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.

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.

Culture is not great, the hardest part of the job is reaching representatives to actually offer training during 9 to 5. Most people are available in the evening and constantly changing their appointments with you.
Pros
Nice office cubical
Cons
poor management

J'ai appris à travaillé en équipe je travaillais de 7.15 à 3.15 je rentrais les commandes des représentantes sur internet c'était des gens qui ne savait pas comment faire sur internet . J'ai aimé travaillé pour ses gens ils m'ont appris beaucoup.

Kind people and nice place to work. Management is not up to speed with modern times. Very sales oriented company. Perks are the products Avon sells as well as the discounts employees receive.
Pros
Great discounts on items sold
Cons
Management is very sales oriented

I learned what it takes to be a sales person. I also learned how to recruit and be part of the managerial team. Theory and practice is not always the same. I learned a lot about myself, on what I am capable of doing and enjoying learning. The hardest part of my job was getting the sales. I had all of the theory done packed but the numbers were not to my satisfaction. I enjoyed setting up and doing the sales meetings in both English and French. I loved showing new recruits the ropes and encouraging them and helping them along their journey.
Pros
It's all up to you. You are your own boss.
Cons
Although I loved the job, it was not paying the bills.

Working at Avon provides the opportunity to test your time management skills as year over year it is transforming into a VERY lean organization. Execution of tasks and projects in due time is challenged by technical limitations as the company does not invest in improving the technological platform.
Pros
Dynamic work environment with a go ahead mentality
Cons
Contradicted by outdated systems.

Cost cutting environment, good for building experience. Revenue decline, so no room to move up, and management seems to be content with status quo. Very frustrating when new ideas are pitched, since no money to update the model or changes in way we operate.
Pros
Great coworkers, Very positive environment
Cons
Slow moving management, company in decline

Brochures (√©tampage et distribution),prise de commandes, factures, emballage des commandes et livraisons. J'ai beaucoup appris dans ce domaine. D√©velopper une client√®le, calculer les pourcentages et les profits, le service √† la client√®le et la pers√©v√©rance, car cela demande du temps et de la pers√©v√©rance pour d√©velopper une client√®le. Beaucoup de porte √† porte pour se pr√©senter et donner des √©chantillons ainsi que des catalogues, se faire conna√ģtre. En ce qui concerne la g√©rance, les g√©rantes sont toujours l√† pour nous aider en cas de besoin. Il y a les r√©unions qu'elles nous offres, sans obligation mais auxquelles il est bon d'assister et qui nous donne des trucs de ventes. Je dirais que globalement, tout est agr√©able dans cet emploi, sauf deux choses. Passez les catalogues en plein hiver lorsqu'il fait tr√®s froid, ce n'est pas tr√®s agr√©able. La deuxi√®me chose, c'est le salaire. Il faudrait vraiment faire √©norm√©ment de ventes pour esp√©rer faire un bon salaire et pourtant j'ai beaucoup de clientes mais cela n'est pas suffisant. Pour ce qui est du reste, tout est vraiment bien. C'est un travail agr√©able.
Pros
La majorité de l'ensemble
Cons
Le salaire et passer les catalogues en hiver
