I dont know what it was like in the 90's but you most certainly dont have to buy anything. I interveiwed on febuary 13 and start selling febuary 20. Its all about your personality and motivation. Its a sales job not a office job and its certainly not retail or fast food. Anyone who does not trust it just probably doesnt have the salesman blood in them. I was unsure at first too but when I asked the right questions I got good answers. This, for a change , is not a scam . Most scams make you spend money to make money. Cutco gives you demo product for absolutely free. The none believers probably didnt comprehend the information and werenot able to make it through the hour long prescreen.

Cutco made me pay for use of THEIR knives. Of course this was like 20 years ago. I believe the fee was $50 or $60

I have an interview in 28 min. I am not near 25 years of age. But I have faith. People are as successful as they believe they will be. Not all people have the ability to do some things. Companies normally don't stay in business for many years unless they are doing things in the right way.

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.

After reading the possitive comments saying they made 80 k or 20 k during the summer...if thats the case anyone would be doing this.they are desperate to recruit which means they have a high turnover ratio.sales jobs arent worth the time and money in this economy if there isnt an hourly or guarantee. 100 percent of scams dont offer that bc they know 98 percent of the people will probably get a few sales and get discouraged and quit...still making the company money..they are just as good as the people knocking on your door trying to sell you a nee roof.oh and btw do you think people that had anything good yo say were just sooo hqppy with their experience they decided to google this and comment specifically. Ill wait.

The people that are saying on here that Vector is great are most likely the con artists that work for this company. It is simply a scam...

This place IS a scam and here's why. First, you are misled by the first person that you talk to about the position about the nature of the job. It's first put that you would be working for the company but you find out late on that you're actually an independent contractor. This is a deceptive business tactic by dfinition because there should be consistency from beginning to end about what you are going to be doing. They say that you're not going door-to-door which is technically true but what you don't find out until the first day of training is that YOUR friends and family are your client-base. They say that the customer calls you but it's actually you that calls them AND you get their number from--SURPRISE-- YOUR friends and family. Vector isn't throwing anything in the kitty, so to speak, as far as "work". If you don't have friends and family with disposable income and with friends who have disposable income you're dead in the water right from the beginning and you might as well not waste your time.

They talk a good game about staying positive and believing in yourself but positivity only goes so far. All the positivity in the world isn't going to create demand where there is none. Believing that you can give a good presentation and giving one isn't going to materialize disposable income into the pockets of the vast majority of my friends and family who just don't have the money to support me in this endeavor, and let's not pretend that that's not what it's going to take if Vector or Cutco isn't sending you on appointments like they lead you to believe initially. Sure, they never technically said the words "we send you pllaces" but with the pitch that they give you they might as well. That is also a deceptive business practice at worst and a lawyer's dodge at best especially when they play little games to get you psychologically invested in the idea of a "job" that in reality is not really being offered. You file a 1099 tax return for this "position" now what does that tell you as compared to what the initial phone call and first interview leads a reasonable person to believe?

They're going to get what they want from you no matter what and here's how they do it: Right from the beginning of the first interview they ask you to fill out a list of people that you know and their phone numbers so they have more sheep to possibly fleece and they retain the list no matter what. Second, they have set things up so that if you can't get confirmed appointments (of your own) the show-set of cutlery that you use for your presentations and demonstrations has to come back to Vector, unless you want to buy it at a really good discount for yourself. Hook, line, and sinker! If by conicidence you happen to have friends and family that have money and that are willing to give you the phone numbers of other people with money then great! I guess they'd like that too I suppose. Boy these guys are good! I'm impressed at the amount of thought and presentation has gone into this scam, but it is a scam none the less.

Feels good to have your time wasted and have false hope dangled in front of your face when you're in a desperate and difficult time in your life looking for a way to support yourself and your family. The time and gas money that I wasted going back and forth to Vector could have been put to a better use. Feels good to have your hopes teased buy a group of good old fashioned, b#&@$#!t business men. This really instills confidence in the American business community to have a company out there like Vector. Thanks for everything!

I'm an ethical and professional businessman and I could sell meat to vegetarians but at $15 a presentation (of which a whole $3 out of it is supposed to be gas money), none of which come as a result of Vector or Cutco, there is no way that I could live on this as any type of income. This arrangement seems to favor the rich and the upper middle-class people who already associate in circles that I do not have access to coming from the side of town that I come from. It's not like I'm against getting to know people that are different than me but how enthusiastic are they about getting to know me? How enthusiastic are they about doing business with me? There's probably not very much rush for them to do that or else we wouldn't be associated in different circles in the first place. There is a socioeconomic barrier to being successful at Vector that is not fair because it seems to represent and enforce the already glaring contrast between the haves and the have nots in our society. Vector presents the quintessential "American Dream" as what it gives you an opportunity to take part in but only those who ALREADY have money and connections have a real chance of achieving anything resembling success. It's not an "American Dream" for me; it's an "American Nightmare".

Thank you Vernon. I appreciate your honesty. I have an interview tomorrow and I think I might cancel. It seems like they pull you in and teach you how to be positive so they can make money. Keep it real man, again I appreciate it!!
