Does Intrepid Travel offer sponsored degrees?

Pros

Young team so you can make friends easily

Cons

They pay badly which you accept when you join, but you don't sign up for horrendous targets. Despite being an apparently very successful and profitable company, with coronavirus they are making us take a 20% pay cut and trying to make us take unpaid leave - trying to guilt trip us by saying SR Managers have taken a cut. SR Managers who can afford a pay cut and unpaid leave are not in the same boat as us. Sorry but other travel companies are not docking pay for staff!

Advice to Management

Stop pretending to care about people when you absolutely don't. Just be honest.

Does Intrepid Travel offer unlimited holiday?

Pros

The trips are excellent. You get one free after 6 months service (ex flights). They do their best to be responsible and sustainable as a company. There is a team mentality that is hard to find in sales. Lots of vacation time.

Cons

This is a call centre. Salaries are extremely low and commission is capped and almost non-existent. Even exceeding target gets a pay out of $100-200 a month. Targets are set so high they are actually unattainable. Lots of random shifts set months in advance. They don't work around your life at all or take shift requests and days off are assigned to you. The only way to guarantee a specific shift off is to use vacation. Management micro-manage and don't coach. They highlight every tiny mistake in passive aggressive emails sent from feet away.

Advice to Management

Pay your people fairly. If an entire salesforce is telling you they can't afford to live you need to listen. At some point people have to come before budgets. Management needs to trust the team abd give out real responsibility.

Lots of vacation time.

Does Intrepid Travel offer massages?

Pros

Annual free trip per year, RDO’s, coffee, opportunity to meet people from overseas

Cons

Talks a big game but doesn’t even come close to living its “values”. CEO and his reports are boys club mentioned in other reviews with the single female report of the CEO heading up HR Workplace bullying and discrimination is rife, with favouritism shown to those in the inner circle The much-vaunted purpose initiatives (ie B-Corp) driven by how much PR it will generate instead of what good it will do. Whilst all staff were struggling with reduced income and hours in June last year, the big focus for HR was on new diversity training to capitalise and coincide with BLM movement rather than the welfare of existing staff. Pay is below average even for travel, hard to retain good people in areas of business with transferable skills like UX

Advice to Management

Do things for the right reasons, not just for the press.
