Great idea for business but not quite applicable for successs
Independent Business Owner (Former Employee) – Ann Arbor, MI – January 13, 2018
Amway presented us with the opportunity of knowing what it's like to own a personal business. They helped us create and manage our own website where we could sell our products. Though I admired the ambitious nature of the business. In the end the inconsistency in their business philosophy, partner support and most importantly results did not appeal to me. So As a young professional I thought it logical to look for new opportunities in order to advance my career.

I love the products and believed I could reach my goals but, its way too much investment and very little profit. Would have to travel and pay out of pocket for expenses and never saw any advancement in levels.

Everything is on your time. Residual income means that you get to have a steady income while not trading your time for dollars. I would recommend reading The Business of the 21st Century by Robert Kiyosaki before involving yourself in network marketing.
Associate (Current Employee) – Yonkers, NY – December 1, 2017
Going out and attempting to build a contact list in order to obtain consumers. I have learned that this job requires patience and a keen eye. The best part of the job is being able to continuing to learn about life and grow as an individual. However, the most difficult task is speaking to people because they might no be interested or intreged at times.
Discounts and a different perspective in life
Can't be taken likely and needs time and proper care
Mechanical Assembler III - Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Ada, MI – November 28, 2017
Management always feeding into getting the workers to fight against each other. Always taking one side and never finding the source of the issues and jumping to conclusions of their own. Treated very unfairly on a daily basis.
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Finance – November 20, 2017
Wasted a couple years in supply chain finance dealing with the most ignorantly incompetent set of fools imaginable. I wouldn’t recommend anyone who has career ambitions within finance even consider a job with this joke of a company. 1. Poor business model...even for a company in a scam industry 2. Unsustainable. Majority of sales from unstable markets that are on a serious decline 2. Phony culture...especially in finance 3. Lack of career options in finance within the GR area due to poor reputation of finance “professionals “ I have close friends at very large companies who laugh when they see a resume cross their desk that proudly announces they are have worked on Amway finance
It is a great environment and good workplace to learn the ways of network marketing. Would definitely recommend for those who are interested in any type of marketing and would like extra income on the side.
Discounted prices on their products
Only way you got paid was on the profit you made of products sold.
Order Puller (Former Employee) – Santa Fe Springs, CA – October 31, 2017
I gained a lot of experience as this was technically my first real stable job while balancing school. It was difficult because there were so many things that an individual needed to do and know. Although, everything was fast paced, it was still fun and I enjoyed working with my co-workers.

Machine Operator/Material Handler/skid loader (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – October 17, 2017
Over all it wasnt a bad place to work. I worked 10 hour shifts, 5a-3p mon-thursday and loved that schedual. Most coworkers where easy to get along with and shift managers where great but cant say the same for the plant manager who had apparently had many complaints on him over the years and amway never decided to take action. All in all i would recommend it for temp work but not as long term solution
Skid Loader (Former Employee) – Ada, MI – October 3, 2017
some days were slow other days were fast paced. it was a stressful environment yet it was a really clean factory that makes people like it. the management wasn't the best but it was ok. the hardest part of the job was dealing with all the stress that the people and the work put on you. the most enjoyable part was that the factory was really clean so I enjoyed going there.
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) – Ada, MI – October 2, 2017
This job started out well enough at first. I was caught up in the euphoria that was the on-boarding for my plant where a "new" type of plant structure was used that allowed employees to have more say in the trivial matters of the plant. However as time went on, more of the "old" began to rear it's ugly head. That, combined with our plant manager finding another job and the retirement of my boss, the plant further reverted to a more traditional plant which I fell out of love with.
Overall the benefits are great!
I would say management is about what you can expect at a manufacturing plant these days. Lots of talking behind backs as well as the typcial high school gossip.
