    I worked at Silverleaf Resorts part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free Polo
    $12 starting
    Good college job

    Cons

    No training at all
    Expected to lie to make a deal
    Terrible managers / supervisors
    Management has no integrity
    Favoritism
    Long commutes to events.
    No fuel reimbursement
    Canceling shifts half way through to save the company money.

    I understand this type of direct marketing and outside sales. If management would take the time to educate everyone on their roles, they wouldn't have such a high turnover rate. Also management should take a step back and reevaluate their moral's as telling lead generators and sales reps to lie is just down right disgusting. Take employee's locations into consideration when scheduling events as an hour and a half commute is a tad bit ridiculous.

    Also don't wrestle with employees and exchange sexually proactive material while working at the sales table. It is sexual harassment and simply unprofessional. Don't lie to employees about the leads and sales generators, we are smarter than the average bear.

    Advice to Management

    Develop an effective training program that will educate Lead Generators and Sales Representatives on their assigned tasks and duties. Make sure all the information that you provide during the interview process is truthful an accurate.

    I have been working at Silverleaf Resorts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can make some money if you send a whole bunch of business in. You can expect to get paid on less than half. But you can make a decent buck.

    Cons

    Past experiences with silverleaf taint current sales opportunities. Shark pit, every man for himself. Male dominated management. Sexual harassment prevails among the troops, even from management. Mysterious credit scores and other "reasons" to cancel business you send in seriously affect paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture. Expect something more than numbers from your employees - and don't treat them like a number.
