Travel Consultant (Current Employee), Sears Travel – November 5, 2012
Pros: good training, fam trips, commission, benefits.
Cons: have to be flexible with hours
Always busy, lots of opportunities to learn new things, great advancement opportunities if you're willing to put in the effort and show that you want it. Most co-workers also passionate about – more... travel.
Hardest part of the job for me is the stress behind designing a perfect vacation for a customer without any hitches in the plan, however this is also the most enjoyable part. If you are a good Travel Agent you will do well here - lots of traffic due to mall locations. – less
Pretty good place to work but they only hire part-time
Reservations Sales Agent (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – June 29, 2012
Pros: located mid-town toronto, office very state-of-the-art, management is good, fair and people oriented.
Cons: no job security, low salary, working with travel agents can be a challenge sometimes, not good travel benefits
Pretty good company to work for. Call Centre is busy during sales season then call volume drops during summer and company lays off employees. Training is long, which seems to be a little over the top. – more... Team Leads are very nice. Call Centre Manager excellent people person and very understanding. After only a few months working I was laid off. Call back was after a few months but job security is a little sketchy. If you are looking for full time and company advancement I would not suggest working there. No real travel benefits but if you can hang in there travel benefits are good after a few years. Salary is average for work type. – less
