Fun times, but not much support.

Independent Sales Representative (Former Employee)
Columbus, OH

I worked at Avon Products as a contractor for more than a year

ProsThe meetings and get-together are very fun, and you get to meet lots of new people. There is usually someone who has been through whatever issue you are having and will be able to help you. You can set your own hours, and even work with your kids! The core products (makeup, fragrance, etc) are some of the best out there.

ConsThe website is hard to navigate and makes it difficult to put in orders and revamp your selling website. Products are very often back-ordered and sometimes do not end up coming at all; this can cause customer loss. The market is fairly saturated already, so it can be difficult to find new customers that aren't family. Also, the non-core products (some of the jewelry, gift items, etc) are very poorly made and break or don't work, and the returns process is a nightmare.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake returns easier on the customer and the ISR. Streamline your website. Get better manufacturers for your non-core products, or stop selling them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
