    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!!

    I worked at Vector Marketing full-time (more than an year)

    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.

    Pros

    The best opportunities to advance yourself through stepping out of your comfort zone in sales and working with clients provides an invaluable reward if you really put the effort into it. Not to mention you will succeed financially.

    Cons

    It certainly takes a lot of time and persistence to become acquainted with the program at first. Sales is not promising when you begin, and you only progress

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really like how your model is run. the training is great, but some of the efforts should be less sneaky, per se.

    I worked at Vector Marketing as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good first time Job. You will learn a lot about presentation and maintaining a schedule. If you have that "spark" to being a salesman and you run with it, you might be quite successful. Would recommend to outgoing personalities with large social networks to draw calls from. You do get to choose your own work hours.

    Cons

    Unfortunately not everyone has that "spark". The company has that "if you believe it you can do anything!" attitude. Which is a great motivational speech. But what they don't tell you is that the vast majority of sales reps barely make any money at all. I worked very hard, came into work every day, collected client lists, made phone calls, even got to promoted to ke staff, but I would have made more money at McDonalds.You also have to purchase your own equipment and pay for your own gas to drive for appointments. Would not recommend to shy individuals.

    Pros

    Training in sales is always helpful in both career and personal life

    Cons

    Cold calling and finding all of your own customers along with making percentages of whoever you get hired shows this to be your basic pyramid scheme.
