Negative Outlook

I worked at Travelex full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Nothing good about this company.

Cons

Was hired as a National Account Manager along with 40 others and then layed off 9 months later. What a waste of time!

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Travelex part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Benefits are offered. Store location. You may come across some celebs and really interesting people. My team was very easy-going.

    Cons

    Low pay.
    Low morale.
    Benefits are too expensive based on hourly salary.
    Foreign currency business is not long-term enough.
    Sales goals are almost unreasonable
    No real direction from upper management

    Advice to Management

    Better training and development.
    Re-evaluate incentives.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    It's a paycheck. If you are full time, you will get benefits. Everything else is pretty bad. I never refer anyone there.

    Cons

    Grossly mismanaged, promotions based strictly on favoritism/butt kissing and not on business results. Seagull management style by senior management (fly over things and crap on them), paired with a culture that promotes bullying and publically embarassing staff make it unbearable. The pay is a joke, and don't be fooled by the bonus plan - you wouldn't even be able to buy a pack of gum for what you're going to get paid.

    PS: Lloyd Dorfman is no longer the leader of Travelex, so don't read reviews about him and think that has anything to do with current status.
