    Pros

    It's a great company, with great benefits!! People don't leave the company , they leave the management !!!

    Cons

    Leave the Wheel alone!! STOP THE LOVE LINE!!
    You are ALWAYS blocked from the best tours source ( the blocks, is the way they found to manipulate the rotation, without been so obvious )
    Stop giving the best tours to only 4 reps!!
    GET OUT the front desk when wave starts( let them do their job)
    STOP letting the "top" reps pick their tours a day before!!

    Advice to Management

    STOP MANIPULATING THE TOURS!!
    I wish someone big at Marriott could read this.. Somebody needs to STOP what is going on at GRANDE VISTA Sales site !!

    Pros

    Most of the hourly employees were nice. Room discount are pretty good. There is some room for growth. Few manager were nice other not so nice

    Cons

    Cant believe such a large company charges employees for food. I even witnessed them reselling food to employees food that was left over from banquets. Management need to loosen up can be disrespectful to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Good place to learn

    Pros

    Honestly the only Pro to this company is the great discounts you get on hotels!

    Cons

    Where do I begin?
    When you get hired they tell you that you make vacation dreams come true, that is literally a lie! There is very little inventory for the owners to book! The owners are rude and treat you horribly, every call you get is a angry owner who just screams at you! Out of the 15 systems they have you working on they don't work half of the time, most of the time the website is down for the owners to use! Upper management does not like when you tell an owner the systems are down becasue it looks bad on them. When the Que is 200 calls in deep upper management will sit in one office and listen to calls all day and email you on what you could of done better. The scheduling department is a joke! They don't know what they are doing half of the time you have to correct them. This company will play favorites especially if you go to the same Mormon church! There is a lot of office politics when it comes to upper management most of it is back stabbing and talking badly about others. The company will change something and wait till the last minute to train you or don't train you at all.
    They had a gas leak in the building it took them two hours to evacuate the building and that was after people started getting really sick! The came around not asking us if we were OK but if a news crew came that we should not say anything about the leak and it was only a drill!
    It is very hard to grow within the company and it is not worth the pay!
    You are only a number to them not a hard working employee and they make it very clear you can be easily replaced!

    Advice to Management

    Maybe instead of caring about how good you look in your pretty little offices you should come out and converse with your hard working employees and make them feel appreciated!

    Pros

    Good hours, decent pay, friendly associates.

    Cons

    General Manager who is absolutely clueless. Corporate Food & Beverage is too hands on. They don't understand how to run the business properly. The GM cared more about his outlook with the corporate team then actually being involved in day to day matters in property. The general manager had no idea how to run a proper business and cared more about what other vacation clubs were doing. General manager would promote people internally into positions they had no business being qualified for.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the general manager and actually listen to associate feedback. Stop micromanaging.

    Pros

    Located in a beautiful resort oasis in the middle of the desert, you'll find yourself surrounded by lush green golf courses and swaying palm trees with the San Jacinto mountains as the perfect picturesque backdrop. Even the offices are very esthetically-pleasing.

    Cons

    The pay is not what they promise. In the same exact way they teach you to be sly with customers, they con you into believing you'll make a ton of easy money.

    Advice to Management

    Get real with your employees (and your customers for that matter).

    Pros

    Lots of time off and short work hours

    Cons

    Managers are either Bi-Polar or Sleazy trying to get into the pants of young women

    Advice to Management

    Fire the management staff and replace them with management from a professional industry. This is a sleazy industry.
