    Pros

    I've been with the company many years now, and have seen firsthand many instances of how much the owners care about the team members and the company itself. I've never seen a company so invested in the core values - it makes me proud to say I'm a team member. From the benefits, to the vacation plan (which, compared to other Milwaukee companies, is very generous), to the wellness program - team members mean a lot to the company.

    I can also tell you that I'm not the only one who feels this way. For each person who has negative things to say about the company, there are 10 more who feel the opposite. We have such longevity and knowledge throughout the teams and you can see the passion for the products we sell and for the customer. We try to treat each other like family here - we may not always agree on things, but we all care about each other.

    Cons

    Teams require a lot from their team members and they hold their team members accountable. Although we have fun, we still expect a high quality of work from everyone. We have our own operating system which can take some adaptability (but is useful once you get using it). Keep in mind none of these are really negatives, but you have to be willing to get your hands dirty and do the work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep supporting the team members. We get so much value out of your support and encouragement.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Mark Travel Corporation (Las Vegas, NV) in January 2017.

    Interview

    HR mgr had no INTEREST. VERY RUDE, other HR over phone had more interest and asked all the questions. After it was over HR stood up said thank you and never followed up.
