after working for these con men for a week i've come to realise the whole kirby presentation is a crok of ****!!
they offer the machine for 2495, then 1495, then 1295.
however ive seen said machines on the internet on ebay for 699!! they treied to tell me there was no cold calling involved and that they sorted all the customers for the demonstrations. this again is is a crok of ****! they have you knocking on peoples doors trying to give raffle tickets out (wether or not there is a prize i could not assertain) to get peoples names addresses and numbers.
so beware if you see an engineers job with a salery of 18000 + bonus dont be conned like i was!!!!!!

I got suckered into the same mate but with a branch in bromborough. They wanted it sold for 2.495 and we had to make phone calls as if were doing them a special deal etc. Absolute jokers they are.

Indeed... The more you sell it to them or the more commission u get . They try con you by saying they give you free holidays and prizes if you meet your targets. Complete con.

i applied to fazakerley kirby centre, probably a year ago. Got interview, but it seemed like a pushy sales job. i wasnt interested in that! Lucky escape eh!? Maybe someone should contact watchdog or get someone to investigate them!

I worked for these guys in Morton about 15 years ago so it's not a new fenomenon. The sing song start to the morning is the first sign that all is not as it should be. Boody good vacume cleaners though. ( you got shouted at if you called them hoovers and woe betide anyone sitting with their arms crossed during the learning phase)

I applied too a while ago, made it quite clear that I wouldn't do hard-sell, they insisted it was no-brainer soft selling to get current customers to upgrade for a lot of discount. I asked them for figures which probably put the nail in the coffin for me.
