Cons: Terrible training and not enough time to get trained properly
I came from a customer service background to work at Holiday Inn Club Vacations as a Vacation Sales Agent at the inbound call center. The company has great ambitions and you can definitely make a good paycheck BUT, you have to know your stuff. If you don't have prior sales experience, you're already a step behind and there's little to no room for error. I was only there for 9 weeks and let go for poor production. The training you get is not at all what you need to survive. You need to make the pitch your own with the help of the supervisors. Be cautious before taking this job if offered. You're just a number to them.
The work environment is exceptional. The leadership of the managers is outstanding. They truly do care about you. The compensation plan is tremendous. You'll make anywhere from $17 per hour and a bad week to upwards of $100 per hour on a great week. And the product is truly one of a kind in the industry.

Pros: Discount in Hotels
Cons: They play with the wheel, lot of turovers!
I have been in the timeshare industry for 11 years and never had experiment a company that offer tons of things but I the end I felt it was false promises. The recruiter tell us that they wont hire more people until 6 months. In just 1 months they hire 2 more classes. They play with the tours and the wheel and you never know where you're are standing up. They put to much pressure and they hire shut guns to cover the bad spots. Just a few make a good money. You just have part of the chosen ones. Don't leave your work to be here! And if you do on your first day of job the will make stand you in front and they have a tradition to humiliate the new reps.

Pros: Providing quality family time.
Cons: cant really put a cost on quality time
It is a good company with greaty benifits. Interact daily with potential clients for the vacation ownership life style. The sales process from front to back and deal with credit approval financing follow up and refferal business. The management is great fantastic mentors all the way through the process. I also enjoy working with everyone in the company its like one big family everyone takes care of everyone. Honestly the job its self is great hours are very flexible pay is good I would say the best part is providing families with quality time gauranteed every year.
Pros: awesome work functions and bonus opportunities
Cons: the work location is over an hour from my home
My day starts at 7:45 to have an opportunity to take a family on tour of our 1500 acre resort and to show them the benefits of vacation ownership.... I have learned a lot about emotional sales and asking second and third level questions to find dominant buying motives.. I still have a lot to learn but the management staff tries to teach and work with those they see potential in.. The hardest part of the job is that I am an analytically person trying to make an emotional sale and as for the most enjoyable portion of the job it has to be the hours an average day is from 8:00 till around 2:00. you can get spoiled working those hours..
