    I have been working at Vector Marketing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am Re-careering Army Veteran First Sergeant/E-8 served 22 yrs & a ST Martin medal holder, currently in my last day of training scheduled this evening, "Advance Training," the other three days of training were very informative & repetitious. Tao District Mgr & Amanda are both awesome!

    Cons

    The "Standard" for the starter kits needs upgraded to look more professional & to have a "Few" more items inside the kit. Training Schedule needs to be handed to each of the new consultants for the 3 day train up.

    Advice to Management

    President Donald J. Trump would agree that an improve starter kit ASAP & watch sales go from 200 million to &350 mil, also have a red pair of S-Shears in the kit. Why Red stands out keep the black, & as I mention ice cream scupper & a bottle/wine opener, change the to be cost effect more attractive & better organized than a rolled up red blanket.

    Very positive attitude even though no sales. Very informative training and motivational incentives.

    Pros

    Great training
    Friendly, helpful management
    Quality products that basically sell themselves

    They will hire literally anyone
    If you don't have wealthy contacts, you won't sell anything and the $17/hour doesn't really go far when you're using your own vehicle
