I worked at Avon Products

Pros

-They have wonderful products and a great selection of them.
-You get a discount on the products.

Cons

- Management would not email me back when I emailed them with questions I had.
-The chances for being scammed are very high so you have to watch it.
-Unless you place an order that is over $50, you don't make any money at all.
-Campaign deadlines are every two weeks so you don't have time to get orders in for every campaign.
-It can be demanding if you plan on making any money at all.
-You get charged for the littlest things.
-They make you pay a deposit (which is usually high) to place an order.
-They will hound you about collections over and over.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sales leaders need to answer their representatives as soon as possible when they have questions. Also, please change the rule about only getting money back from $50 orders.

    Pros

    The people are great, hard working and very committed to doing an excellent job with very little support. If you are in the field there is a good deal of flexibility as long as you are delivering results

    Cons

    The hours are unbelievable, the company expects 24/7, and if you are not working evenings and weekends it affects your prospects. If you are not one of the chosen ones in terms of a senior management favorite you may as well look for another job now. HR is one of the worst I have ever seen, they are manipulative and are constantly looking for reasons to "build a file" they cannot be trusted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the old boy network out and start fresh. Senior management is promoting friends from the past that are inept

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Bonus, Travel incentives. You have flexible time, meet with people and train them. Better their life trough relationships.

    Cons

    No time for Family, you are overwork. 14 hours a day, specially when celebrations are scheduled you start at 8 am and end at 11 pm at night with no brakes. One Divisional was so horrible that that whole division complained to HR and she is still in her position. HR is unexistent in Avon, they never listen to the employee and Managers always loose their jobs in retaliation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a reality check. Mrs. Andrea needs to go to the field with the Managers to see exactly what we do, then you will understand how important are the Managers to the business.
