Is Vector Marketing a Scam?

That’s the question you’re asking yourself, right? You want to know if Vector Marketing is a legit company. And when the suggestion popped up in the Google search (or whichever search engine you use), you saw Vector’s corporate site, but you also saw “Vector Marketing Scam.” Maybe you’ve even seen someone online make a more declarative statement such as “Vector Marketing is a scam because they take advantage of college students or utilize dishonest marketing practices.” So which is it – does Vector Marketing take advantage of naïve college students, or do they actually offer a unique opportunity for students to gain professional skills and experience while potentially earning some income in the process?

This site is designed to answer those questions. For several years, I was a sales representative with Vector Marketing, selling Cutco Cutlery, and these are my thoughts. In recent years I’ve read with some level of amusement the characterizations of the company, ranging from the ranks of those who are apparently convinced that the company is “evil,” to the opposing viewpoint from some Vector reps who will sometimes assert that “Vector is the greatest company ever!” Hopefully I can shed some unbiased light onto this discussion, and from there you can make up your own mind.

You’re probably wondering why I’m taking the time to make this website since I’m no longer a Vector rep. Personally, I attribute a lot of my career success to my time as a Vector sales rep and found it to be a completely worthwhile experience. Vector Marketing has gotten a bad rap on the Internet over the past few years and I want to help clear the air.

Here’s a video I found on YouTube from a fellow rep that you may find helpful:
