    Former Employee - Booking Agent in Panama City Beach, FL
    Former Employee - Booking Agent in Panama City Beach, FL

    I worked at bookit.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay; Originally good management. The benefits were pretty decent overall and they gave good bonuses upon reaching new records in bookings.

    Cons

    Company went from family-friendly environment to one that was your typical corporate robotic type. Not sure what changed overall but the atmosphere went downhill considerably by 2008.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Considering the biggest in management are pretty much all devout Jehovah's Witness', maybe pay a little more attention to the fact your employees also have families and different faiths.

    Former Employee - Sales Agent in Panama City Beach, FL
    Former Employee - Sales Agent in Panama City Beach, FL

    I worked at bookit.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Paid time off and holidays.

    Cons

    Constantly changing work schedules with no regard for the employee. Pay also consistently changing, as are sales goals, policies which directly impact your paycheck. I went from making $18.50 an hour to $12.50 an hour "plus incentives"--ha! Never know what you're walking into day to day. Office culture extremely negative, morale is awful. No opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house and start fresh with new managers who actually have the best interests of the employees at heart. Have a conscious.

    Former Employee - Sales Agent in Panama City Beach, FL
    Former Employee - Sales Agent in Panama City Beach, FL

    I worked at bookit.com full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Hotel discounts, soda machine in break room, decent wages (until pay structure change).

    Cons

    Management leaves all sales agents in the dark and does not tell them anything until the day before new policies go into place. Very shady work environment. Awful employees getting promoted based on who they know. Very limited educated individuals working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote the workers who are SUCCESSFUL AND SMART! Don't change pay structure constantly to hide your financial disasters and mistakes. If the pay is too high for sales agents maybe you should do the intelligent thing and only keep the BEST SALES AGENTS WHO DESERVE THAT PAY.

    Pros

    Benefits, people I work with are great and my manager is wonderful

    Cons

    Upper management micro manages everything! Mandatory overtime and meetings with no assistance in working with your schedule. If you have a life outside of bookit, forget it. No pay raises. Only negative feedback for all your hard work. Expectations for bonus are becoming outrageous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good employees will make a good business prosper. Treat your employees with some more respect.

    Pros

    Great co-workers who are trying to make a living like myself. They do recognize employees on their anniversaries. Some of the managers are good.

    Cons

    Outsourcing to Jamaica and putting Americans out of work. They don't care about the customers like they did when I first started.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a better system and quit trying to force the healthy lifestyle on people.

    Pros

    This company gives "new to the industry" team members an unprecedented chance to excel in the travel industry and learn the in's and out's. BookIt's core values are perfect, they really hold true to these values and it's proven every day. Management is always up for trying new things really takes into consideration everyone's ideas and suggestions.

    Cons

    Newer company comes with new challenges. Still getting in the groove but on an excellent path!

    Former Employee - Regional Marketing Manager in Panama City Beach, FL

    Pros

    They support ongoing training, bringing in different teams to help you learn more about your job. They promote based on talent rather than just on seniority. They treat their employees very well until they decide to lay them off with no notice.

    Cons

    Very little long range planning or direction at top levels. They seem content to make sweeping changes to see what happens rather than creating a systematic plan based on research. In reality the treatment of employees does not match with their rhetoric. The work environment is dreary and not conducive to creativity.
