    I worked at Kirby Corporation as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Freedom to make your own hours.

    Cons

    Help wanted ad described job as a warehouse job.
    Pay based solely on sales of sweepers.
    Only way you received pay is if they could get credit for sales, otherwise you were in the repossession business.
    Not paid for gas to repossess or for sales that failed or for sales they didn't get credit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a better credit company to work with you.

    I have been working at Kirby Corporation

    Pros

    The pay is nice and the job is very secure. The people are easy to get along with and the work environment is very relaxed. Most of the time you can get away with 40 hour work weeks with little to think about on the weekend, if that's your thing.

    Cons

    Senior management (most of whom are not local to Rocky Mount) are not very familiar with our division of the company, and thus do not provide the resources necessary for us to do our jobs. They constantly ignore requests made by the managers in NC and are only driven by money. They have shown very little interest in how to improve the quality of life for the employees (i.e. bonuses, vacation time, better health plans, etc), and appear to have an overall disdain for the workforce in Rocky Mount. Additionally, they are not very well informed on the business structure and how we operate, and thus are further unable to meet the needs/demands of our growing business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some interest in your employees! They are not happy at all with the lack of respect they receive and will not continue to do a good job for you. They are quite dissatisfied with the way the business is run as a whole.
