They company is a good company to work for. However magaement does not care about its employees and will try their hardest to have you quit before firing you. I work in the la region. The manager there is very spiteful and will make your life Harder on purpose. (Ive only witnessed this, never experienced it myself because I kept to myself ) Customers have even reported her themselves. There is a high employee turnover in this region. At least 8 people have left in the last 4 months because of the management issue. Also you will never get a pay increase. save yourself the stress and do not work in the LA region. And there is NO room for growth. They like to hire outside of the company for the manager position, so current employees will never get promoted. You will never be anything other than a sales consultant because the only other positions are management positions.

Management cares more about the business than your personal health so if you call out often or have kids, don't work here! They do not understand that life happens and things get tough sometimes. Managers make up personal rules as they go and say it's a "part of the policy". You get a half an hour lunch break but have to take customers in between bites even though you're clocked out for the time. If you don't meet targets for the month you get written up although customer traffic is out of your control. Don't even THINK about calling out if you're on schedule.

Travelex was an exciting and fun place to work. I enjoyed working with a great sales staff that worked together to reach a common goal. It was exciting meeting new people and tourists and educating them on the exchange rates.
Co-Workers were great the management was very supportive there just wasn't much room for advancement.

Greet and answer customer questions. Upsell our currency packages. Inform the customers of how the exchange rates work. Inform the customer of the currency need for the place they were traveling to. Place currency orders twice weekly. Sell off excess currency once a week. Train any new employees. Ensure all employees including myself were up to date on all company and federal Anti Money Laundering policies and Foreign Exchange policies. Correspond to all email inquiries in a timely manner. Make sure all paperwork was filled out properly and all files were maintained and up to date. Keep office supplies stocked at all times and place regular orders for more supplies as needed for my store and the rest of the district.
Meeting people from all over the world, opportunities to travel.
Sometimes there were extensive periods of down time with nothing to do.

The pay wasn't the best, but the skills and job essentials pave the way for your future. Great team, and a great atmosphere! I learned so much working there, that it out weighed the pay. Overall it was a great place to be.
Team Sales Manager (Current Employee) – USA – January 4, 2016
The best part about working here at Travelex are the employees in the stores. They are some of the best associates that a company will hire. Unfortunately the company leadership does not care about the associates. They lie, cheat and plot against their own employees. Its pretty sad. The worst thing I've seen is the management teams across the country lay off employees right before the holiday season and then make jokes about it.
Final facts are they don't care about their people and probably never will.
compensation, insurance benefits, no worklife balance

Tips: Use Travelex to better understand world markets. Pay attention to the fluctuations of rates during particular current events. Gain understanding on how exchange rates work. Completely familiarize yourself with Anti Money Laundering laws and your resume will be outstanding. You can easily go from making $11 per hour to a company that will pay you $40-50k a year. As a team manager you are worked like a district/regional manager, responsible for multiple locations some even out of state. Use the skills to apply for a regional manager position with a different company for $65k+
Great resume builder, ability to relocate out of the country
