    I have been working at Flight Centre Travel Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The culture is one of unity and fun. The support levels offered to not only initially learn the role and then continue to grow your skills but also free health and financial advice makes this such an amazing company to work for. I've worked my way up to a senior leadership position and can honestly say the more you put into this company the more you're rewarded both financially and through other means of recognition. The travel perks are great, the team environment created in store is very supportive and encouraging of success.

    Cons

    This job is what you make of it. If you put in the hard yards in the early years you will be rewarded long term. Like all sales roles you're paid more the more you sell and this doesn't suit everyone. If you're just after a 'job' which requires little personal investment then this isn't the role for you. If you're after an actual career you can be passionate about, one you can put a little of your own flair and personality into and one that will reward you more the harder you work then this might be one to consider. Don't expect that success will land on your lap. This role is self driven and often there's no hand holding. You need perseverance and independence to fulfil the role successfully so I understand it's not for everyone.

    I have been working at Flight Centre Travel Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The travel perks, four years in the Job and 29 country's visited! Many being work trips. Annual leave is encouraged!

    Cons

    Base wage doesn't increase over time. No opportunity's to renegotiate. My retainer wage remains the same as when I started and the same as someone just starting out in a travel consultant role. My knowledge and experiences help me sell travel, I feel I should earn more for what I do.

    I worked at Flight Centre Travel Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great training, a lot of opportunity to move up within the company if you're willing to work hard and there are some great travel perks!

    Cons

    No work life balance, long hours, lots of overtime, really bad base pay which is barely enough to get by. They make it sound like the job is really easy and that you'll be earning tonnes of commission within your first year. This isn't always true. It is really dependant on the store you're in and if you're willing to have no life outside of work.
