Frequently Asked Questions
Should I Still Schedule An Interview If I Am Unsure This Is The Right Fit?
Of course. It never hurts to learn more and get a professional interview experience.
This may be exactly what you are looking for and the opportunity may change your life but you never know until you find out. By coming in you can at least you can make an educated decision for yourself and fully understand an opportunity that so many people feel have made a huge difference in their life.
Simply put, why not? Just because you come in for an interview does not mean you have to accept the offer if you were offered a spot on the team.
How Does The Interview Work?
Right now we are conducting all of our interviews over a group videochat interview. We run a group interview so that the manager can go through the position in full detail and anyone we bring onto the team fully understands every detail. Basically, our scheduled applicants receive an email with the link and meet the manager over videochat.
Afterwards, the manager will answer any questions you might have one on one, ask some questions to get to know you, and will let you know whether or not they determine you to be a good fit for our team.
Is There A Start-Up Cost?
Of course not! Reps never have to pay anything. They just do virtual powerpoint presentations on zoom, and they enter orders online for their customers. We also have plenty of contests where reps can win a ton of free things which are obviously theirs to keep.
Do I Need Sales Experience?
No, you don’t need sales experience to begin working at Vector. We train our representatives on Zoom and as long as someone follows our programs we can help them succeed! What we look for in an applicant is someone who is positive and coachable.
What Skills Can I Gain Working With Vector?
The job is about so much more than selling CUTCO. Your career path may not be a sales, but every professional should know how to sell themselves. Most of our representatives have no sales experience and do not plan on pursuing sales in the future.
We pride our business on the teaching of the professional skills needed to succeed in the workplace. Some of the skills that we would help you develop are communication, networking, time management, goal setting, public speaking, handling adversity, and so much more!
Through the professional development opportunities that we offer, we will help you transform into the most confident and motivated version of yourself.
How Does Pay Work?
Every sales representative earns a minimum of $22 per appointment with opportunities for advancement based on performance. The average appointment lasts approximately one hour. Whether or not a representative makes a sale, they are guaranteed $22 per appointment. If a representative makes sales, and 10% of their weekly sales exceed the pay of $22 per appointment, the representative is paid commission instead.
Think of the base-pay as a floor to stand on, but there’s no ceiling! (AKA our reps never make less than $22 per appointment, but most of our reps make much more!)
What Is Cutco?
Cutco is a line of high-quality kitchen cutlery, cookware, flatware, and a few outdoor items and accessories. It is made in the United States, has been around for over 70 years and is awesome. Our customers love it. We have over 19 million referred customers in the US alone. Over 90 percent of them rate the product a perfect 5/5 stars.
How Does Training Work?
Vector offers a one-time, three-day comprehensive professional training. We’ll teach you everything that you would need to know to be successful at Vector and many skills for life! From learning the Cutco demonstration to learning time-management, interpersonal skills, and so much more, you’ll feel ready to begin working at the end of your training.
Who Would I Present To?
Representatives start by doing paid practice appointments with people they are comfortable with to get experience. At the end of every presentations they ask their customers who they know that might be nice enough to sit down with them, and work off a referral basis. Our representatives average 7+ referrals per appointment! It creates a self sustaining network. For experienced reps, we also have other avenues to create business from service call leads, our fair and show program, or our business gift program.
Why Does Vector Work With So Many Students?
We offer extremely flexible schedules, and we allow our students to choose how much they would like to work around school and time with friends and family. We also actually have a scholarship that students can work towards winning, called the All American Scholarship, which we award to 100 students per year. What we have found is that students are looking for the opportunity to earn what they are worth and build their resume. All we need are fun, positive coachable people who follow our programs. We have plenty of people on our team who are not students as well.
Where Are We Located?
Interviews are scheduled on a first-applied, first-considered basis.
