    I have been working at Silverleaf Resorts part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fun work environment, outgoing people, communication, flexible schedule and decent pay!

    We recently got a new director that has been great and makes working here a blast! She is a great communicator and is very positive and fair! I almost left previously and am glad I stuck around to see the changes she has made.

    I currently refer my friends to this job because it is a better pay compared to most places!

    Cons

    Commute, office location. Some events can be pretty far away from my house.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe a little more training at events and less in the office!

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

    Pros

    Weekly pay
    Good incentives
    Insurance
    Spiffs
    Ummm thats it

    Cons

    100% commission. Too many chiefs not enough indians. The mindset is to tear you down and build you back up how they want you. The silverleaf way. Very hostile environment. Management and reps all sleep around and if you aren't on the inside group your on the outs. If you can handle that then try it out... but beware.. they came in with hr and closed the seaside sales floor. Everyone either lost their jobs or were asked to move cities. They made us work labor day and fired us the next day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You promote with the wrong intentions. You have some cold hearted people and you promote them?! People who dont care for or about the company. In the meantime you fire so many people that had their hearts in Silverleaf.

    I worked at Silverleaf Resorts part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working different places like malls, games, and other events.
    Bosses Probably the most caring ever
    Weekly paychecks
    Insurance and flexible schedules
    I loved my co workers they really were like a family

    Cons

    Stigma about timeshare that they fail to try to change that is a shame because it really is a good product for young or large families on a budget
    Not every place you work produces sales or leads
    Technical difficulties cause loss in sales

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break the mold and realize that sometimes regular work standards do not always it is more like being onstage for hours and exhausting. Also while expanding take in seasonal trends for sales
