Work hard play hard
The company culture is changing drastically, and therefore the previous 'work hard play hard' image is dwindling, though there is still some element of truth to it.
Very collaborative, love my work colleagues & most customers, plenty of training & upskilling involved as well as management courses.

Great team
I enjoyed working here for 4 years there is room to grown within the company and you are offered a lot of support to do so.

Benefits could be better but you are recognised for achievements.

Great people and fun environment.
Fun company to work for, they employ so many great people you're likely to make a lot of friends from it. The work itself ranges from boring to mildly boring and regrettably, there are few initiatives in place to help staff transition as the market the company is in changes.

Great company with a good salary and good benefits however the training and first month in store are super intense.

In store teams can be quite small and if you do not get along with your team or your managers are horrible then it can be very overwhelming.


Also the role is very sales driven and if you are not in the right environment in store you will feel very out of depth.


Great HR and support system however work life balance is very difficult at the beginning and work events seem to focus on those who drink at times, which may alienate those who do not.
Pros
Employee discounts on flights, hotels, tours etc, great company ethics and principles
Cons
Long hours, small teams, a lot of pressure, sales driven

There is a reason why they are voted one of the best to work for!
I was with Flight Centre for 18 months and only left because I relocated to a part of the country that had no stores! I loved my job! Yes there were tough times but by far the good times and the rewarding experience with the people you are helping out way these tough times! It’s not just about the holidays and memories your creating it’s helping those in a time of need too! I was gutted to leave Flight Centre as I knew I would have been able to have a long career there.
Pros
Salary, Commission, rewarding, social, part of the F.C. family
Cons
No stores down country this was the only reason to leave!

I enjoyed working here and being surrounded by so many people with great passions for travel. The tools given really supported me in giving my customers the best service. Working as a team we were able to build on our experiences to offer the customers their dream holidays.

Productive and fun workplace
Worked here as an Interim. My Manager and the people in the office were very helpful and friendly, it didn't take long to settle in. There was an inclusive culture; lunch together on Fridays and even a glass of red wine at the end of the day on Friday.
Pros
great people
Cons
Back office staff have to wear a uniform

Low work life balance with a Party Culture
It was enjoyable to work with clients at Flight Centre, however, the work-life balance was very poor. The hours were long and shifts were always changing as well as working on the weekends. There were mandatory buzz nights once a month that we would have to travel to a different city to stay overnight, after a short meeting we would get drinks tokens and were encouraged to get drunk and party. It was fun on occasion, but having to go away every month for the meetings was too much, especially if you had to go into work early the next day.

Fantastic company with great team-feel
I have been working at Flight Centre for 8 months and thoroughly enjoy the team spirit here. The benefits are fantastic - we can book amazing travel deals, we get health checks and fun challenges we can enter, and free financial consultations!

Despite having a longer working day than I'm used to, I think it's the perfect company for me. There's a real sense of reward and recognition that I've not experienced at previous companies.
Pros
travel discounts, health cash plan, social nights
Cons
Long work hours

Work hard and play hard environment
Typical day at work includes making cold calls and looking for new business some admin and reporting on figures.
I learnt how to handle people from different walks of life as i speak to different people everyday.Maintain and build current suppliers.

My co-workers are great we work hard and play hard and reap the benefits.

Hardest part of the job is cold calling as not everybody likes a cold call.
Pros
travel discounts
Cons

Was a fun place to work!
I really enjoyed my time working for FC.

I worked with a great team of people which is really important and they had some great training programs.


They were interested in my growth in the company and the discounted travel was a bonus!
