    I worked at Travco (UK) full-time

    Pros

    It depends what department you are working for and manager. It might be not that bad in contracting but in FIT is hell!

    Cons

    No flexibility at all in FIT, very low pay rises if any! No vision in the company, managers not adapting quickly enough with current situation! Big overload because company is making cost cuts!

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to be more approachable! Fit is managed like a prison- no breakfast at your desk or lunch while working, no flexi hours!

    Pros

    Few great people to work with. Company allows you to travel often (don’t forget to give back the coins from your petty cash)

    Cons

    Management is awful. The owners care only about the money they can get from employees. There’s even now their sons working in the company, they’re are 20/25 and already managers (without experience obv). The company let go a lots of people to save money while they hired the kids. Great. If you want to grow at travco, you have to friend with managers or be in a relationship with the owners or theirs kids. Here’s... your ambition

    Former Employee - Hotel Contracts and Freesale Executive in London, England

    I worked at Travco (UK) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The work environment at Travco is really nice. I had a great time working there for two years with an amazing team, where everyone is helping each other out. I started as a Freesale Executive and became a hotel contractor after one and a half years. It was a great time there. Nice working hours of 7.5 hours with flexi time! You start with low money, but get a pay rise at least once a year, which is great. Very... relaxed work life.

    Cons

    No sick pay for the first year, only 5 days sick pay for the second year. Not much potential of advancement and enough money for me sadly. Many people are leaving or are being replaced in Romania to keep the costs low.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. There is some approval and building work needed.

    I worked at Travco (UK) full-time

    Pros

    Good location, nice people to work with (not the management level ones) and easy interview.

    Cons

    All staff like to gossip and love gossipping, even the top level management including Directors. Unprofessional and untrained Managers/Supervisors. You will get promotion if your Manager likes you, not because of your hard work but because you can kiss their a... They all are hypocrite! Low wages and they don't pay the overtime. The company don't really care about the valuable people who dedicated their life to... work there, also they don't know how to keep these valuable employees and as a result, the company has a massive staffs turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Value and appreciate people who work for you if you want your business to be successful! Reward your dedicated employees because of their hard work and STOP gossiping and meddling other people's business too much!
