    Pros

    Vacation benefits and Co workers

    Cons

    Everything else is sad, they just could care less about current employees or keeping good workers. Everyone is dispensible.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so greedy. Would it kill you to have even maybe one holiday party a year, or summer picnic to acknowledge how hard your employees work? Or that they are appreciated?

    Pros

    Some travel benefits, learn more about specific travel brands. Can work from home

    Cons

    pay was not good.some unrealistic goals for very little incentive. Make you work overtime during high time. Hired as work from home employee but never given opportunity until I said I would leave job.

    Advice to Management

    offer more sales incentives and reward top producers

    Pros

    Traditional work environment, standard benefits, and positive outlook for company culture improvement since investment from Bain Capitol.

    Cons

    Lack of technology, poor communication between departments and other divisions within ALG, and the travel perks are rapidly declining.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. Your staff resents you. No longer the Mullen fiefdom.

    Pros

    The people are fantastic in Philadelphia! My manager is ver supportive, communicative and not a micromanager. The hours are great for my schedule. The FAM trips and staff specials are wonderful!

    Cons

    The pay could be better for the amount of training and knowledge that we have been given.

    Advice to Management

    Up the pay. We are , thanks to you, knowledgable travel agents without commission, who are getting only slightly more than minimum wage. We could, quite literally, work at a fast food restaurant for more. The atmosphere in the workplace is great. The staff that hires knows what they are doing. We are all friendly, open, interesting people who love to talk to other people about travel. The number one complaint that I hear amongst the res agents is the pay. It's too low given our knowledge. Bring the speed of many of the ORD agents up to par with us so we don't have to spend time losing bookings while we fix their errors. Our customer service is paramount to the TAs, they know that they can count on us to not miss picking up a transfer. We stand behind our name, and that's important. We come through, so they look good and keep booking with us. All in all, I love working at Apple Vacations, but, given the pay, all it is doing for me is teaching me to go somewhere else to earn more money.
