Avon Representative (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – December 16, 2013
Pros: make your own hours, meet new people
Cons: not being able to sale products
I enjoyed working for myself because I got to meet new people talk with them and find out things they like. I would say my typical work day consisted walking from door to door trying to sale different products to men and women. The hardest part of the job would be that you did not make a lot of sales in one day. The best part about the job was to sale – more... to a customer and put a smile on their face. I have learned a great deal by having this job you get to make a customer happy and you get to enjoy seeing and meeting new people. – less

Pros: working toward a higher level, cheap insurance that you have to pay for
Cons: avon dont give you no benefits, dont get paid enough, 10% pay on 100.00 sell
Working with Avon is truly a challenge. A typical day would be out meeting new customer, calling customers placing their order on the computer and checking my back office.Making payments for their orders on computer,. Advertising Avon on website. Collecting money for orders and delivering. Also taking order over the phone and in person. What I have – more... learn is how to navigate from one page to another, emailing customers, familiarizing, my self with the computer how to copy/paste, open up a PDF, open up several of browser, and to create jobs for people threw Avon. I manage the orders that I have place, separate orders , and I deliver. I talk to head leader about ways to enhance the sell, other ways to move the products and how successful it has been. The hardest part of the job is finding steady customers, driving all over town to get orders and deliver them, making enough money to pay my bills and to keep gas in my car. You have to pay for your Avon books, all cologne ,par-fume, make-up sample you order for your customers, and pay for shipping products. The most enjoyable part is making sure my customer is happy and satisfied with their product. I enjoy when I can get orders over the phone, and I can place the order in a timely manner. – less

Independent Sales Representative (Current Employee), Gainesville, Ga – December 4, 2013
Pros: flexibility, rewarding, freedom, meet lots of great new people
Cons: salary, no benefits, no job security, daily travel expenses
With AVON you set your own schedule! I typically try to go out and meet at least 3 new possible customers everyday. I have a wonderful up-line willing to help with anything as well as the support of AVON customer care that can help with problems and questions. I have to stay disciplined to go out and build my business because there is no one standing – more... over you reminding you of all the things you have to do. The hardest part of the job is to get customers to place regular orders. They tend to order then they will not order again for several weeks. I have to offer promotions to help boost sales. The most enjoyable part of this job is the freedom to do my own thing as well as meeting lots of new and different people daily. I have a rewarding feeling inside when I know I was able to help someone feel better about themselves! – less
