Vantage is committed to giving back to our community and the larger world we travel. Here is a summary of our Vantage Cares projects and other philanthropic efforts:

Vantage salutes our veterans

Honoring our nation’s heroes—from soldiers and their families to first responders at the Boston Marathon bombings and those who served with valor at the 9/11 attacks—has always been a priority for Vantage Travel. And this year we are especially proud to once again honor them with a complimentary river cruise to France, featuring a visit to the beaches of Normandy to reflect on our nation’s great triumph that helped turn the tide of World War II on D-Day. But we are also excited to team up with the Wounded Warrior Project for the month of Veterans Day for a special Facebook campaign. Vantage will donate $1 for every “like” we receive during November—up to $50,000—to this non-profit that helps injured service members and their families. Thank you for visiting us at Facebook and doing your part (and while you’re at it, please encourage your friends). All it takes is the click of a button for you to help our nation’s heroes!

Vantage Heroes

Vantage honors everyday heroes who have survived tragedy and hardship by donating one of our European river cruises to help in their healing. We hope they will see the world in a new and hopeful light, feel soothed by the currents of the continent’s great waterways, and embrace the life-affirming beauty of the world’s great cities.

    Revenue Management Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vantage Deluxe World Travel (Boston, MA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Contacted by HR a month after submitting my resume and was asked basic questions. They had me to submit a personality test and other exams. A week later they set up phone interview with the senior manager of the revenue department. Phone interview was hard because of the questions were very technical though the manager sounded really friendly and professional. At end of interview I was told I would need to complete a specific revenue management test within 24 hours. A few days later the same manager emailed me to let me know I had not passed the exam and they couldn't move me forward in the process. I was really sad but both the HR person and the manager I spoke with were responsive and didn't make me waste time like in other jobs I have gotten rejected without any reason.
