    Cruise Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Vacations To Go (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    I submitted my resume and got a call the next day. We set up an interview. The interview was great and turned into more of a conversation. He asked about my background then let me know he would call me. I got a call within the next few days asking me to come in for a second interview. Once I got there, the guy was so nice but it was more of an informative session and he didn't actually ask me any questions. Then once I got home, I got a call the next day offering me the position.

    Interview Questions

    Travel Counselor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Vacations To Go (Houston, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Sent resume in morning and received a call to interview the next day. Met with a very nice HR manager who asked about my background and talked about the company and explained the position, etc. I thought it went very positively, but I did not receive a call for a second interview. I think my sales experience wasn't recent enough. I was disappointed as I think I could have done well with this company and really needed a chance to prove myself.

    The interview experience was positive.....the outcome was not. :(

    Editorial Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vacations To Go (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    I had one in-person interview at their Houston office. It went well and they offered me the job by phone a few days later. I was considering another offer at the time and asked for a written offer letter and a few more days to decide. The manager then called me back to say they were withdrawing the offer as they needed someone immediately. I was a new grad and pretty naive at the time, but even then I knew it was a big red flag and very unprofessional.

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer was rescinded when I asked for a written offer letter and a few more days to decide.

    Assistant Editor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Vacations To Go (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    I applied online and was called within 24 hours and asked to come in for an interview. I did the following Monday. I met with an HR rep, who asked me some questions about my resume and schooling, and then I took an editing test, a writing test, and filled out an actual application. The editing test was printed on a sheet of paper, and you were to edit it with a pencil. You have a word processing document open on the computer in front of you that you are allowed to use (type words into it to see if they are spelled correctly), and you also have a dictionary that you are able to use. The writing test consisted of three questions that you were to write your answers to: what made you a good candidate, if you could travel to any destination, where would it be, and one other.

    I was told that I would be contacted at the end of the week and that the next step would be to meet with the Vacations Publications staff. My interview was at the beginning of May, and to date (June 9), I have yet to hear anything back. My emails and calls regarding the position have gone totally ignored. I have no delusions that I will get the job at this point, but I find it VERY unprofessional that the company cannot answer my inquiries, especially considering that I drove 2 hours to participate in this interview.

    Cruise Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Vacations To Go (Houston, TX) in October 2012.

    Interview

    2 Interviews, "always get 2 looks at all agents". First interview is with human resources, they determine if you will interview with the director of sales. Nothing difficult, both interviews were very focused on job history and daily activities of past positions. It appeared as if they wanted to determine how well you managed time, dealt with customer concerns as well as what made you successful vs any of your competitors. You will have a writing test to see how you will reply to an interested traveler as well as a math test. Figuring % of commissions to be received, you can use a calculator. Credit & background check.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me the corporate story of your past employer, corporate origin and how you were different vs "brand x"? Expect to be grilled about daily activities and you should be fine.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Was offered another position right after my 2nd interview. Got a call next day from VTG making the offer.
