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

Pros

The product is actually really great

Cons

They lie to you, get you to lie to your friends and family, then get you to lie to their friends and family. They put up a front as Vector Marketing, sounds like a professional place to work, lure you in then tell you that you are selling Cutco knives. They train you, then send home to start "marketing" which is really just playing on the sympathies of your peers telling them that its just practice sales until you get the hang of it.(lies) they make you collect numbers of friends and family then hand them in so they can badger them about buying these rediculously over priced cutlery sets.They eat up college kids and people just looking for an honest job and spit them out like they meant nothing, because you dont mean anything to them. In the end you feel swindled out of your time you could have used getting a real job.

Advice to Management

Stop taking advantage of people, stop lying, and stop wasting precious time.

    Pros

    You get to work as much as you want. You can schedule it around your time. The weekly meetings really help you learn how to better your approach. Teaches you to interact in many different ways with customers

    Cons

    cost to get to the customers are is difficult especially in a spread out city

    Advice to Management

    They are open for questions about anything since they have experienced everything we as a sales representative have gone through.

    I worked at Vector Marketing as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working at Vector provides a lot of opportunity for personal growth. You get to meet many people in a short amount of time, and the harder you work, the more money and benefits you earn. The staff was extremely encouraging and friendly, and I enjoyed spending time with them. Everyone there believes in the product they are selling and encourages positive thinking. You make your own schedule, and can basically work as much or as little as you want. It does a good job of maintaining both a relaxed, yet competitive atmosphere -- overall, a great opportunity for those looking for a first job or a way to get their foot in the door.

    Cons

    You need a combination of hard work and a bit of luck if you want to earn the big bucks. You also need to be prepared to make a lot of phone calls to potential strangers, and need to be prepared for rejection -- you will get hung up on at least once while doing this job. If you don't like selling products to people on your own, then this job isn't for you. Only do it if you like sales, otherwise you're gonna be miserable.
