Sales Representative (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 6, 2017
I have been an Avon Rep for a year. Things were going fine until recently when I received a notice that I have $59 on my account that needs to be payed off. This was quite interesting to me since I have not placed any orders, but I payed it since it was a debt collector who contacted me about it, and I didn't want to mess up my credit. When doing research on how to cancel my account I learned from other reps that having mysterious charges placed on your account is actually quite common. Their representative support team is also awful and not at all helpful. Would not recommend working here to anyone.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Morton Grove, IL – February 6, 2017
I started there in 1994 and of course over the years things change and with each new supervisor they bring different ideas as to how the company should be run but overall I would still recommend it as a great place to work
The allow you to be independent, noone looks o er your shoulder
I am sure Avon is great. My mother sold avon and so did my grandmother.Just was not for me. The customer service department is really hepful when you call.The person who is above you was nice.Just not my thing.

Its great that you can set your own work schedule. You can sell to everyone everywhere! Always meeting new people, either new customers, recruits or other sales representatives. To advance its pretty simple but you have to be consistent and love to sell and deal with people

You'll have to do a lot of driving to advertise and give out brochures. You'll have to pay for the samples and brochures yourself. You will make a percentage off of what the customer pay for once the order is completed. If a customer order something and doesn't pay for it when it returns,just send it back, but you make no money off that sale either.
What I learned about the company it takes money to make money you had by products out of your own pocket this worked for some people and not for others I learned the highs and lows in the selling market

Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – January 21, 2017
Avon really sucks because no one wants to buy and u buy some of the product to show and then u r stuck with it or someone says they want to buy it and they don't have the money and so u buy it for them and they don't come up with the money so u r stuck with it
