    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Explorica full-time

    Pros

    Some staff and coworkers are great people, and make great coworkers. Some fun perks, like staff tours. Selling travel is a great way to make a living, thus the work is meaningful. CEO is great.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment. Absurdly low pay, and management will keep you in a low position for a very long time. Hours are long and stressful for no reason. High turnover. Have seen people who have worked on the sales floor for a year, to be fired in front of their ex-coworkers. Little transparency from upper management. HR is interconnected with management, and thus does not look out for your best interests. As a salesperson, you are expected to act like a telemarketer, and not treated respectfully. If you want a career in travel sales, work at EF.
