    I have been working at Kirby Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Kirby Co is ONLY in Cleveland, OH and Andrews, Tx. Any other locations are NOT truly the Kirby Co, but independent distrubutors. The corporate office & factory (in Cleve) has excellent culture, employees are like family. Personal and professional development is encouraged. Coworkers and supervisors, as well as other depaetments havr all been very kind, professional, and great to work with. High quality product manufactured in USA.

    Cons

    Pay is a bit low. Some systems could be updated. Being confused with individual distributors -especially that have had contracts ended for not complying with Kirby policies- is very frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Join the 21st century in technology. Keep treating your workers well.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Shelton, CT
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    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
