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

    Pros

    -Learn valuable business skills
    -Very high bonuses/unlimited income potential
    -Base pay to help you get started off
    -Lots of assistance from management
    -Very fast advancement and promotions

    Cons

    -They'll pretty much hire anyone

    Advice to Management

    Be a bit more selective with who you hire, hiring less people will make the job more appealing to higher quality applicants

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work building your postive individual's... That once started from the bottom and now their moving on up to the top... By far this is the best job ever the management is amazing and are great role models when you wanna one day run your own business

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

    Pros

    -Good Pay
    -Flexible Schedule
    -Very friendly
    -Country-wide
    -Endless opportunities

    Cons

    -They will hire nearly anyone
    -Favoritism is active
    -Sketchy, small office

    Advice to Management

    You guys claim to be the best, but it doesn't show in the quality of the workplace. I get why you hire a lot of people and I think it's also a good thing for new people to get work experience.

    - Job is fairly easy

    - Work is easy, but very repetitive and tedious

    Pros

    Get's you hyped up to work hard

    Cons

    Door to door selling where you are referred to friends and family. No references, no money, no minimum guaranteed pay, transport on you.

    Advice to Management

    Don't overstate the position and don't make it seem the best job in the world

    I worked at Vector Marketing full-time

    Pros

    Freedom to pitch anyone that enters the store.

    Cons

    Unrealistic commission rates to achieve. Your numbers reset at the end of each day and its tough to achieve the higher number of sales (i believe it was 14) to get the full commission rate. Sometimes the Canadian tire staff did not like having you around.

    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.
