Contractor (Current Employee) – Addison, TX – September 27, 2016
As a contractor, job security/advancement does not apply to my position. However, I have first-hand knowledge of this company's dedication to promoting from within. As a result, mid-career positions are somewhat limited. If I could accept a junior or entry-level position, I would jump at the chance at a permanent position.
I must say, becoming an Independent Consultant was a wonderful decision for me at that time. My children were small and I was able to quit my full time job to focus on my own business. I was able to set my own hours and have the flexability to do additional jobs to suppliment my income while continuing to build my business. Earning cars, jewelry, trips and the relationships that were built were priceless!
My typical day at work consist of setting up my calls for that day and talking with my customers as well as my coworkers to better assist me with my sales. I love working with people of all types as well as all ages. I believe Mary Kay cares about there customers as well as we do as consultants. I enjoy working with Mary Kay and enjoy working in sales / network marketing because it gets me out of my comfort zone and challenges me to achieve my goals on a daily basis.
I get to meet new people and work for myself as well as set my own hours.
You dont always know your set wages because you are an independant consultant.
Mary Kay Independent Consultants are dynamic women and men
Independent Marketing Consultant (Current Employee) – Lake Worth, FL – September 20, 2016
As an Independence Skincare adviser, my days are comprised of booking calls, team building as well as selling of Mary Kay skin care and personal care products.
I spend time interacting with clients and advising them of the appropriate products for the care of any issues with their skin. I also allow women to envision themselves building a home based business for themselves as a part time or if they choose a full time basis.
Independent Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Rio Grande City, TX – September 15, 2016
My typical day at was good love selling items and learning new things. I've learned how to improve myself to put on make up on me and on costumers. Showing the costumers the new product that we had and make the sell. Always ask the costumers if they want to be a part of the group. My management was alright not 100% complaint, was really hard to get a hold of her. I work by myself making the sells and getting ladies into Mary Kay Inc. My hardest part of my job was nothing just working alone. I love my job that every time We get new items and new clients.
I love working for Mary kay...the ladies are so loving and caring. I wouldn't change my work with them for anything. What we do is find woman who have not yet tried Mary Kay yet or have and do not have a consultant to get them the products there missing. Door to Door or Business to Business its hard long work but fun to help woman feel there best.
50% commition, Prizes, Cars, Parties and haveing a wounderful company to back you up.
Advanced Color Consultant and IBO (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – September 1, 2016
I love being a Mary Kay consultant! I can run my business however I choose, and I love getting to know my customers one-on-one. When I meet with my hostess, my presentation to her does not feel like work; it's more like girl time and pampering! My customers are very loyal, mostly because Mary Kay offers top-of-the-line skin care and cosmetics, and because I give them very good, personal service! The best part about this job is the sky is the limit, and I am the boss to however far I want to go!! I love my Mary Kay!!
I love working with and for Mary Kay, Inc. The history is wonderful and continues to inspire and empower young women all across the world to pursue their dreams through personal small business ownership. The hardest part of the job is just starting! Once you are through the door it is just wonderful, exciting and so much fun to help other women with skin care, hygiene and cosmetic products! Through Mary Kay, I have been able to learn so many valuable skills. The details, taxes and organization that come through owning your own small business are wonderful and completely rewarding.
Independent Senior Beauty Consultant (Current Employee) – Bay Shore, NY – August 21, 2016
I am a part time entrepreneur so I work for myself. I book appointments for free facials that turn into future parties and new bookings. My days include waking up early and creating a plan on how to reach my sale goals that week and that month.
My coworkers are actually my team members, I am a senior consultant so I work hand in hand with my business partner to reach our next level in the business. I also work closely with my director that mentors me and guides me to go higher.
The most enjoyable part of the job is watching the women I work with transform and become happy as they sample and use the Mary Kay product.
Independent Beauty Consultant (Former Employee) – Salem, OR – August 21, 2016
Man, where do I begin?! I LOVED working for Mary Kay! The company was amazing and very well thought out. Earning things and winning prizes was easy. The hardest part about my job was not putting enough time in to it. I had another job so I couldn't fully invest in to it. I would say that working for Mary Kay needs to be a full time job in order to see any real benefits (like a car). The best part? The way that company makes you feel! They make you feel like you can do anything. They make you feel beautiful and of worth. I learned from this company that I can do anything and that I shouldn't listen to what the world has to say because I'm perfect and strong.
Productive and making money daily while making customers beautiful and happy
Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant (Current Employee) – Dayton, OH – July 12, 2016
I called customers to check customer service. Everyone respects the products outcome. I am self employed. The hardest part of the job is customers conflicting schedules. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing customers smiling after using the products and happy of the outcomes of the products.
Getting paid daily
customers not having enough money for the products
I thoroughly enjoy being a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant. It is the most rewarding job for women there is. It's different, but whole heartedly a faith based business. Putting your faith in God is putting your faith in yourself. Believe you can be in a pink Cadillac, and you will.
Flexability, be your own boss.
Staykng motivated. Daily income producing activity.

I loved the core values set in the business and the focus on team building and women empowerment. The career is very flexible and rewarding. This business helped me to develop my sales skills and styling expertise. I loved recruiting, event planning, and other business aspects taught in the company.
Flexible hours, team building, customer services, one-on-one consultation
The start-up expenses of starting your own personal business
Independent Beauty Consultant (Current Employee) – New Jersey – July 7, 2016
The most enjoyable part besides signing your own check is meeting different cultures and not a boring routine. I have learned how to interact with different types of personalities and continuous training keeps you well updated with new products and information to keep clients well informed and instructed. hardest part of the job has been the cold booking of new customers
apreciation for your work, career car, gifts, trips
Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant (Current Employee) – Olathe, KS – July 1, 2016
Although I have only been an IBC since December 2015, I absolutely love what this company stands for: Faith first, Family second, Career third. I have grown not only as a business woman but also as a mother, wife, daughter, and sister. The people you meet in your journey to empower women will surprise you, as they are all astonishingly positive and make you feel like a billion-dollars after every chat you have. The most enjoyable place I have ever "worked," but is it even considered work when you're having SO much fun?
Flexible hours, positive atmosphere, inspiration from corporate and other MK consultants

Senior Beauty Consultant (Current Employee) – San Francisco Bay Area, CA – October 19, 2016
Very up beat confident women helping and encouraging each other in healthy ways. I just didn't like the age difference and its somewhat of a pyramid scheme. I am still enrolled for the discounts for friends and family but I'm inactive as a sales associate otherwise.
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.
