    Current Employee - Management in Westlake Village, Los Angeles, CA

    I have been working at Pleasant Holidays full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefits including travel. Good working environment. The culture is getting better and is constantly being looked at to improve morale. Like any job, it is what you make it. I like my job and am very happy to have the opportunity to do something I really love.

    Cons

    Too many employees just don't care about the job. Excessive absenteeism that is not being controlled. Makes everyone have to pick up the slack. Nothing seems to be done with employees with bad attitudes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a better handle on employee attendance. Stop cottling the employees that don't want to work. Hold people accountable for their actions.

    I have been working at Pleasant Holidays full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great traveling perks. Easy commute.

    Cons

    Low salary, schedule changes monthly, no room for advancement, to management your just a number. Supervisors are not helpful when you call one and ask for help. Work environment is very hostile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employees. It's ok to tell them job well done. Make us happy to come to work. Stop being so cheap giving employees a 5.00 dollar gift card. Increase the salary pay.

    I have been working at Pleasant Holidays full-time

    Pros

    Pleasant Holidays provides the best benefits I've seen in decades. By working on another island from the corporate office, I work independently and have developed new skills and grown as a manager.

    Cons

    The salary is lower than what the job should pay. The managers have a tremendous amount of responsibilities, to the company, the hotels and their staff. Salary should be commiserate with those responsibilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the salaries.

    I worked at Pleasant Holidays full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Loved helping people get the best for there dollar.Also loved booking Weddings for clients The whole job was great .We really learned alot working there.I want to stay in that line of work

    Cons

    The Management they dont care about their employees at all . The employees are just a dollar sign.Management has become really all about the dollar. But management dont realize without reservationist there would not be anyone to book the travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start valuing your employees. And try learning the system so you know whats really going on.And you really shouldnt keep your employees left in the dark like you have for so many years. We would hear of changes to company for travel agents.

    I worked at Pleasant Holidays full-time

    Pros

    *Potentially strong travel benefits
    *Additional benefits

    Cons

    *All travel must be scheduled far in advance, be approved by your supervisor and are completely 'at will' by the company (meaning they can decide not to approve trips or even vacation time at will)
    *Work environment completely dictated by supervisor
    *HR incapable of providing/enforcing employee rights

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *Consider working to improve employee moral within the departments with motivation and positive feedback
    *Do not allow those in management (or higher) positions to create hostile work environments. That has passively been allowed resulting in the loss of several talented employees, but due to the higher position of the person in charge, no change has happened.

    I worked at Pleasant Holidays

    Pros

    Owned by AAA. Great travel perks. Company car for business development. Work from home.

    Cons

    On the road all the time. No GPS provided for driving. Expectation that you will work days, nights and weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How about some coaching instead of immediate termination for very minor infractions? Lots of unhappy employees here.
