Was my first experience as a pool bartender, really enjoyed being out doors.
Bartender (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FL1 October 2017
Bluegreen was a great company to work for, bartending outdoors was a great experience.The weather was a downfall in the summer time due to all the rain. Time shares were fun there were a lot of families on vacation and already in good spirits. Fun company to work for.

Fish Tank can Occupy your no traffic
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Auburn, NY29 September 2017
Leads are horrible to produce sales, Sales and traffic are not at the Finger Lakes Mall. Management doesn't show to work or lead the team. Corporate restructuring has degraded the sales and amount of people we are able to talk to. Unrealistic goals for a small store.
Pros
30 hour weeks, full benefits after 90 days
Cons
No Sales

A great job of younger people
Guest relations lead (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FL25 September 2017
Bluegreen is a good job for a younger person with no children, management isn't that great. I've been told by management they don't care about anything that happens as long as they get paid. There is no culture diversity what's so ever, and they are not willing to hire anyone other than people of their own culture. Several employees were hired based on looks and not work ethics and capabilities of performing job requirements. The supervisors expect you to do their work as well as your own.

Fun place to work
Frontline Sales Executive (Current Employee) –  Myrtle Beach, SC21 September 2017
Great atmosphere and in general the people there are a pleasure to be around. The product is the most fun product to sell, and those that truly believe in themselves and the benefits of the product do the best.

Not for everyone
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FL20 September 2017
Takes a certain sales shark to love it here, but if that's what you are, come get your chum. Laid back work environment when off a table, cut-throat when on a table.

Guest Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Gatlinburg, TN14 September 2017
The hardest part of this job is you have no management backing, poor management . Team building is lacking, team is torn down and never lifted up. Management yells at you from desk instead of asking you face to face or calling you to come to office. Core values are not given to employees, no respect to employees. If employee has done something wrong and is written up for it, the management does not listen to why the occurrence happened or what lead up to it, always one sided, employee never listen too.
Pros
benefits, 20 vacation days a year, discounts for vacation stays
Cons
no advancement up, always hire's outside never inside

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, IN6 September 2017
Does not care about the employees. They have you lie to the policy holders. You lie to the potential share holders. They scam people to get timeshares and you lie to cover there lies.

No real good money, just another one next in line
Sales Representative and Customer Service (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TX1 September 2017
When you can't meet your sales in one week they are already looking for new people to hire to fire you, you can make 5 sales in one day and the next several get none, really hard to make a promised pay, they make you train and keep learning if not making any sales, usually because of the manager and if the manager can't get their employees to sell he will get set to fire also, you will get a lot of yes and no's from people. Not for everyone just maybe an experienced sales man but a good foot in the door to practice maybe
Pros
Paid time off
Cons
No real good money

Salesmen only
Senior Vacation Specialist (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, IN31 August 2017
Bluegreen is a timeshare sales company.
Agents take calls from timeshare owners wanting to book vacations.
Before 2008 BG was 100% committed to customer service and making their timeshare owners happy.
After 2008 BG changed it's strategy and focused 100% on sales.
Don't be fooled if you go to work here, you are NOT a customer service agent. You are a salesman. You are required to force a number of timeshare unrelated products on the customers and harshly penalized if you don't make the sale.
If you're a salesman you will prosper at BG. If not, look elsewhere.
Pros
benefits, work environment, perks, pay
Cons
sales, NO customer service, management

discount vacation locations

location, constant phone connection

You were rewarded if you worked hard and made your sales
Training and Development and Lead Generation (Former Employee) –  Concord, NC25 August 2017
It's a great place to work if you like a challenge in sales. It will definitely make or break you. In order to make your numbers its a lot of long hours. Lots of training. Management was easy to work with.
The stressful part was the lack of help.
Pros
Great money
Cons
no work life balance

Good for Retiree, not so much for most others.
Front Line Sales (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NV23 August 2017
Good job if your retired or just looking for something to do. Do not do this job if you have bills and trying to survive. Don't get me wrong, some people have the gift and can make a lot of money here. However 99% of the people that walk in there starting employment will be gone within 6 months. Vets despise new people cause they know each time a new class of employee's come in, those vets who are near the bottom on sales will be terminated to make room for the new class. This is not unique to BG though, it's pretty much through out the timeshare industry. Blue green does make it a positive environment for the most part while your there. So that is a plus. Good luck.
Pros
Lots of locations should you want to transfer.
Cons
They want you to attend training classes after you clock out? Im pretty sure that's illegal.
