Good pay when you hit bonus...That's about it.
Pros: Good bonus pay, easy job
Cons: NO job security, NO advancement without a real estate license
Worked at Bluegreen for 7 months. Started in marketing, which was flagging people down and talking them into a "free vacation" along with a sales presentation. Marketing paid terrible, so I was moved to sales. Let's just say, it's all luck in the sales job. Unlicensed reps make $10 an hour, plus monthly commission IF you hit bonus. Bonus is fairly difficult to hit because of cancellations. Sales reps are not allowed to stay in touch with former clients and it's the sales managers responsibility to follow-up with former clients. In turn, if you have a high cancellation rate for more than two months, they will terminate you, even if your managers are following up or not. Reps with low numbers will be approached by managers and sat down and talked with on a daily basis, generally a week before termination. The managers will ensure that the rep will not lose their job if they improve their sales numbers, but the next day the rep will be approached by the director of sales and fired on the spot, with or without write-ups or any type of warning. They push reps to obtain their real estate license so they don't have to pay out the base salary. Even a licensed rep with a high cancellation rate will be terminated. Bluegreen loses a lot of great sales reps because of their way of dealing with sales numbers. I feel a sales person should not be terminated because of cancellations. After all, they did THEIR end of the job by getting the guest to sign the paperwork and submit their payment. I DO NOT recommend this job to anyone with a family that is looking for a position with job security. Sales reps are disposable workers at Bluegreen.
