    If you follow procedure, remain positive and are likeable/trustworthy then you WILL earn GREAT money there!

    Senior Owner Specialist & Sales Manager (Current Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsHelping families to stay in 5 star resorts and to go on vacations they normally wouldn't go on all the while earning a great income with full benefits!

    ConsEasy to get dragged down by negativity. Lots of rejection you need to move past to give each presentation an equal chance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen someone gets caught up in the negativity or into a slump, rather then a general pep talk to everyone in the morning meetings, sit down with the rep and find out what motivates them and remind them why they are there, what they are working for before they end up walking away from the job. In conclusion, implement things to increase the companies retention rate of employees such as NO DRAW for the first 30 days or increase the flat salary (draw) from $250 for reps and $500 for managers by $250 and have NO DRAW on half for the first 30 - 60 days while reps and new managers adjust to their new position/job. It took me 3 months before I was able to figure out my presentation and become comfortable with it, however i did earn over $100,000.00 my first full calendar year.

    Administrative Assistant

    Senior Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) Parsippany, NJ

    ProsIn comparison to working with Wyndham Vacation Ownership, Wyndham Worldwide truly is an office with unbeatable amenities. There is a gym that supplies towels, shampoo and conditioner, a cafeteria, game room, meditation room, nursing room,a nurse that works on site Monday- Friday. There are vendors that often set up by the cafeteria that allows you to do a little shopping on you lunch break. Also, a mini convenience store that sells your basic bread, milk, eggs and Boars Head cold cuts, candy and much more. Did I mention, tuition reimbursement and a great health benefits.

    ConsI have not encounter any cons.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI have been luckily to have great management and I believe the "one on one" talks really help.
