Great Products
Avon Sales Representative (Former Employee), Markham, ONJuly 17, 2012
Even though I had gone around to customers and told them about AVON's products to sell them, not only did it make me realize what I may need, but I also realized who else needs these products. With the amount of information I have with those products, I could probably sell more than I can imagine. The knowledge that you have with the products is what – more... makes sales. The hardest part of the job is to keep finding more customers to make sales. The enjoyable part is that AVON products keeps the customers satisfied. – less

Representative, PCP, and Leader (Current Employee), Windsor, ONApril 16, 2012
I work my own hours. I've learned a lot about managing my own business and preparing for taxes. I have the best District Sales Manager and Support person I could ever ask for. The hardest part of my job is to motivate my team members and get them as excited about selling and leadership as I am. I enjoy meeting new people and providing customer service.

Independent Sales Representative (Former Employee), Santa Maria, CAOctober 21, 2014
Pros: trips, new cars.
Cons: not making anything
I can honestly tell you Avon isn't a place for me. It was hard making money plus everyone i knew was selling Avon. So i never got any customers. They didn't really teach you how the business ran and what your suppose to do and how to make your money. I didn't enjoy anything about Avon. I'd rather buy Avon from someone else then to sell it.

Able to use my fashion and cosmetology skills to help people
Customer Service/Sales Associate (Current Employee), Birmingham, ALOctober 20, 2014
Pros: fashion advising
Cons: the work is mostly home-based.
As an Avon Representative, a typical day of work is pretty much staying very dedicated because it's basically my own business. Everyday I make phone calls to customers (new & old), keep myself informed on what's going on in Avon of course from business opportunities to what's new, when I'm out and about, I pass out Avon books, hand out my business cards – more... in order to gain new customers, advertise my business; such as wearing Avon products & leading people to my website. Upon receiving a shipment from Avon, I immediately bag my customers' orders in order to deliver them in a timely manner and take new orders.
I have learned that definitely I have a passion for fashion and I enjoy helping others when it comes to fashion and make-up. I am my own manager/boss, but the hardest part of my day is knowing that I have a college degree in education from one of the finest universities and not being able to put it to use unless I got a straight-out fashion degree. I feel that my degree and previous teaching experiences in education should lead me to an excellent opportunity of further helping people in fashion, such as managing a clothing store or teaching a fashion/or cosmetology (make-up) class. I really wish that a fashion company would notice my talent and ability to become some sort of fashion advisor to more people because when it comes to myself I feel very limited to Avon. I love Avon, but I feel limited because like I said earlier, I have a college degree.
The most enjoyable part of my day is providing customer service. I really love being very fashion forward from head-to-toe (stylish hair, perfect make-up, well coordinated outfit with stylish accessories & shoes, and polished nails (hand & feet). – less

A fun way of earning
Franchise Dealer (Current Employee), Major Jaldon Street, Zammbaonag CityOctober 20, 2014
Pros: purchase rebates
Cons: time
Being a franchise dealer in Avon Cosmetics, Inc is not really my regular work, it is only my side line wherein I can have an additional earning by influencing my target customers by advertising and promoting the products of Avon Cosmetics, Inc. through showing the brochures to them and eventually they will have their orders and I will personally purchase – more... the orders in the near Avon outlet. – less

Productive job role
Avon representative (Former Employee), SunderlandOctober 16, 2014
As an avon representative it requires hard work and must be willing to do this is your spare time as it is an at home job. This job helped improve my communication skills as it involved delivering the products to my customers and collecting their money. The management team were very friendly and provided me with advice and help when needed. The hardest – more... part of this job was putting in all of the orders for the products for my customers and products I needed such as brochures, brochure bag, delivery bags etc. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to provide my customers with their orders and being able to chat with my customers. – less

Avon Representative (Former Employee), Lowestoft, ENGOctober 15, 2014
Pros: representative catalogues full of deals
Cons: commision
delievering and collecting catalogues, getting to know my customers and their requirements, introducing them to new products and offers, providing product information, ordering stock and handling payments.

Hardest part of the job was working on commision, if you deliver all your catalogues and there are not many orders you will not get very much money – more... compared to the work you done.

Most enjoyable part of the job was talking to my customers when delievering the products also working in your own time. – less

Sales Woman (Current Employee), San Antonio, TXOctober 13, 2014
See my work history for my typical day at work, I learned that the customers I trust aren't always going to buy a lot of products every time I get a new catalog and that I don't want to sell to strangers because I don't know them therefor I don't trust them therefor I don't make as much money as I'd like, management is fine, co-workers don't exist you – more... work alone from home, hardest part of the job is being lonely and bored because I have no co-workers and the wear and tear on my car and how much faster my gas goes, most enjoyable part of the job is the money I get to keep and when we have meetings/conventions/luncheons and getting free products every now and then and getting to model items from the catalog at the conventions... – less

There is little balance when you work at Avon. Management is demanding but unwilling to supply what is needed to succeed. This is not a job but rather a LIFESTYLE

Great experience and met lots of great people.
Personal Sales Representative (Former Employee), Heath Springs, SCOctober 11, 2014
Pros: getting to see everyone.
Cons: didn't make much money.
I loved selling Avon products. Meeting new people, customers and other Avon Reps, was very rewarding. We had monthly meeting so we could all share ideas and keep morale high. The hardest part of the job was finding new customers. But, you just had to keep your business on your mind at all times and promote it every time you met a new person. So it wasn't – more... bad at all. The most enjoyable part of the job was on delivery days I got to see all my customers. It was so much fun keeping in touch with all of my customers. – less
