    Avon products are comparable to major market brands at very affordable prices.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe support system I have been working with is absolutely amazing. I have been an Avon Sales Representative since 6/25/2013 and due to the support from my unit I am now a leadership candidate with six members on my own team.

    ConsThe challenges are the same for any direct sales position. It takes hard work and time to build your business. If you are willing to invest the effort the rewards will be there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe a good leader for your downline. Help them understand what it takes to be successful and provide opportunities for them to achieve their success.

    Love Avon!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAVON has great products with reasonable pricing; it practically sells itself. There is a product for everyone. The Mark line is very trendy and has unique items. Avon is more than just make up and skin care.

    ConsMany times products are not available for order even though they are advertised in the catalog. Items are also discontinued often. For example: a client will fall in love with a perfume and then it's not offered any longer. This happens ALOT.
