Had a required quota to meet each month if that was not met you didn't get any money for your work. In my opinion there product is to expensive and not enough people are willing to spend on little product and having to spend so much money.

Independent Beauty Consultant (Former Employee) –  Glendora, CAApril 1, 2016
The company is great if you love people and love sales. It is great because you can create your own schedule.

The only draw backs are if you are not into going up to strangers trying to get leads. It was hard at first but it became second nature.

They offer a lot of training oppportunites to help you succeed. It is a direct Sales Company.
Pros
Flexible schedule
Cons
Commision Based

Fun working environment
INDEPENDENT BEAUTY CONSULTANT (Current Employee) –  Sunnyside, WAMarch 26, 2016
Being a Mary-Kay independent beauty consultant brings on a lot of challenges but it is also very fun and rewarding. The coworkers are really nice and very supportive. They help you out to reach your goals and always encourage you to keep being motivated. I think the hardest part about this job is probably finding the right type of client and adapting to always being on the move. But overall it's a really great job and experience.
Pros
Self employed
Cons
products are pricey, also having to go out and knock on doors to look for clients
