    Pros

    Great leadership staff and everyone is positive. Weekly training and open door policy; everyone works as a team to help achieve sales goals

    Cons

    Disparity between what marketing tells tours and what you are trying to do
    Draw pay

    Advice to Management

    Better communication between marketing to bring in more qualified tours and to stop lying to customers. Change the khaki pants

    There are no cons for this company!

    Advice to Management

    I started in January this year for the Field Recruiting Internship! And all I can say is I learned so much! I also gain so much experience for when I graduate from college in May. The environment and the people that works in the the Marketing department are great! If you looking to gain experience and have a fun job Silverleaf Resorts is the place. You wont be disappointed!

    Pros

    Everyone gets hired. The ongoing training really helps to assure success in this company.

    Cons

    Nine dollars an hour plus commission seems like a small amount when working for a multi-million dollar company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites. Reward hard work not entertainment value.

    Pros

    I have worked for this company for just about 3 years now and I can honestly say I have developed so much as an individual as well as in my professional career. Silverleaf Resorts has provided me with the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of the timeshare business from entry level field work to running the marketing office. I have received nothing but compassion and motivation from my Director of Marketing in the NYK market. Scott is an amazing boss to work for and has helped me more than any employer I have ever worked for in my career.

    -Flexibility
    -Caring office staff and managers
    -On the job training
    -Not only will you improve your selling skills with this line of work, but the staff does all they can to break you out of your shell and become a stronger, more indepedent individual
    -If you work your butt off you will reap the rewards

    Cons

    -This job is NOT for everyone. If you are lazy, content with busy work, or otherwise unengaged while at work - this is not for you. This job is for HUNGRY & dedicated individuals that are constantly looking to make more money.

    Advice to Management

    If more low producers & problem employees were weeded out on a regular basis it would improve the reputation of the company a whole lot.

    Pros

    - Flexible schedules
    - Weekly pay + commission (can make a lot of money)
    - Benefits Offered if Full-Time
    - Small business feel even though working for a large successful company
    - Access to fun events
    - Opportunity for growth
    - Bonuses
    - Great team environment
    -Great Work-Life Balance

    As another Recruiting Intern wrote and I agree with her: This company is designed for those that can work at a fast pace and also can overcome moments of boredom. Event Sales Agents and Event Marketing Reps need to be people with lively personalities and people who can quickly overcome their fears. Those employees in these positions need to be outgoing and feel comfortable engaging and speaking with all types of people. As a Recruiting Intern, I face much of the same. I have to be lively and unafraid, in order to recruit quality candidates for my company. Other than that, I love my experiences here, best company, Director, and Field Marketing Recruiter ever!!!

    Cons

    Although the commission may appear or seem hard to obtain since it is a salary vs. commission pay base, it is actually not difficult to obtain at all if you come to work and do the best that you can.
    Because there is a $12 base rate for Event Marketing Promotion Representatives or if commission accumulated is higher, I do not believe there are any cons to the pay at all.

    Advice to Management

    No advice thus far, the Field Marketing Recruiter for NY Terri Hiltz is my direct supervisor whom I report directly to and she is really wonderful to work for. She is motivating, encouraging, very fair, and has such a positive attitude and energy.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, they schedule me baded on my availability. Great wage, entry level position (promotions agent) stars at $12 per hour. No experience necessary. Easy job, just come to work in a good mood and have fun with your customers. Great bosses. Our Director is the nicest boss ever. Even tho he is upper management he makes us all feel important and we all have his cell phone # if we ever need anything from him.

    Cons

    If the weather is bad some outside events can get cancelled. (Who wants to work when it is raining anyway)

    Advice to Management

    None so far. I am happy here. .Every step from the day the hr lady called me up til now has been a positive experience. I even have a few friends that I am going to see if they want to work here too .

    Pros

    I enjoy working with a dynamic and devoted Marketing team. The events in the east texas area are exciting to attend and everyone works hard. Not only do we have full support from our Director, but she also is dedicated and motivated to keep the team strong. The workplace is positive and the money is awesome too. Great place to work if you want to make money and have a blast at work.

    Cons

    Must have reliable transportation to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep improving the team in the Tyler Market. Hire the best.
