I am someone that has been looking for a job for the longest time now and since I am graduating college in a couple of weeks, I have to look for one to get my name out there. Looking for a job and maybe getting interviews is a little hard and possible depressing if you ask me when you see a lot of people that somehow got a job before you did when you have more experience, but there was one company that I’ve thought was something that I would have expected like an actual paying job to help people out, but really it was not and I am talking about is Vector Marketing.
This is not the first time they would pull this type of stunt on me because the first time around was 2010 when they posed as “ecolight” when I was in need of a job. They were at my school and I told them that I needed a job. I filled out the application and waited until it was true. The day right after Labor Day of that year they called and said I had an interview the first time. Happy enough, I told my mother, but she was iffy about this, but drove me to the place where this was at the time by the Chuck E Chesse here. However, this place was not the typical office, it was a room with chairs and a TV as I looked around and said “something is not right” right then and there I was interviewed and I was asked questions. As soon as I was done, I had to sit through a seminar. This was not a typical job interview where it was one and done until you got the call. These people wanted us to sell CUTCO Knives. Like who the heck would buy knives in this type of economy we have right now and what is hard buying knives as at SEARS? After sitting there for nearly an hour in a half, my phone rang as it was my mom as she said something was not right. I got up and left and told them that this was not for me. He would then say “good luck in finding a job” as I didn’t look back and went down stairs. Ever since I have been looking for a job since that, I have been on interviews, but I was not successful just yet until last Friday where I thought this would be the straw.
At school last Friday, I saw something that was a flyer as this would be the perfect chance for me getting a job with the holidays coming up really soon. I went into the bathroom where nobody could have heard me talk about this. While using the bathroom, this person on the phone at this place told me that this was a job for college income and that I could help people out. It was 15 dollars per appointment and they would have kept me if they liked me. In agreement, I said yes, but weirdly, they put my interview for Saturday which was odd because Saturday is normally a weekend for some people and that job interviews don’t take place (As I really don’t know about that one). My mom and I had to clean the kitchen out yesterday and I got ready for this interview as we were told to be there 15 minutes early. As soon as I got there, this place was in a white building and I said to myself “Something is not right”. I looked and tried to find the floor in the email that was sent with the room number. I found it as I was looking around and noticed that this was the same thing they bribed me into back nearly three years ago. I saw the chairs, I saw the TV and most importantly, I saw the CUTCO advertisement. “Son of a Bitch” I said to myself and walked right on out. They once again tried to bribe me and I didn’t allow it. I went back to my mom’s van, pissed off and told her that it was the same damn people that tried to bribe me into working for them selling knives and leaving me frustrated once more in finding a job.
So the bottom line is this, if you see something shady like an ad or anything like that and you apply and you have to be interviewed by them in some random place and find it its Vector or you see anything online like Monster or Career from them, DON’T GO TO THEM! They are a scam and they are desperate for people to sell their knives for you. I don’t care if you work for vector or not, I don’t like them and they are not who they are told to be. Other then my job search, I am going to be looking still and hopefully finding some ones that will actually pay you and not some appointment. I have asked many of my friends if they can find me one, but some of them cannot even help me out which is very sad.
