  1. Current Employee – Receptionist/Operations Assistant in Douglassville, PA

    Recommends

    Positive Outlook

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at World Travel full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    World Travel Inc. has been an incredible place to work. I have only worked here for 16 months but the encouragement and team work that I have found while here is second to none. Of course working for a travel agency during a global pandemic has its challenges but upper management has found ways for us to continue to be successful and to stay employed when many other travel companies have had massive layoffs. I have also used our company to book personal travel and our agents are fantastic. I can’t say enough good things about World Travel Inc. Whether you are looking for a job or looking to plan an incredible vacation, look no further than World Travel Inc.

    Cons

    I have not experienced any cons in my time at World Travel.

    Positive Outlook

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at World Travel full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Covid-19 has hit the travel industry very hard. This company is doing everything possible to keep all employed. Many of our peers at other agencies are not experiencing the same thing.

    Cons

    Right now it is not busy which isn’t providing the opportunity to advance. I am not worried when people start traveling again the opportunities will present themselves.

  5. Current Employee – After Hours Corporate Agent in Exton, PA

    Recommends

    Positive Outlook

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at World Travel full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have worked both 2nd and 3rd shift at World Travel Inc. I have had zero problems with any management or co-workers. Everyplace has that one “debby downer”, but I have learned to ignore them. I don’t let anyone “plant seeds” that turn ugly. I work after hours/emergency service desk, so I signed on to work nights and weekends. It just “works” for me. I am able to home school and attend school functions working this way. Very happy here. Lots of training opportunities to grow as an agent. I have been in corporate travel for 26 years, and this company is by far the best at training employees.

    Cons

    It would be nice if some of the weekend/holiday hours were at least offered to day workers. We have to work 5 holidays a year.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at World Travel full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    World Travel cares for their employees/owners . With a generous 401K program, competitive salary base and awesome management , I feel very lucky to work for such a great company. During these Covid19 times I am thankful to still be a paid
    employee while other TMC’s have had layoffs/furloughs. During this down time we are continuously training to improve knowledge so we will be ready to service our clients with excellent service as before when travel resumes.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any

    I am proud to be an owner of such a wonderful company! During this tough time, we take pride in keeping all of our employees employed! Senior leadership is taking great care to not furlough anyone during Covid-19. Instead, we are taking this opportunity to do trainings as our consultants are our best asset. We will come out of this even stronger!

  10. Current Employee – After Hours Travel Consultant in Exton, PA

    Recommends

    Positive Outlook

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at World Travel full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I just wanted to take a minute and let you know that I was right that day that I said you were great. Your training gave me the tools I needed. I really like this place and I hope to help make it great. Anyone that gets you as their trainer is lucky! You have the patience and the knowledge to help people get where they are going. I was terrified the last few days of training. I didn’t think I was good enough, and I didn’t think I knew enough. I was wrong…you had filled my head with things I couldn’t remember, but somehow I did remember. I know that sounds ridiculous, but it’s the best way I can explain it.
    I hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday season Lisa!! Thank you so much!

    Cons

    I have no cons…I like it here!
