    I worked at Wyndham Vacation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent compensation, great 401K company match, full benefits. Very rewarding and challenging sales experience. Fun and laid-back office culture. Many days you're done early in the afternoon. The director and VP in Nashville are phenomenal leaders and very fun to work for.

    Cons

    You will work every single weekend. You will work on Christmas Eve. It's a vacation resort, so you work when everyone is on vacation. If you want to make a lot of money, you will often work on your days off. Constant changes, and often very little notice about mandatory work functions. You must be very adaptable and willing to roll with the punches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Monitor your managers and how they are treating each rep individually.

    Pros

    They deliver on pretty much everything they promise. They will try to hype up the potential salary and spin everything positively when it comes to the commissions pay structure, but of course they do. They'll hire you if you look employable and are honest.

    Cons

    The draw is terrible if you have a dry spell. There are constantly things changing, which can be a con if you're used to coming in and never changing day after day. They ask you to do a lot of work you are not paid for in your commission. Overall the commissions and bonuses are very lucrative, but you've gotta be a great salesman.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although I work relatively short hours, I'd like to get paid actual money for the constant stuff I'm required to do that has nothing to do with the selling. At my office you guys have created a very good culture though, I look forward to coming into work the majority of the days.

    Excellent benefits from paying 100% college tuition to discounts on home decor and furnishings to electronics and oil changes, etc. Will launch you into the career of your dreams.

    I have yet to find any thus far

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Our "working class" employees such as housekeeping, maintenance, as well as custodial deserve the respect that us higher chain employees receive.

    Pros

    very good overall support when getting started

    Cons

    not enough technical training on computer reservation system when first getting started, it is almost all on the job training. computer software for reservations very outdated, pre-WINDOWS, have to remember a lot of codes and key strokes to work on a reservation for the time share promotion program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    either update the computer software for reservations or give more intensive training to new employees. the frustration level for many new employees trying to learn the software is very high, which causes a lot of turnover
