    Over 100k annually, a bit repetitive...

    Travel Counselor (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsEasy to make over 100k in your second year here (still working 40 hours a week). Most don't give it that much time, hence the negative reviews. Good training program. Management is a mixed bag, some great, some incompetent, but that's everywhere. Travel perks are amazing. If you're going to apply be aware of your phone voice and diction as that comes across on the phone. All leads are inbound and mostly pre-qualified.

    ConsNot a lot of culture. Bad schedules when you first start. You have to earn your schedule. Only closed Christmas and Thanksgiving. Some team managers micro-manage. Call center environment but better pay and perks than most.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFairly nice, but we never see them with the exception of team managers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company to make a lot of money

    Customer Service Manager (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsTravel agents can make a lot of money if they work more than 40 hours a week, no cold calling which is a plus for inside sales

    ConsIf you are not a top performer, you will never get a hello from upper management or any encouragement. The top performers don't need encouragement, it is the agent who is almost there , who need a little pat on the back

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement structure stinks. You have a VP, Director, then Assistants. You never know who is in charge of the department or who really makes the decision. Promotions are based on who likes you not what you know. Positive, the COO and CEO are friendly and easy to approach

    Great place to work. Laid back, fun environment!

    Travel Counselor (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsMoney can be very good, especially for highly motivated people. Laid back environment and dress code. Everyone gets along really well, and managers are great and helpful. Get to sell a fun product to clients that want to talk to you! Very extensive training for new hires. Company functions throughout the year. Free trips!

    ConsWeekend and/or evening hours for new hires coming in can be challenging.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be great if we could work from home.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    An interesting place to work

    Cruise Agent (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGreat Money, Excellent Bonuses, Flexible time off, free and discounted travel. YOu can make as much or as little as you want. It really has to do with your drive.

    ConsIn dealing with the Public we sometimes deal with unreasonable expectations from clients. The schedule is tough when you first start out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementClose on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and New Years Day.

    Great Place to work! This is the best sales position I've ever had.

    Travel Counselor (Current Employee)

    ProsYou can make as much money as you'd like. 40 hour work week, but if you want to put in more time, it's completely up to you. Benefits are great! Laid back envirionment, friendly place to work. (I've never worked in an office that had an open door policy throughout the company, including management)

    ConsWork weekends in the beginning. Can't work from home.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTHANK YOU for taking the time to ask our input several times throughout the year. I've never worked for a company that asks its employees what the company can do to better the work place and make it more comfortable for the employees. AMAZING!!! Thanks for the company picnics, free icecream and starbucks in the office, the free flatscreen Tvs, Ipads, and trips you give away throughout the year. Please do not change a thing! You're awesome!
