Kirby - CALLING ALL ENERGETIC LOUD MUSIC LOVERS!!!

Post by eastauck » Sun Feb 15, 2009 11:07 am

Not only do kirby distributors take advantage of the consumer, they take advantage of young, guilible employees. Their way of recruiting is misleading the recruit that it is not a doot to door sales position. They will tell you that all prospects have been noticed before hand. These are all lies. They make the job seem like its the best thing since slice bread. I admit you can make a lot in the Kirby business but the hours you sacrifice for your distributor isn't worth it

Kirby can take advantage of old people, and the low income families

Many, many years ago, I had a Kirby rep do a demonstration in my home.
He was enthusiastic to the point of being disturbing. I recall that after vacuuming
and shampooing the carpet, he actually pulled off all the bedclothes and
vacuumed the mattress of the bed, to demonstrate what collected there.

I remember being impressed with the performance of the machine, but less
so with the Kirby rep. He was a bit like the energiser bunny on steroids.

When he grabbed a handful of the shampoo foam and stuffed it in his mouth
to prove how non-toxic it was compared to other cleaners, I threw him
out. There were bubbles coming out of his mouth as he packed up his gear.
It still makes me smile. ;-)
Idealism increases in direct proportion to your distance from the problem.

He would hardly need to lay people off, they would have long since given up in disgust!!

When I started listing MLM schemes, there were always at least 30 or 40 'job' listings from various Kirby off-shoots (many from Ihaiha the advertiser above). generally offering $2,600 p/m or $650 p/w, usually hiding behind hotmail or gmail addresses. Generally they all wanted between 20 and 30 people to start immediately. Because they technically offer a salary, they could not be classed as MLM and were considered legitimate jobs. Later, some of the advertisers started inserting 'subject to company conditions' alongside their salary claims.
Entry level - $650 p/w to start based on company programme with great weekly bonuses and luxury overseas travel!
I feel that Kirby is every bit as insidious as the multi-level marketing exploitation merchants. It must be soul-destroying to sincerely try to sell for them; their adverts promise so much and obviously deliver so little to their employees.
