Independent Beauty Consultant (Current Employee) – Ashburn, VA – November 16, 2015
A typical work day varies because I can make my own hours. I have learned how to hold and plan parties and work around my full-time schedule to make some extra money on the side. The hardest part of the job is finding time from my full-time job to make time for Mary Kay. The most enjoyable part of this job is the flexibility and the people that I work with!
Sadly the intern program I was apart of has been disbanded. But for what it was, it was really excellent - flexible hours, which allowed me to pursue grad school, friendly and encouraging coworkers, all for a company that is very proactive in the world.

On a regular Mary Kay day I'd go out with my mom and offer free facials to people so they can try our cleansing products or makeup. We also pick up and drop of products to our clients that live in far areas. Its a relaxing job because you don't have to do it all day or worry about being late. Its an on your own time job.The only hardest part about it that I can honestly say about it is that you don't make sales everyday. I guess that's why it can be a part time job. Besides that it is amazing and i love the products and free gifts.
Meeting new people, great gifts after sales, challenges you, and prepares you to be independent.
Well paying rewarding empowering self improvement business
Image Consultant (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – September 18, 2017
Well paying rewarding empowering self improvement business - love being my own boss working when I wanted & putting my priorities in order. The mission of faith first, family second & career last resonated with me & I love that its a debt free, family owned company that doesn't test on animals & recycles the product packaging.
Mary Kay Representative (Former Employee) – Lexington, NC – September 14, 2017
if you are out going and thrive in sales, this is for you. love the products and the people that i worked with, but if you want to make this your sole earning, than you really need to push it and do it everyday, its really not a good thing to do on the side. you don't make money like that.
Mary Kay is a great place to work. The mission is to 'Enrich the lives of women', and everyone works hard to make that happen. The culture truly follows the Golden Rule. The large international presence makes it a very interesting and dynamic work environment. It is a great place to learn and grow.
Around inspirational women, but a lot of smoke in mirrors
Owner (Former Employee) – Livonia, MI – September 10, 2017
A typical day would be to go to the studio and set up for a skin care class. Based on the information I attained prior to, each spot had products that matched skin type. At the end of the class, I would get information on their skin care needs, and set follow-up appts that I would try to turn into parties. Hardest part was getting parties together. The most enjoyable part was it was fun girl time no matter what the outcome!
Sale Products and Introduce others to the company as business owners
business owner (Current Employee) – Addison, TX – September 8, 2017
A day on the job consists of selling products to customer, conducting skin care facials, makeovers, and parties for those wanting new looks and great skin. I learned that each person wants or needs something different and you can't treat each customer/client the same. Hardest part initially was approaching ladies introducing myself and presenting business cards. Most enjoyable-handling out business cards to total strangers once I got over the fear of doing it.
Making women feel special and look great
Convincing others that you can make this a great business and earn money
Mary Kay independent consultant (Former Employee) – Sumter, SC – September 5, 2017
As an independent beauty consultant the benefits are out of this world. if it was not for family emergencies i would still be working my business full circle. it is a great company to work for and you have the advantage of working a flexible schedule which was very beneficial!
If you like being around snobby, fake, women while working hard for hardly no pay then Mary Kay is for you.
Beauty Consultant (Current Employee) – Columbus, GA – September 4, 2017
While working for Mary Kay I learn that after all the sales I made I still had no pay to show for it, the supervisor are thieves they take all the money, you don't make anything basically unless you've got a team behind you.
