    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kirby Company (Shelton, CT) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The HR guy thinks he is worth millions and almost talks like you owe him something. It's a 1099 door to door sales job so make sure you have money before starting a position without a gauraneed check every week. The boss said he has millions in the bank and is one of the richest in CT

    Sales Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kirby Company (Oshkosh, WI) in January 2017.

    Interview

    It was one of the shortest interviews I've ever had. They will hire anyone I believe. I noticed when I was employed that nobody lasted and they are desperate for solid workers. That's probably why anyone can get hired.

    Interview

    A lot of hype about the pay. I personally understand the risks involved with getting into a sales job like this, but the interviewer did not make it clear to anyone that there ARE risks involved. He just hyped the pay and howuch money they will make, but it isn't that easy. It was very laid back and the interviewer was not very professional. Foul language was used and he used these exact words "I don't care if you do black tar heroin and smoke meth, just dont bring it to work"

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no negation. It was pretty quick

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kirby Company.

    Interview

    Very short and didn't explain too much in detail. Only that we'd get paid a certain amount every two weeks. Wasn't told at that time that it's salary and there are no health benefits. I need something more promising.

    Customer Service Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wilmington, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kirby Company (Wilmington, MA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I was called for the interview this morning because my resume was found on a job search site. I scheduled the interview for the afternoon, then called this evening for the job offer. Overall experience was a positive however, I remain leery as the process was seemed too quick and the interviewer did not really answer my questions. I asked if I would be going to people's houses and the gentleman only responded with, "If you do have to travel, you will be using company vehicles and you wont have to pay for gas."

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, WA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Kirby Company (Vancouver, WA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I showed up to a empty commercial space and was interviewed very casually. My interviewer was evasive about several of my questions. I asked if training was paid. He said I would be compensated. That wasn't very truthful. I got the distinct feeling that the whole thing was a sham and left. I suggest staying away from any authorized distributors. I think that the other things you read online about how these distributors cheat you may very well be accurate. Beware.

    Reasons for Declining

    I believe that there is little truth in the profitability of this position to the average person. If you are absolutely excellent with sales you may be happy. Just maybe.
