Independant Sales Representative
Avon Independant Sales Representative (Current Employee), Westbury, NYJune 15, 2014
This job can be hard and also rewarding. If you are doing door to door sales as I do, you must prepare all the catalogs for distribution and make sure your name and phone number are on every one. Distributing to all current customers every 2 weeks is as important as searching for new customers. Following up with current customers can increase sales. – more... You make your own hours, but you need to keep it on a schedule so that the customers can depend on you. I have learned to break through shyness, which was a problem when I was younger and how to run a business. The hardest part of the job is walking door to door to canvass for new customers. The best part is watching my earnings increase and being rewarded by Avon for reaching the various sales levels. Rewards range from awards to dinners, products and trips. – less

Avon
Representative (Former Employee), Ocala, FLJune 10, 2014
Pros: own business
Cons: more money out then in.
Work from home, work at own pace, what i learned is data entry and how to manage my own business. No Management, no co-workers, hardest part of the job is you have to pay avon more then what you make.... you have to pay for the shipping and then collect money from the customers so basicall more money in AVON pocket then your own unless you are financially – more... stabled and can afford to pay for the order up front. – less

Productive, self motivating job experience
Avon Representative (Former Employee), Hazleton, PAJune 4, 2014
Avon is a company that teaches you how to run a small business. You decide your own fate with the company. How it works is Avon sends you their catalogs, you find your own clientele, they place orders, you manage the ordering and product delivery to customers, manage money, and then do it again in two weeks. I felt Avon was a good experience. I personally – more... did not have a good time with it but not because of the company. I had customers place an order and never pick it up. As an Avon rep you are responsible for paying for everything however they do have a return process. Avon had perks. You made money based on how much product you sold. This was great because it's where I bought all my makeup. Avon really is a good experience. Responsibility and self motivation are two key components of the job. – less

I liked being my own boss and making a lot of money
Avon Sales Representative (Former Employee), Thompson, PAJune 4, 2014
Pros: i was my own boss
Cons: i had to take the money out of my account first and then be compensated after the products came in, and it was overwhelming with school and already having another job on top of it.
I loved doing Avon because I can sell as many products as people wanted and they would buy them, I would then take that amount of money out of my account and Avon would compensate me. Avon has a lot of really cheap make-up and items that are really cute and many people really like buying them. Some people buy them every day or monthly, etc. The only – more... catch was having to find people who wanted to buy and that could pay upfront. I loved that I was my own boss/manager and my co-workers (the people I hired to help sell Avon) were all very flexible with the online work and did well with selling the items. The most enjoyable part of my job was the excited look my consumers would give me when recieving their products. It made me happy by making their day. – less

You make your own schedule but you really have to invest a lot of money to make money.
Sales Rep (Current Employee), Lakeland, FLJune 3, 2014
I enjoy doing it. The only thing about it is that its only commission base so I don't keep it as a full time job on a side job.

Great place to meet new people and promote new products
Sales Representative (Current Employee), Corpus ChristiMay 29, 2014
Pros: conversing with new people on a daily basis.
With AVON I am considered to be self-employed, but new alone. AVON allows me to meet many people and let them indulge in little treats. AVON has everything from men's cologne to make-up for women. Their wide range of products allowed me to reach almost everyone that I met. I find AVON more as a hobby than a job. Although, I do feel that over the last – more... year I have learned much about sales, marketing, public speaking and finance tracking. – less
