    I have been working at Trailfinders full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I joined Trailfinders from another travel company earlier this year and I couldn’t be happier.

    Throughout the whole covid-19 situation, Trailfinders have supported me and kept me informed of every step regarding returning to work, and the new protocols in place.

    The salary is higher than other travel companies, and the travel allowance and perks are amazing! The hours are long, however I was informed of this in the interview process.

    Cons

    Uniform could be more fitted.

    Advice to Management

    No complaints :)
