    I had a job with them for a week and then quit. I had never heard of a pyramid scheme before them.

    Now I'm curious if anyone has ever heard of it or done it.

    I've never heard of this particular pyramid scam. The only one I'm well aware of is Quixtar, which used to have a different name.

    Lol, so they are still at it. I "worked" for cutco/vector once, back in 2000. Did the job for about a month, THEN realized that is was a scam. Although I did get a nice set of kitchen knives outa it lol.

    I think it was called Amway. My cousin used to work for them and persuaded my mom and aunt to buy into it. Their products were sorta lame and unimpressive.icon_rolleyes.gif

    Yup, I worked for them one summer. I did get a good set of knives that I still cook with today, and I actually made a good amount of money. But I hate sales. I mainly did it to see what the sales workforce was like. I knew I'd hate it, and I did, but I'm glad I did it. Now I know what bad job really means- makes me appreciate my job more now.

    I detest multilevel marketing. It turns friends into obnoxious salesdroids, and the products are always hyped up to extremes, far beyond their less impressive reality. I've also noticed that similar competitive products sold through standard retail channels always cost significantly less than the MLM products; paying all those levels of upline adds a lot to the price.

    Nice to know I'm not the only one.
    One of my friend's parents called it a sort of "rite of passage" for college.

    A friend of mine was in a pyramid scheme. But he was in in it for different reasons, he just wanted to network with people and didn't care about the "product" they were selling. icon_lol.gif

    Another big pyramid scheme is Prepaid Legal. Basically, anyone selling a prepaid service. Even phone cards! If someone approaches you talks about 'opportunity' and 'income potential', you should walk away.

    its a scam. i hate the way they do business.

    they recruit a lot at my university (since the employees are mainly students), and they advertise it as a part-time job in marketing making up to $14 an hour (which is a total lie because they don't pay by the hour)

    i think they've even gone as far as calling it an internship.

    I worked for them for like a month as well. The product is good, but it's damn near impossible to sell them unless you just happen to know a lot of rich people because they're just so expensive. None of my friends or friends of the family could afford to buy from me. And I don't know about the other guys' experience, but the office my branch was based out of was so trashy. You'd think they could spring for some nicer digs...but I guess that's part of the scheme, save the money for the ones at the top.
