*** jobs

i own a kirby, wich is a good vacuum, but the company itself sucks to work for. my eldest daughter is a single mom trying to support herself and her child, she worked for this company for about 2 weeks and they never paid her even though she did the show amount tthey expected, running all over the place, being out late, all so she could provide a home, and then they dont pay, what the *** is that ***. i wouldnt suggest that anyone work for them. also what is up w/ this site that i`m expected to complain with no less than 100 words, must be part of the kirby company, figures, how the *** should i know the model of the vacuum, you people really are somthing and should be ashamed of yourselves for preying on hard working people that just want to make enough to provide for their families. you make promoses and don1t follow through. may all of your children go through the same when they get out in the real world, think about that its called karma baby

Kirby has nothing to do with this site, it's the site's owners who decided on a 100 word minimum. I hope your daughter went to the labor board.

Roxanne, I totally get you. Im not a single parent, but I am trying to put myself through school and I put my heart and soul into all of this, because I was determined to not be another failure story. After 2 months of over 80 hrs/week, working everyday except sundays, never getting to see any of my friends or having the luxury of making plans because of this "work". And what do I have to show for it? I think I made less than 1000. If I worked that many hours for any other job, I would have at least 3000, 4000.

In the end I quit because the price of MAYBE getting to make 2000 a week was too much, and I need to work somewhere where I have a steady check.

And its true that a lot of the salesmen are horrible people, people who force customers to buy a vaccum to get them out of their houses..but not everyone is.

I wish I had known these things at training, because I hate being tricked into commitments. But I learned a lot about people during these last few months.

#227213

thats correct, i said hard working people. i realize that there are many lazy scags out there, but there are many more people that want and need to provide for their families, especially single parents male and female alike, and this company makes promises of a paycheck that these people don`t get because they dont make a sale or they were unable to reach the required showing goal whatever.

these people were promised pay regardless of a sale or not. my child, a single mother happens to be a very hard worker, who turned down other more reputable companies to work for kirby, because they promised great pay and they didnt follow through. now i`m sure that whoever hit on my first complaint, and called them a bunch of lazy dirtbags or whatever, also works for kirby writing this *** ***.

are you a sinle parent trying to provide AND put yourself through school at the same time, probally not, you sit home on YOUR lazy *** and write this *** and insulting ***. just remember KARMA BABY, it`ll always *** you in the butt, and i`ll laugh

#227107

"preying on hard working people that just want to make enough to provide for their families." What a joke. 99% of these complaining ppl are lazy and want sleep more then they want success and its everyone elses fault as to why they are broke.

Free carpet cleaning = 3 hour headache. Thanks Kirby.

I am ashamed to admit I fell for this scam. I had a feeling that that is what it was..but I let it happen. May this serve as a warning to the rest. This woman rings my doorbell and asks if she can do a little patch of carpet just to get my opinion on how it works so they can get some points for their contest, "it will only take a few minutes." Next thing I know there's a man in my house with a vaccum, going on about how i can save myself from allergies if only I had one of these (I dont even have allergies). My hoover was pretty good, but they took it. Yes their vaccum may have suctioned a tiny bit more but honestly for the amount of money I paid it's really not worth it, and from all of the things I've been reading about the cord sparking and the vaccum ruining carpet, I can't imagine anyone using this vaccum for a cleaning business. After 3 hours the other salesguy shows up and puts more pressure on me telling me all the prices he can lower it to and partly because of my splitting headache, and nervousness from there being 2 random guys in my house, I caved. Now I just want my old vaccum back. What a horrible experience. I'm going tomorrow to return this.

I just had these guys in yesterday and I luckily got them to leave after two hours saying that I would consider it. Now I know they are coming back today and I am getting really nervous.

I just have no frigging back bone, I have the hardest time to say no to people.

At least now I am not going to let them in and just give them a firm no. I just wanted them out of my house!!

I have been there! We had a Kirby sales man/woman do a demo for us in our home.

Her boss took off with her ride and left her at our house for around 2 hrs. We had to be some place and could not get rid of this woman. I started to pack up her demo vac and she got the hint and left.

Worst thing ever! Never buy anything from a door to door sales man/woman.

Okay, here's the thing about Kirby. I know a lot about vacuums (strangely enough) and Kirby machines are built really well. I know many people that have the same machines they've had for 30 years.

However, their style hasn't changed much, ever. And you can ONLY buy them from one of these door to door salesmen. Absurd!

Your Dyson will last you a long time, just make sure to take care of it :)

Kirby didnt pay me!

I worked for a kirby dealership outside columbus for 2 months in the spring of 2008. We were trained to plan to spend 6 hours in the home once we were let in to "clean 1 room of carpet for free". The co. set me up to "clean 1 room of carpet for free" with at least 2 people who were mentally challenged. I sold 6 vacuums & the jerks only paid me $240!! The owner told me i must have sold to people with bad credit. There is no way the things are worth $1800. We were trained to ask that much so when u offer it for $1200 the customer feels "special" & lucky.

Uh mr kirby victem, she prob tells you he made me do it all the time or i was drunk so it doesnt count hahhahhahaha n u believe her too. Right after 3 days of orentation and training she had no idea she was goin in customers homes, god prey for her no common sence....

thers prob pictures on wall of people showin kirbys in houses the box its self she got traind on says in home demonstrations lol. Iv seen people w memtal retardations get demos its a script dug u dont follow directions u dont get results. Can ur gf cook?

Lol oh wait she was told it was meat loaf amd she coked a turkey instead. Dum young cant follow directions.......

#1071969

U must b super high or dumb to work 2 mo no pay or both. Comen sence. So stop bsing cuz u suck more that a kirby ever can.

#1071968

Yo so seince u didnt pay attention to contracts you signed and anything in training like most young people do. Finance companies take a percentage depending on loan ex they got bad credit fin company holds 40 percent for liability reasons cuz they are taking risk.

Look at paper work look at facts remember what u were told and light bulbs come on. Ur parents prob have to tell u things million times too so its not them its you genious

#227110

You worked for 2 MONTHS with no pay???? So after the first pay day you gave them the benefit of the doubt and worked a second pay period, then got no check so decided to work 2 more pay periods b4 you quit??? What ever :x

#220254

Kirby lied to my girlfriend several times. I'll list a few...

LIE #1.) She was told she would be a Customer Service Representative. After training she was forced to be a Door to Door Salesman.

LIE #2.) They stated that her 3 appointments per day would be appointed for her by thier "Appointment Committee". False. In fact she was forced to go door to door with several smokers in a small car. She came home to our daughter and our non-smoking house smelling like she just left a bar. Zero appointments.

LIE #3.) She would be paid $520 a week even if she didn't make any sales.

LIE #4.) They later stated that she would only get paid if she went to her 3 appointments per day, which would be scheduled by the company. They made zero appointments, and now won't pay her because she didn't go to 3 appointments per day. Not even 1 person would let them into their house, let alone 3... Every day... So they won't pay her because of THEIR negligence to schedule appointments, as they had promised.

LIE #5.) They promised consistent and reasonable hours, which was a lie. Sometimes door to door salespeople don't get home until 2am, eyes bloodshot from exhaustion and smoky travel.

#220247

This same thing just happened to my girlfriend. And worse.

She is the victim of Kirby. Kirby is evil.

#201443

I wrote the complaint on 2010-10-12. I wish i knew who said i made it up. At the training we were told that there were people whose only job is to search out negative comments online and try to stop them.

#199877

Actually they did pay me. I just made this up because they fired me.

However a lawyer friend of mine is advising me to delete this letter as it can get me into a lot of trouble. How do I go about doing this?

You have no idea!

I have worked at Kirby and still work there. I have been everything but a owner with the business. I have met more people who have bought the Kirby and still love it to this day. I know for a fact that alot of you exaggerate to the extreme levels of lying. And another thing we dont have a computer that we can put addresses in saying "Oh these people already seen a demo, or opps they've been knocked a few times!" There is no scam, in buying a Kirby or working for Kirby. If you don't like the product, then who cares I know its not that hard to say NO or open the door and say bye! I have been in alot of houses, and let me tell you, rarely have I ever got a NO I NEED YOU TO LEAVE! You all always say something different than that. No offense, but we are trained to be salesman/woman that what SALES mean, we learn what objectives consumers say, so if maybe a few more people could just outright say NO, it would make it easier on us and you! So lets not hate on us 100%, because you have a lot to do with how your certain situation went about with your Kirby salesman/woman.

"I have met ... people who have bought the Kirby and still love it to this day".

I have no issue with this statement. I also know several folks who have and like their Kirby.

"I know for a fact that alot of you exaggerate to the extreme levels of lying." Really? How do you know this? How can you know so much about people, and yet not know how to spell and form a correct sentence?

I find that a person's command of the English language (or whatever their primary language is) to be directly proportionate to their knowledge of the product they are trying to sell to me, and I'm fairly certain that I am not alone. If you want to positively represent your company, but you do not have a command of your respective language, you should probably stay off of message boards.

"And another thing we dont have a computer that we can put addresses in saying 'Oh these people already seen a demo, or opps they've been knocked a few times!'". What are you typing on now? Chances are, it's a computer, and it's likely you have access to an application that will do exactly what you claim you cannot do.

"There is no scam, in buying a Kirby or working for Kirby.

In fact, scams are often reported by customers. Even one scam is not "no scam".

"If you don't like the product, then who cares I know its not that hard to say NO or open the door and say bye!" How do you know this? In fact, lots of people find it hard to say no to someone, especially to people who deliver the hard luck stories lots of Kirby salespeople are known for. The fact is that Kirby salespeople *rely* on the general public's inability to easily say "no".

"I have been in alot of houses, and let me tell you, rarely have I ever got a NO I NEED YOU TO LEAVE!" This statement speaks only of you, albeit your side of the story, and has nothing to do with other folks' experiences.

"You all always say something different than that." This is likely because they all experience something different than that. As it's likely for folks to be truthful when complaining about a service, it's also likely for a representative of the service to disagree. All that proves is that the representative is loyal to the service. "No offense, but we are trained to be salesman/woman that what SALES mean, we learn what objectives consumers say, so if maybe a few more people could just outright say NO, it would make it easier on us and you!" Well, yea, I'm offended, as should anyone else who has been contacted by a salesperson, on the phone or in person.

Really? A simple "no"? I can tell you, truthfully, saying "no" does nothing for me, or anyone else I've spoken to about Kirby, or most any other, salespeople. "So lets not hate on us 100%, because you have a lot to do with how your certain situation went about with your Kirby salesman/woman." That works both ways.

You began the previous paragraph with "You all always say something different..." You are correct, though, when you say that folks have a lot to do with how their situation goes. They should have kept their doors shut, and called the police as soon as the salesperson became pushy.

#371458

I was a previous employee for Kirby, however I worked in the office department which handled banking, contracts etc and in my time saw the scams, schemes and fraudulant behaviour, which was depitced not only towards it's customers but more so towards it's employees. Don't be fooled. Do not respond to their job advertisments. The easiest way to avoid this situation is to identify the generic "$2500 p/m + No sales experience" catch phrase. I can guarentee you, you will never see a pay check like this. Kirby target young, uneducated, inexperienced and impressionable people to be apart of thier sales teams as they are easier to persua, manipulate and mold and are easier to profit from. They will tell you that you will win trips overseas and get an upscale annual pay of $70,000-$100,000. You will be lucky to accumulate $200 in two weeks whilst working 12 hour days etc and if you do happen to make a sale your manager will probably tell you they have cancelled so they can profit wholey from the sale.

The machines that you purchase on average for $3400.00 are infact purchased by the distributer for not even $500.00. The door knockers do not mention that it is an in home demonstration which is actually illegal and you can request them to leave because they haven't provided you with the correct information, also it is illegal in NSW for door knockers to disturb you after 6, so don't respond. The admin employees are encouraged not to respond to cancellations, which makes it extremely hard for you to cancel in the event that you change your mind. The door knockers will approach you with a 'free' raffle ticket as apart of a promotion the 'company' is holding. This free raffle ticket could possibly end up costion you $3400! Instead of refusing to give them your details, give them a false number, because I can assure you they will persist until they get those details. The telemarketers will tell you, you have won a free carpet clean as a result of the raffle tickets that the door knockers gave you, at no point in any of this will they mention the name 'Kirby' as they are enforced not to because of it's terrible reputation and in small writing at the bottom of the raffle ticket you will see the name hidden. The sales reps are encouraged to target those living in housing commisions, overweight woman, elderly people and newly made mums as they are easier to sell too, scare and manipulate. I was given an older model kirby which was a trade in by the company I worked for and it is by far the best vacuum on the market, however the Kirby experience is not one that is positive, legitimate or in any way trust worthy and I would avoid Kirby all together. Just remember not to subject anger towards the Kirby sales reps, door knockers or telemarketers as they are being lied to just as much you. It's a cult like sect that brainwashes it's uneducated and vulnerable employees to belive that they will become millionairs and live a life of luxury.

Hope this has given some insight!

@PissedConsumer371458

As a former employee of kirby as well, i agree 100%. The ad they put out that hooked me said "1895 guaranteed salary, no experience required!".

What they didnt tell me was that guaranteed pay was only if you got 60 demonstrations a month. I could barely get one a day! I had to do my own neighborhood knocking, call the van to get them back with the machine, and they threatened to leave me multiple times in neighborhoods that were at least 5 to 20 miles from my home! They even left me at one customers house overnight that was a few hundred miles away!

I felt so bad asking them to stay! When the customers called the driver to force her to come get me, all she said was "sorry, there was no room in the hotel room". You shouldn't be making jokes to angry potential customers! That's bad salesmanship.

I was told to knowingly lie about the machine to people. I am honest, and that was one of the main reasons i left the job! They told me to be pushy, then apologized to the customers when they said i was pushy! In conclusion, I would say its good to get sales experience from them, but don't expect the money they promise you that you could make, and don't trust when your boss says they make BANK!

They told me to lie to customers about how long i work, how much i made, and how good the kirby is. Get the experience for your resume if you can survive without guaranteed pay, and get out!

#360141

I just allowed a guy from kirby to come and clean my carper, he did everything but that, I think that if the company tell you to clean the carpet in exchange for our attention the sale person should do that, this guy dust all the room, and only clean a square foot of the carper, i missed the football game because i was going to get my carpet clean and it was not true. Upfront i toll this guy i was not going to buy the product, he insisted so much but at the end when he realized i was not going to buy was, his attitude change and he was rude and un polite.

I hate that, we let you in our house and then we are disrespected, Yesteday was the last time i ever let a kirby sales person coming to my house, by the way i was sold by the product but after the salesman attitude i change my mind.

not worth to make money for people like that. :?

#341745

Anyone else notice that whenever a Kirby employee writes a comment they can't spell or from complete sentences? No wonder these illiterate dip**** have no class and are SO DAMNED brainwashed. Sad really.

#265296

I have no complaints against Kirby, it's the pushy sales people that don't take no for an answer.

These people ring the doorbell in late afternoon, when I'm trying to get kids to do homework, dinner started, etc. No prob. However, after I explAin about a dozen rimes, I am not interested, they will NOT leave!

I actually had to call my neighbor and have him come over and kick the guy out!

I later heard that these sales people are mostly newly released inmates, sont know how true that is, but I definitely will never open the door to them again.

#198817

listen, dont knock his vocabulary. you still get the point hes trying to make.

I also wor for Kirby and am going to be a distributor soon. like he said, its a SALES job. if you dont sell the machine, you dont get paid. simple as that.

selling the machine is your job, you get paid based on that. lets say you were a carpenter, if you couldnt build a house, would you still expect someone who hired you to build their house to pay you? no, i think not.

so if you cant sell the machines, its no ones fault but your own. so dont call the company a "scam" just because you cant do your job...

Rude kirby sales rep.

Was just called by a kirby representative. They called me from 3 different numbers. I called back to find out who this was. She answered the phone talking very fast stating her name was Deb. I asked her who I was speaking with again and she told me I TOLD YOU MY NAME IS DEB. I asked with what company not what your name is. She was very hostile on the phone and was getting upset with me asking her questions. She asked me my name of course I gave her a false name. She asked when did I receive the call I said either yesterday or 2 days ago. She said and you're just calling us back now? I said I am calling this number because it keeps calling me and I would like to find out who you are and why you are calling me. Again she was hostile about the fact that I was questioning her on who the company was and why they kept calling me. She said well you can thank your friend or family member for giving out your information. I again said and who are you, she finally said Kirby. I said I do not know what Kirby is, she said well I've been trying to tell you. I said fine tell me who you are. She proceeded in a nasty tone of voice to tell me about they company. When she was finished I told her I am declining the offer, she asked if she could have my number and she will take me off the call list. The numbers that they are calling from are.. 609-931-**** and 609-931****. The other day when I got the first call, I did not answer and the phone rang again about 5 minutes later with the other number. Now this is my cell phone and I'm sick of this. I am on the do not call list and I do not believe that anyone would give out my number as they know how I feel about people calling me that I do not know.

Do you have so few friends that you call back every missed number on your phone? OMG! I can not even imagine if i tried to do that it would SERIOUSLY take like all day and stuff.

#165164

You are the rude one, should have asked and specified what company you were asking about rather than who.

Kirby is known for be elusive when it comes to answer company questions. I think this might be part of their training.

I regrettably bought a Kirby and am now having billing problems with the independent dealer. I called and asked to speak with accounts payable The woman on the other end was rude to me also and said WHATS THAT! So one would think if you’re a business and you have no idea what accounts payable is you have no business running one. I was told one person runs the collection department but he doesn’t talk with people in regards to their account.

By now I’m getting frustrated, I ask where they are located she responds with I don’t give out personal company information, WHAT you cant tell me your business location to clear up a billing issue! I asked who runs the business and once again I was told we are not allowed to talk about company information.

I hung up, I really do think the Kirby Company allows independent dealers to set their own rules and have allowed these dealers to give the parent company a bad name. I hope that all independent dealers go out of business and Kirby rethinks their marketing

Best thing to do is contact your telephony company, and let them know about the calls. Also you could find the contact details for the Kirby head office, and send them a complaint.

I'm sure they would be sympathetic. Hope that helps.

So how do you actually do your 15 showings that are required? You do it by lying and forcing your way into people’s homes.

It is a know. Fact that Kirby doesn’t pay. So to all the executives and distributors saying Kirby is a good opportunity you’re lying. A friend of mine named Kristian never got paid and he worked his *** off.

You Kirby *** wouldn’t be able to do a real job. That all I got to say.
