Sales position where the higher you go the more your focus turns to team building rather than selling the actual product.
Senior Sales Director (Former Employee) – Greenville, NC – June 26, 2016
Mary Kay is a great opportunity however make sure that you are actually selling the product; not just continuously ordering more inventory. The most enjoyable part of the job for me was watching women find a confidence within themselves that they never knew they had. The hardest part was having to motivate others. You can only lead a horse to water.
Director of Sales (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – June 23, 2016
The best company to work for. Every easy to sell but you have to love on what you are doing and believing. It does happen. You can make lots of money and also it is hard work too.. I became director for the company within my first six months with the company. That was work.
working from home
nothing negative - lots of hours at the beginning of your busy and controlling your money
Recruiter (Current Employee) – Duluth, GA – June 21, 2016
Fun, Fast Paced and Upbeat! You choose your strategic partners, your mentors and your core team. This means you get to pick the skill sets, talents and personalities you want to work with. You are in full control and you call all the shots.
There is always something to do & there is always someone out in the world looking to find their inner beauty. A typical day at work for me is going out to a busy area looking for someone that could be interested in the product I'm selling. I manage my own business. The only hard part of the job is when you lose a customer because they feel like they found a better product to use. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to wake up whatever time you want to & work how ever many days you want too.
Independent Beauty Consultant (Former Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – June 13, 2016
An at home independent business that you really have to work hard at and make time for to become successful. The hardest part of the job is maintaining balance of business and family life. The most enjoyable part of the job is going to weekly meetings and being celebrated for your accomplishments.
Mary Kay gives you training and opportunity to learn and grow your business. The hardest part of this is to invest money to keep your business going. No co workers just team members. A typical day is calling up clients you have serviced looking for a rebook. The most enjoyable part of my work is to make people feel good and help them find the beauty that is unique inside of themselves. Management or Directors are skilled to motivate you to want to be a high achiever.

Senior Sales Director (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – June 11, 2016
A typical day at work would start with preparing my agenda for the day. The first thing in my agenda tends to be to call all my key consultants and follow-up in their progress. Once the updates are done, I proceed with booking calls, where I give myself a goal of the day. This process can take as short as an hour or up to three hours, depending on my goal. After booking calls I usually go have lunch with my family or friends. The rest of my day consists of replying back to people that are scheduling appointments or checking in with my key customers on their favorite products. All of this is done on my phone, so I can multi-task and do my personal errands at the same time.
There are many things that one learns in a Mary Kay business, besides the details or funning your own independent business; you learn to money and time manage; how to address issues with customers or consultants in a professional manner; how to build a team and empower them; how to lead a team and be an example; and how to think like an entrepreneur.
Once a consultant realizes that their future with Mary Kay is bigger than they expected, they have the choice to promote themselves to higher positions such as Star Team Builders, Team Leaders or join the 2% of the company as a Sales Director. All the training and coaching will be given depending on each level. Because it is a self-promotion, many people have enjoyed the support of the other Sales Directors and National Sales Directors. Everyone treats each other like family.
I believe the hardest part of the job is the mental part. The skills and informationmore... are all learned eventually, but the training of your beliefs and self-growth is done inwards. It takes affirmations, motivational articles and books, and new habits to build a strong mind set.
I loved and love everything about this position because it has given me the confidence to face everything. The sisterhood and family environment aids in the consistent and unconditional support for this company.less
Free training, self-promotions, no quotas, tax-deductables, flexible hours and freedom.
Consultants don't take business seriously and quit early.

makeup!!! makeup!!!! makeup!!!!!!!!!! What can be more fun to do? Using a color chat, changing women images, lifting up somebody's self-esteem, giving a hope via beauty gave me the joy and happiness every day.
Independent Senior Cadillac Sales Director (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – June 3, 2016
Great company to work for if you are a self starter. You work for yourself as a consultant/ director but not by yourself. You will need to have a strong background in sales and recruiting if you want to move up fast.
Mary Kay has proven to be a wonderful way to earn income in between jobs or as a full time career. I have use the product and I believe in it. Management opportunities are received and the training is ongoing and available to whoever wants it. Mary Kay Cosmetics has a reputation for producing upscale professionals who care about their appearance and represent the company with dignity and sophistication.
You can work at a pace that is comfortable for you.
