    Pros

    If you are hard-working and take the initiative, you can go far in creating your own opportunities. I was promoted twice within a year due to increased productivity and guest service scores. My GM was a leader and provided excellent direction.

    Cons

    There was a lot of nepotism as far as people we were forced to work with because they know the Walshes. This led to some antagonism especially when those forced upon us were actually hurting the operation with their inexperience and lack of attendance.

    Benefits are too expensive and wages are low.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote from within as this will create employee loyalty.

    Wages need to be increased and/or employee benefits should be less expensive.

    Loyal, hard working employees should get more than a pizza party and a thank you card.

    Pros

    Promotions are readily available making it possible to expand responsibilities and elevate positions rapidly.

    Cons

    Ability to climb management ranks creates situations where you assume responsibilities beyond your role without compensation.

    I have been working at Ocean Properties part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are great , comfortable environment, and not a high stress position. Work life balance is great, perfect for students, people with more than one job and for working around family responsibilities.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible and not at all competitive, $8.50 an hour! Due to the low pay there is a constant revolving door of agents. They are constantly in need of help and can't keep the really good agents that are needed.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a more competitive wage and offer the ability for pay increases with increased knowledge base and good performance.

    Pros

    Very nice agents to work with

    Cons

    No incentives! A resort making 3 mil in one month and buying us pizza is like a punishment-local pizza shops are horrible. I want a cut of that on my next paycheck! I did a high booking and got a bag of swag whereas a gift card with a decent amount would have been much better so I can get what I need, not useless crap!
    Hated how the company would spy on me and I quit because I need better wages than the pittance I got. They have a 401k but the corp doesn't contribute because they're cheap. Logging in EACH AND EVERY CALL and the VAST amount of calls means we were backed up constantly and it is high stress! Do not apply here!

    Advice to Management

    Why don't they treat their employees better? Up the wages, level 2 agents should be making more than they are. I was making only $9 an hour so up that ante and quit punishing my friends with really bad pizza.

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time very much with OPL, from everyone on and above property. Pay was great, and the bonus structure was decent. I would definitely return to this company in the future.

    Cons

    Long hours min 50 per week, and minimal vacation (5 days), only after a 1 year waiting period was difficult to overcome.

    Pros

    Good locations in Florida that you can take advantage of during the slow season!!

    Cons

    If you prefer to be underpaid this is the right company to work for.
    If you are looking for the WORST benefits in the hospitality industry this is the company to work for.
    If you hate having a Work/Life balance and you don't expect yourself to have one, this is the perfect company to work for.
    If you like and agree with Dictatorships, this is the right company to work for.
    If you enjoy destroying your career , this is the right company to work for.
    If you love to be talked down to, this is the right company to work for.

    I believe my title says it all:

     A company that is built as a family business and always preached loyalty turned out to have none to its loyal employees.

    RUN AS FAR AS YOU AND NEVER LOOK BACK!!! THE GRASS IS ACTUALLY WAY GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE!

    Advice to Management

    They won't listen anyways.

    Pros

    very little, hotel discounts and chocolate sometimes. There were some good people to work with.

    Cons

    no breaks, just a half hour lunch, long hours, constantly on the phones with like 15 sec between the calls. Managers would be quick to anger and yet they pay min wage and expect the world. you start as an agent 1 and take marriott and holiday inn calls. then they tell you your ready for the all properties which is twice the work and the biggest joke of it was no pay raise... you get paid the same as the level 1 agents and twice the work...

    Advice to Management

    don't treat you employees like dirt, pay them something decent and maybe everyone wouldn't walk as soon as they fond something better..
