I recently answered an employment add for a "constomer sevice representitive" upon arriving to the interview i saw it was a Kirby vaccuum service center. Perfect as i am looking for a job in service and repairs ie: customer service. During the course of the interview i asked three times if the position would require and door-to-door or direct sales (as i am repair technician) not having any interest in a sales position. I was told that i would not be required to do any sales for the position but if i assisted in a sale i would recieve a commision. So, i continued with the interview, assured of the position i applied for for was valid.
The next day i recieve a call from the interviewer and offered the position, i was told that it was a business casual attire required position, which as a customer SERVICE, sounded reasonable as i would be interfacing directly with the consumer about repairing there purchases. I went out that day, being given the job, and purchased the appropriate wardrob for the job, I spent two-hundred dollars in shoes and pants to be assured i had enough of a selection for a 5-6 day work week. The following day i arrived on time for the orientation! After sitting threw 4-hours of a presentation and being bombarded with the prospect of exotic trips, cars and trinkets i was very upset. I held my disposition for the rest of the meeting and informed the presenter i needed to speak with her after the meeting.
After everyone left the room i asked her if there was some confusion about the job a had recieved! I informed her, i was told in no uncertain terms that this was not a direct sales position i had been given, i stated that the interviewer and the person that called me granting me the job has blatantly misrepresented the position offered, and this had cost me two-hundred dollars in new clothes and 4-hours of my time for a job that i would never accept nor apply to. She asked that i call her later that day to talk somemore only to be told that were looking for people that were excited about the position they were offering. Obviously, that was not me, she did not offer any apology for the (confusion) nor offered to reimburse me for my time or losses due to thier MISREPRESENTATION of the position i was very clear to clarify before proceding with the interview......I am A 41 yr old single father of two children this clear case of fraudulant hiring practice has cost me the ability to pay my rent, as i was granted a job and counted on said job for the replacement of my investment of clothing for the non-existant clothing!!!!!! thankyou KIRBY now i have to move god knows where or go to a shelter!!!
