    Pros

    Vector Marketing is great to learn marketing skills and how to manage a business as well as your personal well-being (at least that's what the manager I worked with emphasized developing). You meet a wide range of people and clients, have the potential for lots of advancement in the company, as well as the potential for travel opportunities depending on how well and dedicated you are. The schedule is extremely flexible, great for college students as well as people who are looking for a part-time job with full-time pay.

    Cons

    This job isn't for everyone. It takes a lot of mental strength to stick it through week after week. You won't always make a sale and may have a "dry spell," where you sell absolutely nothing, for numerous appointments that could last an entire week. Overall, I think it's worth it once you finally make a big sale.

    Advice to Management

    Positive environments, like the offices I've worked in, make a big difference and really encourage people to do better.

  2. Success will depend on your work ethic, but your experience could depend on the manager.

    Pros

    I loved working there because the job forced me to step out of my comfort zone. We had to reach out and speak to people and sell them on a product that they may be reluctant to purchase. An overall great experience as I developed people skills, confidence, and sales experience. Balancing work and life is was extraordinarily easy.

    Cons

    Not many cons, just the building was kind of far for me to drive to meetings. Even though the training was time consuming, it was manageable.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to management. They did a fantastic job hyping the employees and helping us break mental ceilings which may have very easily prevented up from reaching our goals.

    Pros

    The environment between employees is great! I've never worked in a place where all of my coworkers were so nice and encouraging.

    Cons

    There's no guarantee that you'll make a sale or even book and actually do enough demos to get an adequate paycheck. This is especially true if you're not good at selling!

    Advice to Management

    Sales isn't for everyone. Be honest with potential employees of what the job takes and not try to lure the unemployed with the promise of making $13 per hour!

    Pros

    - Possible to make lots of money if you work your butt off
    - Set your own schedule

    Cons

    - You have to start of by selling to family, friends, acquaintances and getting them to recommend you to their friends, family, acquaintances - it's sales through exploiting social bonds
    - The product is good but overpriced
    - They will advertise that it pays $15 an hour - what it actually pays is $15 per appointment if you don't make a sale, or commission if you do; the time you spend on everything else (calling to set up appointments, driving, team meetings, etc.) is unpaid
