I feel they should do more when it comes to their salary structure , it's horrible what they deem as basic salary and commission structure is not right , I don't think they consider the cost of living at all. If they can spend so much to make events and so on happen , they most definitely can move those amounts to the everyday life of an employee.
They have staff high staff turnover because people don't stay .N

A typical day was to help people with their holiday packages.
I learnt that you can go on holiday and not having to spend too much money.

Workplace culture is very hard working.

The hardest part was to keep people happy.

The most enjoyable was when people came back from holiday they always brought something back to say thanks.
Pros
Seeing people smile
Cons
fighting for commission

I enjoyed this position very much as it was something else every day... no day was the same, no enquiry or booking was the same.
I have learned a lot from this company on general travel knowledge etc.

Co workers and management was not as involved and helpful as I would have liked or preferred.


Very long hours in the mall, and weekends as well as public holidays.
Pros
Incentives
Cons
Very long hours
