Tour Director Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON2 November 2015
EF is a very fun company to work for - lots of office culture and ways to get involved. The pay is relatively low but benefits are a bonus and you get the security of working for a big company that treats its employees well (free vacations, likes to retain employees so changing departments is always an option).
