Fair. Exciting. Motivating. Competitive.
Security with a base; opportunity through incentives.Our reps receive a guaranteed base pay when they show CUTCO® to a qualified potential customer. So they get paid whether or not the customer purchases.
Our reps are not pushy, and we don’t want them to be. The guaranteed base pay takes the pressure off our reps so they never have to be rude or forceful with potential customers.
But, you ask, “How can they pay reps when a sale is not made?” Great question. Since most people who see CUTCO® choose to purchase at least one knife, we can create a safety net for all of our reps. We want to encourage and provide incentives to our reps to put themselves out there and try to make a sale. You’re not always going to make a sale with a potential customer, and that’s ok.
While our reps are guaranteed to make a base pay each time they show CUTCO®, they can earn more than what’s guaranteed through incentives from completing a sale. Additionally, we pay on a weekly basis, so you’ll receive earnings for your hard work at the end of each work week.
What to expect.It is very possible for reps to do well right out of the gate, but success is not guaranteed. We are definitely not a “get-rich-quick” company and we take pride in our reps for being the hard-working and motivated individuals that they are.
Successful reps tend to share a few common traits: persistence, diligence, and commitment.
There is opportunity for reps to develop professional skills while also earning income. Check out some of the more inspiring success stories from our very own Vector Marketing reps:
After graduating high school, I was frantically searching for a summer job to help earn some money before I went off to college in the fall. I was offered the position at Vector Marketing as a sales representative that summer and at first was a little skeptical because I considered myself to be extremely introverted. However, after going through Cutco sales training and working with an outstanding team I wound up being the #3 representative in my office that summer, selling just under $20,000 of the Cutco product. I worked full-time with Vector during my summer vacations and the position allowed me to graduate from college debt-free (much to the excitement of my parents!)
I am 19 (so definitely young), but Vector Marketing has taught me professionalism that i will use for the rest of my life. Also, Vector’s managers have a genuine desire to want to help people. People pay so much money for mentors, but vector has some of the best mentors for free! They want to develop and help you succeed. The experience you get with vector will help you whether you’re a business major or an astronomy major.
Around the time of my birthday, I lost my job at the grocery store due to a buyout and I was not living at home at the time. I was pretty scared about where my next paycheck would come from because I didn’t have a whole lot of experience to get another job. The day after my birthday, my mother sends me an email with a picture attached. It happened to be a scan of a “mailer” that came to the house from my local office in Olympia, Washington offering summer work. We were both a little skeptical as it had what I thought was a high starting pay, $16 per appointment. I had never had a job in sales but I was confident that I could be good at anything if I put my mind to it. I felt a sense of hope that maybe things would be okay. Fast forward 10 months: I now live in Seattle and operate out of the Seattle Pilot Office for the Washington Division as a part time assistant manager and part time sales rep. I just reached my 20K promotion last month and I’m coming up on my FSM promotion, hoping to hit it during this SMC Push Period. A sincere thank you to everyone who has helped me so far, and good luck to any newcomer who may be reading this. What a great ride it has been so far, I cannot wait to see what the future holds!
