Party Company...at least for the elite
Travel Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – July 17, 2017
Liberty Travel focuses on tailoring a custom-fit vacation experience for their clients. In my experience, this was true.
I worked in an office with wonderful co-workers who did not try to steal clients from each other. I was lucky to have support by Team Leaders.
Typical day was researching and sending information to potential clients in hopes that they will trust their vacation planning to you. Commission targets were high and pay was low. I spent many hours staring at the computer screen because I was overloaded with quotes to obtain. You may spend so much time researching vacations only to never hear back from clients, or they ended up booking it online themselves with all of your ideas. However, you also had repeat clients who referred you to their friends/family and vacation planning was easy and enjoyable.
The company is very "party-oriented", showcasing annual celebratory balls in an exotic location for those reaching a certain commission target level. This was for the elite.
I did learn a lot about different destinations, tours, and cruises, but I do not miss the long hours and pressure to hit targets that were high
Fun events, learned alot
High commission targets, low pay, long hours
