Employment For Students

Courtney Said:

Has anyone worked for Vector? its a company that offers employment for students. is it a good job?

We Answered:

I worked there last summer and I quit after 1 month. Why? First of all, when you first hear of Vector, you have no clue what to expect until you get there for the job interview. YOU HAVE TO SELL KNIVES!!! Now listen here, if you know people and they know people that are willing to pay over $500 for a set of knives, take the job. You'll get good commission. If you don't know anyone like that or you'll feel bad for the people you know wasting their money, don't take this job.

A really bad thing about this job is that the manager and the assistants won't stop bugging you. Even though the job is "laid back", you still have to attend weekly meetings, which for me, was 20 minutes from my house. They also expect you to call them EVERY SINGLE DAY and if you don't call them, guess what? They will call your cell phone first and if you don't answer that, they're going to call your house phone!! Talk about loss of privacy.

And to top it all off, I swear that their whole jibe about getting 17.25 per appointment is total bull. In my month of working there, I saw about 15 people and had 4 sales. That means 4 sales, I get commission and 11 times, I should've gotten 17.25. Guess what? I only got 17.25 for 5 of the appointments. And to tell you the truth, I didn't find out until after I quit and I didn't even bother to ask for it.

Vector is the biggest scam in history. Don't take the job!

Erik Said:

A student placement center has requests from five students for interviews regarding employment with a particul?

We Answered:

The probability that either of two mutually exclusive events occurs is found by adding the individual probabilities. The probability that the selected students have the same major is the probability that both are math majors, plus the probability that both are statistics majors.

The probability of two events both occuring is the product of the probabilities of event 1 occuring and of event 2 occuring given that event 1 occured.


The probability of the first student selected being a math major is 2/5
Given that, the probability of the second student selected also being a math major is 1/4
Therefore the probability that the two students are both math majors is 2/20 = 1/10.
Do the same calculation for statistics majors. Add the results together.
