I have been working at Grand Circle full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great pay for the travel industry, good travel benefits, casual dress every day

Cons

Company values count for more than actual results, which often results in the same associates being chosen as Top Performers every quarter, and typically they are the ones who spend more time with their lips on their Supervisor's but than actually doing their jobs.

    I worked at Grand Circle full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Potential travel. Good pay/benefits.

    Cons

    Non-flexible schedules. Constantly changing expectations in regards to work performance. Promotions based on popularity and appearance. The company places little to no concern on employee safety in extreme weather and emergency situations. Little to no advancement opportunities. Promotions are based off of appearance more than performance. Blatant and overt weight based shaming of employees by members of management. Zero transparency between departments. Unrealistic expectations set in regards to overtime. No parking. Poorly managed internal systems; elevators, bathrooms, and stairways. Inability to handle criticism appropriately on any level of management. Yearly attrition rates of over 100%.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. It was giving them advice that lead to my termination in the first place.
