    I have been working at Holiday Inn Club Vacations full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good coworkers for the most part. The location is nice. Family atmosphere. That is probably the only good things I could say.

    Cons

    Terrible work schedule. Low pay. Never know how many hours you will get each week. Also, the company does A LOT of firing.

    Advice to Management

    I would tell them that they should include every department when they do company dinners, contests, etc. It feels like if you're not in the Sales department, you do not even matter.

    Pros

    Nice co-workers, resort surroundings. Get to talk with people about vacations all day.

    Cons

    The company promises the world and delivers nothing. Deceptive practices are taught and quietly encouraged.

    Advice to Management

    Is a six figure income worth it?

    I have been working at Holiday Inn Club Vacations full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, decent perks, very fun work environment

    Cons

    The sales pitch is scripted down to the letter, eliminating any chance at sounding like yourself. Managers decide right from the start who has more potential and spends time on their tables accordingly. Just not the best environment to succeed unless you come out of training with guns blazing.

    Advice to Management

    Teach the 12 steps, ensure trainees know all the high points and bullets that you want covered, and discuss appropriate timing for trial closes (preferably without scripting the trial close). Other than those guidelines, ditch the verbatim script and let people be themselves.

    I worked at Holiday Inn Club Vacations full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The sales building is newly remodeled, the dress code is professional, there is a snack bar on property, Nice place to take walks when not working.

    Cons

    High pressure, constantly firing and hiring, good salespeople quitting because of bad management, mental manipulations, must drive tours in your own car, must memorize full script, promise holidays but don't give them off, unprofessional pitting of employees against each other, good old boy system with managers makes it difficult for sales people to voice their concerns and see results, they don't tell you when a sale kicks (cancels) so you don't know until the money does not show up in your check three weeks later.

    Advice to Management

    Stop firing and hiring. Instead take care of the quality people you do have. Don't put immature people up as trainers and managers. That will never bode well. Keep your word. If you say your employees get holidays off, don't pull the rug out from under them the day before and make them all come in. Stop impulsively giving 3 in 10's or 2 in 10's. (this means you must sell 3 out of 10 or 2 out of 10 timeshare tours or you are out.)You only tick off good salespeople. Let your salespeople show the condos that are attached to the sales center instead of making them give a 40 minute tour with all the driving in their own car. Above all, stop giving favors to those who are not selling just because the may flatter you.

    Pros

    Benefits and PTO are good

    Cons

    If your not in the in crowd or play the politics, you will advance no where. You must play to get the pay

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on employees that have poor work ethic and rewarding those that manage to just do there job once in a while( nor care about producing positive results)
