    Pros

    Not too difficult, opportunity to make around 34 an hour with commissions. Paid vacation. Fast paced sales environment with fun management and colleagues. Sales manager is very understanding and on your side.

    Cons

    The hours are awful and take up the whole day, the pressure is high, and the pay is somewhat inconsistent.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Competitve Pay, Challenging work

    Cons

    Nepotistic management practices, limited upward mobility. When times get tough, terminations are quick, yet executive bonuses still roll out

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the dead wood. "Hide and do nothing new" is the safest way to extend careers, which is unhealthy for the business

    Pros

    The benefits (medical, dental, vision, 401K) are great.

    Cons

    If you're in a commission position, such as sales or marketing, it's a dog eat dog world, and no one would even thing twice about stabbing you in the back. If you want to get into management, it's all based on who likes you and doesn't. If you're in management and want to advance, it's also all about who sucks up the most.

    Pros

    The company is very welcoming and make you feel at home and comfortable. They go all the way for their guests and associates. They have daily meeting updates to notify everyone of important news and to give others credit for their hard work.

    Cons

    It is a time share, and there is not as much tipping. Only sales gets commission or bonuses. The hours are not stable. Someone has to be at the desk 24 hours a day.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to grow within the company.

    Cons

    Pay is not comparable to other Las Vegas properties, especially with the amount of work and different tasks you have on your plate.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay.

    Pros

    I worked under John Waller North Myrtle Beach, SC and he was a great boss & leader. If you have the opportunity to have him on your table....he is a CLOSER D.O.N.E. !!!!

    Cons

    The tours are not better qualified, they should have to SHOW income to get in the building

    Advice to Management

    only schedule one tour on days when kids are off school, employees have families also
