Pros

Everyday is different with the people you work with and helping them with their businesses. Bonuses and time to build your schedule are the best portions of the job. Having the flexibility to work the business you see best is empowering.

Cons

Constant recruiting numbers of growing the business with new people instead of developing sales from within. Having so many job responsibilities but only have recruiting new representatives really matter is a constant balancing act.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The two week selling cycle could be adjusted to a three week selling cycle like in Europe where the company seems to be more profitable. The shipping schedule with abilities to have it tracked all the way to the door via UPS instead of our own contracted companies that work part time could be more price effective and responsible.

    I worked at Avon Products full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great Company 10 yrs ago. To many bad decisions has taken the company from Great to Poor.

    Cons

    Changing their programs before they give them a chance to show results. They treat their employee's like numbers on a paper, no value for the people who have given them 10 plus years. High turnover of representatives, because they can't make money without training. Management expects 50 new representatives to be signed up every 2 weeks, with expectation the new reps sell $200 plus with their first order. Think Twice before you join this company!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
