    Advice to Management

    Millennials and older generations want to work in industries like Bluegreen, but they need opportunities to advance in their career fields. The companies current layout is old fashion and uninspiring despite our engaging town hall and other celebration center experiences. Furthermore, there are endless financial shifts that result in great in-house talent choosing to work elsewhere because of limited growth opportunities. For example, I was in my current role for over a year and repeatedly informed that I could not transition to Full-time Status because of hiring freezes. If Bluegreen incorporated job shadowing opportunities, it would allow struggling departments to get additional aid while increasing employee's job skills.

    I have been working at Bluegreen Vacations full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Full time and part time opportunities, good benefits, flexible schedule, PTO.

    Cons

    Management is extremely unorganized and always wants you to pick up their slack, managements expectations are very high for the amount of pay, some management uses manipulation and the title for upper hand tactics to get more out of employees for same amount of pay. Favoritism is a big factor in advancement in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people the way you want to be treated, pay people the way you want to be paid. Value your employees the way you want to be valued. Don't remind them with a pat on the back but with recognition, true compliments for hard work (not the back handed kind) and a good paycheck (pay raises that show that all their hard work pays off).

    I have been working at Bluegreen Vacations full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is a place to work for 3-6 months while you find an employer who will appreciate your value

    Cons

    Senior management doesn't have a clue about call center operations. The senior director has a napoleon complex and treats managers like unwanted step children. The senior manager is unqualified, struggles with gender identity and is a puppet for the senior director. Managers are stuck in the office all day gossiping with each other and complaining about work they cant do themselves. Supervisors are always agitated, short with answers and quick to snap. Training is a joke, infrequent and unengaging. Bluegreen hires unqualified candidates which only makes your job harder because the supervisors are always upset about quality. Human resources operates under distinct principles, out of site and out of mind. Pay increase means you left the company for a real job. They don't believe in face to face communication, email only. No open door policy and showing application is a joke. You get a card, when they should be cutting a bigger check, especially being in a commission based role.

    Advice to Management

    Replace your current senior leaders quick, your losing business because of the tension. Unhappy associates equals unhappy customers. Get your managers out of the office and on the floor. Train your supervisors to develop associates for the next step. Hire qualified associates for every role, don't just hand them out.

    I worked at Bluegreen Vacations full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    4 weeks paid vacation with really reasonable prices to use company properties.There is a benefit package in a world where you may not get benefits. Standard Monday through Friday 8:30-5 job.

    Cons

    Black out dates often make employee use of resorts a joke. In the corporate office, as an entry level admin, you will not have very much opportunity in front of you and you will have to fight/compete with your coworkers for recognition AND projects.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in some modern technology for things like scanning, remotely filing and payroll so that you free up some man hours of useless work and potentially tapping into truly talented and motivated individuals. Management could also learn some basic employee retention strategy.

    I have been working at Bluegreen Vacations full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, learning and development, upper management and the corporate offices have great communication skills

    Cons

    Compensations, Too many changes, more and more work keeps getting added onto the sites with no additional resources. Everyone on site is spread way to thin.

    Advice to Management

    At least once a year travel to the sites and get feedback from the associates-yes there is an annual survey, however more people will open up with a more personable experience.
