    Pros

    There is so many opportunities to grow with this company. They company does lots of great things not only for employees but also for Milwaukee County Overall. The hiring process went so smoothly and are very informative so there are not any surprises. Lindsay in HR is GREAT. I applied for one position and after speaking with her she found another position better for me based on prior airline experience. Lindsay went over and beyond with her duties. I can't thank her enough. I even had the chance to meet the owner/founder of the corporation and found out he reports to work just like I do. Most CEOS or owners are somewhere on a beach relaxing. I look forward to growing with this company and utilizing all of my professional skills within. Thanks to Lindsay and the company for having me on board.

    Cons

    I can't think of any right now. Then again I've only been here 2 weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the Orientation Sessions they are a great ice breaker to get to know who' s in charge and where they came from.

    Pros

    The best part of working for Mark Travel is the people. Everyone is very friendly and willing to help whenever needed.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides of working with Mark Travel is that the training process can seem very overwhelming. There is a lot of information to be learned and trying to absorb all that information at once is a lot.

    Advice to Management

    My advice for management is to continue to maintain the training documentation for each department. It is very helpful to have something to refer to.

    Pros

    My recruiting experience with Lindsay Zager was awesome. She was very receptive to my overall career goals upon hire. I really appreciate her willingness to answer any concern regarding Mark Travel and or directed me to the source if she didn’t have the answer. Mark Travel has every opportunity and resource available to add to your career and wellness journey. I would recommend this company to anyone who is looking for stability and continued growth expectations.

    Cons

    Collectively we create a rememberable end to end experience – only come here if you’re willing to add to the great customer service and great attitude.

    Pros

    Great, dedicated co-workers, fun company-wide activities, and the opportunity to make people's dreams come true! Bill Sr. is a wonderful man and an inspirational leader.

    Cons

    Depending on what department you are in, flexibility can be lacking. A bit of favoritism is shown in terms of which team members are allowed to come back to work part time after the birth of a child and which are asked to come back full time or not at all.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to providing job sharing opportunities, or other types of flexible, part time arrangements for your workers who need more flexibility. You can retain their expertise, institutional knowledge, and love for the company, rather than having to replace them completely because feel they have no choice but to leave.
