A Fun Company to work for but not enough pay
International Travel Consultant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, on3 April 2013
Being a travel agent is an amazing experience. You develop relationships with your clients and co-workers and you learn a lot. The travel industry is forever changing. If you're looking to start a career with Flight Centre get ready to give them your blood, all your time because there will be NO work-life balance and you will be greatly underpaid.
Yes they train you really well. They want to cut costs by any means so you will be responsible for your booking (obviously), ledgers, banking, statements (some take about 2 hours to complete). They teach you how to run your own business which is Amazing knowledge to have. Then take 90% of everything you earn. I would consider investing a year with them to gain all the knowledge you can and then open your own business and make more money.
You will find that people are placed in positions by default and not by merit. If you do decide to start with Flight Centre please realize that location is key. Demand a position in the financial district or anywhere where you know the clientele will be high. Avoid working in malls like the plague.

extremely busy place
TRAVEL AGENT (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB17 December 2017
Staff are great to work with but the job itself was extremely tiring and I spent 10 to 12 hours a day at the office. Customers could be very demanding as well.

Travel Agent (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC24 November 2017
A good company to work for as there are many benefits to the agents. The long hours with no overtime pay can get a bit frustrating, but there are pros and cons with any job.
Pros
Discounts on travel
Cons
Working longer than scheduled often without over time pay
