    I worked at Flight Centre Travel Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some amazing, fun people and experiences to be had. Be rewarded for hard work. Incentive trips and travel discounts are a good perk.

    Cons

    Low pay, party culture, long hours without compensation. You’re encouraged to work 8:30-6 without overtime pay to get through more sales and earn more commission. You work your butt off to be able to earn more than the base wage and have no life outside of work to spend that money on anyway.

    I have been working at Flight Centre Travel Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great Work Hard Play Hard atmosphere if your young (or young at heart)! Only worth it if you’ve already got sales experience & know how to do it already as there isn’t much sales skill training.

    Cons

    Management. The only thing I could fault. I made a number of complaints, concerns about things happening to me in that office and all went ignored.

    I have been working at Flight Centre Travel Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Potential to earn a lot however would require a lot of hard work and overtime.

    Cons

    Treated like your own business so you never really get a 'day off' to switch off. Base pay is too low and commission structure is confusing.

    Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. The Travel Consultant role at Flight Centre is indeed a sales and target driven position with performance-based pay. There is no requirement for our staff to work anything more than reasonable additional time, however, because earning potential is uncapped, many choose to work a bit longer to finalise more business, earn more commission and be even more successful. Have a chat with your team leader! The ongoing coaching and support we offer to our staff can help you create a better working experience.

    I worked at Flight Centre Travel Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If your a natural sales person who enjoys fast paced and competitive workplaces then this is your perfect job. Its hard work and at times extremely long hours but if you put in the effort the incentives are incredible. Weekly in store drinks, monthly awards nights with meals and drinks, annual balls and global awards..... and the opportunity to travel the world!

    Cons

    Base Salary is minimal. Commission structure is harsh so a slow month you wouldn't make enough to pay the mortgage but a great month can bring home 10k easy
