Hiring Manager (Former Employee) – Orland Park, IL – October 31, 2017
This is a great company to work for. I've learned so much from this company and I also have been promoted. As long as you are willing to work hard you will for sure benefit and be promoted based off of your work and accomplishments.
Hostess (Current Employee) – Loveland, OH – October 29, 2017
I loved a lot of the people who worked there and they made that part of the job fun. But, sometimes it would get really stressful because there would be so many people during the rush hours and the restaurant is very small, so it made it hard to find places for people to sit at times.
Independent Salesmen (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – October 26, 2017
Extreme hours, the ads lied about the payment structure, and there are multiple aspects deciding whether you get paid or not, you can work your butt off and sell 5 decent dollar vaccums and get paid 150 dollars
Door to door sales (Former Employee) – Layton, UT – September 23, 2017
Office had a fun and positive environment. Management promoted positve characteristics. Absolutely no to little compensation to any employees besides management. We're very helpful during door to door sales. Worked long hours.

Dealer, team leader (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – September 9, 2017
Kirby is a competitive work place everyone wants to be the best and sale the most after all whoever sales the most makes the most but we all are good friends even salesmen from other offices and we'll even share all of our tricks that we use but month in and month out we work very hard and long hours going door to door trying to be #1 4 times a year you have a chance to win a free vacation and more prizes every month over all this is a great opportunity and a great company the only thing you have to watch out for is a bad factory distributor because he will keep your commission

Product Distributor/Sales manager (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – August 21, 2017
I work pretty much every state west of the Mississippi. I typically have 3 appointments a day showcasing my equipment and cleaning one room of my clients home. This is a buy today business so communicating well with others is very important. Overcoming objections and closing a sale is the hardest part of the day (or not overcoming objections and closing a sale).
Canvasser (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – August 10, 2017
I loved working at kirby though it was a years ago the people you see usually become regulars where you'll gave good conversation with some. Fast paced sometimes. Sometimes you may get left in the house with a creep and it may be your first day out of training.

Kirby Salesman (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – July 25, 2017
My time with this company was short lived. I was paid compensation which is fine when im selling thousands of dollars a week. But when im getting shorted on my checks when i put 12 hours a day in walking around im not going to be happy so needless to say i left
Great place to work, if you're willing to put in the work.
Team leader, Canvasser, Salesman (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – July 19, 2017
Kirby was an awesome place to get my foot into the sales world. I was looking for some hard work that would pay off in the end. The management wasn't very bad but it wasn't good in terms of building their workers, if you are a determined, hard worker, then this is the job for you.
