    Pros

    Casual work environment with amazing leadership! Great benefits and plenty of opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Most challenging aspect of the job was irate customers who couldn't understand airline policies and associated fees.

    Advice to Management

    Better negotiations with potential buyers that could have possibly resulted in no layoffs.

    Pros

    I loved my tenure here, the people I worked with, and the operational goals we achieved not only for our company but our partner companies as well. I became aware of changes within the organization last year and knew about pending layoffs, but vowed to stay the course knowing that the company would be closing its call center here in PA. I made a promise to our call center manager that would be here until we took our last call for this great company. I'm so thankful for everything that I learned during my tenure here and all the experiences that I had over the last 7 and a half years. I will always cherish the great memories I had during those years and feel that my exposure to this organization has made me a better person. I will miss many of people I have had the pleasure of working with.

    Cons

    A business decision was made to close the call centers in PA and TX. Such a decison was not easily made, but sometimes doing the unpopular thing is what is best. In this case I feel history will prove the right decision was made.
    If our paths never cross again, I want you to know it was indeed an honor to be a part of history and also to serve you!

    Thank you for the honest review. The changes that were made during Travelocity's transition were certainly not easy for anyone, but your attitude towards understanding the reasons for those changes ... More

    Pros

    Probably the most talented and passionate co-workers I have ever had or probably will ever have were at Travelocity. The Southlake campus was a great, casual work environment that seemed to foster creativity and teamwork. Opinions stated here are in reference to Travelocity Business which WAS the corporate travel division of Travelocity.

    Cons

    Abysmal and ineffective proprietary airline reservation system. Very little training related to actual position. Trainers needed training themselves. Management didn't actively encourage promotion. NO company travel benefits from Travelocity as Travelocity wanted to be mavericks and not beholden to any airline. Ha! How'd that work out for you?

    Advice to Management

    All too little, too late. Management refused to listen to employee suggestions for efficiency. That's okay the guilty upper management left after selling out the employees.

    Pros

    Nice Campus, Cafeteria, On Site Gym

    Cons

    No real training for new employees, no direction for employees, never could get access to systems that I needed to support

    Advice to Management

    Make sure a position is needed before hiring for it. It is necessary to provide new employees without any previous experience at the company direction and training. Expecting that a new employee will just "pick things up" is silly and sets the employee and the manager up for failure.

    Pros

    Everything was great about working at Travelocity. I worked here for 8 years and wish I still did.

    Cons

    Everyone has lost or will lose their job working at Travelocity because the greedy get greedier and no one cares about people, only money. That is what the world has come to and Travelocity is just following in that path.

    Advice to Management

    None.
