Randy was dragging his feet and working very slow trying to milk up hours. Constantly on the phone and not keeping attention. I have pointed out items and issues which he could not grasp but simply disregarded. Then he had to go back and fix it while complaining. You need to constantly watch him because he is not honest and not professional. He purposely left loose wiring and purposely did not finish items so he can secure work for the next day.
Worst salon experience I've ever had.I was there 6.5 hours, and they didn't charged me $150 for the wrong cut and the wrong color. And they didn't even finish either one!I left in tears.My bangs are not even straight, and my cut was not even completed. They said since they had taken so long that I should just come back the next day and get it finished for free. Since they promised that, I paid and walked out the door. But now they refuse to complete either one. They literally lied to me.One of their stylists even said I should not have short hair, because my neck is fat. :( The woman even started yelling at me when I was crying, and the manager just said the woman was tired, over-worked, and hungry. But there is no excuse to yell at a customer. I understand that the team was frustrated, but it wasn't my fault that you guys didn't have the correct color, and there's no reason to take that out on me. I was never anything but polite through the entire experience, which the manager thanked me for.If you don't have the color someone wants, just tell them that. Don't try to do it with what you have and end up ruining their hair, still charging them a great deal of money, say you'll fix it the next business day for free, and then take back that statement.
Owner wants cash for her services so she don't have to claim on taxes, so if you buy a product from her ask for a receipt right away or your out of luck if the product has to be "sent back" and be told excuses on why she cannot provide a receipt. No receipt no record of ever buying anything.
Lindsay Keiffer of Luxury Urban Salons threatened me when I refused to remove a Yelp review about Eskeli Creations butchering my eyebrows in this salon. AVOID THIS SALON. They will accept positive reviews, but argue that the negative ones aren't about them, they're about their tenants.They also refused to return my call or email.
The food is delicious, Chicago style food! The cashier is delightful, very friendly and helpful. We had a really good experience and will come back!
I love the blonde hilites.. lowlites to enhance my beautiful hair as DeAnna put it thank you amazing...
The service electrician did a great job on troubleshooting the problem. He performed the appropriate electrical tests along the circuit and clearly explained what was happening.
Refuses to repair a brand new AC/heating unit. No customer service to speak of. Avoid this company.
Preslee Thompson is Wonderful... I have curly hair which is very hard to cut. When I found her she was great and talked with me about my hair and after getting my hair cut I was so amazed at how GREAT it looked. Preslee ROCKS! I live 18 miles south of the Wyoming boarder and drive down to Westminster, it is worth the drive... Preslee is also great with my hair color I will continue to go to Taliesin to get my beauty needs taken care of... They are wonderful..
The technician was prompt, worked quickly and professionally. He took care of all the electrical needs I had and went the extra mile.
There are different kinds of electricians. Some mostly work with contractors to install and map out electrical circuits inside homes and commercial buildings while others lay wire for large projects such as telephone lines and traffic lights. Keep this in mind when narrowing your search for a professional. If you need a tradesperson to work on your home or building, contact an inside or house wire expert. These professionals specialize in designing and putting new electrical systems in place for houses and commercial buildings.
When you contact an electrical contractor, describe the job that needs completing. Maybe you have a large project, like a remodeling plan that requires new wiring, or a small one, such as replacing a light switch or socket. Let the electrician know. Not every person you call will have the training and know-how to do more complex work.
To further hone your search, make sure you ask electricians the following questions before hiring:
1. Are You Licensed?
Trades such as HVAC, plumbing and electrical work require contractors to carefully install complicated systems that could be hazardous if they're installed incorrectly. Therefore, most states require electricians to receive training and obtain a license before working. An electrician that's licensed is one that's competent and knowledgeable enough of his or her trade to install and maintain electrical systems.
Electricians must complete thousands of hours of training in order to get a license to practice their trade, so make sure not only the company you choose but the employees doing the work show you their license. When you view the license, ensure that it's up to date and that it's issued by your state.
2. Are You Bonded?
There's potentially a lot that can go wrong if a tradesperson like an electrician installs wiring the wrong way. To spare you and your home or office from subpar work, make sure the electrician is bonded. Being bonded means the professional has an intermediary that can pay for any damage caused to a property or foot the bill if the contractor fails to finish the job.
3. Are You Insured?
Besides a bond, you also need an electrician that's insured. Many states require contractors to carry some form of insurance along with their license. Insist that whomever you hire has the proper amount of insurance for the work you need done and call the insurer to check the policy.
See that who you hire for the job has liability and workers' compensation insurance so you don't end up paying for injuries or accidents caused by the company's work. Workers' compensation insurance means the business can provide for any of its employees if they're hurt on the job.
4. Is Your Business Licensed?
Not only should you check that the electrician is licensed by your state, you should also ask if his or her company has the certification to operate in your area. Both the electrician as well as the business he or she works for need licenses either issued by the state or local municipality.
5. Who Will Do the Work?
Ensure the person who actually comes out to complete the work is licensed, bonded and insured. You need to know not just the company that's doing the work but the person they're sending out to your home or building. Make sure the employee doing the job isn't an unsupervised apprentice. If it happens that the business uses a subcontractor, check with both the company and the tradesperson that the same kind of bond and insurance applies for that subcontractor as it would for an employee.
6. How Much Do You Charge by the Hour?
If you have a small and simple job that needs completing, such as a new light switch, then ask the electrician how much they charge for it before hiring him or her. When it comes to larger, more intensive and time-consuming work, you'll want to inquire about the contractor's hourly rate. Many tradespeople will offer to come out to your home or building, examine it and give you an estimate as well as tell you how much they charge per hour. It's best to get this in writing before proceeding.
While you're at it, call several electricians to come out to your home to give you an estimate on the work. This way you can get an idea of what the average price of the job will be.
7. Do You Offer a Warranty?
Many reputable tradespeople provide warranties for their work. Inquire if both the labor and parts the electrician uses are under warranty and how long the work is guaranteed for.
8. Do You Have or Need a Permit?
Depending on what kind of repairs or installation you need, your city could require a permit for the electrical work. Ask your electrician if the job calls for one and have him or her put the permit under his or her name. Ensuring the tradesperson obtains a permit will safeguard you from any blame if the labor turns out to be subpar.
Finding a trustworthy electrician isn't hard, but you must do your due diligence. Make sure whomever you hire is licensed, bonded and insured, and that the professional can show you proof of all three as well as get the necessary permit for the job. Besides these important factors, you can take further steps to guarantee you obtain a reputable tradesperson.
1. Get Referrals
Ask your family, friends or neighbors if they can recommend a professional to you and inquire if they're pleased with the work. Better yet, ask them if they can show you the project the electrician completed and ask them how long it took the worker to complete it.
2. Look Online
It can't hurt to also check electricians out online. Look for reviews, ratings and, most importantly, see if they have any complaints on file with your municipality or with your local business bureaus. If former customers filed grievances against them, you may want to steer clear.
3. Ask for a Quote
Reputable electricians will give you a quote for small work over the phone if you ask and will travel to your home to quote you a price for larger jobs. Be wary of one that declines to give you an estimate or insists that he or she charge you for coming out to your house.
4. Ask Them About Their Experience
Being bonded, licensed and insured is all well and good, but you also need an experienced professional to do the work. With that said, interview electricians about past projects they completed and how many years they've been in business or how much training they have.
5. Be Wary of Suspiciously Low Estimates
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs. They are usually split up into three groups: outside, inside and residential.
Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
Residential: If you're a homeowner, you'll most likely need to hire an electrician that specializes in residential wiring. Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Like many trade groups, electricians learn their craft by going to vocational schools and shadowing professionals on the job. In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level.
If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Many do-it-yourself enthusiasts might be inclined to fix electrical problems around their home, but they risk shock and bodily injury. It's always best to call a licensed electrician, even if you have something as small as an improperly working wall outlet.
