    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    I have yet to find any thus far

    Advice to Management

    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 first hired

    Cons

    computer reservation software ver outdated, pre-WINDOWS, a lot of codes and keystrokes to remember. Initial training on software minimal, mostly on the job.

    Advice to Management

    Need to update reservation software or give more thorough initial training for new employees. High frustation level of new employees which can cause a high turnover.

    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 computer software for reservations very outdated, pre-WINDOWS, have to remember a lot of codes and key strokes to work on a reservation for the time share promotion program.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 Management

    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

    Pros

    Great product and great resorts

    Cons

    They promised that they will pay you but it's like working for free. They have a draw system that even if you make sales they deduct those from your paycheck. I though slavery era was over!

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of draw and pay your employees you jerks! Slavery is over...having a $8 pay check for weeks of work is disgraceful...

    Pros

    Large income potential for those that are extremely successful

    Cons

    Company requires you to pay back hourly wage (minimum wage) from the sales you make
    Work on most weekends Saturday and Sunday

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the '"draw" so your employees who are not outlandishly successful can still make a decent living too
