    I worked at Orange Lake Resorts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent perks - Theme park tickets were the best!! Great holiday party and lots of family/employee centered events throughout the year.

    Cons

    Some of the upper management was questionable. It seems that you really have to kiss up a little to get somewhere.

    Only a few succeed but worth the struggle

    Former Employee - Timeshare Sales Consultant  in  Orlando, FL

    I worked at Orange Lake Resorts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great culture and excellent work-life balance, when you're selling the money is fantastic

    Cons

    Challenging to stay consistently in selling, many ups and downs, with the highs being very high but the lows being very low

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management does a good job motivating, having a draw build up during training so when you do finally hit the sales floor you owe $2,000 is difficult to overcome in the beginning but that could be different now

    Sales and Marketing-driven organization

    I worked at Orange Lake Resorts full-time

    Pros

    If you are in the Sales & Marketing org,t hen your bonus checks are very nice during good years which is often.
    Annual passes to the theme parks
    If you are a strong performer, you could move up quickly, but expect to work 6-days a week.
    Privately owned company vs public traded timeshare company AND the Wilson family is the real deal although they aren't around much (understandably so).

    Cons

    The employees and company are not as truthful as they could be about the product (timeshare) to potential buyers. If you do not work in Sales & Marketing, you aren't valued by the organization. Sales & Marketing run the show and it's obvious.
    Their turnover is extremely high for a number of reasons such as long work hours/day for all levels (nice if you are hourly employee), there is no such thing as work-life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd like them to take a real look at their culture and how that drives turn over.
