    Pros

    They pay you in a timely manner

    Cons

    The pay is little with very small raise opportunity , the turnover is very high because they don't listen to their employees, stats are everything ... nothing else matters to them. sell sell sell or be fired.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees. Monitor them. If they are failing , 9 times out of 10 it is your fault as it is not a hard job.

    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.
