    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vector Marketing.

    Interview

    Students, beware this one. They were offering me $15/hr base payment despite the fact that I had no experience. I applied via WayUp and then they sent me an e-mail stating that they had called me when they had not. They finally called me and screened me over the phone. After that, I was immediately scheduled for an interview that next day, being told that the manager was very busy and they were hiring fast. However, something didn't feel right. It sounded too good to be true. I did research online and found that my suspicions were confirmed. I read that this company is a division of Cutco Knives and you're selling knives door to door (despite the ad telling me this was not the case). I wound up not going to the face-to-face presentation for personal reasons anyways (they tell you it's an interview but I learned that it's actually a presentation with 4 other people). These are just my thoughts on the phone interview process but please do a lot of research before going.

    Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vector Marketing (Fayetteville, AR) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and they emailed me saying they want to interview me for a marketing position. This was before I learned that entry level marketing really means door to door sales person. I did some research and the first thing that popped up on the search engine was vector marketing scam. The called me later and wanted to set up an interview. I asked what exactly the position was and the clerk said "marketing, and some sales." I asked what kind, what do you sell there? She said, "I can't say, you just have to be here for the interview." I tried to get more info but she said, "I'm really not supposed to say what we sell, you will find out in the group interview with the rest." She sounded scared! I told her wanted to cancel my interview and she said she understood. So weird and sketchy! There are videos of some people who did like the door to door knife selling but some said you have to pay to start. Like Premier Designs where you buy the jewelry then sell it for profit. *cough* Pyramid.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Broomall, PA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vector Marketing (Broomall, PA).

    Interview

    I got a solicitation in the mail saying that they were hiring college students for break and paid $15/h for marketing positions. I called to inquire about the position and was immediately scheduled an appointment for later that evening. I Had a preliminary interview about my strengths and education in marketing and communications, where I was then informed that they were interested in me to have the second half of the interview. At this point I was under the impression that this was a customer service/marketing position, but when I had the 2nd part of the interview, which really was just a lecture on the company, I was told about an hour and a half way through that this was door to door sales. Who still buys products like that these days? I was thrown off that this job was titled "customer service and marketing", and not "door-to-door sales". This was a scam and waste of time. They should have been upfront about what they did, rather than make me sit through a 2 hour interview process to find this out. You are paid solely off of your sales, and the customers had to be found by you on your own time. You have to use your own gas and car to get anywhere also. Whoever calls this marketing needs to go take a marketing class.

    Reasons for Declining

    Not interested in door-to-door sales, and the whole interview process and all of the shadiness around the actual job were a red flag.
