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

    Pros

    Vector is a great place to get your foot in the door of the business world. You learn many essential business skills in an environment that allows you to embrace failure and learn and build on these experiences

    Cons

    The products sold are great, no questions there. However, every manager is different and therefore everyone will have different experiences. Their mass-recruiting approach can seem very impersonal, and due to the self-starting nature of the job, it is not for everyone. Good place to find out if you're cut out for a career in sales or entrepreneurship!

    Advice to Management

    Giving everyone a chance is important, but make sure to remain completely transparent about the requirements and expectations of the position. It is important that reps expect success, but they need to understand that It takes hard work to achieve and that some of them will not be willing to put in the effort required to achieve the desired results.

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

    Pros

    A funny, upbeat leader who managed to develop a strong bond with her team on her first day (Chloe Elliot).
    Insightful, well-balanced training.
    Strong push towards confidence (which I now see as I begin my Fast Start is a much-needed quality for this line of work)

    Cons

    Confusion with how to read the script when showing Virtual Demo.
    Confusion with filling out and placing customer orders with Virtual Demo.

    Advice to Management

    While the execution of the script is most important in order to properly present CUTCO, maybe more time spent in training learning how to put in orders would be my only suggestion. e.g; have the first two days of training be how to be successful with CUTCO, how to be confident when doing demos, and individual, one-on-one learning for proper knife handing when in demos Then, on the last day have everyone who's doing online demos bring their laptop and have them learn how to do a Virtual Demo properly while others maybe go try to make more appointments. If someone is able to display a proper showing of a Virtual Demo, then they are free to go make calls if they feel as if they're "wasting time". After, there should be a whole 2-3 hour session for how to fill an order, how to "Rolo" an order, making sure to get referrals, etc. I feel inadequate in these areas.
