    Current Employee - Travel Consultant in Orlando, FL

    I have been working at World Travel Holdings full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is mostly comprised of virtual sales agents and working at home is a great perk. They provide all the equipment and the training is comprehensive and on going

    Cons

    The virtual environment can leave you feeling detached. The industry is seasonal and the pay is 100% commission so the slower seasons can be pretty brutal and if anything happens in the cruise industry to slow sales (Like a ship capsizing 1/2012) then the netire busy season can disappear making it an incredibly slow year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure the commission program to account for the slower seasons. Restructure the way consultants are promoted to expert and senior expert and revise the way that CCR reps are able to take a sale away from a travel pro.

    I have been working at World Travel Holdings full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    team support is commendable, there is someone either close by or a phone call away who is more than willing to assist regardless of the situation or what position you are in. its a growing thriving solid and innovative company with sound leadership

    Cons

    they never close be prepared to work unplanned overtime holidays depending on call volume and scheduling needs. Its an industry that is constantly changing if you don't adjust well to change its not the job for you. The insurance plan needs to be revised while the carriers for health dental vision even short term disability 401k are all great the structure of the plan itself is not. Annual deductibles are to high. They need a plan like PPO with copay and no annual deductible or to at least offer it in the selections available

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more versatile positions cross over training in other departments so everyone has opportunity to learn more about the other positions and the company as a whole
