Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Avon Products full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Flexible schedule, good benefits, company car with gas card and insurance. Travel. Meet lots of new people. Experience all the products.

Cons

Upper management has been replaced or left. (Divisionals and above). Replaced with Kool-Aid drinkers only (*Wink-*Wink). District Sales managers are numbers.......hit your numbers and your loved, miss and your on the naughty list. Your only as good as your last campaign. Divisionals Micromanage their divisions. High stress and long hours. Been out factor after 5 years starts to set in under this management.

Advice to Management

Treat your managers like people and not just a number. Too many constant changes within the organization that are not working. Representatives feel low value and the core of the company. Put them first instead of just lining your pockets.

    I have been working at Avon Products part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Discounts on the products. Most of your customers are nice & you get to know a lot of people. In my case many longterm relationships have been formed.

    Cons

    Avon is increasingly only interested in your getting more people to sell. This is the only thing that seems to matter to them. Shipping has suddenly become very slow. Expenses are high. Shipping costs have increased so much & books & samples have increased in price. You have to pay to send back defective products.

    Advice to Management

    The Avon Representative is what your company started with and grew on. They deserve some respect.
