    I worked at Maritz Travel full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Travel. Travel. Travel. With people that become your family.

    Cons

    Long hours, very little control over your schedule. A lot of corporate "policy" that you have to deal with.

    I worked at Maritz Travel part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Training was quick, but thorough. Management was very involved and was very helpful if you had any questions/concerns. The company places high value on teamwork.

    Cons

    I found it hard to move up to full time. There were many positions available, but the experience desired is out of reach for part time employees who just graduated college. The interview process was a little disconcerting to me due to the fact that I got one automated rejection email for ALL of the positions I applied for. I figured the interviewer would call/email me to say I did not get the position, but HR sent one and only one email to tell me that I didn't get any of the positions. I felt that was a little unprofessional.

  6. Front-line employees are treated as objects to be removed from, and placed on a shelf at the employer's whim.

    I worked at Maritz Travel full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing. I see reviews stating employees have been at Maritz for 10+ years. Many of those employees are upper management, products of nepotism, or both.

    Cons

    Training is inadequate. Lots of useless information given during training while very little instruction provided on use of systems used to perform daily job duties. Chain of command from front-line to supervisory level is unorganized based on scheduled hours. Supervisors available during employee's shift are lazy and rude. Employees are treated as low-value property. Mandatory over-time is schedule on a more often than not basis, and can be scheduled before, after, or both your regularly scheduled shift (there are 8 rotating shifts -- all employees, except 3-11 shift, rotate). Employees are expected to call-in to verify if they are actually needed for their mandatory over-time. If not, they are not allowed to clock-in. Punishment is administered for not meeting mandatory over-time requirements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with a little respect, understand Maritz is NOT the only thing in their live's. Create and implement an effective training program. Evaluate current supervisory staff (some are worth keeping), and either provide training on management skills or relieve poor performers of their duties.

    Pros

    Ability to work from home (not all positions have this ability)
    Flexible scheduling
    Great manager
    Wonderful co-workers

    Cons

    In my current position I have many deadlines. They can be very stressful at times. I'm also expected to work odd hours at times. But the flexibility I get from it, makes it all worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.
