I have been working at STA Travel full-time

Pros

Laid back culture (you can wear jeans if that's what is important to you)

Cons

Terminally ill business that will not adapt to save itself. This is exacerbated by new management that is completely out of touch with the business. Management's inability to communicate any type of vision or strategy for the future has everyone nervous and insecure about the future of the company. As a result, all the smart/talented employees have left causing a complete talent drain. I'm sure they could hire more people, but anyone worth having would not want to work in this completely dysfunctional environment. Everyone is packing their parachutes and leaving as quickly as they can. I hope I'm not the one left to turn out the lights when this meets its natural end.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you have a plan for God's sake please share it.

    Overal Positive Brand Ambassador Experience

    I have been working at STA Travel as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    You're given a lot of range with what you can do with this internship.
    It can either be a lot of nothing (posters, flyers around your campus) or something more exciting.
    The other Brand Ambassador and I would come up with more marketing ideas and put them in action.
     I was able to use the computer booking sytem and act as a Travel Expert when one of the staff had been out for quite some time
    Perks: travel vouchers at the end of the semester! I held this position the maximum 2 semesters in a row.

    Cons

    Not a lot of guidance
    I wish this internship had more structure! This x10.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're going to have a Brand Ambassador internship-type program, keep it structured and maintained better.
