My brother worked for them for about 2months, you pay a weekly fee to use there vans and you are required to meet a sales quota.

Edit: you don't get paid while training.

They employ you as an engineer then give you a sales quota, selling machines at 2300 each, don't go near them !

They have a Wirral branch which were operating in Moreton last week. My daughter had invited them in-fatal! A young girl apparently on her second demo was about two hours in the house. Her boss arrives to see how she was getting on and then fifteen minutes later a large van with two young men also arrive apparently to help the girl pack everything up.She said she had to do fifteen demos as her quota and they all said they were working twelve hours a day every day of the week. It seemed like slave labour to me and was over legal working hours?
If you bought a cleaner that day it went down to 1295 approx and you were then part of the Kirby family.Wow, let's rush out and buy one.

The van lads dressed very smartly in dark trousers,leather shoes, black ties and shirts, were like the heavy mob. What pressure with all those people in your home if you were on your own. The cleaner itself was heavy but I believe quite good but who has time to use all the gadgets. It took four of them over ten minutes to pack it up back in box.

They were all very polite and I felt so sorry for them working so hard.My advice avoid this job like the plague.
