Kirby Vacuum — employment fraud/ false advertising
I'm sorry that I did not do the research on this before it happened but the situation is that my boyfriend has been out of work for 3 months and money was getting tight so he seen an ad in the paper for kirby and the ad said GUARANTEED $500 a week. So he called and decided to check into it because we needed the money. He went to the interview and they hired him then and there. Told him he was only putting vacuums together and not selling them that he would be paid every saturday reguardless of if his crew leader sold one or not. Then the 2nd day he was told the same thing. the first day out on the field they decided to tell him he had to get 15 shows a week to get paid well upon hearing this we thought it better to ask around and yes that was true so basically he worked all day that day 12 hours for nothing. They lied to him and THEN told him if he did not bring the stuff back in after he quit they would call the police and sure enough they did. So I'm thinking who in the world would want to steal a couple vacuum attachments some dirty rags and some manuals. He had to get another job we have a family to feed and it became clear after a few days they had lied big time and he was not getting paid. We simply did not have the time to return the stuff in a timely manner and so after all they put him through and the lies they told him they had the nerve to call the cops pathetic!
