Mary Kay Changes On Hold Order Status
Written by Frosty Rose
Dear reader, you may or may not know, but everything in Mary Kay is fake. From the eyelashes, to the “summer diamonds” (sum-‘er diamonds, sum-‘er not), to the titles (Future Executive Senior Sales Director, really?), to the “queens of sales” who are really queens of wholesale orders.
For years, sales directors have been leaning on what they call “on hold” orders to ensure that they meet minimum production requirements for the month or qualify for yet another fake promotion built exclusively on how much your unit orders from the company.
Essentially, consultants could build an order that they knew they couldn’t pay for, stick it on a credit card that they knew wouldn’t be accepted (maxed out again!), and assign it to their director. They then had a few days after the end of the month to “resolve” the self-inflicted problem, and trick the system.
Corporate has recently discontinued this practice, or changed the rules, or some such. Check out the fallout from one of the Facebook groups for directors.
The comment by Gwen Schneekloth is particularly interesting. If you have unit members who always have to game the system so they can order “this month” but pay a few days into next month…. then they shouldn’t be ordering! Order in the month you need it!
And Colleen Kolb bragging about consultants using multiple cards for orders so they can “wrap up a car.” If you have to use multiple cards, then that means you don’t have the money and shouldn’t be buying your way to the next level.
Can they not see the forest for the trees? For women who pride themselves on “enriching women’s lives,” they are putting up a very good show of draining every method of payment their downline has. All in the name of enriching themselves. Gross.
