At Your Own Risk
Travel Agent (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PANovember 15, 2018
The job started out great but quickly turned sour when Coworkers sabotage and steal clients from you, all the while spreading negative untrue comments to management. No work life balance. Short breaks.

Work for you!
TRAVEL CONSULTANT (Former Employee) –  Warwick, RINovember 13, 2018
Working for Liberty Travel was incredible. The support you receive from colleagues and corporate is amazing. Even when starting off, you always have access to support if ever you find yourself stuck or confused. The job can get to be quite frustrating at times, but if you keep organized and aren't afraid to reach out and ask for help when struggling, you will find that there is no lack of support. And at the end of the day, when your client is happy, you find that all of that hard work you put in was not in vain.

Terrible place to work.
Travel Consultant (Former Employee) –  Montvale, NJOctober 29, 2018
Management has grand dreams of things to advance the company, in reality, it is a sinking ship that is afraid to spend money to grow. The morale in the office is bad and turnover is frequent. In a world of internet booking websites, it's only a matter of time before this company dies a slow and painful death.
Pros
Company BBQs and wine/beer at your desk. Large break room with video games.
Cons
Too many to list.

Like to travel often? Don't be a travel agent.
Travel Agent (Former Employee) –  Natick, MASeptember 11, 2018
This company is a sinking ship. They do not know how to market, nor who they really want to market to. Very few people use travel agents, these days, but they really still are a valuable asset to have if you are using one. The problem is, Liberty is more concerned about focusing on marketing destinations to people, rather than marketing the value of hiring a travel agent.

Being an agent is pretty frustrating, as people often tend to use you like a library. They come to you for advice, and then simply book your recommendations on their own.

This company is big on drinking and partying. They host frequent "buzz nights" which are pretty much just how they sound. Newbies are given shots at their first buzz nights. They do host annual balls, both national and international. The best agents get to travel internationally.

Overall, the company seems to be a sinking ship, and that's why I got out ASAP. One other thing: you rarely get to travel. Occasionally, you'll get to go on fam trips. FOr the most part, though, you're stuck at your desk ad a mediocre job.
Pros
Great party culture, if you're into that
Cons
Failing company with luck-of-the-draw commissions and unrealistic goals

A nice place to work
Travel Agent (Former Employee) –  Eatontown, NJSeptember 5, 2018
I left there as I found a new job. It was a nice job with great training. Nice location. A typical day would consist of following up on yesterdays results. Making a plan for what to do that day.

Great culture if you like to drink and party
Travel Consultant (Former Employee) –  King of Prussia, PAAugust 17, 2018
Party culture. Terrible management. Offers a lot of training for novices. Hard to meet sales goals w/o strong clientele. Won’t really make any money until you hit 35% commission or Europe FIT bookings or river cruises. Great travel benefits. High turnover rate. Poor team leadership and effort makes a toxic work environment.
Pros
Great travel benefits

great for travel perks and incentives
Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Franklin Square, NYJuly 25, 2018
Generally, the employee experience in directly dependent on immediate supervisor. If there is an issue, there is really no one who is able to listen and advise in full confidence.

Travel Consultant (Former Employee) –  Mays Landing, NJJuly 20, 2018
Liberty travel does vacations for customers all around the word. They use every vendor out there which can make it difficult to narrow down and work with.The company is world wide which does give the oppertunity to travel to places you other wise my not get the chance to. Due to some customers there are many times when you stay after work or feel you need to work from home.
Pros
Chances to travel however it is working trips
Cons
Company rules don't carry well from store location to location.

low pay

Busy environment
Travel Consultant (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAMay 21, 2018
I enjoyed working with clients to plan their vacations. It was a very busy environment and what I learned there is you have to be very organized in order to keep up with all aspects of the business.. The hardest part was if there was stormy weather in the locations a clients was traveling. The most enjoyable part was when the client was happy, enjoyed their travel and wanted to re-book with me.

Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Weymouth, MAMay 9, 2018
Liberty Travel has changed since I began. For the last three years they have become more interested in Facebook at work and three times a day check in for numbers sold than the client experience. There was no work life balance for the management.
Pros
Close to home, great team
Cons
pay, management, culture
