Good benefits, horrible job.

Reservations Agent (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

ProsAfter 3 months of employment, they offer full benefits (medical, dental, vision, vacation, PTO, 401K, stock sharing, etc).

ConsThe job itself is horrible, especially if you have a college education. The duties are inane, and there is a lot of stress to meet your quota for reservations.

Advice to Senior ManagementChange the way supervisors talk to the associates; if it's "coaching," make it more of a coaching session rather than a parent lecturing a child, which is what it felt like.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
