We went to this presentation with real interest and wanted to gain some knowledge. The gifts were secondary. Jason presented the program and again we were interested. We got into the back with Stacy and she could not answer any questions we had. She kept yelling RANDY. I guess he was in charge. Extremely rude, we lost interest pretty fast. We told them we were not interested 12 differant ways before he went to register us for our gifts for coming.

Thirty minutes later we told them they could keep there gifts, because we were leaving. They basically through a letter at us to mail in for our gifts. I am going to mail it in, but not holding my breathe. I figure they owe me and my wife three hours of our life back. This company is high presure sales and unless you become rude back will not let up. Things they are "you are just here for the gifts" They side step questions or call a superviser to talk in circles. You have to decide "Right Now" when you walk out the opportunity to join goes with you.

Not sure it maters

AUTHOR: Kelly - (United States of America)

Dont know what Kelley exactly ment but i guess it doesnt really mater does it?  I think most of the people comenting about GVN are freakd out by there practices.  learning they have somebody working there that has a passed history of financial crimes doesnt make the company look any better

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds


AUTHOR: anonymous - (United States of America)

I guess I'm confused then. This GVN post was originally done in 2011. Did this other Stacy work 2 jobs? LOL sounds like Kelly has a personal issue and not a GVN issue. Kelly do you have an experience with GVN or are you just interested in talking about this one specific person?

Stacy Barz

AUTHOR: Kelly - (United States of America)

Stacy Barz is a current Global Vacation Network employee in their Grand Rapids office.  That is her mugshot from an arrest for embezzling from her previous employer.  She plead guilty to that crime 2 weeks ago and is awaiting sentencing.

#4 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Stacy Priest

AUTHOR: anonymous - (United States of America)

I am a former employee of GVN. This is not Stacy Priest from GVN circa 2011. Also to the poster, check employment dates and court records before slandering.  Although someone is arrested, it doesn't make them guilty. Furthermore, people in upper management positions have had their share of DUIs and such. Apparently you would rather sling mud than check facts which I encourage everyone on here to do.

First of all, you went to a time share presentation; ofcourse they will pressure you to buy. Secondly, your free item cost you your time and really did you expect something for nothing. GVN is selling resorts through Global Connections. The resorts are actually bookable but don't think you are ever going to get something for nothing. By the way, I'm not sure (because I am a customer) that there is anyone there named Jason....might want to check your facts and use of English language.

Good grief

AUTHOR: Lorenzen - (U.S.A.)

Of course it's a high pressure sales environment.  How could you not know this ?????  ALL such presentations are.  Geeezzz.  And here's a tip - GO BACK TO SCHOOL and learn the English language.  Your lack of spelling and grammatical skills are the real rip off here.  Misanthrope.
