    I worked at Ocean Properties full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, options for benefits, uniforms provided, paid vacation(albeit not much). There is room for advancement.

    Cons

    Hostile work environments, way too long chain of command, sexism and ageism very apparent. Cut back on hours making it impossible to make a living sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to keep your good employees instead of just treating them like numbers.

    Pros

    1/2 off food.
    A nice view.
    You work with a lot of people under the age of 25.

    Cons

    Minimum wage vacation after 1 year of employment.
    The health insurance is garbage.
    You get 20% off hotel stays but have to get 4 manager approvals before you can do anything.
    I guess the rules don’t apply to everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Promote within.

    Pros

    It's a job & they have some nice properties

    Cons

    Inhumane, Heartless, Souless company void of Ethics & Morals

    Advice to Management

    Be human. Get to know your staff beyond your few "favorites" in the "good 'ol boys club". Restructure your entire Sales Organization to bring the company from the 80's to 2017. Restructure your salary guidelines so that employees aren't required to work 45+ hours per week to reach their annual salary promised, increase your mileage reimbursement beyond 31 cents/mile, increase reimbursement of breakfast, lunch & dinner when traveling beyond $26/day. Have humility and conduct employee surveys company wide and address issues. Know that your employees (and not just the select favorites) are you best asset and treat them as such.

    I worked at Ocean Properties full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    casual dress code. That's it.

    Cons

    -You don't get holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas off (they are open 365 days a year)
    -Low pay
    -Barely any breaks
    -Very little training to prepare you for actually working the phones
    -Overwhelming

    Advice to Management

    Besides more training, I would suggest better incentives to keep employees there longer, maybe not be open on thanksgiving or christmas if possible.

    Pros

    They let you do your job. If you "overstated" your resume your going to get caught. You've been hired to do the job so thats what they expect. There is no micro-managing here but if your trying to "wing it" you'll be caught quickly. They value longevity and loyalty therefore they take very good care of you if you take care of them. Compensation package is very fair and comparable to all other companies. If you are fortunate to be placed in the upper management team this is a company you will stay with for a long time.

    Cons

    Only con I have is the lack of the 401K match.
