Avon, Sales independent sale Consultant (Former Employee) – Grand Junction, CO – January 17, 2018
Independent sales, you were in charge of getting your own clients, setting up sales putting in orders, making sure that the order was right and that ever thing was in stock if not would have to make changes
Independent Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Mesa, AZ – January 17, 2018
AVON is an excellent company to work for you don't really have a boss you are your own boss and an Independent Sales Representative. You are self-employed with AVON you have mentors no managers and no bosses. AVON is going through a lot of changes where they focus more on the Independent Sales Representative and to help them succeed with their AVON Business.
If you make Presidents club you get free trips all over the world
You really needed to focus on getting people under you to sell AVON
AVON District Manager Assistant (Former Employee) – Mill Spring, NC – January 14, 2018
Working for Avon was not a good experience for me. I found the company to be dishonest and revealing with the way they dealt with product returns, and everything was to the advantage of the company. I also found some of then Avon leaders were very rude and competitive with everyone.
Direct Sales (Former Employee) – Sylvania, GA – January 13, 2018
I learned how to get customers. But I all so learned that they will look at the products and still want buy. They will tell me to get something but they don't have the money. I want buy put it in the computer until I am really sure that they are going to buy it. And that is when I don't hear from that person again. And I make some calls to see if the person still want produced. I just wish things were better.
got little customers, had meetings
no vehicle, they might buy or not, might get stock with the produced, hard to get customers
ADMINISTRATOR (Former Employee) – Springdale, OH – January 12, 2018
When I began my career with avon it was a wonderful place to work. With the recent Cerberus acquisition it has all gone down hill. The Director runs Avon with a dictatorship/authoritarian mentality. The company is losing money every quarter so HR is out to cut heads in order to save the bottom line. Run run run away as fast as you can.
Representante (Current Employee) – My house – January 10, 2018
Avon is a great place to work when having a lot of free time, it can take up time, but its how much you work that you earn. Its very stressful when you got to do work from the university, but its fun to talk with people and give your opinions and recommendations.
I enjoyed working with peers and the sales representatives
District Sales Manager (Former Employee) – West Region – January 9, 2018
I loved the high touch culture ... but this has changed .... I loved the products . The company's Vision, Mission and Core Values has made me stay for years with this company. The friendships I have established with so many representatives and peersmade those years with the company so much fun and rewarding.
Was not making enough income other than that i enjoyed Avon was on my own terms and on my own time which i enjoyed i love the fact i could work when i wanted too. I could find my own clients sell to who i wanted. So i felt very comfortable while i sold Avon. I would go back to Avon as a side job but you need money to invest in Avon and right now i have no funds.
EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – philippines – January 9, 2018
Working in a company such as Avon Cosmetics Company is very challenging because everyday you need to to talk to a different people convinced them to be a member. And also to convinced to purchased any Avon Item for for them to be a qualified member.
Avon representative (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – January 8, 2018
If you want to make good money with this company you have to have a very large clientele list. If that's something you do not have then you will barely make it. The expenses you pay out of pocket will only be covered if your customers order a lot. wouldn't recommend working for the company.
work on your own time
pay wasn't great and you have to have a large clientele list
