the manager do the followup
and the team is great you meet at the meetings or at the products presentations
the hardest part is recruding new sales representatives under yourself
the enjoyable part is proping the brochures and discribing the products to the customer.

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.

Loved working for avon as i enjoyed the independence. All staff where friendly and i felt like i could just ring any manager if i was in need of help. I felt comfortable doing the job independently but did not have a lot of customers.

Great relationships, work/life balance and benefits package
IT Project Manager, Quality Assurance (Former Employee), Rye, NYSeptember 8, 2014
I've made great life-long relationships at Avon.

The work/life balance and high-speed remote connections made it possible for me to attend to family activities before 6pm and allow me to pickup work where I left off later that night at home.

Avon sponsored the yearly Americares homefront project which I participated in which, not only helped people – more... in need, but helped with internal networking and building comradery with fellow Avon colleagues. – less

Poor commission
Avon Representative (Former Employee), Birmingham, ENGSeptember 7, 2014
Working for Avon is great to fit around your lifestyle but as a full time student it was hard as I could not find a part time job, so I took up Avon to help pay for my college equipment, but I had to at least sell up to £80 worth of goods before making £1 for myself.

Amazing
Avon Representative (Current Employee), Leeds, ENGSeptember 6, 2014
Pros: work from home in my own time.
Cons: not in a stable environment.
I work for Avon in my spare time and it is commission based. It is helping me to earn my own pocket money on the side. I work from home and it doesn't take up a lot of time. I just have to distribute brochures to new and present costumers and take their orders, once I have collected orders I then send them over the website to the distributors and they – more... send the goods to me. Once I have the goods in my possession then I have to sort them out and package them for each individual costumers. On delivery I collect the correct money then the company will tell me how much I have to send to them and how much I can keep for myself, the money that I keep myself is my wage which could vary from £20+. I have learned by doing this job to be independent as I am working alone and also how to manage money. I don't find anything hard about this job and I find it highly enjoyable. – less
