I worked at Avon Products full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great products and you get to work at your own pace and time

Cons

The system Is not transparent.For any campaign that you do not make an order for,you are charged!.The billing system is very crafty.They present a low total amount at checkout but,when your invoice is sent,they embed several charges by which time the order may have shipped thereby putting your balance in a negative.Most times,Iended up paying the difference frommypocket because you look stupid if you go back to the customer that the price you originally gave her isnt actually the price.you are even charged for samples,you pay to be a representative,you pay to work for Avon.its not worth it at all,its better to sleep than take on this loss because it isnt a job to say the least

Advice to Management

Stop exploiting your representatives,,have some transparency;let ppl know the actual total figure of an order ,if there are additional charges,pls let it appear on thescreen not after the order has been processed,it doesnt show class,it reflects craftiness and desperation!!!!!!

    I have been working at Avon Products full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fun products, feel good about helping people, good prices for customers - easy sales

    Cons

    Management heavy, work load greater than salary. They say there is bonus opportunity - but the company is declining rapidly and there have been no bonuses for quit awhile.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing the rules every two weeks. Put focus back on helping Representatives make money with sales and not all about recruiting for more Reps! Too much money spent on Conferences to get the managers excited when they could give us each $500 to get us excited!

    Pros

    You can make your own work schedule, and the more you sale, the more you make

    Cons

    In sales, not everyone one will be won over at first. It takes patience and diligence to achieve any goal.

    Advice to Management

    Some will work with you, some will ignore you.
