Travelex is a good job to gain experience in the field of finance.
Currency Clerk (Current Employee) –  Louisville, KYDecember 27, 2017
Travelex is a good job to gain experience in the field of finance, though it lacks advancement opportunities and the hours are inconsistent, Travelex is a good job to get experience in data entry and finance.

Management does not care about emolyees
Sale sign consultant (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CADecember 3, 2017
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.
Pros
Vacation time, learns about currency
Cons
Management, coverage

Unattainable targets and terrible management
Sales Consultant (Current Employee) –  Jamaica, NYNovember 6, 2017
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.
Pros
Get paid to be on your phone
Cons
Terrible management, short breaks, no social life

a bit stressful
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJuly 7, 2017
A competitive environment that proved dramatic and stressful at times. Its all about the numbers and not the people. Communication was also lacking and some of the expectations were unreasonable.

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.

A company that does not care about its employees
Team Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  USAJanuary 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.
Pros
None
Cons
compensation, insurance benefits, no worklife balance

Introducing to the financial industry
Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GADecember 29, 2015
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+
Pros
Great resume builder, ability to relocate out of the country
Cons
Not much room for growth
