FALL RIVER, MASSACHUSETTS -- I never got paid for what I sold, everything was expensive. You'll need a full time job to work with Avon. Will never work for a company like Avon, because they don't communicate well with the people selling their products. Also no one is buying Avon anymore.
For the last two years, I have gotten BAD service from Avon. About 6 months ago my sister gave me the name of her E-rep. She is amazing!! She looks out for the customer. She gives me a call every month or so if she has a deal that beats the campaigns. She orders it and ships it to me. I am now shopping back with Avon through her only. You really need to try her, I don't know if I can put her name on here, but I will definitely tell you if you want to know.
OHIO -- I have to laugh in amazement at the reviews these folks give. I work for Avon customer service and I feel like Avon goes above and beyond for their reps and customers. Believe me, I know. I talk to rep's 10 hours a day, working to resolve their problems. It is all about rep's and customers for Avon - and they make sure we have treat those folks with the utmost respect and fairness.
NEW YORK, TORONTO -- BEWARE if you are ever called for an interview by AVON. Be very leery of what is ahead of you, in regards to their interview hiring process. You will experience the most horrific unprofessional business ethics ever. I am a victim. I was required to take over 12 hours of time from my work for interviewing, and then only to be told after telephone interviews, 3 hours of testing, driving over 2 hours to meet with a RSM, and spend a whole entire day for FREE following another AVON DM around where this DM exposed me to second hand smoke in her CAR for over 4 hours, when I specifically told her that I did NOT smoke.
And then I was told that I would have to drive another one hour and forty minutes to meet with a RSM from Avon for another interview. In total it cost me $100 dollars in gas money and over 12 hours of time off work, and I didn't attend another 8 hour day FREE that they would of requested that I attend.. Their RSM from the Great Lake Region for Ontario was so unprofessional that after spending 12 hours of my time with her and the Company and $100 dollars, this RSM ** of Avon did not even return any of my emails or calls to her for over a month. And then when she did, she told me that I never ever attended all the interviews or even the three hour test??
I was totally insulted and appalled at the lack of Business ethics. I have emailed the head office and they have not even had the courtesy to respond, Just be leery, the one DSM that I followed around said quote that the company doesn't care about keeping reps that sign on to sell Avon.
They just care about getting one new rep recruited a day so the company gets their $25 dollar sign up fee and the fees from their samples they have to buy. That is enough for them, and they don't care if the rep sells or stays with the company. They make enough each day just trying to hook new other reps each day and believe me, it all adds up to hundreds and millions of dollars for AVON to mistreat the population like this. I wish no other potential candidate to be treated like I was by AVON.
They are an awful company, so don't let anyone try to sign you up as a recruitment to sell or don't apply for any DSM positions. You will be in for the ride of your life, with nothing but insults like I was, AVON should be ashamed of their business ethics, there are NONE. For further horrific details call me at ** or email me at **.
NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- For many years in the past, I was a faithful buyer of Avon products. I had not purchased anything for approximately five years. Three weeks ago a co-worker of my sister's sent two Avon catalogs, Campaign 16 & 18. I ordered some slippers that were to be a part of a birthday gift, this weekend. I was assured that I would have the products about ten days ago. Yesterday I received all of the other stuff I had ordered, except the three I wanted the most. I was told, by the Avon rep that they were discontinued.
What I want to know is why on earth they were put in the new catalog, and why it took so darned long for me to be told thus. Now I have to go shopping in a department store to find the slippers, as they complete the rest of the gift. I hate department stores! I guess it would be another few years before I shop with another Avon rep.
I just purchased a pair of suede loafers (women's) from Avon, and they are dreamy! This is the first time that I have ever ordered shoes without trying them on first, so I took a risk, and won! They are true to size, and super comfy. I want to order another pair to wear as slippers! Another great thing is that their products are returnable if for any reason I do not like what I purchase from Avon. You have to try their loafers, they are the best! And only $19.99.
