    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Avon Products.

    Interview

    I met with the DM at McDonalds to chat. See interview questions for more information. It was a quick visit, she may have given me some materials - it was so long ago that I barely remember. She wasn't pushy or anything - as in- you must sign up and do this - kind of thing.

    Interview Questions

    • What are my dreams and ambitions for Avon? Is this going to be your full-time job? Do you want to be a team leader? How much money do you want to make a month?... It wasn't up to her if I sold Avon or not.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was none. I paid the $10 fee for the starter kit and got started.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Avon Products (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    First a phone screen to talk about salary and employment basics, such as whether or not I needed sponsorship. (On the salary question, they quoted a fairly low salary). Then, another person organized an onsite interview with a few people.

    The person who set up the interview did not mention that the office attire is dress pants and button-up shirts, so I was underdressed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Avon Products (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview for 30 minutes with their talent acquisition. Then their notes go to the hiring manager to decide if they want an interview with you. usually done in person, however, mine was done over the phone because the hiring manager was traveling. It was a GREAT experience. The two people so far have been very friendly, helpful, excited, and seem to truly be happy. Seems like a great company to work for, too.

    Self-appointed online through Avon website. DO NOT recommend this method of appointment for new representatives. Contact a district sales manager or another Avon representative to get established as a new representative as you will not be extended credit through Avon if you choose to self-appoint online for the life of your account.
