- Flexible hours (work when you want & work as much or as little as you want) - Very motivating and a positive work place - Managers are super encouraging and positive and want you to succeed - Very easy to present -Awesome training (you will really understand what you’re doing especially after your first practice demo) - Tons of bonuses
- You start out by booking appointments with family and friends family, which might be difficult for some people who don’t have many people to reach out to, but if you do, this is a pro!

My first impressions were pretty open. During this pandemic there aren't many options that don't require face to face contact and my first priority is having a schedule that I control and keeping my family safe. Today is only my third day of training (first day of advanced training) and though my start has been rough, the office is very helpful in giving me tips and advice. I don't have much more to say at the moment since I'm very new, but I will say that Vector Marketing is worth a shot. I love my job so far and I'm sure I will continue to love it as time goes by!
There are no cons that I can think of because unlike my other jobs, my superiors are helpful and make time to be available when I need them. My hours are flexible and leave me the option to stop what I'm doing and take care of business when I please. I have more freedom this way and I can work from the comfort safety of my home.

I love the energy everyone has and I love the office environment. I love the goals to keep everyone motivated and how I can have a flexible schedule and make my own hours!
Can't think of any yet

The people at Vector Marketing in South Carolina were all very nice and accommodating. The hours were flexible and the job provides the opportunity to make several connections within the community.
It works under a pyramid model, so if you continue to get clients that have the product, they will continue volunteering people who most likely already have the product and it becomes very difficult to sell.

It was a positive environment and decent internship pay
Weird work hours and not as 'flexible' as they may say

The hours are as flexible as you want them to be. The pay is great; it is REALLLLY great. You get paid whether you sell anything or not. The work environment is pretty positive; the manager always pushes you to do your absolute best and gives you words of wisdom. You don't have to pay for training. The training is very helpful and informative.
The hours are only flexible if you don't wanna make a lot of money. You only get paid by appointment, not by hour, so if you have a 2 hour long appointment, you'll still only get 15 bucks. If your commission from the sale is less than that of the base pay or if you didn't sell anything at all. You have to do A LOT of work to get an appointment. You have to call people that you know to get appointments. They don't pay you for training. The training is exhausting. And you spend about 6 hours at training for 3 whole days. There are also advanced training sessions that you must go to.1

The only problem is that you get flexible hours and can set your own appointments.
Wow! where do I begin. Once you do the interview they don't inform you of how the base pay works or what commission you receive as a new representative. So the pay IS NOT per hour. The pay is per appointment or presentation if that's a better term. Now they don't do cold calls. They have you sell or show to your friends and relatives under the pretense of "they don't have to buy anything because you still get paid to show it". The problem with this is, they have you personalize the presentation by sharing your personal goals and dreams and tie it to the job. So basically if the person doesn't purchase anything during the presentation they aren't "supporting your goals and dreams". This gets worse because again you are presenting to people you know and have a bond with. On top of that the products are expensive! Majority of people can't afford these products even with the highly promoted 5 pay. The more affordable ones are single items like a spatula spreader. Which cost like what 60 something. Even if it's forever guarantee that's lot of money upfront on a spatula. Secondly at the end of the presentation they tell you to guilt trip the customer which are your friends and relatives if they refuse to give you referrals. Uhm, No! That's private information regardless if you tell people that they will have the chance to contact them before you call them to advertise Cutco, they have no reason to believe you. Don't even get me started on the unpaid 3 day training which is 5-6 hours of your precious time especially as a student in high-school or college. Where you have assignments to complete like essays. Did I mention that commission is only 10%. So 10% of a spatula spreader is only $6. So an entire presentation of an hour and some change to only get $6 plus a base pay of $17. Nope nope nope. Ridiculous it would take me 3 or 4 presentstions to actually make a decent amount in a day. By the way I used spatula as an example for your family trying to "support you" and buying at least one item. They might as well gift you $60 without purchasing an item. On top of that they get you to refer your personal contacts on the third day of training when you haven't even gotten experience on the job. So you're still in this fantasy land not knowing that the job sucks and how it affects your relationships with people. I don't like playing games by emotionally guilt tripping my relatives or friends or making them do something uncomfortable like sharing their personal contacts or anyone's information without their permission in a form so I can get paid. Then ontop of that being guilt tripped by a manager when I only received 3 referrals when they want at least 10. That's pushing it! All in all you are better off having an hourly paid job rather than a measly $17 per presentation job where you are doing extensive marketing for a company that doesn't really care about you or your friends and family that they take advantage of. They even harrased my friend after she said she wasn't interested in the job. A receptionist reached out to her saying I referred her which I did on my third day of training. When she told them she wasn't interested they asked her why. I told her what to say to get out of the situation. "I'm not jnterested in having a job right now." I told her to block her. Which she did only to have another manager contact her afterwards about the job. He contacted her right after she blocked the first person. That's harassment Vector. You pull young people in and exploit them and their friends because they lack experience and or are desperate for a job. That's disappointing and disgusting. People considering vector find a better company to work for.7

Very enthusiastic to new and veteran workers and very flexible with hours and work schedules
Very time consuming with their demos and it’s hard to start with friends and family
