Hello. Is this community still active? My name is Diana, and I started working at Vector this June. I've been looking for some way to meet other sales reps via the web. I was surprised VectorConnect didn't provide some sort of directory so that students could look up the other reps who attend their school. If that makes any sense at all.
I'm an English Literature major at the University of Southern California. FIGHT ON, TROJANS! It's my second year. I work at Vector so I can pay off my student loans because USC isn't cheap at all.
I hail from the Long Beach pilot office. Southland divison, Western region. I'm a Senior Field Sales Manager, as well as a member of the division elite key staff. Whatever that means. Honestly, I still feel like a Cutco newbie. I just started my sixth month as a rep. The promotions or whatever are very confusing, and I'd rather not think too much about them.
I guess I should give you my stats, too. I'm at $85K in career sales, and I'm currently trying to finish as a top ten All-American this fall campaign. This summer, I finished at number four... a few hundred dollars more than whatever Louis Gale (number five) ended up with. Louis Gale is the crazy bastard from the Santa Monica office who can pull a $10K week. Three weeks in a row. That's insane, don't you think?
Anyway, Louis and I have been battling it out all summer long. It's a rivalry that will continue for the rest of our lives, seems like.
In my interview, I told the manager I thought the whole thing sounded like one huge scam. He hired me anyway. I've read through a couple websites about the supposed Vector scam, and I'd be more than happy to discuss this with another human being.
By the way, I'm obsessed with Fight Club (the movie and the book) because I adore Chuck Palahniuk. I devour books by the dozen (hello, English major) and write too much. If anyone here has read Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut, I'd love to talk about that too. I play classical guitar, and I drive too fast. I'm addicted to coffee.
So if anyone's still alive, feel free to reply to this post or send me an email.
