I worked at Wyndham Vacation full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Incredible Management
I was given a large amount of responsibility quickly. This allowed me to showcase my strength, which my department head recognized with a pay increase and title promotion.
Due to the immense workload, I was able to work with several different client personality types, which challenged me and ultimately made me a more well rounded design professinal.
The company encouraged and promoted vacations

Cons

Overwhelming Workload
Heavy Travel Schedule
Demanding and often difficult timelines
Tight budgets

    I have been working at Wyndham Vacation full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    (Front-Line Sales)
    Great Benefits and Discounts, Perks.
    Training Pay.
    Highly-recognizable brand with presence in the market.
    Great position if you care more about your own income than others.
    High income opportunity - some reps make upwards of $10-20k in a month.

    Cons

    (Front-Line Sales)
    Consider asking the recruiter how busy you will be at your position. There were some weeks where I would be "working" only 4 hours of the 5 days I was sitting there. Extremely boring with no tasks to be done. Managers and team were very friendly, though outspoken and expressed lack of professionalism and boundaries.

    The communication between Reps, Managers, and the Trainer is highly confusing. The training seemed mostly to be a joke that helped very little with the actual selling of the product. If it is a sales position, Sell the salesmen on the product.
    Lots of "grey areas" that managers encourage reps not to reveal to clients, such as fees and costs of ownership. They call it "hiding the truth", which is not to be confused with lying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help to get training and sales views aligned. Tough transition from 10-day training into the sales position. Also, give more coaching and on-going training. And sell the reps on the product, don't tell them how to cheat people.
