We want our employees to love coming to work and our culture is as important to us now as it was back in 1996 when it was just Craig, John and a flight to Vietnam.

    I have been working at Audley Travel full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Superb training and support. Great team ethos. I enjoy working for a company with a set of values that thread through everyday activity. Audley cares about its staff who in turn care about their clients and this results in a high level of repeat and recommend business.

    Cons

    This IS a sales environment so targets need to be met, but there is a lot of support and robust processes in place to help you achieve them. Compared to other sales jobs it is not a high pressure environment. No obvious cons, but the pension offering could be better.

    Advice to Management

    The challenge for management will be to grow the business without losing the ethos / AudleyWay that is so pivotal to retaining our loyal client base.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Audley Travel (Witney, England) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Through an agency. One telecon, face to face. Thats it!

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing, cheap interview. Behavioral assessment done, but it is never used to assess anyone. They keep everyone if they like them!   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiations at all. I did not accept what they offered, and they increased the rate themselves
