    I worked at TUI Travel full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    they do focus on staff development and provide courses such as insights which was a great tool and experience. There is plenty of opportunities and you can never get bored (would not get the chance to). Fast paced yet exciting company to work for.

    Cons

    Balancing work and life is difficult due to the pressures of working within such a driven company. Remember to focus on you and if you focus on yourself and your own strengths everyone including the company will benefit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and involve the employee in the appraisal process and spend more time ensuring staff are OK rather than just assuming....

    Graduate Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Gatwick, England
    Anonymous Employee in Gatwick, England
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at TUI Travel in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I sent my application off and received a confirmation email almost immediately. 3 weeks later I received an email saying that although they liked my application, there was a high level of interest for the role so they were keeping my details on file. Then, I received an email inviting me for a telephone interview, which I booked the same day for 2 days later. 5 days after my phone interview I received an invite to an assessment day, which I booked for the only available date, which was 7 days after I received the invite. I was also told that I would be sent a link to complete a literacy and numeracy assessment. I was supposed to receive a confirmation email but this never happened, so I called the head office who put me in touch with the relevant department. I got the impression that they were quite busy as they didn't send me the link for the assessments until 3 days after the initial invite to the assessment day, which was 4 days before the assessment day itself. The tests themselves I found pretty difficult, although we were never told how we performed on these tests.

    At the interview itself there were 14 candidates in total. First of all we had a group exercise where we had to come up with a new brand of holiday in groups of 7 and then present it to the rest. Next, we had a role-play exercise where we had to sell a holiday to a difficult individual. We had 10 minutes to prepare and I found that I ran out of time preparing what I was going to say and I felt out of my depth in the whole thing as I have no sales experience (very few of the candidates did) and they knew this from my application. Finally, there was an individual interview which comprised of some pretty general questions about my experience and some competency-based questions.

    I received a rejection email within a week and I called a week ago to see if I could get some feedback. I haven't heard anything back so far.
