    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Professional and clean work environment, motivated leadership

    Cons

    Sales staff receives very little vacation time over the first 2 years...zero time in first year. Ironic for a company that wants their sales staff to sell VACATIONS.

    Advice to Management

    Give your sales staff at least one week vacation and free weekends/stays at the resorts. They are after all selling your product. Help them help you.

    Pros

    The comradery you build with your team is unsurpassed. You quickly become a tight family and you wish the very best for each other.

    Cons

    The message of "You can make tons of money here" is preached daily, and the result is that you actually don't. After 4 weeks, you go into a 100% commission situation. What they don't tell you in the beginning is that even when you FINALLY get a deal, it's very possible that the customer can back out of it and you get no commission at all. During the interview, we're told that the average sale is $10,000, when in fact it's more like $4,000. 7% commission on that once a week is NO MONEY (that is, if you actually get a deal a week and it doesn't cancel.) Also, I don't know HOW IN THE WORLD their marketing department thinks, but more than 90% of the people who come in are BROKE and cannot afford the program. There's no strategic marketing whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Be more realistic with the staff to maintain trust. Do more targeted marketing to bring in guests who can likely afford the program.
