Overall very good experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at TUI Travel

ProsCan live in different places under the sun! After company's long experience there's a wide knowledge how things are working in those kind of tourist places where the system in general doesn't work always so fluently.
f.ex. good living conditions, might be a shared car, always some backup.

ConsIn some resorts and season there should be way more reasonable working times, still the same salary. Sometimes too business-minded. A big variety of bosses in the resorts. That type of work isn't under normal working rules.

Overworked, underpaid and thoroughly undervalued.

Overseas Holiday Advisor (Former Employee)

I worked at TUI Travel as a contractor for less than a year

ProsGetting to see a new part of the world, and experiencing things you otherwise would never get to.

ConsWaking up at 7am, and getting to bed again at 1am the following morning. Employees are often too tired to function properly! No assistance at all given with team problems raised during the season. Liquidation process is draining and pointless. Pay is awful.

Advice to Senior ManagementRealise that you can't pay your employees 400 a month and expect them to work every hour God sends!

Luxury Travel, but employees are not respected

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
El Segundo, CA (US)

I have been working at TUI Travel

ProsYou're constantly learning about new destinations for travel. Once in a while you can take advantage of a good travel deal.

ConsSenior management does not support or provide enough resources to allow employees to do a great job. Staff is overloaded and overworked, resulting in low morale.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your regular employees better; they are the ones making memorable trips happen for employees. Treat employees with respect and compensate them appropriately.
