17.5 hours feels like full time!
Travel Advisor (Former Employee) –  Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire22 February 2018
I lasted 2 months!!
My main problem is that i was looking for 16/17 hours over 2/3 days to have a nice little part time job. The shifts are on a rota, NEVER the same week to week. i was finding i was in for a few hours 5 days out of 7 some weeks! Theres flexible & then theres ridiculous. Definitely not suitable for someone with children.

The other problem is that the job is SO underpaid. Minimum wage (which i dint mind) BUT they expect you to sell till you drop. They dont take lunch breaks and often stay over hours. For me the selling in itself i found easy , the problem comes with the booking systems!! There are SO many different ones, none tally up, so youre entering the same details again n again, and all are different!!! The other staff are also busy so there really isnt time for someone to sit with you while you learn!! The company is to blame, like everywhere these days they cut n cut to the bone. We had to even be the store cleaners, emptying bins & hoovering!!!! (no thanks)

The only thing that was good was the staff. They are lovely, and it was ashame to leave them.
I really think its a role suited to young ambitious person, pre kids who can accept all the rules, compliance & constant targets.
Pros
lovely staff
Cons
The shifts, the wages, the targets, the rules

Only if your face fits.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, West Midlands13 February 2018
I worked in a large store for 2 years followed by a small store for 4 years as management. I have never worked in a company where "face fitting" has been such an issue. Targets are unrealistic and if your face doesn't fit higher management will come down on you heavily, whilst if you're part of the "clique" you can get away with murder.

Job is very high pressure with very little thanks, you are expected to spin so many plates it's exhausting. Travel is not a well paid career but for the stress and hours put into this company for under £8 an hour - as management - it was laughable. Long hours, breaks forgone and hours of unpaid overtime.

They sell a FANTASTIC product and I was proud to work for them based on this. As a holiday company they are top tier but I would not recommend anyone to work for them.
Pros
Small holiday concessions, decent staff exchange rate, you'll be able to leave one day.
Cons
Long hours, low pay, cliques in staff, little training provided.

Depends if your face fits!!
Travel Agent (Former Employee) –  Lancashire2 January 2018
Be prepared for long hours and if you have to stay with a customer you never get the time back. The salary does not match the stress that you are put under for targets, jobs and you must follow the rules word for word otherwise you’ll be investigated.
The fun part watch what you say to your boss- they might slab you in the back!!
Pros
Only thing free concession off holidays (is it worth it-NOPE)
Cons
Long hours, stress, little pay

Fun productive workplace
Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) –  Luton, Bedfordshire8 December 2017

Pros
Good communication
Cons
salary can differ

Some great perks and chances to progress.
Travel Agent (Current Employee) –  North West30 November 2017
Great place to work if you can work well under certain pressures and towards targets.
There are some benefits of travel through work and a concession scheme based on how long you have worked for the company.
If you are looking for career progression there are many opportunities and I have always felt fully supported in this.
Pros
Concession scheme
Cons

Warm and welcoming
Concept Design Manager (Current Employee) –  Luton14 November 2017
Varies depending on department but in general warm and welcoming environment to work in. Office is huge with nothing around it so little opportunity to socialise outside of work which is a shame.

difficult but enjoyable
Overseas holiday representative (Current Employee) –  The Algarve1 October 2017
Working for TUI group is an amazing oppurtunity however the job role is incredibly difficult. As overseas holiday Representative you are constantly expected to be smiling whether it is 4am or 10pm, you will deal with a mix of people but the experiences you get are amazing and once in a life time.
Pros
accommodation
Cons
long hours

Not looking for employees with practical knowledge and experience.
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Luton, Bedfordshire7 September 2017
Seem to have a large volume of turnover across the business, but not looking for employees with practical knowledge and work experience. Lead applicants to believe one thing, then suddenly do another.
Pros
Discounts?
Cons
Disingenuous.

Travel Consultant (Current Employee) –  Merry Hill, West Midlands5 September 2017
Support from other advisors is good but you are expected to work over your shift without overtime pay. The products are amazing and easy to sell, flexibility is the key for this company.

Not very creative
Senior Motion Graphics Designer (Former Employee) –  Luton, Bedfordshire31 May 2017
As a company, Tui is a good place to work. They treat their staff well and have good perks. However, in a creative role, I felt there wasn't much creativity. There was also no progression.
Pros
Good rewards
Cons
No progression in a creative role

Enjoyed working for TUI but the training could have been better. I was trained on the new systems but unfortunately I was still expected to use the old computer booking system for some aspects of the job.

Friendly staff, flexible working pattern
Cons
Salary, Targets

Horrible Horrible company
Sales Advisor (Former Employee) –  Ashington, Northumberland29 March 2017
Horrible vile place to work, disgusting manager and assistant manager in the shop who would sit at a desk and then slag there staff off while you were sitting there. Stupid contracts, stupid targets. The regional manager was horrible had no people skills at all, I certainly wouldn't book a holiday through them. Don't work for them.

None

Your just a number
Travel Consultant (Former Employee) –  North West25 March 2017
Over the years they have taken a hard worker who was well paid (due to commissions) and enjoyed their job and are slowly turning them into an employee who now does the minimum and has no passion for the role. By systemically cutting commissions without increasing salaries long serving staff are left disenchanted and looking for alternative employment. They hold meeting and surveys so staff can have their say yet they do nothing with the information. Concession are the same now as they were 15 years ago yet holiday prices have increased massively. No progress for part time staff. Generally managers are poor and training is mostly basic E learning. If your looking to break into travel are prepped to work through breaks and past finish time with no extra pay then short term it's a foot in the door. If you want a company you can be passionate about it's not here anymore.
Pros
Staff and customers
Cons
Pay vs expectations

Welcome to Thomson !
Travel Consultant (Former Employee) –  West yorkshire7 February 2017
Poor management in majority of stores - unqualified overconfident loud mouths usually. Very high targets for sales and insurance although the product sells itself but asking somebody to buy insurance when they have it through the bank - then overcoming that objection is not so easy ! 50 pence commission per £1000 sold . Do not expect to go on lunch on a Sunday. Don't expect to get paid for any overtime. Team spirit is high and training (the managers that bother to do it ) is very good. Very clicky in most larger stores. Also they will not allow you to say hi if someone walks through the door you must say welcome to Thomson and customers look at you like you have two heads ! Staff retention is not important - robots are easily replaced.
Pros
Good training - when given
Cons
Low morale - treat like a number
