I have been working at Audley Travel full-time (More than a year)
If you're passionate about travel, Audley is an incredibly fulfilling place to work. You'll talk to prospective clients about their travel dreams, craft the perfect itinerary and then assist in making that dream a reality. From the get-go, the initial training program is extremely comprehensive. It comprises of being sent to your respective country for several weeks and then spending over a month in the classroom learning about various systems. One of the most impressive aspects of the company is their desire to improve all aspects of the business. They genuinely care for the well-being of their people and actively look for ways to constantly get better. The benefits here are excellent including extensive vacation time, 401K match and improve with seniority. While I cannot speak for all departments, my team is incredibly supportive and sincerely wants people to succeed in their roles.
You'll need strong organization skills in order to keep up with some of the admin that's involved. This might occasionally require one to stay late every now and then. Additionally, some folks do better than others with the stress of hitting sales targets but that simply goes with the territory of this type of role.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing! Audley is a phenomenal place to work. You know you're at the right place when it's enjoyable to come in every single day. Hiring great people is a big part of this, so keep it up!
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Audley Travel (Boston, MA (US)) in March 2019.
I applied online on Audley's career website. I described why I wanted the role, where i have traveled (when, for how long), and my experience.
After a few weeks I heard back and did an online interview. Questions flashed across the screen and I was video recorded and answered them.
Then I was asked to come into the office and interview! Everyone was super nice, I was a bit lost and didn't know where to go and I had so many people come up to me and offer to show me the way to where I needed to be! Interview was awesome, then they showed me around the office!
