Horarios Flexibles
Representante de Ventas (Former Employee), Caguas, PRMarch 25, 2015
Pros: Productos gratis de parte de Avon
Cons: Cobraban extra por productos que no fueron pedidos. (no piden permiso para enviartelos)
Es un trabajo un poco dificil ya que es buscando clientes diferentes cada dia para convencerlos y compren de los productos. Aprendi que hay que ser una persona consistente para este tipo de trabajo.En parte era comodo ya que el tiempo de trabajo es elegible. Lo dificil era cobrarle a los clientes ya que algunos no tienen el dinero a tiempo y tendrias que pagar de lo que has Ganado.. Lo mas que disfrutaba eran las entregas de productos a los clientes. Se siente bien verlos satisfechos

I think that working in Avon was very fun and challenging. You get to meet different people, and build relationships with them. You have a lot of flexibility, you can come up with different ways to sell your products. You handled customer concerns and returns.

A day of a Sales Leader
Sales Manager (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOMarch 19, 2015
Pros: discount on products, freedom to set hours, unlimited earnings
Cons: limited mobility, meeting demands of others, staying financially a float
A typical day started with me getting prepare for it. I organize my tools and prepared what I was going to say to my customers. I learned to really see people and not to be afraid to talk to them and share opportunities with them regarding my business. Working on a team help me to learn from others, sharpen my skills, and to share my experiences. The difficult part of my job was to deliver product's to customers. The most enjoyable was for me to do a good job and have customer remember me later!

Avon Representative (Current Employee), El Mirage, AZMarch 15, 2015
The hardest part of the job was trying to find costumers that wanted anything with avon. A lot of people did not want to get involved due to constant emails and the constant bugging of the representative.

Challenging Place to Work
Finance Manager (Former Employee), New York, NYMarch 11, 2015
This is a challenging place to work and advance. The organization is not good at developing talent from within. Recently new management replaced most of the direct selling talent with talent from retail and its not clear whether management is aligned on what to do next to save the company.

High Energy Environment
Freelance Video Editor/Assistant Photographer (Former Employee), New York, NYMarch 6, 2015
Pros: environment
Cons: no down time
The building was beyond stunning and the people were very friendly. The break kitchen was open and had a nice selection of coffee or tea, whatever you needed as a pick me up to get through the day. I learned an immense amount of information from the Creative Director I worked under. He was both professional and inspiring to work for, every morning we would talk for a few minutes before getting to the daily tasks. The most approachable boss I have ever worked for in my entire life. My co-workers were all very sharp as well as intuitive. Days there went very quick and although the environment was fast paced, it was nothing less than extremely enjoyable every day.

District Sales Manager
District Sales Manager (Current Employee), Salt Lake City, UTMarch 5, 2015
Pros: company car, hours, flexibility
Cons: no advancement opportunity, unrealistic business plan, kpi's are changing year to year
The company changes direction every few months. Management changes so quickly it is hard to stay consistent with constant change of job description. Ultimately you are a recruiter and treated like a low line employee. There is no advancement opportunities, management have never held your position and little to no training.

The best part is how the job is different from day to day and thriving to exceed your KPI's on your own. Every boss can have a different attitude of how you should be doing your job so it can change from person to person.

Fun place and Amazing people
Sales Executive (Current Employee), Beckley, WVMarch 4, 2015
Pros: work on your own time
This is very relaxed company. A normal day just consist of going out and selling AVON and contacting your customers. You do not have a hectic scheduled so you can work whenever its convenient for you. Normally you get anywhere from 20%-50% of your clients money back so you can spend it on your orders or for personal use. Management and co-workers are so nice and are willing to help you with any questions you may have.
