    I have been working at Vector Marketing part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    flexible scheduling
    looks good on resume (i've been asked to call people because i had working for vector in my resume)
    potential to earn good amount of money when still in school
    ability to move up in the company
    ability to help others become successful

    Cons

    the training was a little long (3 half days)
    you have to call in and check out with management almost daily
    have to stay motivated if bad day
    have to go out of comfort zone if you're shy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    i worked at jacksonville office which is one of the best ones. It seems that some people have really bad experiences with their "bosses" (the managers since you're technically an independent contractor) but I believe those are with smaller offices. always treat your group with respect. My manager Patrick is great!

    I have been working at Vector Marketing

    Pros

    -Amazing Money, Made a few thousand dollars over the summer barely working, only a few hours a week.
    -Flexible schedule
    -Freedom! You can decide what you want to do
    -Feels like real world because you are rewarded based upon results

    Cons

    -Feels seedy sometimes, have to call people (the are understanding atleast)
    -Managers can use some sneaky pressure tactics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to stop using some of the more cheesy/fake arguments. The smarter (and often times richer kids) will see right through it and be reluctant to remain there .

    Pros

    It teaches you how to be an entrepreneur and business owner, the money is good and the managers are very friendly and helpful. It's kind of like a training program that you could turn into a career or use as a springboard to whatever career you want to get into.

    Cons

    You do have to make phone calls so if you're allergic to work it's not a good fit

    Pros

    Phenomenal business training, sets you up for goal setting, professional presentation, and business acumen

    Cons

    Need to manage your schedule, it's not set hours where you report to work, so it's not for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with the positive motivation and people development you- it has really served me well!!

    Pros

    Lot's of money. Lot's of free time. Great incentives. Strong teams. Hard earned. I think overall Vector is a solid company with a very good work-life balance. It is what you make it.....It's mostly incentive pay, so if sales isn't your thing I wouldn't recommend it.

    Cons

    Cheap marketing tactics. Phone time. Basically The negatives of any sales job. I hate calling people and persuading them to get something they don't want. With that being said, it's not cold calling, it's based off of referrals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the motivation.
