Mary Kay career car qualifiers also have the option of selecting cash compensation in lieu of the car. Currently, more than 7,300 Mary Kay independent sales force members have qualified for career cars, with more than 1,400 of those being pink Cadillacs. Since the program’s inception in 1969, more than 120,000 independent sales force members have either qualified or re-qualified to earn the use of a Mary Kay career car.

U.S. “Each car in this exciting incentive program reflects the hard work, determination and professionalism of the independent sales force. The coveted pink Cadillac is the ultimate, most recognizable symbol of achievement.”
