I have been working at Audley Travel full-time (Less than a year)
- Roles are clearly defined, great management.
- Strong company culture: you put a lot in but you do get a lot out
- Salary (and commission)
- One month fam trip when you start on sales.
- Training is comprehensive
- Great parties and social scene
- Wonderful, like minded colleagues.
- Targets remain the same throughout the year. I feel they should be a bit more weighted depending on countries/busy periods.
- Music in the office, whilst not always playing, can be distracting as people have such varied music tastes!
- Senior management do not actually spend that much time in the London office, and so when they do come down it's a little distant.
- The hot water taps have been broken for some time now.
- Updates are not always given on internal projects (although the projects themselves are great)
Advice to Management
Senior management- spend more time in London.
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Audley Travel (Witney, England) in September 2017.
Applied online using the form and submitting my CV. They contacted me the following day via email, but also text me to tell me to check my emails which I think is great. Arranged an initial call very quickly and they were flexible. Gave immediate feedback on the initial phone call and invited me to an interview at the office. Again, flexible with times and after a little back and forth, arranged an interview for about a week later.
Face to face interview was well run. I knew who was hosting it before I arrived which was nice. Interview was long, and included a simple grammar test. Approx 90-120 mins all in all. However, it didn’t feel like it dragged on and the questions were straightforward - nothing to catch you out. Felt at ease and it was a pleasant experience.
They got back to me the following day with an offer and also some feedback. Really impressed. It seems as though they are investing a lot in this process and it’s working.
