Guest Service Representative (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – October 15, 2018
Great company to work for. David Seigel definitely cares about his employees. There are rewards and reward ceremonies. The commission and bonuses are more than generous. I would love to go back but I need a little more savings first.
Everyone is a pleasure to work with and for, parties, reward ceremonies, great pay
Employee focused work environment with lots of advancement opportunities
Front Office Manager - Front Desk (Current Employee) – Williamsburg, VA – October 11, 2018
Westgate is a fantastic company to work for that I am proud to be a part of. From line level to upper management everyone works hard to take care of our guests. Every benefit imaginable is offered and employees are always given lots of opportunity to prove themselves and advance. Meet lots of people from all over the world and build friendships and bonds with your team members that will last a lifetime.
Assistant General Manager (Former Employee) – Branson, MO – October 4, 2018
I worked for different companies, but Westgate is the worst to work for. They expect managers to work long hours, while General manager leave early. There is no communication whatsoever and favoritism. If General manager doesn’t like you, they will just throw you out.
Empresa agradável de trabalhar, muito flexível, GM humano
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Summit County, UT – October 4, 2018
Durante o tempo em que trabalhei em Westgate fui muito bem acolhida. Meu supervisor, Beau Bryan, era. uma pessoa muito amável, ajudava ativamente os funcionários e os inspirava a serem melhores. Foi uma época muito feliz. A parte mais difícil a desordem na comunicação, visto que muitos funcionários contratados não falavam inglês com fluência, o que por vezes prejudicava na delegação de tarefas.
Fun, busy and lots of history because it was once the largest hotel in Las Vegas!
Off Property Consultant (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – October 3, 2018
I had a good time working there. Great Management and good co-workers. Busy, fast-paced environment! I also interacted with lots of great guests staying at or just passing thru the Resort. Lots of scheduled Tournaments and Professional Conferences. I also was an Elvis Presley Tour Guide. In 1969 - 1976 he was contracted to stay and perform exclusively at the International Hotel twice a year and the whole Penthouse 30th floor was designed according to his request (36,000 sq ft). I met lots of famous people, so I would say that is was the highlight of my time at Westgate Resort. Lots of history and nostalgia!
There is no job security nor any benefits as a commissioned representative. High turnover rate. You are only as good as your last sale. Only look at numbers. Company does not care about the employees. The training is good, but very outdated.
FRONT DESK MANAGER (Former Employee) – Park City, UT – September 24, 2018
I learned a lot at Westgate, I started as a front desk agent, I learned all that I could and I eventually was promoted to the Front Desk manager. It was a little stressful at times but with everybody that I worked with, it was worth it.
Licensed Real Estate Salesperson (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – September 22, 2018
Managers are terrible, work environment is terrible, horrible place to work. On positive side the training is excellent as are the trainers, but once you get assigned to a resort, well "welcome to the cut throat Jungle"
Great Training, Great Trainers.
Steal your Money, if you leave then forget about getting commissions due, Management from top to bottom are worst in timeshare business.
WR is a good company, despite its many flaws. The management team is the best thing going for this company. The company has a strong focus on quotas that are, sometimes, impossible to achieve even for the best of us.
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – September 15, 2018
Unless you like lying to other people and you do not care about money. Westgate steals your money with the draw, also very unfair, they give you more families to only top5, and they do not even give you same fair opportunities and expect you to sell like top 5. If your tour gets canceled they blame you for everything, and when you call the manager over to your table they are slow as a sloth and your families get mad and they still blame you for not keeping your families. They blame you for everything and always compare with top 5. This job makes you feel like a loser unless you sell everyday. The managers also say they are there to help but always blaming you for not getting a deal. I would not even recommend this job to my enemy.
I love working for this company. I have met great people along the way both co-works as well as customers. Unfortunately managers and directors have a very bad culture going on that affects the workers who are responsible and like to hold others accountable for their actions. The “buddy system” kills the work environment. In the last few months things have been improving.
