Kirby is doing door to door demonstrations/sales of their hi-tech vacuumes here in Portland. In the house where I'm living we have hard wood floors, so the person who knocked on our door was easily deflected. But the person managed to recruit me for a job interview with Kirby at their office on Sandy St. The interview seemed somehow too easy despite obviously contrived normal procedures (interview, application, waiting period, call back, job offer). So I googled "kirby scam" and found many personal accounts of Kirby scams across the country.
Kirby recruits employees to demonstrate and sell overpriced vacuum cleaners at people's homes in many cities. Employees never actually gain legal employment with the company and are often not paid for weeks of hard work. Employees demonstrating the vacuum inside people homes are forced to use many disrespectful sales tactics and ultimately take up hours of people's time while they push their 2,000 dollar vacuum sales pitch. Employees work very hard only to not get any pay. This can be devestating to a hard working person with a family.
Warn your friends not to work for Kirby. It's a scam.
