*General Comment: Lies? Yeah, sure.
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Debating the cover up
*UPDATE Employee: Your statements are all lies
*Consumer Suggestion: The Kirby Company
Throughout the 3 days of unpaid training, we learned how to use a Kirby vacuum cleaner and pack it in a box. Okay??... This was not meantioned earlier. Also that we would travel in a company van with a group and our team leader and that they would put us in a house to show people these vacuums and that all we had to do was show them the cleaner. She emphasized how much money we could be making and all the bonuses we could make by selling these on top of our weekly $350 wage and that we could win trips and scholorships even if we weren't in school. She definately had us sold on how much we could be making so we decided to give it a shot. What's the worst that could happen right? hmm.. yeah...
On our first day on the job we get there and are packing our bag for the demos we would have to do in peoples houses. As were getting ready our team leader (John Carvel) says, "We're going to PA." Pennsylvania?! They did not mention once that we would be going out of state! So we drive 1.5 hrs. to PA (In Carvel's car, not a company van) and end up going to the middle of nowhere where there's no service and your neighbor is a mile away. Also Carvel is driving like a maniac down country roads almost getting into an accident multiple times. The next day he ends up getting pulled over for doing 46mph in a 30. Very professional... To get us into the houses our team leader would lie and say."Hey I've got some college students in the car who are trying to win scholorships for school, mind if they come in?" Note: None of us are in school... On the way home 2 of they guys that were with us that had been with the company for awhile decided that it would be alright to start drinking. This didn't make sense because they made it clear that no drugs or alcohol were allowed on the job. And we were suspicious that Carvel was doing drugs too while on the job. This scared me because we were in a different state and I didn't even know these people.
The next day we go to PA again. This day there were 7 of us that had to fit into his Honda Pilot. He said one of us had to sit on someone's lap or one of us had to go home. So another girl decided she was gonna drive her car to PA. At this point on the way to PA for the second time, me and my friend weren't gonna do this anymore and somehow word got to Carvel in the car in front of us. So he pulls over and comes over to us and says you guys can go home if you don't want to do this anymore and he suggested we take the other girls car home. She didn't want us to take her car so we continue to drive a little longer and we stop at a gas station and he tells us that we can stay here or go watch demos. So we stay at the gas station and they never came back! We had to get a ride home! Nobody even called or texted us later to make sure we were ok!
This is not how a business should be run. I have nothing against trying to sell something to someone but it should not be done like this and nobody should be treated like this. Leaving us in a different state should not have been an option. Something needs to be done about this!
