    Pros

    Ability to make 50% commission!? Where else can you find that? Sure it takes hard work, but that's insane!

    Cons

    Inconsistencies with schedules and management. Having to start out with people you know

    Advice to Management

    Make the schedules in stone so no one has to guess. Run it like a business

    Pros

    Freedom to run your business as you see fit. There is also a great deal of support from all over the nation. Travel is fantastic and so are the people.

    Cons

    At the rep level there really are none. At the Management level there are dealing with reps who choose not to put in their best effort and they can be difficult at times.

    Pros

    The best job a college student can get. Vector trains young people to be exceptional professionals. For a college student, the pay and hours are great.

    Cons

    The sales rep position is not set up as a career opportunity. Not a lot of support or structure for high level sales people.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in putting out high quality managers who retain great people.

    I have been working at Vector Marketing part-time

    Pros

    -Make your own hours as a sales rep -Good commission percentages -All the managers are friendly -You don't have to pay for the sample kit -If you need help you can always get it

    Cons

    The biggest thing that I've run into is I live in very small town with people who are always looking to save money. The people in our area live pay check to pay check and are not willing to drop $1500.00 on knives.

    Advice to Management

    I think that a lot of the managers could calm it down a bit. I am fully aware that its good to be energetic, but acting like you've slammed 15 energy drinks my not be the image you're looking for.

    I have been working at Vector Marketing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to take on any challenges you are interested in. Great people to work with and easy product to sell. Mangement training experience and leadership training is second to none.

    Cons

    How managers get paid can be very confusing unless you have a Masters in Accounting and know how to handle and understand money. Lots of hard work but 90% of the time it's worth it.

    I worked at Vector Marketing part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent working environment. I gained business and communication skills that I couldn't learn in engineering school. I even learned about retirement planning and investing from my manager.

    Cons

    If you want to be successful you have to work hard and be able to handle the heat of a sales environment. This was great about the job but I think it's difficult for young people to deal with in comparison to their other possible opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being role models for the people working for you. Little things can go a long way. Teach people under you not only sales skills but general life skills. Itll make them more excited to work
