    Former Employee - Travel Consultant in Westerville, OH

    I worked at Affinion Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Great starting salary for bilinguals
    - Management was always there for me
    - Calls (customers) were pleasant enough
    - For the travel dept. the job was really easy.
    - They changed adherence so is based on how long you take your breaks and lunch instead of controlling what time you leave for each. Anyone who has worked in a call center will appreciate this.
    - Good bonus system.
    - Christmas parties
    - Employee appreciation activities and rewards.
    - They will reward you very well for overtime.

    Cons

    - Open 24/7 so you may not get most holidays
    - Chances are you won't like your schedule
    - They are very strict regarding occurrences.
    - Some times I felt like they don't pay much attention about the education and manners of some people they hire. (Fortunately most of the "bad elements" get fired or quit by the end of training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I enjoyed my time in Affinion - Connexions Travel. I think my only advice will be to pay more attention to the information that agents receive. I had a very hard time booking hotels because even though they were available, it was impossible to book them. The description of hotels was mostly very poor, I think if someone takes that more seriously, more clients and employees will be very happy.

    Travel Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Westerville, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westerville, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Affinion Group in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    On the day of the interview I met with Melissa. Right after the interview they made me take a test. A few more minutes after I saw her again and I was also interview by one of the Team Leads (Supervisors) and after that, they made me an offer. All on the same day.

    Negotiation Details
    The salary was not negotiable. Nor was the schedule and as far as I know, they won't be able to consider you if you tell them you are not able to work on Sundays.
