Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Myrtle Beach, SC – November 11, 2015
A typical day at work was always being productive I have learned customer relations My manager was awesome Co-workers was all at team player The hardest part of the job, I don't feel there was any The most enjoyable part of my job was working with great people
I worked at Bluegreen Vacations for 11 months and worked 6 days a week for 7 of those months. I wasn't allowed to take any of my PTO time off because the mgr couldn't keep anyone working there for any length of time.Most of the turnover was because they couldn't male their required sales so they were terminated. I ended up leaving the company and even though I wasn't ever allowed to take any PTO time off they told me I had lost it. Stated to me was use it or lose it and you lost it. Wow they don't care about their people. You are just a number to them.
Good health insurance
Lack of respect and consideration of employees. Just a number to them.

Overall a great place to work. A family oriented environment but steady on the grind of accomplishing the task at hand. When dealing with sales/commission career there is always going to be challenges.
Over see a department of 6 people My team was a great hard working team, everyone got along. The most complicated obstacle I had to over come was learning how to balance between work and home. Most enjoyable part of my job was working with my team. We worked hard and always got our jobs completed on time.

I enjoyed my time with Bluegreen Vacations, I appreciate them for my first work experience in the hospitality industry. I learned a lot about myself and how I can interact well with customers and employees.
In House Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Charleston, SC – September 5, 2015
Great company to work for. Growing and upgrading a lot of their resorts. Offers great benefits and people are great to work with. Only draw back is lack of job security if you have a slow month in sales. Other than that...excellent!!!
Marketing Representative (Former Employee) – Olathe,KS – July 22, 2015
Selling vacation packages with a timeshare presentation. Pitching people and overcoming any objections they have. Listening to what people are looking for in a vacation. Closing the sale in a timely manner. Management is isn't what it used to be when I initially started. The hardest part was being micromanaged. The constant no's and negative comments about the timeshare. A lot of people will waste your time and not buy. The most enjoyable part would be selling vacations for families to enjoy.
Paid vacations, decent comissions, healthcare.
Short breaks, micromanges employees, no job security. Cancellations and timeshare constant complaints can be challenging.
Extremely unprofessional management! A director of the department I work for thinks its acceptable to belittle and make fun of associates in front of others....and then laughs with them about it!!! I have never experienced such an unprofessional manger throughout my whole career. I would NOT recommend working in this company to anyone! Any manager who thinks that this is acceptable behavior to show to fellow associates should not be in a management position and should be disciplined for her actions!! Bluegreen Vacations, you really need to review your management team!
"Share Happiness" is the company's motto. More like "Share making fun of other employees"!! I will be leaving this joke of a company as soon as possible.
I expect that a member from the HR team will respond to this review and request that we meet to discuss this further. Will they really do anything about it? Most likely not!
