I saw an add on Craigslist and when I called the employment ad, I was told to come down immed. I had to make the appointment within the hour. The Company Name was La Piedra
which means "The Rock" in Spanish. When I filled out my application I found out it was really Kirby. In the Interview I was told there was a guarantee of 2050 although their training Video says 2800. a month for just showing the vacuum. They were wanting to get out word of mouth advertising. I was told that appointments would be set for me and that there was no door to door sales. This was all a lie. I asked them why the name was not Kirby and they said because if they did, no one would come.
I went to training for a week. All I heard was foul language, loud music and talk about strip clubs, getting drunk, using drugs,finding dates from potential customers and more. I was told to take the unit home for the weekend and sale my friends and family. I did not want to do this at first but felt pressured. I had to sign a paper with the serial number of the unit and then come Monday, I was told that I could not bring it home with me again and it would be put in the so called training van each day and if it got scratched, or something happened to it, I was responsible. I could no longer pack it up, that a field person would do that for me. This seemed unfair to me.
I was upset when during training the trainer told the story on how he used the kirby to show bedbug samples with the vacuum and told the customer that that is what he was eating while going down on his wife..
He has forgotten that he was being recorded. He even gave his consent
That next week, I found out we were going out in the field with the field reps. I thought we were all going in one vehicle, turns out it was in pickup trucks with people that were missing teeth and looked Very Unprofessional. I also had to wait 2 hours before they got ready and having enough, told them they were waisting my time. I told one of the front desk orientation sales ladies that I had an appointment on my own that evening and wanted to know know what time we would be back.. I was told they didn't know. I was told that I could not go to an appointment during the week on my own anymore.. seemed to be a bit unorganized to me.
The guy trainer Zack told me that if you can "KNOCK" your way in and drink with them till 2 in the morning then... go for it.
Very unprofessional I must say.... and I am still waiting for my pay
