    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pasadena, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a day - interviewed at Vector Marketing in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    They started sending me letters a few months before I graduated high school. The letters were in invitation to come interview. When I couldn't find another job, I decided to give them a try. My interview was just me and one guy who was only a few years older than me, he was a college student. My interview was really easy, they really wanted to hire me so I think the interview was just to make sure I was a normal person. I'm from a well off area and they sent letters to kids graduating from my high school with me because they wanted us to sell to the wealthy people that live in our town.

    Interview Questions
    • Do you have transportation? Are you interested in sales? That's pretty much all they asked me.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation, you get paid per sales appointment unless you make a sale, then you are paid by commission only. You make more by commission than by appointment.

    Very easy interview. They are a recruiting business, so the more employees the better. Most people call it a scam, but that is only because they were not successful.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process for this company is quite simple, due to the fact that this job is solely based off of your sales skills they do not require much experience. The majority of the interview questions are related to customer service and sales experience. You get to know that day whether or not they would like you to work for them.

    Entry Level Sales Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Vector Marketing in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    When I went into the interview, it was basically a real life infomercial. The head of that specific branch explained to use how the knifes were used as if we were his audience rather than potential employees. We were told to take notes. During this interactive sales pitch, we were then informed that, if hired, we were expected to do the same thing for various clients -that we had to find ourselves-. In the end, he called each person in the room one by one to have a one-on-one interview.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were difficult in particular but at the end of the interview we all had to take a test. It was so unexpected that we had to take a comprehension test based on the 21/2 hour long infomercial presentation. Personally it seemed demeaning.   Answer Question

    Customer Service/Sales Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Vector Marketing in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was called for an interview for this company, only to discover that it was for Cutco Cutlery. The ad stated that leads would be provided and that there was no door-to-door or cold calling.

    The interviewer, whose name I cannot recall now, was rather rude and looked upon me with condescension the entire interview. I was asked how long I had lived in the area, if I have a lot of friends and family, and if I had any social networking accounts. When I told him that I do have a lot of friends and family, but I do not get to see them often or that they are in other states, he told me that the job was not for me. When I asked why, he informed me that all of their business was gained by word of mouth (which is not what the ad stated), and that if I did not have enough friends and family that I could sell the products to, that I was unhireable. I was also informed that there is no training pay.

    To me, this sounds like a bad way to run a business. No one wants to bother their friends and family with over priced products. I am glad I did not get the position, honestly. I just thought that others who are looking at a position with Vector Marketing should know what the company is about, as it does not state in any ad that you will be selling Cutco Cutlery.
