Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Broken Arrow, OK4 April 2017
A great company to work for. I would recommend this company and its employees to anyone. It is a fast paced sales environment that has unlimited potential. The job just didn't work with my schedule anymore.
Pros
Hourly wages plus commission
Cons
Work every weekend, late nights

Working at Bluegreen is fun and enjoyable! You must be willing to do the job to be successful, compensation is great and hard work pays off!!!
SALES MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Cabazon, CA21 March 2017
A typical day at Bluegreen is meeting new people all the time. It is fun and enjoyable.

I learned to step out of my comfort zone and talk to strangers and get to know them in just a few minutes. I learned from different people their vacation habits, wants and needs. I enjoyed the most the smiles when I shared the power of affordable vacations with the people and to know that they will be creating memories that will last a lifetime!
Management is always supportive. The hardest part of the job was to work when you are tired. I suggest that you always and I mean always take your rest.
The work culture is really neat, care, trust, passion and humility :) :) :)
Pros
Commissions are great as well as spiffs!!!
Cons
You have to work weekends and holidays - I personaly didn't mind

Decent Place to start a career
Director (Current Employee) –  USA20 March 2017
This is a good company if you are looking to improve your resume, and develop professional skills. You have constant contact with upper management, and are coached on improving over time.

The company pays less than most competitors in the industry, and has a very low glass ceiling on advancement.

Good working conditions
Telemarketer (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, IN18 March 2017
Work day is dialing and selling vacation packages to existing timeshare owners. Hours are good at 6 hours a day. Base pay nominal but money is made on commission. The place has an active atmosphere of fun and comradery with management and coworkers are always there to help. Sales training is constant. Hardest part of the job is to keep smiling and dialing if you are having a difficult day. The best part is satisfaction of reaching sales goals and helping owners book the places and times they want.
Pros
Great hours and good benifits
Cons
Sometimes tedious dialing and getting no answers or no for an answer

good job for outgoing person
Senior Vacation Specialist (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, IN7 March 2017
The typical day involved answering the phones and helping customers plan vacations and pay their bills. You get a lunch break and two other short breaks but the rest of your shift is spent on the phone talking to customers. The staff and other employees are very friendly. This is a great job for a very outgoing person.

secure large corporation with over 4000 employees
Maintenance & Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Lincoln, NH25 February 2017
Not much room for advancement here. Management not up to par in area of workplace guidelines and time management between employees. Excellent benefits as it is a large company with PTO time and etc....Workloads varied wildly from day to day, without proper control over very busy days without extra help in certain areas. Some employees friendly and helpful and others the opposite without any control over this area. Made bullying and discrimination too open without consequence.
Pros
excellent PTO and benefits package
Cons
Bad management, poor time control

Stressful
Exclusive Senior Vacation Specialist (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, IN21 February 2017
Overall it is not bad however it is more stressful then any other call center as management communication is non existent with anyone on the floor and the phone staff are always in the dark compared to what the sales sites are doing and saying.

Get Ready For Stress
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, IN15 February 2017
Out of all the jobs I've held over the years, this job by far is one of the most stressful ones I've ever had. If you're hired on as a sales rep which you most likely will be, get ready to call approximately 500-1000 people a day (not exaggerating). 90% of those people will hang up immediately, 5% of those people will cuss you and turn you inside out, 4% of those people will be interested in buying only for Bluegreen's qualifications to force you to hang up on the person, and 1% of those people will actual buy from you. The management there is focused on keeping the energy of the workplace positive because of how depressing the job gets from all the negativity spewed at you on the phones daily, and you'll be forced to back a company that has a very low BBB rating and overall terrible customer reviews. Pretty much everyone who works there are ghetto and nasty except for the management.
Pros
6 hour work days
Cons
work every other saturday, low pay, negative/depressing job

Retail Marketing Manager & Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Bossier City, LA11 February 2017
Depending on who's your direct supervisor is this could be the best job in the world or the worst. Decent pay and benefits work-life balance could do some work but overall a good position if you don't mind working weekends and holidays.
Pros
Pay, benefits, ect.
Cons
High turnover rate and always working weekends.

Great Benefits for Little Known Company
Reservationist (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FL9 February 2017
My past almost 3 years with Bluegreen Vacations has had ups and down. I never got along with management at the resort I left, but the Call Center has been better luck. However, a sales position is more strenuous than working Front Desk... so that's a real challenge. I would recommend the Call Center to anyone who is looking for a career in Timeshare Sales with the opportunity for advancement.
Pros
Benefits, Discounts
Cons
Micromanagement, High Pressure
