I was going to say the novelty of working from home, but that eventually loses its luster. I have nothing stellar or even remotely good to say about this company.
Don't be sold on the dream. I should have known what I was getting myself into from how they facilitated the training. You spend most of the training period learning information about the cruise industry and different ports of call that you will never remember, and apparently it's against company policy to utilize their training resources off the clock to become more familiar with the industry as a whole. Your last two weeks of training is when the focus is somewhat shifted to learning the actual sytem you will be using, and becoming familiar with the sales process or as they call it, "customer connection". It's honestly all a joke. This company is run by people who I wouldn't let manage a fruit stand. There really isn't a sales component to this job except selling insurance, and setting follow-up appointments. What they fail to tell you in training is that they filter calls based on popularity. If you don't kiss management's butt then you most assuredly are getting less desirable calls. I spent the last four months of my employment with this company wondering everyday whether it would be my last. It was a nightmarish experience. Now let's get to pay. As a travel professional you get paid $8 per hour or your booking commission, whichever one is higher. You have the opportunity to bump the $8 per hour to $12 if you have a 25% conversion, and you're taking atleast 1 call per hour. Year to date I brought in almost 900k in revenue and made the company over $120,000.00 in net profit. My take on that was a gross of 19k, so about 16k after taxes. Do a quick cost benefit analysis and see if it's worth it because it isn't. Working harder doesnt equate to making more money in this organization. You're at the mercy of management. If they like you then you will get decent calls, and if they don't then you might as well get a second job or start looking for employment elsewhere. I have a feeling this company will eventually run into legal issues due to wrongful termination complaints and inequality in the work place issues. By all means, steer clear.
Advice to Management
No sense in wasting words of advice. They wouldn't listen if the success of their company depended on it.
