    Pros

    Work your own schedule requires self motivation enjoyable co-workers getting real experience in sale everyone loves the product

    Cons

    having to drive to appointments setting up your own appointments having to make calls which is not too bad considering its a job

    Advice to Management

    You should talk to Cutco about putting the micro double d edge on a longer blade like the slicer since it is the sharpest edge.

    Pros

    They teach you skills for life. They give you a hand signed letter of recommendation from the CEO of a quarter billion dollar national marketing firm.

    Cons

    Every job is challenging. Suck it up and just do it. I have no cons about this job and neither should anyone else.

    Advice to Management

    Every manager should take a sales class before they jump into management or at least understand SPIN selling and Features, advantages, and benefits.

    Pros

    You can make your own schedule. Very flexible and enjoyable work. Lots of telephone and appointment setting. Sales presentation and closing the sale are very important.

    Cons

    Commission based pay. Occasional rude customers

    Pros

    Great resume experience, awesome pay (if you do things right), you are your own boss, great work environment.

    Cons

    There honestly weren't a lot of downsides for me. The harder part comes if you work as a receptionist because if you only meet the standard, then they will let you go.

    Advice to Management

    My only piece of advice would be to give the receptionists a little more recognition that they deserve.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule around school, awesome coworkers and leaders, great resume experience. Working with Vector I have been able to pay for my pilots license, college classes, and my own car. I've become a more professional version of myself, learned how to speak publicly, and manage my time.

    Cons

    No cons. If you're looking for a Mickey Mouse job (flipping burgers) then don't apply. What you put into this job is what you get out of it!

    Pros

    Amazing personal growth opportunity Great income opportunity Amazing atmosphere Amazing people to work with As far as student life goes there is no other place that will offer the same experience, money, or fun.

    Cons

    Very self-motivated. If you are looking for a regular 9-5 job this isn't for you, but if you are the kind of person who really wants to learn to master their field and build the habits for their future than I would recommend giving it a shot.

    Pros

    When I first walked into the training meeting I was very nervous but everyone was very kind to me and if I didn't understand something they would explain it kindly. The Cutco products are amazing! And so are the people! Its a wonderful job. I may just be starting out but it is still really great!

    Cons

    The only downside is probably having to bother friends and family for costumers, because often times they don't really seem interested.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I can give is to not tell those starting out that they will have a good chance of selling. Its often that they won't. However giving them a positive attitude is good!
