    Pros

    Unlimited income when the phones are ringing. Unlimited overtime. Great CEO.

    Cons

    They go through periods where the leads just aren't there. They periodically overhire and then they have more people than leads and its a commission only job so no leads no income.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even out your hiring practices. Try to reduce turnover. Keep the agents that you have happy.

    I worked at Vacations To Go

    Pros

    If you work there as a travel agent, you don't have to look for your own leads. Compared to most agency I believe there is more opportunities for sales here

    Cons

    Depending on what department you work in they micro-manage you. I felt like I was grade school again, being told something when we casually talked to a neighboring coworker, even though we were getting our work done.
