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

Pros: working at my own pace and having a flexible schedule.

Experiencing a new line of work with outdoor sales that involves business to consumers. I am my own boss but there is still a Unit Leader I have to report to obtain meeting times, information of new products or incentives and etc. Boosting sales by increasing clientele and maintaining relationship with existing clients.

A typical day at work was making your own hours.
You manage your own hours
Co-workers were willing to help you work towards your quota for the week
Hardest part of the job was marketing to get new customers to buy Avon
The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to stay home with my daughter while making my own hours

Very educational and I learned something new and that was to do your job right.
Avon Sales Representative (Current Employee), Greenville, ALMay 18, 2014
You have to be on your job everyday if you are working with Avon.
I learned to be mathematical and to gently ask customers what do they like. My manager was a lady she was ahead of the Avon department. The hardest part of the job was getting up everyday trying to find people who would like to purchase merchandise. The most enjoyable part of the job – more... is delivering the merchandise. – less
