    Pros

    Great benefits, supportive management team, personal growth, advancement opportunities. They genuinely want you to succeed and typically go above and beyond to help you reach your goals.

    Cons

    Call center culture can create competition and favoritism among employees and management. Working in a call center is not all that great anywhere, though.

    I worked at Wyndham Vacation part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The attitude about the job is what makes it stand out. People are super enthusiastic.

    Cons

    Sales goals must be met, or you will be coached. No one wants you to make $8 an hour which is what you make when you have no sales. Downside is waiting to get a hold of people and when you do they hang up or don't listen.

    Pros

    People are fantastic, environment is positive, and the benefits are amazing.
    It is an energizing and positive workplace. Fantastic people to work with and even though the company is quite large, you do not feel like a number.We get added benefits of vacation packages and that is a benefit
    you can share with the entire family.People who have been there awhile are more than willing to work with you and help you understand the processes involved. I would recommend this job to friends and family.

    Cons

    I live an hour from work and wish it was closer. The early morning commute is fine but the late afternoon commute gets long. We are so busy that sometimes we do not have time for a break.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great workplace environment and fair managers. Communication is great but could be improved on.

    Pros

    i would think that the pros of this job would have to be the fact that there is unlimited income potential to be made if you actually sell a lot.

    Cons

    marketing does not tell the truth to the customers so they automatically come in angry and looking to leave as soon as possible, it is a very difficult sale.
