Reservation Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Bend, OR – May 2, 2018
Throughout my time at Navis I had the opportunity to not only work for my deparment, but also worked along side our QA department. Additionally worked as a part of the Culture Focus Group which set forth action plans year-over-year for company-wide improvement from an individual department level.
Disappointment - Navis has revolving engineering management
SOFTWARE ENGINEER (Former Employee) – Bend, OR – April 17, 2018
If you want a job in Bend, you can go to Navis but beware that it will get old fast. On average Engineering management lasts about 6 months then gets fired. Don't believe the Best Place to work malarkey either. Just investigate the SW engineering turn over. New products? Nope. Never happened during the years I was there, Spinning with the latest greatest tech but never selling anything new other than facades on old stuff at best or re-coding for whatever reason they can think of I guess. The CEO is a great guy, he keeps hiring the absolute worst people it seems.
Great job. The opportunity to work from home in a call-center environment booking vacations. I enjoyed mingling with clients creating the most wonderful vacation ever. Due to the latest natural disasters (fires, hurricanes, floods, etc.), product was low and layoffs high. However, given the opportunity to work for them again, I will....
RESERVATION SPECIALIST "Worked from Home" (Former Employee) – Reno, NV – June 23, 2017
Navis is really a great company but just be prepared if you apply there be ready to really take the time to learn the 100 plus clients and really learn them it is not the easiest job but if you enjoy making reservations then this is the job for you. You stay very steady for the most part and you must have a quiet place to work other wise you would make too many mistakes, The hardest part of my job was finding all the information needed to make the reservations without making mistake, every client is different and every clients terms are different and some of the clients are very hard to understand what it is they want you to do, also way to many booking engines they should find one or two but they have like 7 so on top of learning all the different clients you also have to learn the booking engines it can be very overwhelming
Terms are very hard to understand on some of the clients
I enjoyed my time with Navis, I learned a lot about the travel industry, and sales. the culture was friendly, and money driven, but at no cost to quality. Quality performance and service was always a must, with no deviations tolerated. It was tough, but with open communication with my supervisors, and collages it became easier as time went a long. Overall if you are sales driven, with a commitment to excellence, and want to work as part of a leisure but professional culture then Navis is great company to work for
Great culture, proffesional, great opprotuity to make maoney
Luxury Resort Sales Rep (Former Employee) – Bend, OR – April 13, 2017
Was a great place to work. Got to learn about a lot of different locations around the US. You get to talk to a lot of interesting people and help them make decisions about their vacation. You get to work from home. Great staff and management is always there to help.
Call Director (Former Employee) – Bend, OR – March 14, 2016
Navis has been a great company to work for. They have high ethical standards, held to by top management and most staff, though like all companies there are some in middle management whose practices don't reflect those ethical standards.
My work day consisted of taking inbound calls from people booking reservations or inquiring about details of the properties for which we handled reservations and directing the call to the appropriate agent, the main office for the property, or taking information for a lead to be sent to the property. The fun part of the job was relating to and forming connections with the callers, and the fun and friendly interactions with my co-workers, all of whom are encouraging and supportive.
The hardest part of the job was giving priority to the contracted service for the client/property, rather than the customer service to the actual callers. I learned the practical side of realizing our primary customers were the properties we serve, while the callers were our secondary callers.
Overall, I have a deep love for the company because of their ethical standards, and couldn't have been prouder to work for them if I had founded the company myself.
Hi ethical standards, great team atmosphere, excellent profit sharing program, work from home..
Reservations Sales, Associate (Former Employee) – Bend, OR – December 20, 2015
I learned a lot working for Navis. Working from home was awesome. Helping guest with reservations was very fun. Management was great. Hours are not bad. They will keep your bonuses/ commission. They do not train you well or give you the resources needed to do a good job which makes it difficult to do your job effectively. You are not given very much room for error especially when you are measured inconsistently and are not given much support.
work from home, flexibility, fun
lack of training, resources, lack of stability, lack of intergrity

Telesales (Former Employee) – Bend, OR – March 31, 2015
The pay is not very good, the resources they give you need improvement. hours could be better. The management is nice. they do seasonal layoffs. You can work from home and that makes it vey nice but you do have to pay for your internet service and if something happens to your internet you cant work.
