    I worked at The Travel Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Some of the people there are, personally, very nice.

    Cons

    I was told while I was there a lot of people don't work out. They will hire you for a short time, give you really confusing training with no clear goals or expectations and then cut you saying you don't make it. It happened to me, and I was told by a supervisor when I was there that, "a lot of people don't work out". Also, what others have said about the favoritism is true. If you're not part of the clique in your department, you may not get to keep your job.

    Advice to Management

    Give clear expectations from the start about what you want. Get a handle on the favoritism.

    Pros

    Free coffee and espresso, easy work.

    Cons

    Way too much favoritism. There is a family that dominates the department and if they don't like you, they will try to sabotage you. You can get written up for something you didn't do if it's their word against yours. It's a toxic work environment. I enjoyed my job before they were the majority in the department. Things were more fair then.

    Advice to Management

    Do away with the nepotism.
