to begin with.....  i am a former employee of k & g distributing and i am hear to give you the dirty details of the scammers inside and out. not only was i hired under the assumption i was to be "setting appointments" but i was just one of their multiple people hired that week. upon arriving for an interview i realized the parking lot somewhat resembled a junk yard..... i was forced to sit in a non paid training class and read scripts for three hours among the apparent illiterate crackheads amongst the others hired. i decided since im fresh out of high school that i would give it a shot...... day one after being told i need to bring in family referals and call them i soon realized that they would further call them for me even as if they did not say they werent interested the first time......3 days went by and very quickly i realized not one of the multiple people trained with me were there anymore, as any normal human being would i popped the question to my supervisor who informed me that they had all quit hahah riiight..... when hired it is explained to you that you will have one paid meeting every month where awards would be givin ....FALSE unless you kissed a** you werent getting s**t but a piece of recycled paper with your name spelled wrong on it......soon after i had become a ligitimate scamming employee just like the rest i was offered a promotion that of an assistant manager/recruiter aka trainer i was promised incentives off of the poor people whom i had to hire based on well absolutley nothing(literally if you have a pulse you get the job) i was also promised a $1 raise hmm sounded alright or so i though not only was the full time schedule split shift but you were required to show up for their unscheduled meetings scheduled the day of again not paid and usually the message was relayed via text message (professional i know) the meeting eventually turned into threats of job removal due to the fact that i had actually believe it or not befriended someone that worked with me for upwards of 50 hours a week so sorry didnt know this was a cult.....  THERE WERE ABSOLUTLEY NO SICK OR PTO DAYS i had asked to leave early due to a loss in the family and  the owner honestly asked if i could tough it out because the team really needed me!(totally true) after denying her and taking my right as a normal human being and leaving early for the funeral they sat me down for a meeting the next day to ask me if i was serious about this and then proceeded to announce to the "phone room" that another girl was the new assistant manager hmm weird i lost my position and raise over a choice to go to a goddamn funeral.... the constant drama that went on is above and beyond that of a legit buisness and i was there scapegoat i was always sent in to find out what she said about who ect by my supervisors. they made it apparent that you were not to hang out with anyone that you worked with outside of work which ok understandable we have to keep it professional and keep work at work......that is unless the supervisor or owner invites you out than your in the clear to get wasted and talk s**t about everyone......the after work parties turned into what some might call orgys/girls gone wild im talking slutty dancing cheating on spouses all around hos. these parties were not to be spoke of ever again wonder why...... the giant insane aslyum looking room filled with 10-30 people depending on the day was infested with ants and about the nastiest carpet i have ever seen in my entire life(yes the carpet of a place that sells vacuum cleaners) were ordered to push your customer untill they either hung up or involuntarily set up (yes we sent representatives out even if we knew they cancelled.) although cancelling would be impossible because the number we leave them always goes unanswered and well guess what the mail box is full imagine that hahahahah the 50 plus hours a week included working saturdays 9-1 which doesnt sound bad untill friday evening when they tell you that you have to be there at 7am for breakfast and games aka musical chairs the chacha slide (note if you did not participate in these foolish a*s games you were sent home with no pay check!) these games were played in the salesroom(ghetto a** warehouse) in front of all the guys just so the supervisors could make fun of you in front of them. often times we had to stand on stage and scream kirby chants (again no participation typically meant punishment) long story short here after torchering myself for those few years i realized i didnt have to scam people all my life to be a good working citizen and that there is other opportunity out there oh and guess what one of there favorite quotes is "liars donts have buyers" well seeing as how i understand the whole buy low sell high market i dont exactly call K&G buying the kirbys for $300 and selling them for almost $2000 an honest and forthcoming company its unfortunate that anyone can sit there for the rest of their life knowing that day in and day out their scamming there customers and furthermore there own employees........ lesson learned get the f**k out now before your sucked into the dishonest cult like ways of k & g distributing!!!!!!!!!!! oh also if hired in the appointment setting department they give you three days to set an appoinment off of a cold call list or you will get fired based on some sh**ty accusation that "your not producing" hahaha good luck!!!

First of all, over 25 employees for over 6 years?! If that were true then why would you be hiring 20-25 every week! As a former employee I know for a fact there are only 7 people that have been there for 6 years and they are either the owners or related to the owner minus AP & JJ. From the time you start to the time youre fired/quit you are taken advantage of, lied to, manipulated, and bullied. Theres only opportunity here for those who don't have a heart. So to say that 25 people have been there for 6+ years is just another scamming lie....REMEMBER: Liars don't have buyers!!!

#5 Consumer Comment

Prove it

AUTHOR: Kaynicole - (United States of America)

POSTED: Saturday, November 05, 2011

I am only a "consumer" who has never purchased a kirby, however, I have had these whack jobs in my home to do their "demonstrations." Honestly, the report written by the original poster was everything I thought K&G would be and I do not doubt her in the least as to the information provided. The man who came into my home had the very one minimum requirement of employment as given by the original poster....he had a heartbeat, and considering the amount of times he was sniffing his nose, using my bathroom and smoking ciggarettes, I assume he had a very fast beating one.

The idea intrigued me, heck I had ben vacuuming when they rang my bell, so why not? When I had answered the door it was a very attractive (not in a weird way :-p), nice and well spoken female, she explained to me who they were and that they wanted to clean the floors in two rooms in my house. I was thinking, "Oh boy, are the heavens shining down on ME today!." I couldn't have been more wrong.

By the end of the ordeal I was standing in the front yard, my very protective pittbull on her leash in front of me, a vacuum boxed up on my porch, 5 cop cars and 10 cops, and this cracked out salesman.

If you want to show the community you are a "good company to work for" then prove it. Quit responding to people trying to share their experiences and tell them "they should be ashamed of themselves," get out there and make a good impression upon yourselves because, and I can testify to this, if another Kirby sales person ever comes THROUGH my door again (and will not leave after multiple invitations to do so), I promise to use my right as a home owner in Texas to use deadly force.

Our company has been accredited by the Better Business Bureau for over 10 years. You never see happy people post how much they love their jobs on the internet because its something most people just dont think of doing when life is great. I have been with the company for over 6 years and there is over 25 employees that have been here as long if not longer than me. If anyone reading this is making a decision on not working for this company based on this persons views than I am sorry your missing out on an amazing opportunity and career path.

you obviously do not know who this is because I quit and anyone who understands realty would have realized by now that #1 the owners are there for themselves and themselves only and #2 they would only go out of their way for those who kiss a*s so enjoy that and see where it gets you:)

#1 UPDATE Employee

real deal

AUTHOR: real deal - (United States of America)

POSTED: Monday, August 08, 2011

I know who you are and it is sad that you would say things that just simply aren't true. I work at K & G and have for awhile so you probably know who I am too. If it wasn't for working there I wouldn't be where I am today. The owners and supervisors go out of their way for the people that work there. They are good people and run a great company. You were let go of because you were not doing doing your job and I am surprised they kept you as long as they did. Me and a lot of other people have been there for awhile because it is a good place to work. You ahould be ashamed of yourself for being so evil and malicious. K & G is one of things I ever did for myself and I am proud to work in the appointment department and proud to work for them and proud of the people I work with. Good luck to YOU
