Time Management and Productive with a positive attitude

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

Very beneficial for people who likes to work a lot.

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.

Fun if in the right atmosphere

I actually really liked working for them. Unfortunately customers really like being able to buy immediately and the stock levels I couldn't keep up with. The hardest part of working for them was needing to make orders every 2 weeks with the small customer base I had.

Productive and Fun work environment

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.

Leader

You have to be able to approach people to make a sale . Sometime even door to door , or just drop the catalog at the door. If you are shy this job is not for you.

Choose your own hours/customer service experience

It was interesting to try out a sales job that you get to choose your own hours and build your own client base. I enjoyed trying this out for a bit and would enjoy more customer service jobs in the future

self directed cosmetic company

typical day at work involved beauty makeovers and manicures, product demonstrations, some bridal groups, driving long distances, and good knowledge of skincare. I learned a great deal about sales in this job and self-management. The workplace culture is affable and people generally enjoy the demonstrations and participate and ask many questions. The most difficult part of the job is recruiting. The most enjoyable part of the job is being independent.

Pros

self directed independent

Cons

salary fluctuations

I love working with Avon

My customers all ways get their orders on time it is a friendly atmosphere and a great company to work for. A typical work day for me is talking to my customers, filling their orders online, and keeping them happy. I learned sales experience, customers service skills, and I learned how to use their system. Excellent management. There is nothing hard about this job. Selling product is the most enjoyable part of the job.

Pros

meet new customers

Cons

not enough hours

Not as i expected

Thought it was a good job, but it's actually not. very boring and the pay is the taxes you collect from the products you have sold.
