    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Vacations To Go.

    Interview Details

    I had one in-person interview at their Houston office. It went well and they offered me the job by phone a few days later. I was considering another offer at the time and asked for a written offer letter and a few more days to decide. The manager then called me back to say they were withdrawing the offer as they needed someone immediately. I was a new grad and pretty naive at the time, but even then I knew it was a big red flag and very unprofessional.

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer was rescinded when I asked for a written offer letter and a few more days to decide.

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Vacations To Go in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    2 Interviews, "always get 2 looks at all agents". First interview is with human resources, they determine if you will interview with the director of sales. Nothing difficult, both interviews were very focused on job history and daily activities of past positions. It appeared as if they wanted to determine how well you managed time, dealt with customer concerns as well as what made you successful vs any of your competitors. You will have a writing test to see how you will reply to an interested traveler as well as a math test. Figuring % of commissions to be received, you can use a calculator. Credit & background check.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me the corporate story of your past employer, corporate origin and how you were different vs "brand x"? Expect to be grilled about daily activities and you should be fine.   View Answer

    Application Details

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Vacations To Go in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    I saw the ad on monster.com and submitted my resume, I followed up by finding the local office phone number and asking for human resources. The person in the office pulled up my resume while I was on the phone and set up my interview for two days later. The interview was relatively relaxed and informative. I got a call back that evening for my next interview two days later. They seem to have a two part interview requirement. At the end of my second interview I was given a math and language skills test, directly related to the job. End of day they called and made me an offer to start in the Monday training class contingent on a criminal background check.

    It's a 90 day guarantee with a lower commission rate then is all commission at a higher rate. Six months until benefits become available.
