I own Cutco knives and have worked for the company, this is not a scam and is not a rip-off. This is an American company which makes and sells their products out of Oleans, NY. Made in America is a good thing. Better yet, they really stand behind their products, no matter how long you have had them. I have some Cutco knives that are from the 40's and when I sent them in for free sharpening I got them back in like new condition. The one that had a broken tip was replaced free of charge. Not a scam or a rip off in any manner.

Some people want a job that they can give minimal effort and just work for a paycheck. These types of people need not apply at Vector Marketing. In my first 5 jobs in High School and College, I thought it was not fair that I could be more productive than others, but be paid the same.
Vector has some good incentives so that the people who work harder, can get higher compensation. this makes me smile. After working for several years with Vector, my advice is for people to make their own decision and not be influenced too heavily by others opinions.
Going through job interviews is always beneficial, even if someone is not a good fit the job they are applying for.

You no longer have to pay to work or anything like that. The CEO used to be the Uber guy (no comment) but its different now and doing better with the economy. My personal experience has been good and the site is appropriate for children, that's just people being petty.

Scam type of business, more information here:
Review by Rejeanne7 years ago
Just saying, every beurocracy (virtually every business) is a pyramid scheme. Ive worked for vector for over a year and now im a payed manger. Honestly, if you cant suck it up and sell for a year (making your own hours and getting payed regardless of sales) then you dont deserve a good job.
Its not the best job in the world but probably the best for young adults looking for professional reseme experience. I have been offered 2 jobs in assest management firms and a job as a retail manager just because of my vector experience. Dont knock it until you get the facts straight.
But by all means, dont go to the website. It just makes my job easier.
Review by Sineadmk7 years ago
Verctormarketing.com is a good site. And Vector is not a scam. The only reason why everyone thinks its a scam. Is because they never have gone far with the job. The job is not for everyone, as they tell you. Its all about numbers. You have to do your job in order to change and make money. Yes back in the past people had to pay for their supplies to show people. They have change all of that. Like I'm going to say this job isn't for people that are one set mind set, cocky, and not a team player.

Multi-Level Marketing Scam. Avoid them.
Review by Goad Ninua8 years ago
I worked really hard to find all this information by contacting the actual company and other companies to verify the claims. So I hope this helps!
After weeks, thorough research strongly suggests that Vector Marketing is not a scam. Here's why:
The following claims against Vector Marketing ARE true:
-They company posts a discreet job description on advertisements to attract students and other unemployed individuals.
-The training serves as a class to teach the average person how to become a salesman. It is unpaid.
-The sample kits are NOT required to be purchased to start selling.
-The company does NOT use unethical business practices to attract the student population.
-The company does NOT operate on a pyramid scheme.
-The $14-17 base pay is guaranteed.
-The company does NOT pay through commissions only.
-The company IS a multi-million dollar corporation, growing at a rate of 10% annually.
i worked for this company getting 16.75 per appointment and it was fine. but they do not pay you for gas or anything. i was loosing about 5 dollars a week driving to go to all of the "meetings" that consisted of setting up at least 3 appointments for the week each meeting. (3 meetings a week mandatory up to 5). then they wanted me to pay them $120 dollars to work after 6 months. Point is if you want a job that you spend more than make.. have fun

I was very successful with the company and I wasn't charged for the sales kit. I had to put a deposit which was understandable, but got the check returned when I returned the sales kit.
The Website itself is safe, people are rating it low because they do not like the company, which is not what WOT was intended for.

i know you may all think im a paid person to talk good about cutco.. i started in may and didnt have to pay anything to sign up.. the reason some kids dont make any money is cuz they dont do the work (demos with 25yr olds and up and have a job).. that is their requirements they explain in the interview.. im a college student and make good money when i actually work the job.. more money then ive ever made... ya it may seem like a scam cuz they do hire alot of pple.. the reason they do so is cuz only 20% of them actually stay longer than a month.. but im just saying my part since i have been successful because im not lazy

Review by Bej9 years ago
I filled out an application online and they called me for an interview within a few hours. I was a little skeptical after doing some research on them, but decided to give it a try.
The interview was really weird: they interviewed people two or three at a time and asked some half-hearted questions in an attempt at an 'interview'. If you pass (I honestly don't think anyone fails) the first interview then you're invited back for a special training session. You have to buy your own knives, which is kinda shady if you ask me.
I didn't go back to the second interview.

I've heard about a lot of good things about this company. The experience people get is ridiculous. And they were saying that there is no start up fee anymore. I'm gonna give it a shot!
Review by Kwwaiichan9 years ago
if you actually do work there you would know that it has been around for 61 years and they sell the highest quality knives in the world (FACT) they have a FOREVER guarantee that guarantee's your product for... get this... FOREVER. even your children who inherits your knives will get them sharpened and polished for free. working there you get $16 per demo you do (the base pay) or you automatically get 10%-50% (depending on your position) on whatever you sell (commission). You can think this is a bad product or company but all i'm saying is that you are ignorant. yes i do work here.
Review by Jjingvl Stoupignan9 years ago
To people that have heard all of the so-called 'horror stories' about how this is a scam: most, if not all of what people are complaining about is covered by managers BEFORE you are hired.
Charging for a starter kit? It's a security deposit that you can get back.
Payment concerns? Fully covered.
Training seminar - mandatory attendance? It's to ensure you know what you are doing.
The thing is, for every hundred people that have a good experience, only a few will post about it.

It makes me sad when people are so uneducated they call a business a scam without knowing anything about it.... Vector Marketing is direct sales meaning the business works just like avon and mary kay... you have to get a sample kit set up appointments and do your job as an independent contractor... if you do your job you make money simlpe as that
Review by Ulkomailta Isseroff10 years ago
they will send you an interview as soon as you apply.
they make you go to more than one to make you feel special. then you get the job
and oh btw you have to pay approx 300$ to buy some knives that you are responsible to sell. so yeah pretty much a legal scam
Review by PAMeg Laiyemo10 years ago
Vector has been around for 28 years and is a great company. I have worked on and off for them for 4 years and they are perfectly reliable. No it isn't exactly the way it sounds, but that is because it is unlike any other job out there. The company, benefits, and money making potential are all for real. It is NOT a pyramid scheme or a scam. They are a marketing company which is a subsidary of Cutco, and they sell Cutco brand cutlery. I have done very well with them. Give them a chance and they won't disappoint you.
Review by Moique Basmajyan10 years ago
i just applied for them, met them, and got accepted by them......they are legit and trust worthy....beyond that if you are paying them more money than your making, that's probably your fault.

Errr.. I'm not quite sure how to approach this but this seems like a pretty decent place to get a summer job. Does anyone know whether the company is at all trustworthy?
