Do a Google search on "Vector Marketing Scam". That should give you a good idea what you're dealing with.

it sounds like to me the people who say it is a scam only said that because they did not put in the effort to make the money. it is part of the better business beauro. i plan on trying it out for a little bit...

Good Luck with that dummy, their whole scam is built around suckers like you. You obviously didn't get the point of the article. You ARE the customer and any sorry relatives you can con into buying these ridiculous knives. Nobody in this day and age is buying knives from a door to door salesman!

Actually. I work for this company. You are ignorant. I have made 2000 bucks so far in the past month. Vector Marketing is a division of Cutco Cutlery which sells Cutco products. Cutco has been around since 1949. We do not go door to door. No cold calls. It is part of the BBB. YouTube "modern marvels cutco" if you aren't too lazy to do your own research.

I worked for Vector for four years as a college student. In that time I made over $80,000 while going to school full time. It is a self motivated job. You get out what you put into it. Because of my Vector resume I now have a big time job with a fortune 500 company.

It is most definitely a scam. Go to ripoffreport and type in vector. They always have sleazy managers and just open up in a sketchy building. The were actually bought by a fortune 500 company 20 years ago and lie about Henckels knives which are only $480. Sure the overpriced knived may be great, but their employment sucks. They also discriminate when it comes to age. Only 25 and under. They just opened up a new office in Bartlett,TN. Don't be fooled. I'm not a mad man. I just don't want anyone wasting their time or money/gas on this SCAM.

Hahaha. If you think this is a scam, you clearly haven't given it a try. I'm just turned 19, only worked for one summer, and have made somewhere around 20,000$. I bought 2 cars and saved around five figures for myself. Not only do you make a killing if you actually commit to it, but the people in the offices are amazing; the only thing you can get fired for is being negative. I finished 13th in the nation, and got part of a scholarship for shcool this coming year. And, I'm going through management training to be a branch manager next summer.

My average sale is around $1,4000, and I make 50%.
It's ridiculous.

Why don't you give it a try before you badmouth it?
I'll bet my ridiculous income this summer that you didn't.

I've worked in the Memphis office over 7 months now... I am both a receptionist and sales rep. I am literally in the office at least 40 hours a week, so you can pretty much bet that I know what goes on. It's legit. Give our office a call-- I will answer or call you back. I have worked with the same managers from the time I got here and I have watched them do nothing but go above and beyond... I see people start off, fresh out of training, and it usually goes one of two ways.

They either keep a good attitude and stick with it... those are the successful people (like Matthew, above, who I actually know... Hey!!), or they don't have the guts/make the effort to be their own boss, fail, then they get bitter and blame the company. Yes, times are tough and while being cautious is a good thing, there is a point where you have to look beyond google and try something for yourself.

It used to bother me that people that had never even tried working here would say negative things about us, but over time my perspective has changed. If you are so ignorant that you make a decision based on what you read on the internet, then in MY opinion you really don't deserve the opportunity that Vector offers and quite frankly I don't want to work with you anyway :)

You know, if things are so legit then why, when you call their so-called office do you get a phone company disconnect message "no longer in service at this time". Semi-pyramid scheme to me... they sell to those who think they can sell, and they generally can't.

in college in the 90's i went to the Cutco recruiting meeting. The guy that ran it was a complete loon. After the whole spiel, they bring you in one by one into a room to see if you are willing to sell their knives. The guy that went in before me refused. When i went in, the guy was like "dont be like the guy before you". Complete sales pitch and I bought it. I think I had to pay like $80 to use their knives. I never went back. They are good knives though.

I have worked with this company and have seen all the ins and outs. The company works all off referrals. There is no door to door selling and it is a great resume builder. I went and showed my family and friends to start, did some of them buy...yes, but most of them didnt. After the fact most of my customers were off referrals. People who loved to cook and were interested in seeing the product. I have made tons of money and i hardly view the job as work. I have received several job offers from people i was pitching the product to.
