    I worked at Avon Products full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love the products. We would receive samples of the new items before they are available to be able to test and demonstrate it.
    Up until the most recent position changes, I enjoyed the flexibility.

    Cons

    After eliminating over half of the district manager positions, of those that were selected to move forward, they were given a larger area to cover and the demand was higher however; the pay was not worth the increase of work.

    Advice to Management

    When you ask for feedback or ideas, give some kind of acknowledgement that it's been received and make an effort to do something about it.
