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

    Pros

    I've been with the company for a year now and love the environment and culture. Vector, unlike most work places, is so positive and recognizes your hard work instead of recognizing what you're doing wrong. I've grown personally, professionally, and definitely financially. As a college student, I always thought I would be broke but I have 6k in my savings. I've made grand paychecks here when before I was making minimum wage. I'm 20 years old and have more life skills than most. I've learned about investing, I'm able to travel, I have so many like minded hard working friends that this company has blessed me with. Cant say enough good things! We get to represent an amazing product while most sales people arent passionate about what they represent.

    Cons

    There is so much misinformation/ outdated info on the internet about the company its ridiculous. You DO NOT pay for a sample kit. Every office is different so if someone had a bad experience somewhere, it's probably that specific manager. Most Vector managers are amazing and kind hearted but like every company, theres going to be a small group that gives the company a bad rep. Vector doesnt deserve that, The job isn't for everyone but I wish people would stop trashing it when it didnt work for them because you're potentially ruining the opportunity for others.

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

    Pros

    Working for Cutco is the best job I’ve ever had!! Work hard and you’ll see it in your paychecks. It’s not rare to get a $1k + paycheck IN ONE WEEK!! The people are amazing and so is the manager, by far the best boss I’ve ever had. It also gives you incredible business and communication skills that any college student would benefit from, no matter their major.

    Cons

    There are absolutely no cons, really fun work environment and great opportunity

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, best management I’ve ever seen and am pretty sure I’ll ever see
