About Avon

Avon Products, Inc. (Avon) is a global beauty and apparel retailer headquartered in New York City, New York. The company sells a variety of products related to fashion, hygiene, and beauty in addition to home decorating items. Avon markets its products through sales representatives as well as its retail website.

Products & Services

The company’s products span several categories. Avon offers a range of beauty supplies that includes cosmetics, lotions, soaps, and fragrances. The Hair Care category covers hair coloring and maintenance products, while the Fashion department markets apparel, bags and other accessories, and shoes. These items are available in men’s and children’s styles in addition to women’s. Avon also sells decorative items, like seasonal accents and kitchen accessories. The Avon business model is based on its sales representatives, who operate independently through door-to-door sales and brochures. Customers can also shop with representatives on the Avon website.

History

Avon was founded in 1886 by David H. McConnell, a former book salesman. McConnell had originally gone door-to-door to sell books, eventually starting Avon when he noticed that many customers were more interested in the perfume samples he brought with him. He soon recruited sales representatives to sell Avon’s first product, a perfume set called “Little Dot.” The company operated as a strictly door-to-door business for about a century, until it modified the sales experience to include online ordering and “eBrochures.” Avon now operates in nearly 150 countries worldwide with more than six million representatives.

Job Opportunities

Avon is a public company that offers applicants the opportunity to become certified independent sales representatives. The company also offers career opportunities in fields like accounting, marketing, Information Technology (IT), and finance.
