    Pluspunten

    Great training! fun environment if you are young and have no young family of your own

    Minpunten

    No work life balance, very long hours and unrealistic sales goals. You are only as good as your last month.

    Ik heb een deeltijdbaan bij Flight Centre Travel Group (Langer dan 10 jaar)

    Pluspunten

    I love the opportunity to work part time, I also get to work from home and flexible hours when required. I am really loving the Parentwise initiative - the stay in touch catch ups when I was on mat leave and the return to work caoching sessions are amazing.

    Minpunten

    I honestly don't have any worth mentioning

    Pluspunten

    - We have a great culture (family, village, tribe model)
    - We have leaders, not managers
    - The only constant is change - this could be a con but in my opinion it's a pro - we never sit still... we're always striving for something bigger and better
    - Everyone has so much passion - we are the brand... we are travellers for travellers and we want to open up the world for those who want to see
    - Reward and recognition - Monthly or Quarterly awards depending on your department and of course GLOBAL GATHERING!!!
    - Opportunity to travel domestically and internationally for work

    Development:
    - Huge opportunity for career growth - leaders support 'brightness of future' and genuinely do everything possible to support and challenge you in your quest (I've had 3 promotions in 5 years)
    - The business has a FANTASTIC Learning & Development team

    Supportive workplace:
    - Flight Centre Foundation (Charity)
    - Brighter Futures (committed to sustainability - inc. environmental)
    - Recruitment (Career advice and support)
    - Learning & Development (expert trainers / leadership etc.)

    - Moneywise (Tax, Home Loans, Financial Planning)
    - We also have access to an external company who provide counselling and related services
    - Flight Centre genuinely cares about the people. In addition to the above (formal teams/businesses) we also have Parentwise and Womenwise

    - Like any company/team… we don’t always get it right

  4. "Work hard for your money"

    Pluspunten

    Really great company, most of your colleagues are awesome people to work with and the work is very varied. You learn a lot!

    Minpunten

    You work very hard for your money. As a lot of your pay is commission based you sometimes feel like there is pressure to “rip off” your customers which feels wrong and if you’re not up to doing that you won’t achieve in your business. They try to justify marking up your sales as “valuing your business”

    Pluspunten

    - Great work culture and team focus
    - Great processes in place in some teams, particularly marketing
    - Good opportunities available if you have the right connections within the team
    - Global company, great to have as experience on your CV

    Minpunten

    - There is a huge focus on moving staff with consultant backgrounds/connections through the business - putting them in roles in which they have no experience.
    - Big focus on workplace events, if you don't attend or miss out - you're not in the 'in' group.
    - Management don't really care too much about growth and development - there are no formalized growth plans for staff
    - Salaries are quite low in comparison to similar roles in market

    Advies aan management

    - More appreciation of support staff with specialized backgrounds - there is a huge focus on moving staff with consultant backgrounds/connections through the business - putting them in roles in which they have no experience.
    - Putting in place a formalized employee review system for support which incorporates goal-setting and yearly salary reviews based on performance
    - Introducing more competitive salary for specialist roles

    Pluspunten

    Great work culture, loads of work events, discounted travel, educational/famil opportunities, good people working for the company and travel networking abilities.

    Minpunten

    There is basically zero opportunity for career progression for a part-timer, unless you want to be a retail travel agent for the rest of your life. Systems, products and plans out the window as fast as they were put in place, most head honchos running the show have zero idea what it's like to work in a store in the last 10 - 15 years. Uncomfortable uniforms.

    Advies aan management

    It's easy to say you care about your women and parents in the workplace, but it'd be another thing to actually show them. You're talking the talk that you are flexible and progressive in your thinking, but are you walking the walk?

    It's true that constant change is a reality of working for Flight Centre - it's one of the reasons we continue to adapt and succeed as one of the largest travel groups in the world.

    Pluspunten

    My days go so fast because I'm always so busy with interesting things. Every customer has a different idea for a holiday or some crazy unique place they'd like to visit.

    Management are supportive and constantly offering new training on a monthly basis and loads of 'BOF' opportunities (what the company calls Brightness of Future AKA career progression).

    I work at a small community store in inner-west Sydney and my team and customers are awesome.

    There are tons of incentives out there including famil trips, agent discounts, ship/plane inspections and product nights (win prizes, learn about travel products/destinations etc.)

    Minpunten

    It can take quite a bit of time to build your customer base and skill level. The first year is a challenge and there's just so much information/product/systems to learn, so it can be overwhelming for new staff, but very rewarding.

    Inclusive culture where your input and ideas are encouraged and valued. Know how to celebrate success. Strong company vision and philosophies.

    Minpunten

    They have lost a lot of long serving people across the company and this seems to have weakened the depth of the company. Bringing in external people into senior leadership roles who don’t have the same passion or care for the company & they’re making decisions for themselves not the people.
