    Travel Agent Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Liberty Travel in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received an email to schedule for a phone interview.. Phone interview wasn't too bad, few simple questions about your experience etc..I then got an email for a Skype interview with Rebecca the recruiter...Skype interview went well.. She then emailed me pdf files to fill out (references, authorize background check and work history).. 7 PAGES I HAD TO FILL OUT AND SCAN, then Email them back TO HER.. Then I did the longest assessment ever. I emailed her and let her know that everything was done. NO RESPONSE. A week later I get a bs copy and paste email saying that they weren't moving forward with my application. I was told from my previous job that Liberty Travel called in reference to my past enployment. I specially put on my application don't call that employer because the employees that work there are new and they don't know of me. Liberty travel nosed into my credit report and my personal business just to say oh well we're not going to hire you. Smh a big waste of everyone's time. After all the back and forth the least they could've done is call me and say they weren't considering me anymore instead of sending a bs email

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Liberty Travel in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online received e-mail to set up phone interview next day. Interview very rushed was told there would be follow up e-mail to advise if I would be moving on to next step or if they decided to go with someone else. Of course it was a lie no follow up e-mail. Which to me is very unprofessional of them. I had respect for company until that moment.

    Interview Questions
    • None in phone interview. Just basic why do you want to work for Liberty Travel. Honestly the interviewer kept interrupting me so I don't think she was really listening.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    First is a 15 min phone interview. Then a online Self Assessment test that can last for 1 hour. If you pass the test, then you have a background check. And the final step is an "In Store Assessment (ISA)" with the Team Leader. You should expect to be in store for 1.5-2 hours.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Liberty Travel.

    Interview Details

    Only had a phone interview which felt extremely rushed. As if the interviewer needed to ask but wasn't really interested in your answers. They don't follow up with you at all whether you are selected for the second stage which is contrary to what they tell you on the phone.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Liberty Travel.

    Interview Details

    VERY long interview and hiring process. After applying, it only took a few days for them to call to set up a phone interview. The time in between all the steps was quick, but there are just so many steps that it winds up taking the process as a whole forever. After the phone interview, there was an online assessment- pretty standard. After that, it went to a very in depth background check- basically an interrogation. They check your background, your credit history, education- literally everything- be prepared for questions that you will feel like totally invade your privacy and are completely unrelated. After the background check and phone interview (which are both done by corporate in New Jersey), you will meet and interview with the team leader at the specific store you applied for. I heard back less than 4 hours after my in store assessment that I got the job. I started a week and a half later with two weeks in store training. The first week was a drag, the second week I was making sales. Then there's two weeks training in Ramsey, NJ, which is awful. DO NOT FLY if you have the option- DRIVE- the hotel they put you up in (courtyard marriott, which is pretty nice) is right on a highway, so you won't be able to get anywhere without rounding up 4 other people who might happen to want to go to the same place in order to get the shuttle. THEN, after passing a final exam, you actually get to get in to the store and start work. The total process took me 6 weeks. Of course, you get paid for it, so you can't complain too much, but it was just very long.

    Liberty Travel Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Rochelle, NY

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Liberty Travel in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    6 weeks, 6 interviews, a very thorough 1.5 hour interrogation into my background including credit and previous employers. good experiences with interviewing and excellent interview in the store.

    Got hired and started a week later for my in store training, I was very excited!

     What they neglect tell you in the interview and in the your Liberty Travel Commission Agreement is that the commission is not 6% of $9500 and 35% over 9500.01...its 30% of your total commission based on those numbers. I went in assuming it was commission on your sales, not commission of the agency! I am not the only one who thought this, there were several other employees that couldnt answer my question. One guy who just came out of training said he found out the true structure on the last day before the final exam and 4 people quit on the spot.

    Interview Details

    Like your other key business processes, hiring needs to be approached in an organized, logical manner. Applying a proven process is going to get you the best results.

    Too often though hiring is done in a rushed or even panic mode. A good employee has just quit or some critical business need isn’t getting satisfied. When you need a new employee, you need them now.

    Long interview process with very detailed screening. They look for experience in sales but if you've traveled a lot and have sales potential they will train. Lots of opportunity for advancement within the company.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Liberty Travel.

    Interview Details

    Online application. Then background check over phone. Then face to face interview with recruiter. Finally in-store interview with branch manager. Everything went smoothly until the in-store, where the manager was a little condescending and the questions focused on sales.
    They were very hung up on how far away I lived, completely ignored the fact that I was looking to move once I started a job- I stated this numerous times but it that was ignored and the distance was clearly an issue with them.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Liberty Travel.

    Interview Details

    Extremely informal, HR emailed me asking me to come in and interview and didnt give me any information about company culture, hours, benefits. The location in Ramsey is very outdated, the bathroom was disgusting I dont think I would be able to use it if I worked there FT. Tons of smokers I noticed. Casual work environment, the one person I saw wearing a suit was wearing a wrinkled one. The place smelled like band aids. They also gave me an assignment to complete at home,. which was very unclear. You basically had to write an "email blast"
