The first thing I noticed about this company is the longevity of its employees. It is hard to walk down the hall and find someone who hasn't been employed at Mary Kay for 10-20 years. This company really does indeed care about their employees.

Pros: your bussiness
Cons: $ fluctuates
The best part of this job is that you make your own schedule and you are your own boss. It was nice to make pink party's and phone calls to customers. Hard because you never know how your sales may go. Then again its how hard you work and how much time you put towards it.

The most enjoyable part of the job was being immersed in makeup and skin care products and making women feel beautiful! – less
