sales and customer service
Independent Sales Representative (Current Employee), Pasadena, CASeptember 29, 2014
Pros: being able to make a customer happy and them coming back again
Cons: when a customer is disappointed and i have to reach into my bag of smiles to fix it.
Well for the most part Avon has been an awesome company. I have noticed some changes do to them trying to bring the company up again. I worked for Avon more than once and in that time it varied from time to time such as marketing, orders, and products, We also had district offices where we held meetings and borrowed demonstration products to hold sales – more... parties. Our offices have closed do to lack of funds. We still have district managers and so far they have been awesome to work with. They hold rallies in different cities so they never stay in one place. Recruiting is still on the rise which is a good thing. My pet peeve is that on some of the products they have been selling is not the best quality.I've also had customers who are skeptical because of a bad experience with a product. Such as toys, jewelry, and holiday items. We have to work harder at our commissions now because they raised the percentage you have to sell to make a good commission. – less

Excellent Job Experience in Management, enjoyed Traveling
District Sales Manager (Former Employee), Stockton, CASeptember 21, 2014
Pros: excellent health benefits, dental & vision plan, opportunity for travel, great retirement plan
Cons: work long hours and sometimes missed family occasions
Wonderful experience in development of my business career, both personal and business development. Very challenging to constantly meet demands of corporate office. The company provided many sales opportunities and provided excellent venues for winning trips. Enjoyed a few trips to the Bahamas and Mexico and Key West.
Enjoyed working with many independent – more... sales contractors and helping them grow in developing their business and also enjoyed working with a team of other District Supervisors. – less

Self motivation and organizational skills are a must
Independent Sales Representative (Current Employee), Nation wideSeptember 18, 2014
Pros: flexible and no direct supervision
Cons: you will have to spend money to make money
This job requires expenses to make money as well as a level of self motivation that many will not have. If you are willing to put int the time and initial expense you can make money. A large base of friends and other avenue for sales is a huge plus.

Avon has been around for years
Sales Agent (Former Employee), DeWitt, MISeptember 16, 2014
Pros: good product offers
Cons: not worth getting in a mlm, no help from uplines or support from district...
I remember my grand mother getting Avon since I was little. When I didn't have a job, I decided to give it a shot. It's definitely a MLM company. After your 4 campaigns you make a percent based on your sales. Sometimes you make (if not majority) nothing. I had given up on Avon because I was putting more out than I was making in return. I even tried – more... doing local events and hated to compete against other avon reps who were trying to make their business blossom. It was extremely rough. My upper leadership was not really helpful what so ever. I had to learn on my own and even got into leadership and tried getting people below me to make money. That never happened or they didn't last. It was ridiculous. – less

Independent Sales Representative (Former Employee), Bassett, VASeptember 16, 2014
Pros: flexible with the time
Cons: spending my money on other peoples orders
Would be given a new Avon books every two weeks. Most of my customers were at Startek when they laid people off, I didn't have anymore clientele. I would pass out book and place order once a week online. Sometimes people would not pay and the money would have to come out of my pocket. However, my manager was awesome he was very understanding of every – more... circumstance I approached him with. – less

Great relationships, work/life balance and benefits package
IT Project Manager, Quality Assurance (Former Employee), Rye, NYSeptember 8, 2014
I've made great life-long relationships at Avon.

The work/life balance and high-speed remote connections made it possible for me to attend to family activities before 6pm and allow me to pickup work where I left off later that night at home.

Avon sponsored the yearly Americares homefront project which I participated in which, not only helped people – more... in need, but helped with internal networking and building comradery with fellow Avon colleagues. – less

Awesome self-employment opportunity
Independent Sales Representative (Current Employee), Simi Valley, CASeptember 1, 2014
Pros: create your own schedule. community support.
Cons: no company-provided benefits. commission-based income.
Avon is different than working at your typical company. You work at your own pace, meeting new people along the way.

It gives me the opportunity to put myself out there, trying to acquiring new clients. have to have a positive attitude, an outgoing personality.

District management is great support if you have any questions. at monthly meetings, you – more... can meet fellow reps and exchange stories for obtaining customers, increasing sales. there is also a community forum for reps outside your district -- also available to help with questions and supports. – less
