    You can make great money if you work your life away

    Cruise Agent (Former Employee) Houston, TX

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

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

    Not a Bad Place to be

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    Dependings on the position that you have

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIf 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

    ConsDepending 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.
