Independent Sales Consultant, Self-Employed (Current Employee) – Ashland, NE – September 21, 2017
I love the flexibility Mary Kay gives you. You work your business as hard as you wish so when you can't work, your business will work for you. You get out of it as much as you put in which is truly amazing. Plus, the ability to empower women and to change their lives is truly remarkable!
Flexible hours, freedom with your time
If you don't make the sale, you don't get a paycheck
Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant (Former Employee) – Texas – September 21, 2017
I would not recommend venturing into this business unless you are a financially stable, outgoing, people focused person. This is the same as owning your own small business which means you MUST put in money, time, and LOTS of effort and patience. Depending on which team you join will determine how much support they will give you. This is not a 9-5 job it is a 24hour on call all day business. Yes, you set your own hours, BUT the amount of time you put into this will determine the amount of profit you make.
Men and Women work for Mary Kay, Meet new people, Build friendships
Hustle 24 hr/day, Profit not guaranteed, Need money to start
Business Owner (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, WI – September 21, 2017
This job can give you extra money, you work the hours you want to that fit into your lifestyle. You get to meet people from all over the world. It is also a great way to meet people in your area. The women in Mary Kay are absolutely wonderful. When my husband passed away in Baltimore, they blew up my facebook, phone and also came to my rescue. I learned that not all skin care and cosmetics are created equal. There is a lot of junk out there that is constantly being pulled off the shelves because they are misleading the consumer.
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
