Supervisor - Accounts Controls and Administration (Former Employee), Orlando Florida – February 24, 2014
Pros: excellent opportunity to learn new product, new leadership techniques.
Cons: utilized interns and associates via staffing agencies. was challenging due to limited training.
Extremely busy, fast paced, auditing of 4-6k mortgage contracts per month. Excellent opportunity to interact with employees throughout the day by working side by side. I gained extensive knowledge of the mortgage/vacation ownership business. The management team was always under pressure due to volume and staffing. We paid out a lot of OT. We were almost – more... always understaffed, but they did the best they could to support us with limited resources. The hardest part of the job was that we were understaffed and unable to hire additional headcount due to budget restraints. As leaders we spent a lot of time working as associates which gave us limited time for coaching and development. Most enjoyable was learning a new business, interacting daily with associates, peers both internal and outside sales. Getting to meet business partners and gaining understanding of how their business impacted ours. – less

Pros: health benefits, coworkers
Cons: working on weekends and holidays
Overall Wyndham is a good company to work at. A typical day at work will be calling the franchisee and working with them to getting the proper Property Management System install at the property. I have learned a great deal of customer service and how to work with the franchisee when they have questions or they are upset with something. My coworkers – more... were fun and great to work with. We supported each other and strive to achieve our goals as a department. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the franchisee when they get upset. The most enjoyable part is working with a good group of coworkers. – less

Specialist, Sustainability (Current Employee), Parsippany, NJ – January 30, 2014
Wyndham provides a great environment with great people! I would seriously label the headquarters as the "google" of New Jersey. Work/life balance is definitely there and the compensation is competitive with New York.
Customer Service (Former Employee), Aberdeen, SD – November 1, 2013
Pros: great coworkers
Cons: emotionally taxing
The most enjoyable part of my job was the work environment. I loved being able to have a good relationship with my fellow coworkers, and being able to have a set schedule each day I came into work. I also really enjoyed helping guests solve their difficulties with the hotel, and book their vacations.
The hardest part of my job by far was when I had – more... an upset guest screaming and cursing at me for something over which I had no control, and trying to calm them down while still trying to take down their information so that they could receive help with what ever difficulty they were facing. I also found it very difficult to receive calls from guests that had been living at the hotel, and were being evicted because they didn't have money for rent. – less

Activities associate (Former Employee), Orlando, FL – June 13, 2013
Pros: amazing pto
A typical day at work was doing daily activities, interacting with guests, and opening and closing the building. I learned how to work as a team and create ideas together to manage and set activities also how to make them more enjoyable for our guests. My coworkers were fun to be around and we had a good chemistry considering the team was quite small, – more... but even at a larger property it was just as pleasant. I would have to say the hardest part about working is when events had to be planned and set and handling the amount of guest we had, being that it was either a hit or miss we had to mentally prepare and physically prepare for the day. For last but not least the most enjoyable part of my job was setting events and having to come with ideas to make it as exciting and pleasurable as possible for our guest, there was honor in making something small something big for others stay. – less
