Featured Review

Current Employee - General Manager

I have been working at Trailfinders full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

The company invests time and money in you from day 1 of the 5 week induction training in London and continues to do so throughout your career. There is a collegiate environment where your opinions... and ideas are listened to, if not always taken up. There is a structure to work practice which is supportive and protects you and the client from mistakes. The company encourages you to travel and experience the vast range of products on offer. The staff benefits are generous and varied. TF uses the best systems in the industry making the job easy and efficient. TF has a hard earned reputation for being the most trusted travel company in Trust Pilot and wins numerous awards every year. This reputation gives you an edge when competing with other agents.

Cons

The cons in TF would be consistent with most retail careers. The hours are long, but you are paid for every minute you are in work. There is a lot of weekend work, but you still only work a 5 day... week.

Advice to Management

Keep listening to your staff
