Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Mary Kay as a contractor (More than 8 years)

Pros

There are no pros to working with this company. Rather than earning money, you will lose lots of money. No pros at all.

Cons

Backstabbing among directors, cheating to achieve "goals", shunning those who decide to leave, the list goes on and on. Lots of cons.

Advice to Management

Make this a legitimate company. Make it actually possible to make a living as a director. Require sales reports before giving sales "awards". There is so much you need to change.

    I have been working at Mary Kay part-time

    Pros

    Mary Kay is whatever you want to make it, flexible and fun! pay $100, get your starter kit and get to work!

    Cons

    As with any self owned business, this requires an investment to really move up in the company. After the starter kit runs out, be prepared to save money on the side to build your inventory.

    "Great for additional income but not when starting out in life"

    Pros

    Great to earn money for a vacation and have fun. Learn a lot from this culture.

    Cons

    Not meant to be something that will be expected as a quick fix, it takes a lot of work and FaceTime.
