This is the company that puts mascara on lashes and food on tables. That fights wrinkles with one hand and breast cancer with the other. That knows the value of a perfect lip, but still opens its mouth and speaks out against domestic violence and for women's financial independence. This is the company that not only brings beauty to doors, but also opens them. The company that supports 6 million Representatives worldwide. This is Avon. The company that for 130 years has stood for beauty, innovation, optimism and, above all, for women.

Everyday, Avon brings beauty to the lives of women all over the world. At Avon, beauty means finding the right lipstick shade for a customer; providing an earnings opportunity so a woman can support her family; and enabling a woman to get her first mammogram. Beauty is about women looking and feeling their best. It’s about championing economic empowerment and improving the lives of women around the world.

Avon is a company steeped in tradition, grounded by its core values and principles as well as its vision "to be the company that best understands and satisfies the product, service and self-fulfillment needs of women – globally."

On March 1, 2016, Avon separated its North America business. Avon Products, Inc. remains a publicly traded company that operates in approximately 70 countries in Latin America, Europe, Middle East & Africa and Asia Pacific. New Avon LLC, a privately-held company owned and controlled by Cerberus Capital Management, L.P., operates in the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada. The two companies operate under the Avon brand to make the world more beautiful by empowering millions of women financially through an earnings opportunity.

Avon is the Company that for 130 years has proudly stood for beauty, innovation, optimism and, above all, for women. Avon products include well-recognized and beloved brands, such as ANEW, Avon Color, Avon Care, Skin-So-Soft, and Advance Techniques. Sold through nearly 6 million active independent Avon Sales Representatives, Avon products delight consumers in approximately 70 countries worldwide.

Sales person in Herndon, VA
on August 18, 2013

In this job, I have had so much challenges. I worked every hours and everywhere. Because I am the one who has to make my own customer it was hard for me until i decided to step out and try to talk to everyone near me. It helped me to develop my communication, and making my own customers, I didn't have a co-worker beside my manager. She tells me what to do. the thing I enjoy in this job is when I accomplish the amount of customers I wanted to earn. Also its pleasant , when the customers find the products more exciting that they expected. Its has been really fun to work here.

Independent Consultant in Spokane Valley, WA
on November 20, 2022

In my experience working for Avon started off great but when it came to finances if you're not careful you get over your head in debt because you have to carry inventory in order to show customers the product and give them a real experience and interaction with you and the Avon products offered. . The best way to succeed with this company is to have a lot of spare money on hand and a lot of spare time for work instead of family if you want to get ahead.

This company does not do interviews; you only get contacted by a district manager, who shows you the opportunity and conducts at times monthly meets to discuss the business and have a time to chat and help one another in a team setting.
