Current Employee - Customer Care Specialist

I have been working at The Mark Travel Corporation full-time for less than a year

Pros

This team is on top of their game! They know exactly who they want to hire and ensure that the process is painless. From the initial phone call with the recruiter, Lindsay, to new hire paperwork.......you are informed and welcomed with open arms.

Cons

I can't think of any.

-There was a morale issue when I first started, due to many employees moving over to the TripAdvisor side, which can be seen as a con. However, management took issues extremely seriously and have... implemented ways to improve morale. -Lunch options aren't always the healthiest, but I can't really complain about a free lunch
