stressful, low paying job
Corporate Travel Agent (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC18 July 2018
Not fairly compensated, no raise in salary in over 13 years working there. Expected to work overtime without compensation frequently. Even after hitting very difficult sales targets and incentives, the reward and compensation was never enough to justify the amount of work and stress.
Pros
medical benefits, paid vacation time
Cons
everything else

Lack of support and not enough pay
Corporate Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB17 July 2018
Expect to give up your life. This company cares nothing about the employee and more about the bottom line. Be prepared to work extra time and to be the after hours emergency agent at least one week a month. The culture is to work hard and party harder. If you do not attend the mandatory social "buzz" nights, it is frowned upon and you are then excluded from other outside of work activities. Basically if you want a life outside of partying and drinking, you are essentially an outcast.
Pros
None
Cons
Too many to list

ACCOUNTING ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON22 March 2018
This is a retail company. Therefore, they tend to have plenty of celebration to encourage staff to keep selling. There are plenty of social events to encourage team building and employee.

Good atmosphere with limited growth potential
Administrator (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC18 March 2018
I found the atmosphere to be quite pleasant, however, a little bit too corporate. There was no room for me to advance, however, others did so as they were full time employees. I wouldn't go back to Flight Centre but think it was a sufficient experience.
Pros
Decent work culture with little overtime
Cons
Too corporate and a little boring

The management genuinely care about your growth and want you to succeed at what you do. Pay and hours can be challenging, but there is potential for growth.

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

Too much
Travel Agent (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB8 November 2017
This company is highly sales based and asks for targetsthat are nearly untainable. I would not reccomend this company. I feel that they are too numbers based.

A great workplace atmosphere
International Travel Consultant Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON14 July 2017
Flight Centre has probably the best overall atmosphere as a company altogether. The concept of being a "flightie" is an amazing experience, from becoming a "Newie" to advancing in your career, Flight Centre is an amazing company to work for. I enjoyed my time working for Flight Centre very much.

Badly managed, their goals are too far out and they dont train their staff properly.
Executive (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB21 June 2017
the actual job is fun, loading and unloading planes, being around aircraft, towing and all of that is good. the company itself is poorly managed and if management does not like you they will drive you out of the company. they treat their employees unfairly, often favoring those who are just friends with the management team and not paying attention to those who actually work and do their job. they do not train their personnel properly.

Fun workplace with advantages of building relationships
International Travel Sales Manager/ Key Holder (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON15 May 2017
I had the chance to work with Flight Centre for almost a year now. I had definitely improved in communication skills and creating the personal relationships with my clientele. I loved the management and I enjoyed the work culture and the atmosphere I was around at Flight Centre. The hardest part about the job is being able to balance the work/life aspects. I did love the social aspect behind Flight centre and being able to build a family atmosphere with my coworkers.

International Travel Consultant (Current Employee) –  BC29 March 2017
There are many incredible people that I've had the pleasure to meet and work with. The Australian culture of the company is evident in the way the people interact.

Some perks but so much stress
International Travel Consultant (Former Employee) –  Oakville, ON31 December 2016
The salary is basically minimum wage but you are expected to work "as many hours as necessary" so some weeks this can be 60 hours a week. Unsympathetic management

Fun job with very little pay
International Travel Consultant (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 November 2016
This place is an amazing place to work if you want to love what you do but don't see the pay behind it. It's a very fun environment with really awesome people but the upper management, who say they are a complete open door, have a lack of respect for the front line staff and are actually difficult to talk to.
Pros
conferences out of country, travel benefits
Cons
long hours, little pay, and a steep learning curve

Fun company
Assistant Manager and Travel Consultant (Current Employee) –  Maple Ridge, BC19 October 2016
What other company is going to give you free travel? Global conferences each year? Yearly award ceremonies? It is however catered more so toward the younger crowd.
