    I worked at Mary Kay full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They have good products and you are able to get them half off and sometimes more than half off, or even sometimes for free if you become a consultant.

    Cons

    Every third month you have to buy $225 worth of their products at wholesale, which means 450 at retail. You will always have to pay shipping everytime an order is placed. Mary Kay has good products, but if you are not ready to over exaggerate or fake it till you make it in order to sell or recuit than you'll be digging yourself out of a hole financially. Also, read ALL the fine print as you can be prosicuited if trying to sell their products, even it is just saying you work for MaryKay. A consultant is contracted and the company does not allow consultants saying they work for MaryKay. It's all about the wording. They don't go after everyone, but they are able too and have done to many consultants.

    I have been working at Mary Kay for less than a year

    Pros

    When I started my Mary Kay business, I didn't realize how far I had to go outside of my comfort zone. However, in doing that, I have become a much more positive and social person. Every woman is beautiful, but sometimes they just need a little help to feel it. I love making women feel beautiful. When you feel beautiful, you feel better about yourself and gain confidence. I'm so glad I get to be an essential part of that! You are your own boss and make your own hours and the environment is the most positive I've ever been in! The other ladies are great and your Sales Director (at least mine) will help you with any questions you have and help grow your business with you!

    Cons

    Not always having consistent sales and reorders.

    I worked at Mary Kay part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexable, supportive, great product, growth potential, positive environment, great support system, training.

    Cons

    Work alone, constantly out at events trying to network. Fronting the cost for inventory to build up your personal store. It’s not required but it is a lot more convenient to be able to have it on hand for your customers.

    I have been working at Mary Kay full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You're your own boss and you have a great support system every step of the way and a way to get extra money in your pocket. It's also a great way to meet new people.

    Cons

    Not all customers respect your time. Some don't confirm appointments or are no shows. Some customers completely leave without a word. Not every director is a good leader.
