Great for stay at home moms

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
This job is great for stay at home moms. I started working here in the year 2011. In order to be successful in this job, you need to be out there prospecting for new customers to build your business and earn more.

Bon pour faire de l'argent de poche

Tu gagne entre 15% - 35% chaque vente. Depend de quel niveau tu est. C'est bon pour de l'argent de poche et c'est mieux si tu as plusieurs clients parce qu'il faut payer pour la livraison de 11,95 pour chaque commande.

Pros

rabais sur les produits

Cons

payer les frais de livraisons, les catalogues, échantillons.

TL is a bully nd Management is rotten

Team lead spend most of his time calling me names like "Annoying" and "hateful" even though I never spoke to any coworkers on the floor.Management is never available when you need them. Neither is the help desk. you're not allowed to use the washroom outside of your break times for more than 10 minutes a week. But you're also not allowed a day off if you're sick. they make it impossible to feel safe and the team leads often just appear over your shoulder with no warning. Their overall scoring basis is ridiculous and is the exact opposite of what your trainer teaches you. the salary is very low and you are forced to overtime every night because they are unable to keep enough employees on the floor.High turnover, not necessarily firings, but most agents quit two days after training ends and they go on the floor.

Pros

good discount on products

Cons

forced uncompensated overtime, Team lead is a bully, Management is ignorant

Equipo de trabajo dinamico y agradable.

Ser parte de esta compañía fue muy agradable ya que tengo una pasión enorme por el maquillaje y cosméticos. Fue un trabajo a tiempo parcial ya que seguía estudiando.

Don't think about working there long term

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

travailleuse

J'étais une travailleuse autonome, je fesais mon propre horaire de travail, cela me convenait en temps qu'étudiante à temps plein.

Amazing opportunity to have a positive impact on people's lives.

There are no words to describe the experience. It was a lifestyle rather than a job. The most enjoyable aspect of the job was seeing the impact your coaching and training can have on people. Observing people achieve things they never thought they could is humbling and I am forever changed by how people opened themselves and their lives to me.

good experience

I enjoyed my time working here but it was short as I was on contract. I have not worked here in some time and cannot vouch as to how the current work environment is.

Stressful and extremely demanding, the more you give the more they want

I was on the road prospecting and meeting with new and old representatives.....wasn't home very much....I learnt time management, autonomy prioritize The hardest part of my job was trying to balance home life and work.....Work won every time and my children were young at the time. What I love the most was interacting with people and meeting new people everyday.

Pros

Autonomy

Cons

work/ home balance

Hard Work, Long Hours, Team Building

Avon is hard work, you get what you put into it. If you do little you get little, etc. Long hours, travelling talking to people, trying to get and keep a customer base, reaching out to people & talking with people to join Avon as their own Avon Representative as me as their Unit Leader. Having to train, explain, navigate the website, place orders, process returns, hold webinars, one on one personal training, team building, customer service, etc.so much more

Pros

Make your own work schedule

Cons

Hardly any personal gain nor advancement
