 3 shelves and tv and for the contract to Try to mount sinks......Totally unacceptable I would like 2.5 hours of the charge returned .

    You've got a good train of thought going there. Angie's List not only mistreats the folks that run legitimate businesses, it allows UNLICENSED business people to be listed as well. We recently had popcorn ceiling (asbestos?) removed by Joe's Drywall (Carlos Joseph Avila in San Diego). After we paid them, we found out that they have no business license and no contractor license! Angie's List never checked their background.

    It is ridiculous! Turns out that they don't always check the background of a business, and that makes legitimate businesses like yours look bad.

    Gerlinda, I'm sorry that this happened to you. I used to be very enthusiastic in referring people to Angie's List, but no more. We recently had some drywall work done inside our home. The company, Joe's Drywall Repair (Carlos Joseph Avila in San Diego) answered our request for a bid. We texted back and forth, via Angie's List. Found out too late that they are not even licensed. No business license. No contractor's license. I thought that Angie's List checked out the "business" before listing them! They should stop hustling people into paying more for being listed and they should respect the good businesses by making sure that ALL prove that they are certified, licensed, and bonded.

    I'm sorry that this happened to you! I'm having a tough time reaching Angie's List right now. We recently found out that Joe's Drywall (aka Carlos Joseph Avila/San Diego) is not licensed in any way, yet we hired them because they were listed on Angie's List. We exchanged texts via Angie's List!

    Angie's list went from a reliable place to find good people to do work. I loved the site. Then some cockamamy idea (I am guessing this was a way to make more money.) was implemented. I will never use this site again. I dod not want to be bombarded by people I search. I want to look and read the reviews and make my own decisions. TERRIBLE IDEA and that person should be shown the door. I mentioned Angie's list to a friend and she said exactly the same thing. What made you great you trashed.

    I am upset to hear you bought Home Advisor. Are you going to destroy them too??

    Class action law suit anybody? Same with me I was told when we signed up leads would come in right away. Before we signed they had sent me 3 leads ( the bait) then they said it takes up to 90 days to get into the system. ( the switch ) yes this is illegal. On going ****. Then they took money out after we said we wanted to put on hold with no money coming in. The sales rep jeff Ferguson. Brian Foley and other case managers. Remember this company also owns home advisor which I pay for up until 2020. After receiving leads on HomeAdvisor from Angie's list and had to pay hundreds for these leads they told me that that's what there ( Angie's list does when they don't have enough contractors. Dumb **** was told that I advertise on Angie's list and I'm a contractor so why didn't I get it through Angie's list. No answer. law suits coming

    Good way to take care of your veteran company's

    I feel bad for you in this terrible time for small independent contractors. Several years ago I had a contract with Angie's List for a 12 month period. It was in two areas of the city that I live (Columbus).. In the 12 month period I received ONE lead from email. The lead came in late Dec. of that year. Met the prospective client. When I went they had set up a time with 5 contractors at the same time! How ridiculous! Needless to say I did not get the job nor did I want the job! It was like taking $3600 for the year and blowing it in the wind! The sales and I mean sales person that led me into the contract did not give me all the information that I needed. I called after the third month of the contract that year to talk with my rep. Her response was to get more reviews. If needed have a neighbor make out a review. I told them this was like 3rd grade thinking. I apparently had enough good reviews for Angie's List to reach out to me to PAY for advertising. Apparently I did not have reviews for them (Angie's List) to place me where my name would be seen. Very unfair practice. Also please watch out for scammers who will contact you through your Angie's List Business email. Best of luck to you!

    TO ALL SERVICE PROVIDERS:

    If you receive an email from Angie's List for perspective work and there are grammatical errors, misspelling of words in the email, or the name of the person sounds a bit fishy, please contact Angie's List. These people say they will pay you upfront by placing check into your account, and if you agree,then you probably will be a victim of their scam. I have talked with Angie's List about sending an email to their providers, paid advertisers of Angie's List, or non paying service providers. The first time I spoke with Angie"s List was in late January of 2020 and have spoke with them again (twice) about the same form of deceiving practices from people who represent themselves as Angie's List members. I have yet to receive any emails and I am asking Angie's List if they will post an email to their service providers of this issue. Thank you for reading and be safe in the business world, especially at this time of financial uncertainty. Our dollars are hard earned and we can not afford to lose that money to scammers who hide under the name of Angie's List.

    I own a small painting business in Middleton, WI. Which is outside of Madison, WI. I have been advertising with Angie's List for about 6 years and I told them that I couldn't pay this month due to cancelled jobs and much less work. 2 days later they charged my debt card for the full amount of $1050 for a month of advertising. I called my account manager and he said that it could not be stopped. He said after this initial payment they were talking about potentially giving us business owners the chance to pay 50% for 2 months and then 150% for another 2 months which also sounded impossible. I filed a complaint with my debit card company and they did a charge back for this payment. Now I was told by this manager that Angies List is going to cancel my payment and that I have 2 days to make this payment again or they will consider my contract in default and Have to collect the past due payments and charge me an early termination fee. They are very unforgiving in this difficult time and surely will be the cause in the failure of my family owned business. I told him that my husband and I have a special needs daughter who is home full time now under the quarantine with us and that I am a high risk person for the virus due to being a toxic mold survivor.

    Wonderful and honest Angie's List review of Sattler Electric giving Sid an F. Unfortunately, my job was underway/about done. Multiply the cost and headache of the person giving the F rating by several thousand. I'm recovering slowly, and in a few years when again can afford some work will get an Angie's List membership. (So at this point don't have any use for a membership. I'm broke.) This man is a psychopath, and it is from subtle intimidation, double talk, and deception that he has the AAA+ rating w/the BBB. Even past Angie's List (and other such consumer protection sites) ratings of A are probably either due to him somehow rating himself, or some other deception. Companies like Angie's List really can't do much more than the BBB. I actually just read the F rating review and have great respect for the courage of the person who wrote it. I hope he wasn't retaliated against, for Sid could probably figure out who it was. I'm afraid of this man and all the criminals who work for him, and so at this point don't have an Angie's List membership. I am writing this anonymous statement and sending it to the company's HQ in the hope they will post it and save others from the hardship this man caused us. He may now be in honest mode given how the truth came out; but this man should not be allowed to be in business at all. I wonder how many families and individuals he has taken advantage of over the past 45 years. Thank you Angie's List!
