You've got questions; we've got answers.
If you still can't find an answer, tweet us! @VectorCanada is here to help you.
What kind of work is this?
Everyone starts at Vector Marketing Canada as an entry-level sales representative. Our reps schedule appointments and introduce prospective customers to CUTCO Cutlery through one-on-one demonstrations. This can happen in a customer's home or online with a customer. This has been pretty effective for us - over 15 million customers use CUTCO in their kitchens every day. A sales rep's day includes:
- Setting appointments through personal contacts and referrals
- Showing CUTCO to potential customers and taking purchase orders
- Checking in with the office.
We get that this is a little bit different than a 9 to 5 sort of job, but we've found people really enjoy the flexibility and opportunity this position provides.
How am I paid?
Our reps earn commissions for sales made. We also offer a guaranteed minimum commission per qualified appointment.This means you're guaranteed to earn something for each qualified appointment completed, whether or not you sell anything. We pay weekly. So, you'll get to see your hard work pay off at the end of each working week.
Are there any start-up costs?
Nope. Once an individual completes training to become a sales representative, they're loaned a CUTCO sample set that has a retail value of $502. As long as you remain active in the business, you'll be able to borrow a sample kit for your demonstrations and show potential customers how great our products are. If you eventually decide you don't want to continue selling CUTCO, just send back the sample kit and you're good to go.
How do I get appointments?
You get started by showing CUTCO to people you know to get some good practice. This allows you to become comfortable with the process and make mistakes without worrying about it. In training, we teach you how to ask those people for referrals, or leads, others who might be interested in taking a look at CUTCO. This effective friends of "friends" process ensures that you're always connected to your prospective customer, and you don't have to worry about walking into a complete stranger's house. Your success is based on a proven word-of-mouth approach that we teach you.
What's my work schedule like?
Your work schedule is entirely up to you. Vector sales representatives are able to set their own appointments and determine how many they'll complete each week. Don't worry about things like minimum hours or unpredictable calendars; you can set your own schedule week-by-week based on when you're available to work.
Do I need experience?
Nope. Vector Marketing Canada provides all the training you need to succeed as a sales representative. The initial training seminar is a three-day program led by experienced Vector professionals. You can participate at a local office or online, whichever works for you. Don't worry: these sessions are interactive, engaging, and fun. On top of that, we offer optional ongoing training sessions and conferences. We're always learning.
What are the qualifications?
Applicants need to be at least 17 years old. We look for people who are:
- Willing to learn
- Positive thinking
However, these attributes alone won't guarantee a successful CUTCO career.
What does it take to be successful?
Successful representatives are committed, positive, and communicate frequently with their local office. This open line of communication is important because our offices are filled with supportive, fun, and experienced people who want to help you succeed at the level you desire.
