    Former Employee - District Sales Manager in Grand Rapids, MI

    I worked at Avon Products full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits, car with gas card, flexibility, incentives and bonus opportunities. Great if you are single with no children, or an empty-nester.

    Cons

    The bonuses are based on mediocre - at best - sales Representatives. The stress and loss of family time was not worth it. Did I mention stress?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needed to come out into the field. You can play with the numbers all day long, but until you actually understand what it takes to achieve them, it's a guessing game.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
