Interview Details –
Very strange interview. Did a standard phone screen, no surprises. I was invited to an in person interview a couple of weeks later.
In the in person interview, there were 3 people in person, 1 on the phone. I was prepared for a complete behavioral interview process, but this was odd. Clearly no one was trained in behavioral interviewing, or if they were, they haven't kept up on those skills.
The guy on the phone, Sid, said "Talk to me about pay ranges and capital expenditures". Ask me a specific question, I'll give you a specific answer, but this was vague. I should have asked for clarification, but attempted to answer his question and ended up rambling on, which was not good and I didn't do well with the question. The AVP asked me what my "ah-ha" moment was in life. Not sure what that was about, but rambled on again attempting to answer a vague question. This position reports directly to Pat, the "Southern CA CEO". He asked me one question and was on his tablet for 60 minutes. I assumed he was looking at my resume until the end of the interview when he asked if they had my resume. So, clearly he wasn't engaged in the process. Sid, on the phone, apparently left during the call as I thanked him for his time at the end and there was no response. The HR person asked me one question, "How do you motivate people?" and that was it.
At times, the people in the room were typing on their phones, or staring at his tablet, or just staring at the floor. Clearly, I wasn't what they were looking for, but out of respect for a person, be professional and consider faking it for 60 minutes.
2 or 3 months later I received the, "thanks, but no thanks" email.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Wyndham Vacation.
Interview Details –
Upon meeting recruiter, an appointment was made to go in for a group interview with other applicants. Fairly informal, but informational. Applicants were then split up for 1 on 1 interviews with Supervisors, either in person or via webcam. If you present well, it's on to the next step.
After interviews were completed, another session was scheduled. This session was more in-depth. During this time there was a lot of interaction amongst staff and applicants to gauge how friendly and/or extroverted we were, (Would we be a good fit for the environment?) This is where they make their final decision as to who is offered a job.
If one is offered a position, it's on to drug testing and waiting for background checks to be conducted. The applicant is given a start date approximately 3-4 weeks later to start their 5 weeks of paid training.
Interview Question – Describe a situation where you didn't particularly care for someone, but had to interact with them in a difficult situation. View Answer
Negotiation Details – Not much in terms of negotiation. Their informational phase is pretty comprehensive, so an applicant knows right away what the terms of employment are.
Very Difficult Interview
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Wyndham Vacation in July 2012.
Interview Details – Attended an overview meeting about vacation ownership sales with approximately 40-50 individuals with varied career backgrounds, but largely from real estate sales. There was a presentation about Wyndham Worldmark followed by personal account of current, successful Sales Reps who are making six-figure income, and then a tour of one of their gorgeous 2-bedroom suites. Next, individuals who decide to remain after presentation are asked to introduce themselves and share a favorite vacation experience. Based on this energy, individuals are selected to return for a follow-up interview. I was asked to return for a formal interview before a panel of management and Sales Reps. I was not selected for this location, but was told that if I were willing to relocate to another property, I would be highly considered. I was really disappointed I did not get the position, but I learned a lot from the interview.

Interview Details –
A corporate recruiter with Wyndham reached out to me via LinkedIn regarding the position. We scheduled a time to talk over the phone. It was more of an informational interview than a phone screen. He informed me I need to obtain my real estate license in order to sell time share in CA. Everything about the job sounded great over the phone and he decided to schedule me for an onsite interview.
He sent me a follow-up email immediately, but the information he told me over the phone didn't match the job description (job ID#1207530) on their career site. I emailed him back my concerns, i.e. work-life balance, benefits and compensation, etc.
Too many red flags so I didn't continue the interview process. He didn't reply to my email. There's no base salary/hourly wage, 100% commission. It's exactly like Vector Marketing aka Cutco. Majority of the people will get the job and realize that it's a scam. Job Seekers Beware!
Interview Question – What do you know about Wyndham? Do you have your real estate license? If not, when do you plan on getting it? Are you ok with working weekends/holidays too? Answer Question
