My name is Jeremiah Franklin, I'm 19 yrs old, Im from Norfolk, NE. I entered the world of KIRBY the summer of 2008. I had no idea what a Kirby vacuum was, let alone how to work the one i had at home. I went through 3 days of pretty easy training on how to use it,how to assemble and disassemble. Went out into the field on a Thursday and sold my first Kirby on a Saturday. Sold it for around $1800.00 over a 3yr loan. These folks had all hard wood floors and leather furniture, the only scrap of carpet was a 6x10 area rug and that's what i did my presentation on.

After that Ive averaged anywhere between 15-20 sales per month with the occasional big month of 30+ sales. Its my experience that its easily the most honest work I've ever done. Its fun and one can make mass amounts of money without much effort so long as you truly believe in the product and the company's programs. I personally grossed an average of $3500.00-$4000.00 month in and month out.

Oh and for the record and all the skeptics, the Kirby Home Care System is worth every penny we ask for them and then some. The only reason past sales reps who were unsucessful post negative feedback on the Kirby or the business is because they're closed minded and were not 100% committed to the programs. As for the rest who had not the greatest experience with a Kirby rep, I am sorry for your experience. You unfortunately dealt with a very unprofessional sales rep/manager. In closing, Kirby as a whole both the business and the equipment are not a scam, joke, or anything else its been made out to be on the internet. The next time a professional looking Kirby rep knocks on the door, please give him a chance to earn your business. If they fail then they fail, but don't make that an excuse to verbally bash a good standing and respectable company thats been around for over 100 years.

Thank You,

Jeremiah Franklin of the Great Plains Division

IF YOU'RE WILING TO SIT IN A VAN OVERSTUFFED WITH PEOPLE THIS JOB IS FOR YOU. IF YOU'RE WILING TO WASTE UR ENERGY IN A UNREWARDING JOB, THIS JOB IS FOR YOU. IT IS ONLY REWARDING WHEN YOU GET LUCKY AND SELL IT TO A ***. IF YOURE SMART, YOU CAN BUY IT FOR ABOUT 800.

CHEAPEST PROLLY 600. AND THEY MAKE 25 PROFIT. BUT THEY TRAIN U TO BE PUSHY WITH SALES PITCHES, AND TACTICS. I HATE IT BECAUSE I HAVE NO HEART TO SELL IT TO SENIORS THAT NEED IT, FOR A RIDICULOUS PRICE.

THE PRODUCT YES IS A SUPER VACUUM, AND GREAT BUT.. JUST HOW THEY SELL IT ISNT RIGHT. THEY SAID. WHATS MORE IMPORTANT FOR THE PPL TO LIKE YOU OR THE VACUUM, THE RIGHT ANSWER WAS YOU.

SO ITS A MANIPULATIVE COMPANY.

IM GLAD I REALIZED THSI IN TIME OR I WOULDVE WASTE SO MUCH TIME AND ENERGY ON THIS ***.:cry

look guys i just started ive read all the reviews but i also listened during my training.... kirby isnt a scam im 18 this is my first job, and to to that off i didnt get to finish highschool... so i couldnt get hired anywhere else,i was at home and i get this piece of paper on my doo and it felt like a miracle....

and that it was guys ive sold 4 vacuum's 800 bucks plus 200 for bonus start up in my first week!

you know why? because i listened during my training. ive heard people omplaining are we getting paid for this man im wasting my gas cause there not paying me, DUDE ARE WE EVER GONNA GET PAID... all those comments were made by ignorant people who were older than me and had jobs before this.

my point is kirby isnt bad aslong as you work hard, and try not to "brow beat" an 80 year old women into buying it,if she really wants her house clean she'll buy it cause its a *** of a machine

BISSELLS are not twelve different cleaners in one, they suck. As I say research before you say something.
