SCAM... you make the call. Young girls canvasing the neighborhood telling residents of Rancho Cucamonga and Ontario that they are a "New carpet cleaning business" offering a free carpet cleaning of one room to help spread the news of the new business. A little later a van pulls up and out pops a man with two huge boxes labeled. KIRBY. TWO HOURS later there is a tiny portion of carpet cleaned and a high pressure sales pitch that involves a sap story about this young guy that only needs a few more sales to get his bonus trip to a tropical destination. Sure the Kirby is a good vacuum but besides the fact that it is WAY over priced, the point is...IT'S NOT THE TRUTH! When someone says they are a new "carpet cleaning" business offering a free room of carpet cleaning and they come in to sell you a Kirby and don't clean the room. So SCAM??? You tell me. Oh yeah I forgot to meantion. They even left a flyer.... "FREE CARPET SHAMPOO TODAY ONLY"...Distributor Warehouse Inc. 9785 Crescent Center Dr.#302 Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91730.
Very deceptive

i used to work for them
they had me stay in a house for 3 hours trying to sell one of those vacuums since i didn't want to lose my job i had to force myself to stay in that house until i met the lady's daughter who had cerebral palsy and just had surgery in her throat...i gave up and packed my stuff even though i almost got myself in trouble. so i just made an excuse and got away with it

This company is always hiring customer service reps,appointment setters and carpet cleaners. but actually, the customer service will be the carpet cleaner coz that's their way of making the customers buy the kirby vacuum cleaner,,through carpet cleaning,,and 300 a week?? they will pay u that if you made 15 presentations and sold 1 kirby in a week. they hired me before and i attended the first day of training since i did not have any idea of what my job will be.but i did not go back the next day..stop cheating!!!! people apply for jobs because they want to earn money to support their families.have pity on those who are looking for jobs seriously!!!!

too bad none of you understand the sales business... Kirby had been operating legitimately this way for 95 years, and it's the best system in the world... this is a fact, feel free to do your research... the people who buy kirbys do so because they want them, then people get what's called buyers remorse and try to come up with interesting ways to get out of having to pay for it. How can it be a scam when the CUSTOMER signs paperwork and talks to the finance company themselves? they feel bad about spending money and come up with scams of their own to get out of the committment. As for working for them? they guarantee a certain amount if you do everything you're supposed to... if you do 15 demos in a week, you get the guarantee, but if you breeze through and don't do the demo properly, you're not playing the numbers properly and you won't get the sale. so if you work for a week and don't get paid, it's no one's fault but your own...

ya they came to my house and i said i'll take the free cleaning..
so they cleaned my 1room they guy was way cool and did an awesome job. but what i later found out was he didn't no i had told the girl i wasn't interested and wasn't going to buy anything but i would take the "free cleaning" if the offer was still good.. so she jumped on the fone and minutes later he arrived. i told the guy and his boss what was agreed, after 5min with the boss they left and my 1room was clean again.

They posted an ad in Orange County claiming they were looking for "Customer Service" people. When I found out that this was a Sales position, I got really pissed off, "thanked" them for wasting my time and stormed out.

Problem is, they're not the only employers pulling this kind of crap. I went to an "interview" in Santa Fe Springs for a "Customer Service" position, which would involve enrolling union members for insurance packages. The "interview" was actually a group presentation(which I usually avoid...that right there is a good indication that the employer is not on the up & up, the "Customer Service" involved visiting people at home and sigining them up for the insurance. It's basically the AmWay method....they provide the leads from lists provided to them by labor unions, the get 10 additional leads from the union memeber, etc. You're an independent contractor, and you start out by paying $500 for a License to sell insurance (not a realistic expectation in the economy)!!!
They're still at it!! Now they're advertising for "Union Representatives"!!!

Bottom line, the state needs to enact laws regarding job postings by employers. This has been needed for several years and is most definitely needed NOW!!!

I like the language a non paid sales person uses when doing sales. Everyone is a sales person some get paid and some do not. If you do not want to sell then why would you think a company would want you as a representative. Or CUSTOMER SERVICE
Bonehead.
I am proud of being a sales person over 25 years and having great clients. do you think sales people want to work with morons?
I have been in the top 1% top sales person in the country and have learned many thing one if the dog wants to bite you so does the owner leave.

If they offer a free cleaning, take it. if u don't want to buy anything, just don't buy anything.
A bussiness only pays u if u win profit for the bussiness.
Don't waste ur time if u work for Kirby, the numerous hours and pay will always equal minimum wage.
