    I worked at Liggett Vector Brands full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People, most customers are great, company car, pay is decent and weekends off.

    Cons

    Direction of company is shaky. More layoffs to come? Lets sell cheap cigarettes, get aggressive and quit putting your tail between your legs. We probably wasted too much money making a crappy ECIG now we have to pinch pennies.

    I worked at Liggett Vector Brands full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work independently for most of the time.

    Cons

    Just a dead-end job. The driving required is absurd, some days I would put in 3-4 hundred miles. Your job consisted of replacing old cigarette signs with new cigarette signs. The brand they sell is so low grade that it's like pulling teeth to get merchants just to try the tobacco. Worked in Southern New England so I too had the pleasure (not) of working with the crusty old man, what a horrible boss!

    Advice to Management

    I'm long gone from your horrible company and have no advice for you. The job with Liggett goes down as the absolute worst job I ever had...and I one time worked as a cage cleaner for Jack's animal shows.

    I worked at Liggett Vector Brands full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good company to work for if you enjoy working independently most of the time. Above average benefits program. Clear directions from management.

    Cons

    Limited advancement potential. Although direction is clear when communicated, the directions change too often to stay focused on goals. Minimum training and it can negatively affect entry level sales person.

    Advice to Management

    Put forth additional efforts in employee training and layout advancement opportunities and potential.
    Be more proactive in the market rather than reactive.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. Everyone works together as a team. Very fun place to work. Very independent structure. Plus you get a company car

    Cons

    It is kind of difficult being able to grasp everything at first, I can only imagine how hard it would be if you did not have a background in tobacco.

    Longer training period.
