    I have been working at Carlson Wagonlit Travel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I really enjoy working with CWT. I have great teammates who are helpful & kind. Because it's a family run company, they have a good focus on employees wellbeing & community involvement. The benefits are also pretty good. Lastly, CWT has good career growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Working at CWT requires a high tolerance of ambiguity & personal autonomy. Onboarding is not as robust as other companies; however, self starters tend to find ways to navigate the organization & drive change. The company can also be reactive at times & there can be communication breakdowns.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in more robust technology hardware for your client facing employees. Integrate internal software systems to better improve processes ... to much reliance on email.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Carlson Wagonlit Travel (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    First there was a phone interview where they just explained the position and a little bit about the company. Then a in-person interview with the VP of Sales and Senior Director of HR. I had to create a presentation to showcase why I would be a great fit for their team. Then then finally I had to take an online sales personality assessment.
