I like Mary Kay, Inc because of the excellence in the products in both skin care and cosmetics versus the prices for similar.
Independent Beauty Consultant (Former Employee) – Work location is based at home office. – August 22, 2018
Working Mary Kay Inc., I find it to be a bonus for several reasons. You sell the products while you also can use them yourself. I cannot sell something I don't believe is of excellence. The hours are up to the individual as an Independent Beauty Consultant. However, you have to begin by asking family and friends to sponsor you in having the initial skincare classes. In some areas, it is easy to set up more skincare cosmetic shows. But in other areas, people do not have the interest or the time to do so. Therefore, it is not 100 % achievable to be able to make a steady amount of money although I do love the products themselves.
Mary Kay Inc. could help their Independent Beauty Consultants make more money by helping in giving them more in travel expenses for their annual convention, and in giving them brochures and paper products too.
There is a lot of competition, as other larger stores sell cosmetics similar for a lot less money. And on the other end of the spectrum? The high-end department stores sell cosmetics and skincare products at enormous prices!
I've found that it is more like a "side job", than a regular career for more advancement.
In discovering this, I must move forward to a career I'm applying for in order to gain a lucrative future.
Freedom to set your own schedule.
People chose whether or not they will buy, no matter how well they truly like the products.
