    I have been working at Sundance Vacations full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A lot of companies boast they have a family atmosphere for their employees. However, I've been here for several years now and I can honestly say this is an extension of my family. They go out of their way to give you the best experience possible as an employee. Competitive pay, great health care, and now PTO days and absentee policies that compliment our ever-changing lifestyle needs. That's just the basics. Everyone...

    Cons

    Hard to say a true con because there are challenges anywhere you go and most of them are growth opportunities for each individual to overcome and grow. I would say there are sooo many opportunities to give and help and support organizations sometimes it could be a little overwhelming. You just have to pick what's important most to you as far as a cause goes and do what you can.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to listen first. A lot of times an employee is in the trenches every day with clients and coworkers. We see and hear things that are purposely hidden from management for various reasons. True communication for growth doesn't come for saying the right thing but listening and considering other perspectives on things

    I have been working at Sundance Vacations full-time

    Pros

    The atmosphere is upbeat, the people working here make the days go by quickly and enjoyably, and the pay is pretty good. The company does a lot of things for charity, and to help those in need. They believe in giving back to the community.

    Cons

    For the most part, working here does involve a desk job, so you have to like working indoors and be ok with sitting at a desk all day.

    Advice to Management

    Just to keep that positive flow going, especially in the mornings, the best way to start the day is with a smile. :-)

    Pros

    We enjoy each others company and stay busy talking with our customers here, so days fly by! We play games and celebrate special occasions. We have a star point program for employees to earn a variety of items, and have cash and vacation bonus opportunities. There is a health initiative running right now and we have done plenty of them in the past too. We are now gearing up for the annual summer picnic at Dorney...

    No day is the same at Sundance Vacations. We have a reservation division that helps clients travel globally. It's an exciting environment where you get to help travelers go on vacation, what's more fun than that?

    Cons

    Non that are unique to Sundance

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Sundance Vacations full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I love working for Sundance Vacations! The work environment is great, my coworkers make the workday very enjoyable and I never dread coming here. Sundance loves celebrating and finding an excuse to party, so there are frequent parties and fundraisers happening throughout the year. We also have a couple company-wide events during the year that our CEO holds to thank everyone for their hard work! Sundance is big on recognizing...

    Cons

    There's not much about Sundance that I would consider a con. Sometimes the work load is a lot, but nothing that somebody with focus and a good work ethic can't handle.

    Advice to Management

    Management is phenomenal! It feels like we work WITH our managers rather than working FOR them. They pull just as much weight as anybody else, if not more. Keep taking care of your employees the way you do!

    I worked at Sundance Vacations part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Most Weekends off but work long weekends and hours over Thanksgiving and summer holidays are mandatory

    Cons

    Very hard work. You are not selling vacations you are trying to convince people who have been called endless times by this company to come in listen to a speech about vacationing and buy into a vacation that you will have a very hard time using. And the free incentive to get a client thru the door is even harder for them to use. You walk out at the end of a work day..which by the way can change at a moment's notice,...

    Advice to Management

    Go back to shorter hours on a consistant schedule. Give off all.holidays. people so not want to be bothered on a holiday. Limit the amount of times called. AMD for God sake try doing the job yourself for a week and see how far you honestly get with these people .
