Flexible Part-Time Work
A successful candidate has a positive attitude, enjoys interacting with other people, and is able to handle himself or herself in a professional manner. Comprehensive training is provided, so prior experience is not necessary. Successful candidates can start part-time and move to full-time in the summer after exams.
Vector Marketing is the sole distributor of Cutco Cutlery throughout Canada and the U.S. Our entry-level sales representatives work directly with potential customers through one-on-one, in-home appointments. Representatives have several common responsibilities:
- Setting appointments with potential customers through personal contacts and referrals.
- Presenting Cutco products to prospective customers and writing up customer orders.
- Assisting existing customers with service requests.
- Reviewing personal performance with their manager through meetings and over the phone.
- Attending advanced training sessions and optional conferences to increase knowledge and productivity.
- We also offer $23,800 in scholarships annually based on performance.
Representatives are paid weekly. We offer a competitive base pay, with the opportunity to earn more based on sales performance. The base pay is determined by number of presentations completed, regardless of whether or not a sale is made. Appointments are designed to take approximately one hour.
We are looking to expand our management staff, and top performers who desire more experience may be able to take advantage of our Assistant and Branch Management program.
"Vector provides students with a great opportunity to develop skills considered essential in today's competitive workplace. For example, students develop self-confidence, presentation skills and a strong work ethic, and perhaps just as important, students learn these skills in a fun, entrepreneurial and supportive environment."
Dr. Derek Hassay-University of Calgary
"I would have never guessed that I would love this job as much as I do. I have grown so much as an individual while working with Vector and I am beyond excited to see where I am years from now. Working for Vector not only pushes me to be the best version of myself but it also pushes me to work hard and accomplish if not exceed my goals. The constant support and encouragement from the Vector team is absolutely mind-blowing. There are not too many jobs out there where not only are you acknowledged for your hard work, but you are also constantly being backed up by this amazing support system within the company."

"Vector has given me so many great opportunities to improve my communication skills, manage my time efficiently, and discover strengths I never even knew I had. Vector has really become almost like a second home to me. As a business student, the skills and experience I have gained will definitely aid me in the future for whatever career I consider. I honestly feel that after going through the experience that Vector has given me, I can write my own ticket."
