    Pros

    It's a great work environment, hours are great and most of the people you work with are fun. Great place to work if you are a good salesman

    Cons

    Commission only! You get a draw to cover some basic expenses, but if you have benefits, don't expect to see more then about $20 per week of that draw. If you are making sales then you get your commission instead of the draw which is good, but you have to pay back the draw out of your commissions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really would like to see a small hourly rate (that you didn't have to pay back) plus commission on top.

    Awful place to work.

    Pros

    Pay okay. Hours okay. Benefits okay.

    Cons

    Supervisor was awful. They didn't know their job and you got blamed for their mistakes. You were expected to know everything after 2 weeks of working there. I wouldn't suggest working there to anyone.

    Pros

    -Competitive pay.
    - 401k is great.
    - Good health benefits.

    Cons

    -Fear, intimidation, and threats are how they manage employees.
    -What does it matter to have good benefits and bad management who cause high turnover.
    -They place people in management with no management experience.
    -Most departments management structure is comprised of novices wanting to pretend they know how to run a department. It a complete joke on a daily basis. A far cry of what make a good company a great one.
    -The motto $hare Happiness is as genuine as pleather.
    -When the executives can't see the warning signs and declining morale of their departments, how can you call yourselves leader's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Institute a system where employees can survey management and review them annually to see what the employees really feel and experience on a daily basis being mistreated.

    Pros

    Great co workers. Great prices on rooms when available. Great owners that we see time after time.

    Cons

    Stressful. Owners upset over things that were out of employees control. Computer program antiquated. Difficult to solve problems due to outdated computer system. Resort employees left to deal with the aftermath of what owners were told by salespeople.
    NEPOTISM

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company needs better training. Reading a piece of paper and signing your name is not training.

    Pros

    Great pay and advancement opportunities. Best base salary in town for most all positions offered.

    Cons

    New DOM came to town cleaned house and would not stand up for those he put in place. Now he has been fired and bridges have been burnt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If it isn't broken don't fix it? Listen to your employees with years committed to the job. Very disappointed how political it got in the office before I left.

    Pros

    Sold some great vacation getaways and made a lot of people happy. I enjoyed the people I worked with as we tried to have a little fun every day,

    Cons

    working outside no matter if you were hot or cold (should say freezing), 90 or 27 degrees standing for 6 hours in windy,raw rainy, snow days or nights is very hard to keep an upbeat attitude when you would make the same money an hour as someone working in beautiful warm (or air conditioned booth) in sunny Florida and have to explain why I didn't reach my sales goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone from corporate should spend at least one week (not a day and a half )in January and see how hard it is to keep an upbeat attitude every day when no one wants to stop and stand there to listen to you in the snow or rain in freezing temperatures, But they tell you that you won't have to do that cause we will be going to an INSIDE Mall for 3 months. I think they say that just to get you to stick it out for BLACK Friday and Christmas... But they never followed through or had a plan. I am a sales rep. who depends on my commissions to make a decent income. I can't survived off of an hourly wage especially when the cost of living is so much higher than the rest of the country. Show you care and a little sugar goes a long way...
