Featured Review

Former Employee - Travel Consultant

I worked at Trailfinders full-time for more than a year

Pros

- Fantastic travel benefits - Generous base salary - Generous annual leave - Good opportunities to earn a decent bonus, if willing to apply yourself - Quality training

Cons

- The uniform is truly awful, however it is under review so hopefully that will change. - An overwhelming amount of targets and statistics to meet . - TF is a micromanaged environment that can also... at times focus too much on negative feedback as a means of trying to increase productivity. - A backward promotion system, determined almost entirely on the overuse of statistics mentioned above. - Could be more incentives

Advice to Management

I know you are starting to try, but by becoming less stiff and stat focused, I think that the negative attitude which largely exists toward management and TF generally, will shift and in turn will... boost sales and productivity. Also, in regard to promotions and opportunities, start looking at people as potential and focus a great deal less on stats as a means of determining the right candidate. Stat's are so, so far from the full picture and too often I have witnessed the wrong person getting the job.

Current Employee - Recruitment Leader

Pros

Flight Centre is a wonderful company that supports its people to thrive and flourish through industry leading training and ongoing development. A great team environment and fantastic career... opportunities
