I have to say that I enjoyed every minute I was at this company. The other Agents and Management treated me like I had been there for a long time. I learned a lot and it was a great start for me for the work world in Travel. Unfortunately they could not fit me into their budget to hire me as a full time agent.

My experience with Marlin was somewhat disapointing I have been searching to return to the travel industry for some time, and when recieving the opportunity to join Marlin, I was so thrill just to return to the industry, as well to learn the leisure side of travel when my experience was corporate. I started with Marlin understanding, I was only one – more... day a week, and just being able to get my foot in the door was a thrill, I felt that I would have appreciated more time to training on a system that they knew I have not worked with, through the manager, I did get trained by a fellow employment, which was so helpful and meant so much to me. My employment did not continue, when I was told I might not get any hours at all for a couple weeks, and at that time I realized through lack of business as well, two agents being hired at the same time, a job with my substance was needed, and this was not going to help me at all, when the hours and business was not there. – less
