    You can make great money if you work your life away

    Cruise Agent (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsUnlimited income when the phones are ringing. Unlimited overtime. Great CEO.

    ConsThey go through periods where the leads just aren't there. They periodically overhire and then they have more people than leads and its a commission only job so no leads no income.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEven out your hiring practices. Try to reduce turnover. Keep the agents that you have happy.

    Great place to work. Laid back, fun environment!

    Travel Counselor (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsMoney can be very good, especially for highly motivated people. Laid back environment and dress code. Everyone gets along really well, and managers are great and helpful. Get to sell a fun product to clients that want to talk to you! Very extensive training for new hires. Company functions throughout the year. Free trips!

    ConsWeekend and/or evening hours for new hires coming in can be challenging.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be great if we could work from home.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not worth it unless your desperate.... keep looking for a job anyways

    Travel Consultant (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsSome of the older employees were great to work with.

    ConsI have never worked at a company that has treated there employees so horribly. From not providing coffee cups to the President & COO, Emerson yelling and cursing at his employees in front of the whole company. The company only looks out for them selves and really doesn't care for the employee. You will be treated like its a call center and have noticed there has been a very high turn over.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour employees are your biggest assets. Start treating them better.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    You get out what you put in

    Cruise Counselor (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsFor the most part, the atmosphere in the office is positive. The co-workers are very friendly and management wants you to succeed. There are contests to keep you motivated. The earning potential is very good. You get out of it what you put in.

    ConsSmall mistakes can cost you commission. You work nights and weekends during the first 2 years. 40 hour weeks won't make you the big paychecks. Top producers work 6-7 days a week.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Vacations to go is a great place to work

    Travel Consultant (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsFull commission with no caps lets you decide your own earning level based on your schedule.

    ConsFull commission so during slower months there is no safety net. Hard for people who have never worked this type of job.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
