    Pros

    Excellent training - really detailed and committed training by the guy who spent weeks with us going over the booking systems. Very smooth introduction into the sale floor and a supportive team.

    Cons

    Targets quickly become unattainable Work is incredibly tedious, just taking endless enquiry calls. No much earning potential, uninspired colleagues. Humdrum

    I have been working at Gold Medal Travel

    Pros

    Allowed to work autonomously and judged fairly on results by a competent line manager (Product Director). Ideas could be implemented quickly.

    Cons

    Location - company has been around a long time and has churned most of the decent work force in the area. They suffered from a reluctance to promote from within (may have changed since TC taken over).
