I was so excited when I saw the ad on craigslist. It said 'want to have fun and earn 400+ bucks a week?' so I did what they said in the ad, come to this address and fill out an application. The girl who helped everybody with the applications was really nice, Brittany was her name, blonde bubbly person.
So then she told us we would NOT be knocking on peoples doors, we would have appointments to go to every day. She was really good at NOT saying we would be selling 2000 dollar vacuums to poor little unsuspecting people.
So we went thru 3 days of UNPAID training. It was all about learning how to use this Kirby vacuum, and dont get me wrong it was a SWEET vacuum. But the training was really boring and should have been paid.
Then we went out into the 'field' as they called it. That was a creepy white van with a bunch of weird people smoking cigarettes. But they were nice people. Anyway we drove to millions of different citites and the manager of our 'van' would drop us off and make us knock on doors in 100 degree weather, in DRESS CLOTHES!! I got really tan on my arms though. lol
But then we realized we had to have 10 demos a week and no set appointments. We were always knocking on doors.
Then when you finally got somebody to let you in and 'clean their house' and you tried to use the sales techniques they taught you, the people got mad because is a 2000 dollar vacuum and nobody can afford it.
Then one day we were in circleville ohio and my manager pretty much raped me - his name was nick, and ladies stay away from him cuz he will take advantage of you being not as strong as him. That was the end for me.
