NPD&E Engineering and Development
Packaging Engineer NPD&E Global Fragrance (Former Employee), New York, NYApril 24, 2015
Pros: location. global exposure
Cons: disorganizaton, apathy of employees and constant employee turnover
Daily tasks involved preparation of designs, prototypes and supplier follow up for feasibility; Project management duties; Daily interaction with Global Partners in Europe/Middle East/Asia and South America; Management is removed from immediate problems due to overwhelming workload so one must act decisively and promptly to aid global regions to make correct changes and/or troubleshoot packaging problems that arise. Most challenging part of the position is working with extremely limited budget which did not allow as many line trials as would avoid future problems during production. Difficult to deal with constant personnel changes and shifting company directives. Most enjoyable part of the position was interaction and management of Global Engineering counterparts as well as working with products I love.

Extra income
Sales Representative (Current Employee), Tulare, CAApril 17, 2015
Pros: Extra Income
Cons: Alot of people sell Avon
Avon has given my the opportunity to bring in income while staying home with my son. Though it can take quite a while to start up and make money off of, it takes money to make it right? They are there to help when you need it and answer all questions effectively. I personally don't make a lot off of it yet but every little bit helps and the more you put in the more you get out. I wouldn't recommend it to support your family solely off of, but a little spending money never hurts. Plus, I get to do what I love everyday, talk to and meet new people!

Currently going through an organizational turnaround and lots of ambiguity about the future. Work environment can therefore be challenging, yet rewarding when you see changes implemented.

Production Worker (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAApril 8, 2015
The hardest part about working at Avon was managing the schedules and supplies to make sure that there was enough shipments to send out. Although that was the hardest part it taught me how to manage and organize schedules.

My Avon Business
Independent Avon Sales Representative PT (Current Employee), Newport News, VAApril 3, 2015
Pros: All done on my time
Cons: Commission only
Very demanding job - basically self-employment. The more time and hours that I put in promoting the Avon name, products, and purchasing of products, brochures, business cards, and samples, the more I try to get others to purchase the Avon products. I also try to get other to sign up under me to sell Avon on their own which is known as Leadership. The hardest part is getting and maintaining customers every two weeks. Commission based only - but doesn't seem like enough to support a family just a fun job for extra money purposes. I just enjoy doing it.

fun work enviroment, own boss
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Puerto RicoApril 1, 2015
Being a representative with avon helped me develop exceptional customer service skills. I worked my own hours and was my own boss. Also had the opportunity to meet new people and also recruit a few of them. The hardest part of being a avon rep was the cold calling and that sometimes there was just too many reps in the area.

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
