This company takes a van full of young men and vacume cleaners in a neighborhood. There is a young lady who goes door to door and asks if we want our rugs or furniture cleaned for free. She say Kirby does this so they can earn college credits. When we say yes, she calls on the phone and a van drops someone off in 15 minutes. When she gives us the paper for our free cleaning that is when we realize we have to watch the demonstration. She told my neighbor it takes a half hour. They drop these kids off and leave them for two hours. I asked him to speed it up so I could start my supper, but he kept right on talking. I finally insisted that he clean the furniture as promised, and started to cook my supper. That was over 2 hours later. He called for a ride, and had to wait over 20 minutes.
When I got up the next morning I saw that my couch and recliner were full of water stains, so I called the number on my paper. The man said he would be in the neighborhood that day so he would stop in mid afternoon. I called him again late afternoon and he said he would be here within the hour. The young man who was at my neighbor's house told her they work until 9:00 at night. She also had to walk away from him to cook supper. The next time I called the phone was on the answering machine, as it was today. This is not good for Kirby Corporation. I would not take the vacume if it was free.
I was so frustrated in my career of waitressing. I came across an add that suggested no college degree, training provided. So, I called. Guaranteed 475 a week.Yeah right! I was promised 475 a week plus paid vacations, bonuses, the whole nine yards. BUT that first weekend I had to sell to my friends and family.
#1 I did not sign up for sales the add stated customer service. I thought I would be answering phones. That is customer service last I checked.Needless to say, I busted my ### that weekend with the promise of 200 dollar's per sale. Selling this 2000 dollar machine that noone I know could afford.
Now being my family, I sold two that weekend. So I thought. Light machine I don't think so, I spent 4 day's after that weekend flat on my back, after lugging a 60 lb. box up 3 flights of stairs to sell to a friend who out of her kindness for me bought a vacuum she couldn't afford. The other machine I 'sold' didn't qualify so that was a waste.
I returned my vacuum when I could walk with it only to find that after 2 WEEKS of breaking my back literally, and SELLING ' which was not in the job description, I'm customer service' I ended up with NOTHING! B/C my sales were not A+ credit, so they don't count.
I broke my back and sold a stupid vacuum to someone who can't afford and walked away with nothing. These people should not be allowed to con people the way they do. I will be the most addiment to say stay clear of Golden Circle in Southgton CT.
