Work at Home United Review

December 21, 2014 8 Comments


Product name: Work at Home United


Verdict: Not recommended

Work at Home United is the company that has been around online +8 years so far. The program claims to teach people how to make money from home.

At first glance, the opportunity looks great and very promising, because the owners of the program promise that once you join their team you’ll be able to build your very own business and enjoy your life of dreams.

But right from the start I would like to warn you that while the program isn’t a scam, it seriously fails to deliver on its promises and there are a few reasons for that. I’m going to take a closer look at this program to show you all the pros and cons of this program so you can make your own decision whether to join it or not.

The main idea behind the program is that you enter into an affiliate agreement with Work at Home United, sell various health supplements and earn your affiliate commission, i.e. cash money. So, let’s dig deeper into the program to fully understand what you can expect from it.


Pros of the program:

You can start for free

A step-by-step training

It’s a good option as an extra income stream only


Cons of the program:

Actually it’s an MLM company and all MLMs have a bad reputation

Many complaints across the web

No as easy money making opportunity as you might be thinking

Many people left the company disappointed after having been contributors to the program for many years

It’s not the proper way to build a real business

The program is by far not the best opportunity on the web


Inside the program

Work at Home United isn’t a stand-alone program as you probably may be thinking. There is a Melaleuca (popular MLM company) that stands behind them and WAHU is just their agent company that has no any product of its own.

The main task of WAHU is to get as many leads as possible and then give a call to possibly convert them into their active contributors. Normally, they make an appointment to discuss in person and explain all the benefits of their program and also ask for your credit card details.


The product you’re going to promote ranges from vitamins & supplements to food & weight loss, cleaning & laundry, dental, facial care etc.

The products are of high quality and can be a good option for an income if ONLY you know how to sell them the proper way.

Even on Melaleuca website they tell that their formula is simple: they suggest you to keep your full time job and start building a Melaluca business as your side income stream. Because they know very well that it isn’t that easy to turn this opportunity into a full time business.

In my opinion, the way WAHU presents information on its website is a bit misleading because they present it in such a way that you can change your future by following their simple step-by-step training, you don’t need large investments, that they have a proven system for your success etc. It’s not as easy as you might be thinking at all.

Another negative aspect is that WAHU owners never tell on their website that they’re partnered with Melaleuca company and the most obvious reason is that all MLMs have a bad reputation. The difference of Melaleuca from many other MLM companies is that they don’t pay for recruiting people but they compensate in the form of bonuses.

Another negative aspect is that though Melaleuca products are of good quality, they are a little overpriced and you can buy similar products from other companies for a cheaper price. That makes the process of promoting their products more complicated.

From my experience I can tell that companies like WAHU are mostly interested in you for recruiting others into their program. They’re not experts in SEO or can teach you how to promote your website and develop your business online the proper way. They’re partnered with Melaleuca and mainly interested in recruiting people and selling Melaleuca products.


Complaints about Work at Home United

There are many complaints about Melaleuca that you can easily find on the web by simply going to Ripoff Report. I also checked WAHU website on and here is what I’ve got: it says that WAHU website has been given a low reliability rating by other websites and that it was reported as being untrustworthy.

Final word on Work at Home United

Finally, WAHU isn’t a scam at all. It’s legit opportunity and you can use it if you’re interested in making money but you must understand from the very outset that it will take months and most probably years before you can start making some sort of serious money.

In my opinion, instead of working for WAHU, I recommend you to join WA – #1 online business community where you will go through the certification course and learn the very basics and even advanced level of internet marketing and then you can apply those knowledge to any business, your very own business online and promote any product you want.

WA is the community that really helped thousands of people to build their businesses and it helped me as well.

Going through WA certification course is the proper way to build a business online because you take control over the things and if you work hard you can make serious money. Some of my e-friends, fellow members of WA community are making $+10000 per month and I really don’t believe you can do the same with WAHU.

I can tell you honestly and with full confidence that what you can learn at WA, you won’t learn at WAHU or any other place on the entire web. I know many other legit opportunities and online business communities BUT to be honest, none can be compared to WA. You can read my review of the WA below and if you have any questions feel free to contact me.

    Hello again Rufat,
    Work From Home United sounds like a good name but man, was I wrong! How can I not know that it’s an MLM scheme?

    These internet gurus are getting more creative with their campaigns but I bet they do make a lot of money with the amount of people they’ve tricked.

    I hope you can save many people their time and money from this scam. Awesome review as always man, keep it up.

    • Rufat says:

      The program is not a scam in my opinion, but like you say, it’s just another mlm. But not all MLMs are illegal, some of them are doing alright. But general quality of this program is no great. I agree that so called gurus are becoming more and more creative. That’s why, we need to be extremely careful.

  2. Laurie says:

    I’ve known many people who got caught up in various MLM “opportunities.” In the end they wind up investing time and money with nothing to show for it. I think that people often suspend their common sense because they really want to find a system that works. I also personally like your recommended training because the internet business training they offer is so extensive.

    • Rufat says:

      I know that training too and it’s really extensive. As for Work at Home United, it’s very specific program. It’s one of those MLMs that is not a scam, but it’s not for everyone.

    Hi Rufat
    Another great article warning of programs offering the world and falling short. I know you have said that WAHU is not a scam but surely hiding the real company from people they are trying to get to promote their products is extremely disingenuous?. If they were being upfront and honest there would be no need to hide these facts.

    • Rufat says:

      I think Work at Home United is a kind of affiliate website promoting Melaleuca company, but I agree that hiding this info is wrong. Promoting affiliate offers is ok, but hiding info is not good. I think they hide this info because Melaleuca has many complaints and anyone can easily find this info on the internet. Another thing I don’t like is that when you try to create your account with WAHU, they ask your personal phone number which I’m sure they are going to use later by giving you endless calls trying to convince you to join their “amazing” opportunity. Since Melaleuca is a typical MLM company, I can confidently say that this program is not for everyone because it requires certain skills such as direct face-to-face sales skills. Finally, this is not a make money opportunity. This is simply a multi-level marketing company.

    Hi there! I was not familiar with Work at Home United till now, but I have run into many programs like this one in the past promising you that there is a great making money opportunity, and it turns out that it’s all about mlm. I too highly recommend Wealthy Affiliate to everyone that wants to make serious money from home with a serious online business. Thanks for this really helpful review!

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Effe, You said it exactly: all these programs claim that the opportunity they offer is very unique and once you’ve become a member of this program you can become rich. This is really a little annoying because all similar programs do the same. They promise you wealth, they promise you easy money, they promise to give you the world. But once you join you realize that the program is the same crap you saw a few days before that. From my review it becomes clear that this is actually a Melaleuca, an MLM company and the bad news is that they have many complaints (link provided above). Like you I’m a premium member of WA and this is the best program I’ve seen so far and I always recommend it because it’s really differs from all other programs out there.
