I answered a post on craigs list abou IMMEDIATE HIRING!!!!! and this is the exact way they put it





No where in here it says door to door sales person and no where in here it say that if you dont show the kirby 60 times in a month that u dont get paid all this stuff i learned after the three day training class.

They market it up so high that they want us to discount it a little to make it seem like they're getting a deal but the arnt in all fact that you can talk us down all the way to $1000 after that they tell us to leave. My first sale my manager was there and the woman had said no alot of times and at times she had said it with force and meanness in it but he didnt give up i got home later that night and i felt really bad for her because she said yes just to get us out and she had already talked us down to $1000. And if rite away if the person stays strong and not wanting to buy they tell us do a fast job so we can leave and show it off more not do a good job but a fast job.I am the nicest one you'll met a want to do a good job and not a fast job i dont really care if i sell one im not going to sell them any more and i reccemend that no one buys or sells them.

A Kirby lady came to my door . I let her in an she said she would clean my carpet.

He partner was another lady . Both looked okay. I shoved the Kirby hose up one of the ladies *** while the other pumped the attachments. It was fun to watch and do.

I like Kirby. come any time.

afterwards i thru the Kirby out the front door and shoved the *** to the ground. I then pisssed on both.


Just had a pair of young Kirby vacuum sales reps ring my doorbell at 9:01 pm. Now I normally would not answer the door this late but, I had just come home from the shooting range and I suspect they were the ones in the Van 3 doors down from our home.

I answered my door with Sig in hand at my side, thanked them for stopping by, told them I already have a Hoover. They left rather briskly.


I live in an area where door to door sales is very popular and I've had many different Kirby sales people come by ranging from teenage girls to middle aged men. I feel bad for them knowing the company's practices so I try not to be too mean, but I will be if I've already said no politely and someone tries to enter my house anyway.

Usually I just tell them that I'm going to give them some advice worth more than a vacuum sale, which throws them off because at that point they are still pretending to be a singing telegram or carpet cleaning service. I tell them Kirby is notorious for screwing salespeople and then give them a business card for a solar panel or alarm company who came by earlier.




yep I fell for this scam to but they said 15 time a week but our van had like 9 people and we had to show it about tree times a day to meet that quota fake as *** you aint showing that three times a day they are just making you work for free so the can make all the money and they say 500 a week only if you get those quotas made I worked 144 hours in two weeks don't work for these people it is just a big company that wants to make more money off of you showing it.. but cool people I cleaned there house for I smoked a bowl with them hahaha


This Kirby man and old lady knocked on our door at 9 pm.they said they were offering free carpet cleaning one room. we said we were NOT INTERESTED and slammed the door.

the old women yelled out please buy this Kirby we need the sale bad. after we yelled back not interested. she broke our flower pots and stormed off.

we called the police and said they drove off in a dirty white van and the driver was a fat man with zits all over his fat face. hope they caught them.


You are a dumb ***. Kirby is not a scam.

You just could not do your job. Therefore meaning you could not do a full demo and hit a demo count to make a guarantee. A guarantee is only if you agree and put your foot forward and do the full job. There's a catch and everything in life and doing your job is one of them.

There for if you don't do your job you obviously will not get your pay. I am a Kirby salesman I only ever been or king here a month. Seeing this *** on the Internet makes me *** pissed because you people are dumb. I make around $2500 a week.

Sales is not easy you can just walk in there and make a lot of money you actually have to try.

Kirby is a job for people that struggle in life and need somewhere to start over those of you that don't know what you're talking about and talk *** on the Internet need to not be as dumb as you are. Thanks


All right, there is hope for the human race! Someone who works for a living and makes in one week as much as those lazy no good deabeats make in 2 months.

Opportunity! Carry on the tradition! 101 years in business and still consistently selling over 2000 machines per day yes per day providing opportunity to those that want to work! Good for you!

Go get'm Tiger! To those that didn't make it repeat after me, "Would you like an apple pie with your order?".


I bet you say that a lot. Must suck to act all high and mighty when you really work fast food.

I have an education and make good money at a real job. Please try to get a life.


That's the problem, these Burger King and McDonald's employees come in and try to do a business that makes legitimate money and they are such failures they can't realize it's their own fault they don't make money lol


BK and McD's employees make MORE money than you AND in a less humiliating, soul-sucking fashion!


LMAO! Go away. You're drunk!


Question!!! I recently got hired as an appointment setter for a Kirby distribution company.

The person that hired me PROMISED ,& GUARANTEED me $5,000 per month...

She said it didn't matter how many appointments I set up ,or how many of those appointments resulted in a sale, I would be GUARANTEED that base pay... I had no opinion on this company either way, I just would like to know what I'm getting myself into, since I have seen mostly horrible reviews researching this job/company.


Doesn't sound good unfortunately all Kirby reps are independent as well as the area distributors and distributors. Never heard of a appointment setter being guaranteed 5000 a month. get them to put it in writing if not forget it!


How's that 5k a month?? LMAO. Funny how the reported wages for appointment setters at the Kirby page on Glassdoor is $10/hour and $700/monthly for canvassers, but you honestly believed you would get 5k/month!!!




you sound like a kirby robot. it is a scam they hire *** loads of people hoping they all sell one kirby then they find ways out of paying them by telling them the deals was a bad one.

they sell the kirby for 1000 and get at least 300 out the deal.

only paid like 700 for the machine. they always wait until time to pay to tell the person that the person canceled or the deal was bad.

the workers are rtold sometimes their demo didn't count later so they never reach the show the product this many times you get money.

you sir are the dumb ***, you can't pay the people unless they have good deals and many times that is not easy to get.

putting in false ads, and not paying the people is what makes it a scam.




Yeah its unfortunate that those type of dealers & distributors exist, but Gene Windfeldt answered one of those same ads as well as I and he went on to become the president of the Kirby company and bought an island with the money he made. He's retired and still makes $250k per year on overrides from the Distributors he promoted who also became millionaires.

This year Kirby celebrates 101 years in business & a company with one of the greatest products & opportunities for anyone willing to work hard. Highest satisfaction rate of over 99.9% with the product. Unfortunately its not for every one, but its certainly not a scam.

Some people unfortunately couldn't sell their mom if they wanted too and that's ok. PLease repeat after me, "Would you like an apple pie with your order?"


Get it thru your thick head: just because you have made bad choices in life and have no other career opportunities except to peddle vacuums or work fast food, doesn't mean the rest of us are in the gutter! I don't believe you are successful and I don't believe you are educated. You may have yourself fooled otherwise, buy you aren't fooling others!
