Kirby said they will leave vacuum u dont know that u already bought it

This incident happened August 7 2008 in Jacksonville, Florida. Be aware of people that knocks at your door that demonstrate Kirby vacuum, very pushy even if you tell them you're not interested, what they do is they tell you that they will leave the vacuum for a while so you can think about it or try it.they leave papers explaining payments just in case you decide to to keep it ,but by the time that you call them to pick up the vacuum back, you already bought the vacuum because you only have 3 days to change your mind, which by the way was never mentioned or explained.The phone number was disconnected and if you look at the calendar your 3rd day is on a Sunday which is not a business day.What kind of trick was that now I'm stuck with a $1145.00 vacuum that I'm not happy about because I can't use it because I have a hard wood floor and it's too heavy.

First, I would just like to say that I feel bad for anyone who has wasted there time and really thought that they were going to get a good paying job because of some kind of false advertisement. These false advertisements can really put people’s hopes up and make people believe that they can actually get an easy way out and make some actual decent money. The truth is you really can’t get a good job at any place without any type of education, work experience or reference. Especially if you have any type of criminal background attach to you. Another thing is, if a company is being secretive about their business and does not discuss to you about your salary or position that you are applying for before you even start your job, then something is just seriously wrong. It just common sense when you can tell a professional business to an unprofessional business. When they are using profanity more then 5 times and seriously ignoring you when you are asking them some serious questions, that is just a sign that they are just looking for innocent people to use and manipulate to make them selves some money.

Second, I can understand why some people who worked at Kirby or is still currently working there may get mad at some people or their ex employees for complaining. It is their job and who likes people putting down their job. But the honest truth is they know the Kirby business has been doing their employees and customers wrong from day one after their training. If they are *** enough to not realize that then they can just tell them selves that they are a selfish person and don’t really care about anyone else’s feelings but their own. Be honest with yourself and put yourself in your ex employees and customers shoe. Would you want to be lied too when you work your butt off and never get paid for all the hard work you’ve done for the past week? Would you want some *** person that you don’t even know come knocking at your door at 9:00pm pressuring you to by a $2000 vacuum? I mean come on. Be real! Most people that were in this Kirby business did not even get a back ground check or even a simple drug test. How could the Kirby business even think about hiring people without checking their back ground knowing that they are going to be going into peoples home? THAT MY FRIENDS IS BAD BUSINESS!!!

You may get mad at me for telling the truth or even agree with me. But the matter of the fact is open your eyes and really understand and know what you are getting yourself into. Take some time to look up what company you are applying for and make sure that they are professional. To customers and employees, I do feel bad for all that you had to put up with from this business. You should always know never to open your doors just to anyone even if they say it’s to help them win a trip that you’re not even invited to. To all the employees working with the Kirby industry, I don’t mean to burst your bubbles and tell the truth to the world but it’s just something that seriously needs to be put out there. If you guys were so great, then why is it that your company has some of the worst complaints talked about everywhere? There’s something for you to think about. Oh and for the record, the only reason why I am writing this is because my mom and dad did get pressure into buying a Kirby and I am an ex employee for this company. That gives me every right to state what I have to say about this situation.

What is with these slimbag salesmen? Sunday Night at 6PM I leave to meet my brother. I get back at 7PM and there's a Kirby salesman in my house and my wife just about bought another one of these piece of garbage vacuums. She was told it was a full trade in, when I confronted the ***, there was of course a $1,800.00 for the updated model charge. I threw his *** out. There's your 3 day to cancel right there.

Now, I thought there was a solicitation law barring these non-educated idiots from barraging into your house on evenings, especially Sundays. I'm guessing he was casing out our house as it was the only time I wasn't there to tell him to leave again.

Message to Kirby, in this economy, you are going to go out of business. Your scams will not work anymore. If I want to buy one I'll look in the paper to find one for 10% of what you charge.

After Kirby vacuumed my bed the next day I woke up with bites all over my body and I discovered I now have bed bugs! The demo equipment they use is DISGUSTING AND INFECTED and they use the same equipment from house to house literally spreading parasites and bed bugs everywhere. DON'T LET THESE MONSTERS INTO YOUR HOUSE OR HOME!
