The other night, I was at home with my kids and someone rang the doorbell. It was a rep from Kirby. They asked me if I had ever heard of it, and I said yes because my father used to have one. I was a little surprised because it was unexpected, but the girl assured me that I didn't have to buy one. I let her come in to show me. I knew if I got one while my husband was at work, he would probably kill me, but I was curious if it was like my dad's old clunker. Anyway, she brought her stuff in and her manager introduced himself, saying he wanted to make sure I knew what to expect from the demo. He excused himself and the girl got started. She knew a lot about the machine. She explained that she was fairly new and asked if she could use her notes. I think she was a little nervous, but I understood. She showed me a lot of neat stuff, but I knew, again, that my husband would think I was crazy. She was so nice about it, though when I told her that I couldn't make a decision without him. Lucky for her I guess, he came home right when she started vacuuming the carpet. He walked in and saw the dirt it picked up and he was blown away like I was. I vacuum twice a week and the samples she showed me were 1/2 inch thick coming out of my carpet! I pushed it and could not believe how easy it is now. My dad's was so heavy. When she showed us that the dirt was there because our dyson only had a small hole on the side, that was the clincher!!! My husband and I agreed that it was a no brainer. After we did the paperwork, she took just a few more minutes to make sure I was comfortable with the machine. I'm not gonna lie. It looked way harder than it was to operate. She let me fumble with it a few times, always staying patient. That is what made me feel good about it. I got a great cleaner and I helped her win her trip. When she was ready to go, her manager came back to introduce himself to my husband and thank us for helping her. I have had lots of people come to my door and try to sell me things, but this was different. They made sure to make me feel special. I hope to have my Kirby as long as my dad had his.
Shady things: I am a middle age respectful Christian family man. I actually own a Kirby, bought it in 2005. For a vacuum it works well but there are numerous down-sides. Its heavy as an elephant, the "extra" things it does are not practical nor easy as they make it appear in the demonstration. I am a very successful mechanical engineer and crane operator and I don't understand the dang thing. On another note, the "fortune 500" company that sells these is no different than Avon or Mary Kay and how many people really have luck with either of them? Also, they advertise as hiring "home maintenance" but in actuality it is a job selling bazaar, heavy, and hard to use vacuums. I found that out after taking a relative of mine to the job interview. They won't advertise Kirby on the building nor will they talk about it in the lobby and there are no signs or pictures of what they do. If they are SO good then why hide like that? I cannot and will not speak on the reputation of anyone who works there but I will say that if its a shady place then there will be shady people there and most likely you will get a shady paycheck. Use caution if you choose to proceed, its not my cup of tea.
Kirby – I wish I wouldn't have even wasted my time calling them for a job. I feel fortunate that I caught on in time to avoid wasting even more time going in for an interview. It is the same ad they put in ever paper and now on every job site. They changed the name of their company from Rainbow or whatever they used to be and in the ad it always says they are expanding. When I talked to the interview appointment setter/receptionist or whatever, yeah she was friendly and it would have been great if it was legitimate, because I enjoy working with good people but it is one of those too good to be true scenarios. The fact that they are always expanding and that they say they're selling small appliances instead of vaccums is just sneaky. They're always hiring because they can't keep employees. They should just be upfront and quit wasting people's time. I guess someone's mama forgot to teach them that honest is the best policy. Wish I could give negative stars :P
Lied – These people lied to me....I looked in the paper hoping that i would be able to find something so i could work and get my son things but that didnt happen...In training they said that i would be salary and comission and that didnt even happen i never got paid and as to come to find out this job is only based on commission not salary and commission...They should have told us this from the beggining that it was only going to be based on commission....Cause I needed that money for my son.....They lied to my face If they would have kept their word I would still be working there....But also to they had us going into stranger houses that we didnt even know put us in a position where something could happen while we are there alone....Then we had the people who said no we arent interested and the Dealer had to say well i get paid just to show you the Kirby pfft whatever you dont get paid for anything its just one big waste of time....I put all my effort into this and still nothing happened for me because again they said it was salary and commission not just commission.
ON A POSITIVE NOTE! – Well i was just browsing the internet and came across this city search for the company i work for. I am amazed at some of the stuff people say. I have been working at Yael for 7 months now and have not one complaint. I work every day and am very commited to the company. I have made more money working for Yael in 7 months than i made in a whole year at my last job. I have won 2 free vacations, one to Disney World and one to Lake Texoma. I am now in managment and on a plan to promote even higher. Call it a scam if you want to but i get paid every week and have developed skills i would have never learned if I had not been working here. Laurie the owner is one of the most giving and understanding bosses i have ever had. She bought me a brand new suit from mens wearhouse for my first trip i won. Kevin was my trainer and to this day he still helps me and teaches me new things and really cares about his people. So before yall start slandering good peoples name out there you might want to give a good opportunity a chance. Thats why yall have had 10 different min. wage jobs a year.
Love my KIRBY :-p – I had to take a minute to write a review about my incredible experience with this company. My husband and I were home last Wednesday night when we heard a knock at the door. I opened the door to an excited young lady who said she was offering a free gift to the home owner's in the area for taking at look at the Kirby presentation, she said it would take out the stains we had on our brand new carpet. We decided to take her up on it. We waited a couple of minutes and they came back to the door and the young lady explained that they work as a team, she is the appt setter and that the other young gentleman was the demonstration guy and the other young man was her on site manager. I must say they are were very attractive, well dressed and very professional. I had no idea that Kirby still went door to door. I must say the presentation was so incredible that the 2 hours it took, to show everything and remove ALL of my stains, flew by. My husband and I were amazed at how well the Kirby performed and pulled out a ton of dirt, grime and grit from our hard wood floors, upholestry and carpets. Needless to say, we made a decision to purchase this awesome machine. I was pleasantly surprised at how this company presented itself and the Kirby product. I am a attorney in the Greater Houston area, and must say that their customer service and follow through is amazng. A few days after i purchased the Kirby i received a "thank you" letter in the mail for the purchase with a hand written note from my salesperson, a perfect "extra" touch. I would recommend this product and this company to anyone i know and say that the workers they have are very well trained and represent the company well. It is nice to know that Yael Productions gives door to door a GREAT name.
Satisfied Custmer – Wow what a team of professionals. My husband and I revieced a demonstration from the wonderful people at Yael Productions Inc, the other night in the comfort of our home. Though some may feel the door to door approach is out dated and a bit forward; I feel that these are intelligent individuals who are very knowledgeable and passionate about a great product. While the Kirby Sentria is a wonderful product, it played a close 2nd to the professionalism and honesty, and integrity of this company. I have recommended Yael Productions to several of my friends for thier home maintenance system needs.
My husband and I would love to thank the wonderful folks at Yael Productions for giving us and informative, professional, and quality presentation. We have no regrets, we love our Kirby. We love Yael Productions and have nothing but positive things to say about our experience.
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You :o)
fake – they are liars and the guy that trains you is a nasty guy that talks dirty to the girls and hits on them then they try to get u to work there and dont get paid right they need to close that company or fiar that guy that trains you he just not right to be working there and hittin on girls i quit before i got into it i cant belive they call that a job liars
Yael Sucks! – This is a horrible company. They promise you one job then at the end of training everyone becomes salesman. They pack 30 people into vans and send you to unsuspecting customer houses to sell their overpriced vacuums. Although they promised checks of $500+ a week, they eventually tell you, you will get a check at the end of the month based on commision from selling these vacuums. Laurie Woods and her staff are liars. Most people quit before the end of training. Do not accept a job with these people
SCAM! – This company is an absolute scam, do not accept a job from them. I only took this job because they guaranteed I would not be a salesman and my salary would not be based on commission. They made all kinds of promises such as trips, cash incentives, and $2200 a month. Lori and her team of liars showed us copies of paychecks to prove that people get large checks. After the few days of training, which we were not paid for, they broke the news that we would be loaded into vans and taken to demonstrate the products. Theses people were offered a "free rug cleaning" and did not know we were really trying to sell them vacuums. Then they told us we would not be getting weekly paychecks, but rather a check at the end of the month based on the number of sales. I quit that day. Lori and all of her crew are scam artists.
