Fun while it lasted

It was fun while i was working at it. Got a lot of district managers in my time there and I don't know if that's normal or not. Enjoyed doing it and working certain events with products until they changed some of their systems and I left because of that.

Pros

meeting new people

Cons

Required selling amouts, hard to make a profit

Avon Review

Very Corporate, the position is 24/7 it Never seems to end, the employee's are dedicated, yet not valued. The representative's are what makes it worth while

Pros

Reps, incentive's for reps, rep comp plan

Cons

Long hours, not valued, micro managing

Good for experience, not carrer

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

travail agréable

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

Great company, excellent products

Working with 400+ independent representatives was challenging and rewarding. Opening the first BC retail store was also challenging and rewarding. With Avon being a global country, changing upper management and direction there were challenges.

Home based business allows flexibility

There are many perks with being your own boss. Avon allows this for any individual looking to add extra income into their lifestyle. The more you put into your business, the more benefits you will reap.

Pros

Work from home

Cons

Income is based on how much your customers purchase

It didn't last that long.

Avon - and places like Avon seem to be for people who are rich and need something to do. As someone without money, I could not do Avon for a long time.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Money

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
