So, this is yet another Kirby complaint.
Reg Enterprises located in Syracuse, NY is a distributor for Kirby Vacuums, SURPRISEEEEE! Of course they don't tell you that upfront.
I ignored all the red flags for this job offer I only went to the interview and the orientation which was yesterday and it wasn't until the first day of orientation that I learned I'd be selling Kirby vacuums...
> Selling Kirby vacuums never mentioned in initial ad for the job listing
It's basically one big trap, I can't find the original ad but it just claims that you don't need experience and you'll get excellent pay.
The lady even passed around copies of people's past checks I guess to try and prove that this job will actually make money, and one girl kept asking: "Are there any checks that show what someone made their first week??" and she just kept blowing her off saying "Well,I don't think so" or "Well...it's here somewhere"
their first week??" there was something called the buddy program where if you got a friend to work and they sell a vacuum you get a bonus.
She also said to come dressed professionally which of course I did with out issue but half the room at orientation was in jeans and flip-flops ,she even went out of her way to congratulate everyone on dressing professional. She was demonstrating what the vacuum could do detaching and reattaching pieces awkwardly and there were two girls in the back that were extremely disruptive and loud through orientation, it felt like high school all over again.
When I went home I did some research and found out that everything about it sucked, they screw over their employees and the customers and do shady things like buy the vacuums for 800 bucks then sell them for exactly 2,399 with financing options. There was complaints from employees going months with out pay and complaints from consumers being tricked into buying an expensive vacuum with a loan.
My heart sunk and I was literally in tears by the end of the day and never gave her a call back between 8:30-9:30pm as instructed to "catch up" to see if I got any vacuum showings set up for the weekend. I knew all of this was too good to be true, they constantly promised 1,800 a month and vacations and prizes but it was all a lie and I wasted so much of my time and energy on this "job".
