Total pyramid scheme. I wanted a job so badly while I was a freshman in college, couldn't even get hired in retail, so I resorted to doing this. I thought it was totally legitimate when I first interviewed, after I figured you had to sale within this triangle type of thing, I knew then and there that it was a total scam. I feel sorry for the young people who actually took it seriously and put a lot of time and effort into that. Also, there was a workman's compensation lawsuit filed against Vector and I was apart of that for some weird reason. The plaintiff was suing them for something like 13 mil, but a lot of that was distributed to others as well as legal fees. What a crazy world we live in. Vector could thrive, if they would hire young people for trade shows to do promotions. That would work better than the pyramid sales scam that they have going on. Everyone knows that that doesn't work. The only people that will buy from you is your family.

A good friend of mine worked for them right after college. She was all mad at everybody because we wouldn't buy her stupid knives. I was like, I'm 21 and live at home, what the hayle I need with some $600 knives? She seriously caught attitude with her friends and family because we wouldn't bite. She went out driving around trying to sell to restaurants and burn up all her gas to come home with nothing, while I went to actual work and got a paycheck. I can't believe this company is still around.

Okay. Don't judge me :/ but I worked for them for almost 2 years.

They got me right out of high school, and I surprisingly sold a bunch of knives.
(Cutco is actually a good brand)

The problems I had came when they asked me to be a sales manager.
My District manager (head guy) was very demanding of time.

His mother was dying and he went back to his hometown every week to see her. This left me in charge (a 19 year old) of running interviews, training seminars, selling, calling reps after appointments, putting flyers on cars, etc. I literally never got a break.

Every time I felt like I was putting too much time in for such little gain, he would give me a coming to Jesus speech and make me feel like wasn't doing enough to justify my feelings ( "well look at your schedule, you're running 2 interviews this afternoon, and a team meeting later, so you have all morning to go on appointments and sell too!") it became too much after my father got sick and was dying, and he told me too bad his mother was dying too and he needed to be by her side.

That's when I realized he didn't give a crap about me just my sales and 12+ hour days running HIS business for like 20 bucks a day.
I was definitely naive during that time, but I had some good times working there too. The people equal to you aren't bad, but the higher up managers will use you til they can't use you anymore.

I knew a girl who actually did extremely well selling these knives. She has awards and stuff for being #1 or some crap. She was Amish and sold to everyone.

I did back when I was fresh out of highschool. I made some quick money with it but then found a better business model. I have one friend who broke records there and he know works with me on the current projects I work on. If your looking to make extra income lemme know if you'd like to check out what we are working on. It's online marketing and distribution and you can sell pretty much everything from toothpaste to cellphone contracts. The knives are awesome but way over priced. Our marketing company is based on consumable goods. Which creates ongoing residual income. And since its all done from a smartphone you can work wherever you want and whenever you want. But you get paid strictly off volume 100% commission. We do the work for you until we help you make atleast $500 while you watch, and continue training you as your network grows. Reply back if you want to make some real dough and not have to go to people's houses and give presentations for very expensive knives to most people who have no money.

Amway is the only 12billion dollar corporation which gives the average joe/Joann a opportunity to make allot of money so u guessed rite. I assure you you Havnt been there and done the way my team conducts business. Prices have been lowered, pay has went up, registration license has went down, no meetings, all business is conducted through phone/text/Internet. The average person I train makes $500 their 1st month working about 5-10 hours a week. I have been able to cut my work hours as a cemetery manager to partme because of it. And it took a solid income to be able to do that. Not trying to convince anyone but I am willing to help anyone who has ambition to get more out of life than just one source of income which is truly a pyramid scheme,(a JOB) which is structured as a pyrami just like any organization except you'll never make more than your boss.. I say job stands for just over broke because I don't know to many people working one that have money after they pay there bills. The more income sources the better. Amway is just one of the business I own. But it gave me the money to start 2 others and continues to grow. Especially in this broke economy more people are looking to make extra income than in the history of this great country we live in because today a job just don't cut it. Unless you have a professional position but then you spend most of your time slaving away at workable miss out on doing what means most to you. Amway is just a opportunity. You get out what you put in. I worked hard early on and now am reaping the rewards!

I was an IBO with amway for a year. I put in alot of hard work, effort, time and money to make nothing. I didn't even make enough to make up what I paid to get started. You have to have a really good paying, full time job to pay for all the conventions they have throughout the year. But by the time you work the hours at the full time job, you can't get time off to go to them. Amway's products are very good, but people want product in hand at the time of purchase and they do become pricey. That was what I constantly ran into. I had a great upline, but the economy around here sucks! So it was like pulling teeth to get customers. I love sales, but not when I had no product and no way to purchase it, therefore making no money. If you have the money to do it, amway is a great company, but people talk it up to be more than what it is. It's even harder to get people to start their own business with amway, when they see how hard and costly it truly is. I was in amway in 2011-2012, so how much has it changed? I see people who signed up not long before I did still struggling to make ends meet, but still believe in the amway dream of making millions of dollars, when that is a very good marketing ploy to get people to sign up. They entice you with telling you about all these young people who make a bunch of money, but the actuality of it happening are slim to none.

You were hooked up with the wrong people. All the retail checks go on a card Amway gives you and the profits on there in 2 days

In those 3 years the company went from 9 billion to 12 billion. They lowered prices and raised pay. Putting more emphasis on retailing product and fast track bonuses. So people can make money fast rite out the gate
