Selling Avon is a fun job to earn extra income. They do give you discounts, first to buy new items that are coming out at a discount, but you tend to spend more than you earn with them because there deals are so good.
Independent Consultant (Current Employee) – Streamwood, IL – April 17, 2017
I sell at presidents club level and I am currently a Silver Ambassador in leadership. I only work 2 to 4 hours a week. I am a stay at home mom so taking care of my 2 1/2 year old daughter is top priority. In December 2016 I received a $2000 leadership bonus which was great for Christmas time. I typically earn between $600 and $1000 a month (not including leadership bonuses). Every campaign I add at least one team member and I give myself a raise. I am happy moving slow and steady, if you put in the hours selling business to business and fundraising you can make a lot of money. If you spend 40 hours a week you will grow your business quickly. I would not have any spending money if it was not for my Avon business. This is also a great business to help save money for college, a dream vacation, and put money away for retirement. I love the boss life :) For more info visit www.GetYourStarterKit.com
Work your own hours, great bonuses available to earn, as well as trips and other incentives, free online store, up to 40% commission to start.
With Avon, you're your own Boss. That can be good or bad depending on the type of person you are. However, you can be on other leaders teams as well. Avon is very competitive and is great for someone who needs flexible hours and can manage time and money well. I wish I would've been able to interact with the company managers more but time is money. Let's face it, we all need money.
Making calls daily through referrals, family & friends, and established customers. Product demos, sales and delivery bi-weekly or as needed by customers. This was a self management job that required me to step out of myself and really get to know and serve others.
I acquired a vast amount of knowledge in my career at Avon. I was given opportunity for growth with mentor ship from current Supervisors /Managers which has provided me with the tools I have today. I learned leadership, development, production, customer service, quality, analytics, and logistics. The hardest part of my job with leaving all the great Associates and the most enjoyable part of the job was the hands on experience I received as well as all of the opportunities that were provided to me.
It is a good company for someone who wants to put a lot of time and effort into it. The benefits that you gain are guaranteed by how hard you work at it and how far you move up in sales. I enjoyed the time I worked for them.
create your own schedule, work from home, good products
it's a lot of work, marketing can take a lot of time

Good people, good purpose, but issues at the leadership level keep it from progressing
Executive Director (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – April 6, 2017
People are nice and the company has a great purpose and mission. It is very dynamic and there are many projects to be involved with. There were a lot of enjoyable aspects to working there. That said, the company is very inward looking, so its strategy is shortsighted and more importantly, management does not establish a clear set of priorities (including providing clarity on what the company is not going to do or not going to invest in). Also, given the constant cost cutting there was very little for career advancement and development.
Nice people, interesting projects, great purposeful company
Leadership is rarely aligned; making it unclear what is the direction of the company.

working with Avon taught me responsibility and customer service skills. Customer service is very important in every work setting . Meeting new people, getting great products, learning about and showing off new items we sell are all part of having great customer service skills .
