Travel Consultant in Rugeley, Staffordshire

Great place to work if you are looking to progress and build new skills
Started as an apprentice and have been enjoying working here for nearly two years. I love the challenge every day brings and how I am continuingly expanding my knowledge and skills daily. Right from my interview the company has made me feel welcome and been on hand to help me with anything I need.

0 flexibility
0 flexibility. All on the company’s terms.Promote they’re independent but felt very corporate to me. CRM system rubbish. There own tour op has uncompetitive rates.

Apprentice Travel Agent in Birmingham, West Midlands

Worst company I have ever worked for
Seemed like a lovely apprenticeship at first however the extreme low pay was not worth it. Awful management and awful benefits.Little to no commission as goes to the shop first. Was not allowed really any annual leave. Manager made the rules up, treated like a child. Would never do an apprenticeship like this again. There are much better and healthier places to work.
Travel Sales Consultant in Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire

Clique culture and disloyal company
Found the culture within the company quite cliquey. Management pretty much told you straight up that they seen you as competition. Would take customers from you which would affect your targets, which you weren't supposed to have during probation, but did anyway. Company put a lot of staff onto zero hour contracts as soon as covid hit (before lock down) and told them not to come in. Luckily this was abandoned as furlough scheme came out just after this was announced. Then terminated hundreds of staff before the end of lock down and before furlough scheme had been stopped. No staff support during lockdown, no contact from management or anywhere else. Altogether a bit of a shambles.
