Timeshare giant, Wyndham Destinations, has announced it will be adding 140 jobs to its Orlando call centre, as part of a drive to market new members to its timesharing products.
Wyndham reports strong growth and success in gaining new members for both Club Wyndham and WorldMark by Wyndham. The additional 140 call centre staff confirms Wyndham is attempting a mass sales drive, to entice new owners.
In adding the additional staff to its headquarters, the company is nearly doubling the size of its offices. Wyndham also announced it is investing $4.5 million to upgrade their office space. The timeshare giant is the second largest company headquartered in Orlando. With a huge workforce they employ 3,600 people in central Florida and 25,000 worldwide.
Geoff Richards, CEO of Wyndham Vacation Club said in a statement: “Orlando is our home, and we continue to invest in our growth here as we look to put the world on vacation. The timeshare industry is growing in the US and globally, and because of the concentration of experienced talent in Orlando, this is the right place for us to expand.”
Wyndham Destinations vacation clubs feature a flexible points system that allows owners to book stays at more than 220 Wyndham vacation club resorts or exchange at 4,300 affiliated resorts in 110 countries with the RCI exchange network.
People who enter into timeshare agreements often find it difficult to keep up with the mounting maintenance fees and simply cannot afford it any longer. They may also find that the timeshare no longer suits their needs and simply want to end the contract. There are too many individuals who are willing to take advantage of timeshare owners and offer fake products, along with timeshare exit schemes. Before agreeing to any timeshare termination or exit procedure with an individual or company, seek independent advise and fully research any company you are thinking of working with.
It is also important to remember that purchasing a timeshare should NEVER be viewed as a financial investment. timeshare is an investment in lifestyle, in future holidays and family time together. There is almost no resale value to a timeshare.
The mis-selling of holiday products is, unfortunately, common practice within the holiday industry and these type of crimes often go unreported by the most vulnerable in our society and criminal convictions are few and far between.
If you have purchased a Lifestyle / Concierge Service, a timeshare or a ‘holiday points’ based product from a resort or company and feel unhappy with the service, or feel you have been mis-sold this product, please get in touch with us to discuss how we may be able to help you with a possible timeshare termination.
