Don't have time to explain it right now. I got shhhhwasted lastnight and couldn't get around to it, and right now (7 AM), I gotta head out in a few minutes.
Basically, I don't even sell the vaccuum. All I do is customer service. People call the office and ask for appointments for a demonstration/show and we come out with a sales manager for the first month or 2. Then we can go by ourselves when they know we know what we are doing and then just call them. We dont' talk money AT ALL. No matter what. Thats not our department because we aren't supposed to be interested in money. We basically come to your house, and show you everything it does (which is alot O_O) [finishes decks in 10 minutes, spraypaints, leafblower, duster for screens and stuff, cleans mattresses and any surface down to 14 inches because of the vibrating pulses. It also changes lightbulbs, cleans the ticks off your animals. It will inflate ANYTHING. Pool rafts, balloons, bike tires, and yes... REAL tires. We went outside and checked eachother's air pressure and filled up this one kid's F-150.
Sorry guys, its not BS
I hapenned to have lucked out with an amazing job.
I have 15 pre-arranged setup appointments a week. Thats 15 possible sales a week. Its damn near impossible, but if you hit a sale for every appointment you have in a month, the owner (not of kirby, of our division) will buy you a gold ROLEX watch. And thats NOT BS, there was a guy working office today durring training that came in and showed us his.
Most people get about 2-3 sales a week.
And no, the ps3's and stuff aren't for free. You have to be in the top of the new recruitment class for the first month and you get the prize. Also, we have a demo sheet where the customers rate us and how helpful we were, and theres something about that and how much/good it is, etc.
Oh yeah, and the reason the Kirby company is allowed to treat their employees so generously is because they have NO overhead. You will NEVER see any Kirby commercials on tv, the radio, billboards, etc. This means there are no advertisers to pay with the profit BEFORE they pay their employees. Straight profit directly to employees. $$$$$$
Anyways, thats about all I have time for to explain right now.
Oh, and most of the people there (about 16 or 20) are mostly 23-27, and a few had families and kids, and 3 were like... 45 or 46 and in the millitary services for 20 years. One was an immigration officer. Which I found funny because he looked cuban
I don't even officially start untill next weekend, and today, I am already making 80$ cash in hand for setting up 8 appointments myself with friends or family for when I get to take it home Monday and Tuesday for "practice demonstrating". I am picking up another sheet and getting another 8 after work so I can get another 80$ tomorrow
Everyone is so nice, especially the owner. Very rich guy (while telling jokes, he used his own 3 inch thick stack of 100's as a prop) and had an excellent suit. He even popped in every now and then and told these hilariously funny jokes. He reminded me of Robin Williams. He even looks like it
He even cooked us all hotdogs and got us a cooler of sodas and stuff.
Yeah... this job rules =]
Have a good day guys! =]
edit: LMAO! So much for not explaining it RIGHT NOW... now I definitely g2g!
Lol@ On my way home from work yesterday, I was so thrilled it wasn't a scam, I was doing 135 on the expressway. Don't worry, I was doing it safely if that makes sense. Hahahahaha!
