I worked at Westgate Resorts full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good money to be made

Cons

General manager told me not to worry about becoming a sales rep. He told me " to stay and learn my position well".

Advice to Management

They should encourage their employees to advance and not kill their dreams by telling them to stay in their position. (Even though I know better).

    Pros

    2 week training allows you to learn what you need to know to sell their product. Good way for people with little or no education to make a living, so long as they don't mind lying to get the product sold.

    Cons

    Product is worthless so they have to bait-and-switch their presentation...you're pretty much selling air. Anyone can look around on the internet and find deals on travel for less than they'd pay annually for a timeshare. Literally the only qualifications to work there as a sales rep are passing a background check and a drug test. The people make the job - and the people here made the job less than desirable.

    Advice to Management

    Make your managers dress like professionals when they ask unsuspecting old people for $15k for a borderline useless product.

    I worked at Westgate Resorts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Location, staff, dealing with wide variety of people personalities from guests to fellow workers.

    Cons

    Did not have proper equipment to do job effectively. Company was not very "employee friendly". Everyone seemed to walk around "on pins and needles". No pat raises given by company in more than four years at time of employment with none in foreseeable future.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees more. Show it with rewards.
