The key words here are "used to". Basically, I found the Ad via craigslist (which honestly seems to be a hub for scam job listings) and they basically posed the job position as entry level work for a travel agency and that they needed new employees in January.
I submitted my resume to them via. e-mail and they told me to come in for an interview. I show up to the interview and they hired me right then and there. They told me to come in for training the next day for 5 hours.
I made some sales that day, and I was happy. But I think that's part of the deception of the Blue Green Resort system. They not only scam people into buying useless timeshares, but they decieve their own employees. They hire everyone and tell them nothing about the company, how it works, or what's entailed.
We were given scripts to use on everyone we called. There were piles of leads that we would call to get people to buy the timeshares. I always wondered why there was such emphasis placed on "rebuttals" and why the company used these rebuttals to get credit cad information. It was only when I saw this website and all the complaints that it all made sense...it was a scam.
Basically, it's a position where the employees don't make any money unless they make sales. And all of the sales people are taught to be heartless *** and sweet talk peope out of their money.
I couldn't be that heartless *** so I quit three weeks ago and I'm looking for work. Basically, Blue Green hires people desperate for work and money which definitely applied to me at the time as I was fresh out of college and in a new city.
I'm just telling you that if someone calls you telling you that you have been "selected" (we were told not to use to the words "won" or "contest", but with the way the script was worded, it could easily confuse someone into thinking that they won a vacation...which was the point.) for a cruise or vacation that you don't remember signing up for...just hang up the phone.
