Lots of freedom.
Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHOctober 26, 2015
Selling Kirby vacuums door to door is a life style, not a job. The average Kirby sales person lasts 6 months. I sold them for 8 years.
Pros
Independant contractor.

Average weekly hours, 70.

Old school mentality
Consultant (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKApril 20, 2015
This company was in Houston and I was at OK. The client was old school and was not engaged with the implementation of Oracle. Tough client.

Kirby Corporation
Insurance Coordinator/Administrative (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 23, 2013
Tends to be long term employees on the job that do not like new people joining the group. Not very much training, more of a fly by the seat of your pants, or sink or swim attitude.

The overall compensation and benefits as well as job security are in place, but there is no room for personal issues to surface.

Management is made up of professionals who are very bright, but not very accessable.
