Area (Country) Manager, Lodging Partner Services (Former Employee) – EMEA – 16 January 2017
I have worked in EMEA in the Italian and UK offices and then in Auckland, New Zealand. Everywhere you get wonderful collaborative colleagues that want to work hard and have fun. Really great career progression and coaching culture, especially if one is mobile. Low turnover and the majority of time it is because of different industries or opportunities. Would definitely work there again and keeping all my ex colleagues as friends:)
Consultant (Former Employee) – Thunder Bay, ON – 7 April 2016
This was a great experience. I learned a lot about business and myself. The pay was extremely minimal for the hours spent researching for clients and sometime non existent if they suddenly weren't interested or just enquiring. I enjoyed it was a lot of studying and learning about all the different suppliers and keeping on top of it. As well as learning the different databases used for reservations and whatnot. The interaction with clients was great and I loved working to make them satisfied with every detail I arranged.
Fun, alot of client interaction, learned alot.
not financially rewarding, straight commision and must know a lot of people to succeed as a career

Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Ajax, ON – 17 September 2014
My role as Sales Manager at Expedia CruiseShipCenters, Ajax involved many things, and kept me busy everyday. Mainly, I was responsible for recruitment and staff training. We grew our team, hit our goals, maintained a set budget and kept moving forward, growing all the time. The hardest part sometimes was staying on task, as I was always having agents come to me with questions, but the best part was watching them learn the products and destinations, and see the sales grow. I thrive in a team environment, and have learned over the years that every team needs a leader to set targets, and guide everyone along the way until we reach the end goal. Nothing more satisfying when you accomplish a goal as a team! "Every dollar counts!" has been my motto for my entire career.
Interesting place to wok. Co-workers are cooperative and helpful. However, the hardest part of the job is to collect information about your daily tasks. But the enjoyable part is that the work is always done in time without any extra hours.
This is such a happy & fun job, I wish I had done this all my life.
Sales (Current Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 25 August 2013
A typical day is one were a clients comes in & we discuss were they want to go & do on their vacation. You learn after a few minutes exactly want they want & you get to plan it for them & the ultimate joy is when they return from their vacation & are so very happy. Our Franchise owner is the best always accommodating, pleasant & also there when you need her. I am very lucky to work with such pleasant & helpful co-workers, we all get along & even get to go to seminars & conferences together. The hardest part of this job happened this week when a client came in & said that she had to cancel her vacation to Hawaii because her MIR was not what she expected & her doctor felt this vacation would be too much for her. It broke my heart to see her cry as she was so looking forward to this vacation. The most enjoyable is when my clients return from their vacation & are so excited & they show me photos of their vacation.
Having to deal with a client that has a health problem.
very fun and life long memories at this work place
