Please beware of QRP Distributors. They are a distributor for the reputable Kirby company, with less than reputable business practices. First they are quick to schedule and interview with you. They may lie and tell you that there are several positions open...there is only one: Demo Rep. As a demo rep, you are an independent contractor, so you are not paid for the extensive training sessions and morning meetings you are REQUIRED to attend. The "lead department" is a scam. They give you a few leads they had before, but ultimately, it is up to you to find leads for yourself, which they often give away to other reps if you turn in to then.
You will only be paid if you (a)make sales at prices that allow commission OR (b) do a minimum of 15 demonstrations in a week.

Here is the issue with option a: if you do make a sale, a manager closes and processes it and so, automatically gets a portion of your commission. Sometimes customers cannot afford $2500 for the Kirby, and the manager does whatever they have to in order to make that sale. Eg: lowering the price to $1500. In this event your commission is now completely gone, but at least you did a demo to count towards your 15 for the week, right?
HARDLY
Your demos only count if a manager closes the demo by speaking with the customer at the end. However, they dont pick up the phone half the time. So, you may do 15, but they only answer the phone for 12. Therefore, you are considered to only have done twelve and so your "base pay" is $0.

QRP has many methods to carry out they're shady business and get free labor out of people without reimbursing for gas OR time. Please run!

Missliu u are very much wrong although u may not have gotten 15 demos at the end of the month your paychecks will add up to $2020 at least. and id hardly call the training "extensive" as u say because it is only two days that dont even take 5 hours. If u owned a business wouldnt u wanna make sure that ur employees know how to handle your propertty? And that u dont get paid is also false i made $100 over the weekend just for doing a demo with family members. In the business of qrp if u are a dedicated employee and work hard it is possible for u to own your own office within six months now how many jobs have u had where u became the general manager in half a year? U are a very sadly mistaken and mislead person
