Front Desk Clerk (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NV – April 3, 2014
Working the front desk was always at a fast pace, I learned team work is important, communication make everything we did go well, and correct when it came to resolve anything we had to deal with, my co-worker were team players. hardest part of the job was to be consistent and versatile, we dealt with a variety of job duties. Best part of my job is taking – more... care of the guest with any questions, needs we have to offer, Is the best and I mean the best feeling I get when a guest needs a certain room, information, something I could do extra to make their stay more comfortable I'm always glad to do so, I always find a way, and the walk away knowing my name, with a smile. – less

Cons: management, pays not good either
You have a grounds keeper as Maintenance Manager with very poor people skills and very little knowledge of his job.He does know how to trim a bush though.Same way with resort manager very poor people skills and not fun to come to work for.I don't recommend this job
Sales Representative (Current Employee), Tallahassee, FL – March 26, 2014
It is a very fun job. I meet people of different walks of life and provide them the getaway of their dreams. I have learned so much about the sales industry and about different places in the United States. The management is very helpful. The hardest part is convincing the customer that investing in the vacations is a smart decision. The most enjoyable – more... part is when they come back and tell me they had a awesome trip. – less
Committed to sharing happiness with ownership and staff
Association Administrator, Resorts Management (Former Employee), Boca Raton, FL – March 25, 2014
Pros: dedication to helping other, employees benefits
Working for Bluegreen Vacations expanded my knowledge in many areas over the past 13 years including: budgets, project management, contract review. Bluegreen is an enjoyable place to work due to the enthusiaum each team member displays within their position and the willingness to go that extra step to assist each other to accomplish the main goal of – more... the core values. – less
Sales/Marketing representative (Former Employee), Hampton, VA – March 19, 2014
Pros: the excitement
Cons: job security
A typical day at work includes a fast pace environment, constantly on the move talking with customers to persuade them the quailty of the product. I learned that closing the deal is the most important part of the job and I was very good at that. The management was very shaky, more aggressive than attempting to teach which wasn't too much of a problem – more... for me cause I'm a fast learner and I can sell. I liked my co-workers (the ones that stayed). Extremely high turn over rate, I worked with ten different people in a span of two weeks sometimes. The hardest part of the job is making it to the very end of the sale, (the sale right at the fingertips) than a third party convinces the initial person not to buy whether it be financially unstable at the moment or they were on a time frame. The most enjoyable part of the job was the answer YES I WILL BUY and I got that alot. – less
By far the best company that I have ever worked for
Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee), Branson, MO – March 16, 2014
Hard working management, including senior leadership, who know how to involve themselves in the day to day functions of the operations. Cohesively functioning environment that is task focused and goal oriented, yet is able to enjoy themselves and have fun while working.
SALES ASSOCIATE/INVENTORY SPECIALIST (Current Employee), 372 E Tropicana Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89169 – February 23, 2014
Pros: motivating, fun, and challenging.
Cons: inconsistant monetarily, highly stressful at times.
Absolutely love to start the day at Bluegreen! Every morning we have assigned mentor groups that get all the associates in the productive and positive mind set. Following the groups we have a motivational meeting w/ all assosiates.I enjoy this aspect most about my current career and have learned to look for motivation and the right focused attitude – more... to take w/ me every day and to employer. My management has been inspiring and helps me mature in every way. Unfortunately and sadly this position can sometimes be inconsistent monetarily and has created some strain and stress on myself and my family. With this aspect in mind and w/ the opposite experiences and education I have learned I feel it is time for a change. – less
worn out product,"timeshare"is a bad word to customers

Cons: poor management, on your feet 7 days a week, worn out product
the company was ok. too much turnover of employees,basically this is a "door to door'sales job inside a store to sell a timeshare presentation.the word timeshare is an automatic turn off.that word should be permanently changed.
Director of Sales (Former Employee), Indianapolis, IN – December 29, 2013
Pros: a fun workplace
Cons: they find a way to let you go when you reach a certain age
Spent a little over twenty years in the Timeshare business with 10 years working at Bluegreen. I found the company and the job the best I ever had. The company culture mandated that there would be zero tolerance to misleading the prospect. Everything I did was transparent to all. The compensation was the best in the industry.
