My husband and I found this job on CL back in September 2011. We didn't know it was Kirby. They never said anything about it being a Kirby branch. All they told us is that was would be involved in "Sales" and that we would get $500.00 a week plus whatever we made in Sales.
We moved from several states away. And they kept telling us that everything will be okay. It wasn't. It was awful.
We asked them repeatedly if this was STEADY. They said "Yes yes, you can make the move, no worries". That was B.S.
Later we found out that you are only guaranteed $500 avg if you are able to do 15 appointments per week. Each appointment will take you 3-6hrs and you are given 3 appointments per day. So 3 appointments x 5 days = 15 appointments. ITS IMPOSSIBLE! They even told us it's impossible to get all 15 appointments in one week. And they told this to us after we had already moved.
They also kept over emphasizing free trips, bonuses, a trip to the Bahamas if you make 15 sales or 60 appointments in a month. That should have been a red flag for us but I guess we didn't think it would be a scam since they knew we were moving in from out of State. I mean who would do that to someone travling 100s of miles? Hearless people!
If they would have just told us "Look, you are making a big move. This would most likely be better for local people and very risky for someone coming in out of State". I would have had much more respect for them. But they didn't do that. I don't know how they sleep at night knowing what they did to my husband and I.
Of course this was a while ago for me but I just wanted to share my story.
