Senior Travel Consultant (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 9 February 2017
I worked on the Diamler Crysler account and HRG managed to lose that 66 million dollar account because they were unable to provide clear policy and instruction to their employees and the travel regulations for the 17 divisions within Daimler Crysler They had several business accounts which they also lost including Expedia and Travelocity. The company has changed manes several times due to a bad reputation.
Great company extended benefits but low salary to compare with the work stress.

Great company and management. But with the account I was working before, it used to be a great team but through the years it's changed quite a bit which the work stress is not worthwhile for the low pay you get. Plus the company policies doesn't applied with the work/life balance.
I am so glad that I, found the job of my dream! I work with HRG North America in Halifax NS., they are an amazing company to work for, not only to they offer flexibility but they care and are concerned for the employee’s well being, along with the treat days that they provide and give back to their employees!
The management is by far suburb and outstanding! You are a person and NOT just a number at HRG North America I know that if I have any issue’s not just with work but personnel, my supervisor is there for me! They continue to support me in my short and long term goals and encourage me to attain those goals!
If you or anyone you know is looking to change career paths, I strongly urge to keep your eyes out for HRG North America, this is by far the company to work for, I am glad I took that first step and I look forward to many more years with HRG North America !!
Very stressful job, a lot of over time and work loads, no appreciation for your hard work. An advise, don't apply here. Management only cares about numbers or stats. Under staffed so that means the company needs to meet the stats or contracts with fewer employees, that means you will be overworked.
Benefits, free food from hotels
Long hours, management doesnt care about the employees only numbers or stats

We enjoy celebrating birthday parties of coworkers and occasionally hotel presentations from various cities. In the working atmosphere I enjoy most of the time talking with clients of their previous experiences.

I deal with many different situations and files daily. There is no typical routine for my current position. Management is very hands on. Wish there was a bit more flexbility in shifts and wages. Overall it is a good place to start working in the Travel Indutsry.

I enjoyed my time at HRG and would love to go back when time permits. The days passed by pretty quickly The company offers incentives. Staff is always willing to help out. Training tine and duration are fair and well done.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Halifax, NS – 18 February 2014
Long hours with limited scheduled breaks Coworkers nice but no time to socialize Management located in a different province - never met them Taking direction from 3 different companies (1 for schedule/1 for the office and 1 for agent support) Too much change and never enough training provided - you have to learn by doing which is very stressful Fun interacting with clients over the phone, most times
Free lunches and snacks occasionally
expected overtime, required to work longer than scheduled
Customer Service Representative (Part-Time) (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 28 November 2013
High call volume call centre where everything is monitored, calls monitored and graded. No chance for advancement and no higher pay as they can easily find someone to replace you. Good workers aren't recognized. Good job for a student but not someone who has a family.
Home office, Health and Dental Benefits, 3 Wks Vacation, Good Training
Have to work weekends, No life work balance, Low pay, No advancement opportunities
