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

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing. It’s a scam.

    Cons

    What a scam. Vector will hire anyone for their pyramid scheme. Stop listening to these fake reviews. You work door to door and only get paid for commission. After finding out this info, I decided to leave during the group interview. The manger was very clearly a narcissist, as he was displeased at my choice and called me a liar for having to leave. Even they know young adults that aren’t easily tricked are sensible enough not to work for them. Please don’t be fooled by these reviews written by the company. It’s a despicable practice, and you’re better off not going anywhere near this company preying on American youth.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so rude to people who aren’t impressed with your company. You’d be better at the evil company thing if you were actually successful at tricking people behind a smile and nice attitude.

    I worked at Vector Marketing (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy job to obtain, I was hired on the spot (that's a red flag).

    Cons

    Too many to list - made to believe that the opportunities are pretty high, but it's more of a door to door sales job. You're encouraged to start with friends and family, since they're readily available. A quick question of how you feel about door to door salespeople and friends and family trying to sell you things makes you realize that the job isn't going to work out. Outside that ... pyramid scheme/scam.

    I worked at Vector Marketing part-time

    Pros

    Nothing at all! Don’t waste your time

    Cons

    Pyramid scheme to the max! You basically have to harass your friends and family to sell knives and it makes you feel slimy. My “manager” was crazy religious and often made us watch these religious videos which made us all uncomfortable. When I told them I wanted to leave they told me I had to make THREE MORE SALES to “end on good terms”. I just walked out. Don’t waste your time.

    Advice to Management

    Stop luring kids with promises of money and happiness just to sell your knives.

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

    Pros

    None, don't waste your time.

    Cons

    Pyramid scheme, no benefits, my manager was the same age as me, I received my first and only check by the end of the entire summer I worked there it was a grand total of $17 after collecting $700 in sales from my friends and family who I can't even look in the eye now because I've tried to sell them knives.

    Advice to Management

    Stop luring young naive high school graduates. I am traumatized by sales now.

    Pros

    I cannot think of a pro.

    Cons

    This corporation thrives on naive college students in order to receive the majority of their staffing. Their online advertisements state that you get paid $15/hour, but this is entirely false. You get paid $15 for every appointment you set up with a client that you have to find yourself. In other words, it's your standard pyramid scheme, where they try to rope in students who do not know any better.

    I worked at Vector Marketing full-time

    Pros

    none, you might as well work for uber or doordash

    Cons

    Its a pyramid scheme were you sell poor knifes that no one who has heard of the internet or legit knifes like Wusthof will ever buy. You get 13$ per presentation but only if that person is over 30 years old and owns property lol!

    Advice to Management

    stop taking advantage of people who are looking for a legit job.
