Prosperity Posted May 12, 2005 Share Posted May 12, 2005 I have been looking for summer jobs lately, mostly without any lucky because of my schedule, but today my worries were over, or so I thought. I had an interview for this company called "Vector Marketing" they are basically a company made to sell the knives that their sister company makes. Well I use the word interview very loosely, I talked to the manager for about a minute then there was a group presentation (there were about 10 other prospective employees) on the quality of the Cutco cutlery. Then the manager called us in one at a time to see which ones got jobs. The guy told me that I was good enough blah blah blah, but I suspect that everyone got the job, otherwise why would he call each person in there individually? It would seem to me that if there were people that did not get a job would just get a "don't call us we'll call you." Secondly they have no reason not to hire everyone they can since the sales people are paid based on "appointments" (sessions were I try to sell knives to people) or commission based on how much they sell. I was already hesitant to work for them because I hate salesmen and I don't want to force people to buy knives they don't need. But, worse yet the guy wanted me to miss school days so I can come in and train to be an employee, and without any pay. My skepticism was at an all time high so I did a google search This website says that some of the things they say about the company are not true, some of the thing the manager said almost verbatim. http://www.geocities.com/cutcocomplaints/cutco_vector_alcas.html This one is about Students Against Vector Exploitation: http://consumeraffairs.com/news03/save.html Aww man, those ****s almost tricked me...
