It is beneficial for people who want to start learning how to run a business and hands on experience but not for people who want to earn money in any way. Its for people who has just a new experience towards getting started in a job marketplace.

The typical day at work was dealing with customers explaining the quality of the products like perfumes, make up, jewelries, clothes, shoes etc. I learned that patience, and communications is very important when dealing with your clients or customers. Time management is important especially when you deliver the products to the customers house to house. I work in my home that helped me very comfortable and easy to manage my time. The hardest part of the job when you made mistakes to the order or the customer is not satisfied and want to return the product. Most enjoyable part of my job when I sold over 22,000 in 12 months that's when I rewarded for 40% commission in every product.
Pros
40% commission
Cons
long hours

Poor upper management. Pull promotions from under you with false excuse. Waste of time. 60% of managers were on stress leave. Like to keep the ones who know little cause they are Fear based management.

Excellent company to learn how to use social media and net-working from. The whole process of work is leadership and building/connecting with others, in the comfort of your own home.

you have to have an extremely strong Code of ethics, they have none. Every ones’ favourite saying was “the company for woman now shut up and bend over”.

Don't work here if you value your self-esteem. Employees are dispensable. They forfitted yearly salary increase last year. No one recieved a "cost of living" increase. You do what you're told or you have a meeting to let you know if otherwise !!!
Save yourself time and apply anywhere else,

Horrible management at the forefront of the business, unwilling to take advice from people with industry experience and take their hardest workers for granted. The entire business structure feeds and preys on the weak.

A typical day at work is making calls to clients and going out into the field and greeting potential clients. Going through the brochure with them before they brought it home to advertise the product better.

Poor management.
The training offered by head office was nothing short of brainwashing, a lobotomy in Avon culture if you will.

Looking back, the words "legalized cult" come to mind when I think: AVON.

Still can't believe I lasted a month before I called it quits.
Pros
Company car, free trip to Montreal, gas card
Cons
Avon

Avon is unfortunately a company in decline therefore many people are losing their job.
The commissions structure is bad and targets are impossible to achieve.

Too much focus on recruiting new rep.

Can be a good work experience but on a short term basis only.
Pros
Great discount on products, great benefits, good salary
Cons
Commissions structure is bad, management isn't good, company in decline

No day was ever the same, cold calling and recruiting were a large part of the job as well as following up on existing sales representatives. The hardest part of the job was the constant recruitment needed
Pros
company car
Cons
long hours
