Did I mention that YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR YOUR GAS AS WELL??? The managers call your house all day long making sure that you are setting up appointments and also require that you come into the office once a week to try and make appointments, this time in the office is also UNPAID. It is borderling harassment if you ask me. You must also put your family and friends through hell by making them sit there and watch your presentation and you feel even worse when they buy a set out of pity and it costs them 700+ dollars for stupid knives. After you give them a demonstration you ask them for names of people to give the demonstration to in the future, and most people are very reluctant to give you names, so you are basically left BEGGING them for names. I cant count how many times I have received "fake" names because the people were so against giving you contacts. If you dont get contacts, you dont get demonstrations, without demonstrations you make no sales, and make zero money.
The worst thing of all is the embarrassment you feel on the phone when you call some person you dont know and some old man YELLS at you and says he will report you to the police as a telemarketer and for going door to door. I was made a training manager, and was required to train others how to sell the knives on live demonstrations and figured this was my big break, I was wrong. You hold the manager position but get paid no better and you are also required to be in the office everyday and you are unpaid for these hours as well. My whole family also made jokes about the scam company I worked for and belittled me constantly because from day one my parents told me it was a scam. They (cutco) essentially brainwash you and make you memorize responses for customers who decline a presentation. Who the hell wants to have some unknown teenage boy with a set of knives into your house? Sound normal to you? As for the knives, they are great and I have no complaints with them, my problem lies with the company and the treatment of the employees. My story is all true, and you cant debate the facts.
