"Great company"16 Dec 2019

Current Employee - Store Manager

I have been working at STA Travel full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

1) Amazing perks i.e. FAM trips to places like Australia, Thailand etc. all paid for along with free & discounted trips 2) Progression is encouraged and you are given a lot of training and help... with progressing through management 3) Working with amazing people and getting to meet fellow STA employees from around the UK and around the world 4) Fun work environment 5) Bonus scheme is brilliant for travel experts

Cons

Really there is no cons of the job, only that the work life balance is quite tricky to manage with it being a targeted environment you feel like you want to be at work and earning money all of the... time but they do encourage you and give advice on the work life balance, it's just hard to manage when you are money driven.
