    I worked at Vantage Deluxe World Travel full-time

    Pros

    Near the train station. That's it.

    Cons

    The worst, most toxic environment I have ever worked in. You're better off unemployed. The owner is about the worst boss imaginable, who changes his mind on a constant basis and then will blame you for doing it wrong (aka the way he wanted it the first time). People get fired without cause at a moment's notice, most employees last well under a year - there's a reason they don't put permanent name badges on the office doors!

    Advice to Management

    Not much can be done given most of the problems stem from the very top. Get rid of the owner in a day-to-day capacity and put someone in charge who knows what they're doing.

Company Updates

  • COVID-19

    First and foremost, Vantage wants all associates to feel comfortable knowing they are working in a safe and healthy environment. That is why we have developed a voluntary, phased-In approach to returning to work in the office. Even before the pandemic, all Vantage associates, worldwide, were equipped to work remotely. The main office has regularly scheduled sanitization and deep cleaning and a ventilation system which constantly brings fresh air into the building. We will continue to be proactive in these areas and follow Federal, State and City guidelines and adjust procedure as necessary.
