    I have been working at Vacations To Go full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have worked at Vacations To Go for over 10 years and the experience has been great and rewarding. I was hesitant to take a commission sales job but was glad I gave it a chance. Management does a great job of keeping leads coming in (instead of cold calling). The employees and management are all easy to get a long with. I wouldn't trade this job in for anything else. Who can say no to free and discounted vacations which are provided to all the employees.

    Cons

    The assigned hours/schedule when I started was not the best. I had to work weekends or I could have chosen a late evening shift. After some time, I was offered a Monday to Friday shift. It does take time to get a favorable schedule, although if you are a top producer, you can become an All-star and pick the hours you want to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to the employees and continue having great company functions like the picnics and Christmas parties.

    Pros

    I cannot say enough great things about Vacations To Go. I have been here over 13 years and to this day I walk in to work with a smile on my face. Everyone is very friendly and easy to work with but most importantly, management cares. Each and every day they strive to make performing daily tasks easier for every employee. It takes special dedication and perseverance to build a successful business and management at Vacations To Go has done it. I am not only happy to have this job, I'm honored.

    Pros

    The company gives you the chance to make as much as you want. It encourages you to make more. I feel that the company its self, has like any companies the mind set to grow. Its great to see. I am also a agent who has been given opportunity for management and growth with in the company. I am as well a agent that has been made to feel as if I am family as I have had issues with things like the lose of a child. To see upper management sitting there in the church with me was something I will never forget. I feel as if this place is family and its my carrier not a job. I will forever be thankful for this company.

    Cons

    I really do not have any. Just feel as this is going the right way.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going! Stay the course and thank you. That's all I can say about this company. Love it.

    Pros

    VTG is an amazing company to work for! I have been with the company 2 years and LOVE it!! All management and EVERYONR in HR are very 'open door' policy and truly care about your success within the company. Plus it's a large company so plenty of room to grow and move around if you want a change. How much we make is up to us - which I like and even though it is a "call center" employees are not monitored or chained to the desk. If you need to get up and move around, clear your head, or just take a break to get your "mojo" back - we are all treated with respect and like the adults that we are. I honestly cannot say a single bad thing about anyone here.

    Cons

    The only "con" for me is the location. I live in Sugar Land and the office is located in the Galleria so traffic can be a bear sometimes - Work schedule is determined by seniority (unless you are an all star/top producer, then you can pick your schedule) so it will take me a while to get weekends off unless I switch departments.

    Advice to Management

    Keep everyone in HR!! And in Customer Service! Or give them a huge raise! The support they give us/employees is incredible and sincere. They genuinely care about us and want us to succeed both personally and professionally.

    I have been working at Vacations To Go full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working at Vacations To Go has always been fun and rewarding. The company does a great job of taking care of employees, including large bonuses for providing excellent sales and service. The two picnics (one in the Spring, one in the fall) are very nice to bring the family and work environment together. The annual award ceremony in December is also a great.

    Nearly all of the Managers and Directors start at the travel counselor position and are promoted within. When an opening for management becomes available, travel counselors are encouraged to apply for the position. This provides great opportunity for all employees at all levels of the company.

    I enjoy working at Vacations To Go and appreciate all the people within the company that make working here a rewarding experience.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons.

    Advice to Management

    Continue seeking feedback from all employees and making changes for the better, both for the employees, customers and company. Continue providing as many free/discounted vacations as possible.
