Avon Representative (Former Employee) – Goshen, IN – February 10, 2016
I liked working Independently. Looking for potential sales; friends neighbors, church. Often times went to door to door. Calling customers and receiving calls. Entering orders on-ling. When I received products delivered them to customers and received payments. Handed customer the next Avon book for more sales. The hardest part of job is parking in one spot then going door to door then had to go back to where I had the car parked
Overall a nice place to work at, and usually a fun time. Nice coworkers, and understanding management who work around your schedule. The best part of the job is how great the employees and managers are.
Very flexible work schedual, Many excelent events in differents Hotel and Great Places
To offer the best customer service to my customers (Current Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA 23455 – April 3, 2016
As an AVON rep, I am an independent beauty consultant. I work my own hours and I seek out my customers. The pay varies upon sales, which include but are not limited to customer purchases. I learned how to open up towards strangers more. I enjoy meeting new people and telling them about AVON products and prices.
You are your own boss
Your pay depends on your willingness to do the footwork.
Senior IT Analyst (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – March 6, 2016
Avon was a great company to work for, however it was a business model that did not keep up with the times. I loved my coworkers and still converse with them frequently. Keeping the plant running was quite the challenge however working closely with the engineering department was beneficial and kept things running smoothly.
The company treated their employees well.
Company business plan was outdated, as well as their hardware.
Salesperson (Current Employee) – California – June 27, 2016
I love being an Avon Representative, although I didn't have much time to sell one on one with my customers due to my extensive class schedule. It is an awesome business to work for and I love the products and conversing with various customers.
Free samples, products, and sometimes lunches at the Representative meetings.
This is a good job to work if you are looking to advance in your entrepreneur skills and you like working for your self and with customers. This is commission based and does require you to go and get sales.
Working for yourself, meeting other sales consultations, awards, recruiting new people
This is not a stable payed position, you have to give a certain percentage of your sales to Avon.
Senior Manager, Sales Operations and Analytics (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 2, 2015
Though challenging these past several years, the core business and purpose remains the same, support women's independence, empower them to own their own business and be their own boss! There has always been great camaraderie among co-workers and one mission- driving toward the success of our Representatives. One of the most enjoyable moments is attending a recognition event where these individuals are brought on stage and tell their story of how their lives have been changed by this company and their own efforts!

District Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 25, 2016
I was able to learn everything about direct sales and leadership.The most fulfilling part of the job was to give the representatives the opportunity to grow and be financial secure .You always can count on your superiors to guide you.Hardest part the long hours on the field
Working with adults to become more independent and making healthy choices. I've learned to work in a team and encourage adults with special needs to do the same. Its hard to help and give each athlete individual attention, but we work as a team and get it done.
Avon Representative (Former Employee) – Saint Cloud, MN – June 20, 2015
really great just so hard to get it started at first and costs a lot when first starting out. Really great people meeting and products just way to hard to start a business at the time. Do not do unless you have some money saved up.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – April 27, 2016
Handle customer requests and inquiries of products. Handle all matters regarding any back orders of products customers order. The hardest part of the job was finding the right clientele. the most enjoyable part of the job was the freedom to work when I wanted to.
Avon Representative/Supervisor (Former Employee) – 7201 W. Linvale Place, Denver , Co 80227 – November 22, 2015
Showing clients product catalogs, samples, doing facials and just having fun. I learned to be more of a people person and open up. This job gave me my voice to not just be the salesperson but to be the buyer,m and sample samples along with my clients that became more like family. Managing was possible and learned how to be an listening supervisor and find solutions to problems that arose.
The hardest part of the job was setting boundaries for my self and when to say , "no" and when to say, "yes'. Receiving your pay is one of the best things within this company but seeing little kids receive presents is always one of the most enjoyable and fascinating gifts of all.
I may not be Santa, but I was just a smidgen close to being, and that's what I call , " some kinda wonderful".
Avon Sales Representative (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 10, 2016
This job is only beneficial for those who are into commission-based work. I personally did not care for the job cuz i was looking for non-comission work. I soon quit for that reason and found other work. It is good for the right sales person though
Division Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 6, 2016
The history of this company 130 years in business in 100+ countries is what attracted me to the opportunity. The last 10 years the North America Business has been downsizing and had a revolving door at the top.
Historically a leader in the industry
Struggling to reinvent business processes and regain market share
Avon Independent Consultant (Current Employee) – Loogootee, IN – June 7, 2016
Working for Avon is purely amazing. You get to make your own schedule and never leave home if you don't want to! You have the opportunity to meet many others who share the same passion as you. You build relationships with customers and the earning potential is unlimited.
