It's been many years but I went through a Sales Leadership Orientation to initially apply for the job. Then met with the Division manager a couple of times and was hired. Now it's a much longer process from what I understand. 3-4 months.

    Reasons for Declining

    The region I would be responsible for was an hour away and I feel the position is better suited for someone who lives in the area or does not have a family. The job offers a lot of flexibility if you live in the area.

    Interview

    Someone will call you and interview over the phone then they will schedule another over the phone with the Division manager and if they like what you bring to the table you'll have another phone with upper management . It takes awhile they do a very detailed background check. Just close the sale when your talking to them.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Avon Products (Mountain Home, AR) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Lengthy! The whole process took about THREE MONTHS. I was interviewed over the phone about 4 times, then did a in person interview. I also had to do two ride a longs, one of which I had to drive almost 3 hours to meet with the other manager. They have you take a "situation" test where a HR person describes different scenarios over the phone which was a little stressful. They did NOT tell me that I would have to pay $15 my first day to become a representative. They also tell you you get a company car. You do, however it's not until you complete your training and become assisgned. When I asked how long that would take, they told me anywhere from 3 months to a year. Luckily I was done around 2 months.
