Would you like to work in the Travel Industry

Would you like to work in the Travel Industry–and for an employer people love having for a boss ? You probably spend hours from time to time scouring the web for cheap Flights, great accommodations, go-to restaurants and must-see attractions – but how about being in the business of providing those things? Even if you only want to have an enjoyable vacation, it’s important to consider which airlines, Hotels, and Travel agencies have the most satisfied employees.

Why? “Employee sentiment of those working in the Travel Industry can affect a Traveler’s experience before, during and even after their vacation,” says Glassdoor.com spokesperson Samantha Zupan. “It follows the idea of ‘paying it forward.’ If you have a good experience as an employee, chances are you are more likely to create a good experience for your customers.”

Glassdoor . com, a jobs and career community where people can share workplace insights, took an in-depth look at reviews from employees at well-known airlines, Hotels, online Travel agencies to fInd the best Travel companies to work for. The report shows how satisfied employees are with their employer, and how well (or poorly) their CEOs have fared in the past year.

According to reports submitted by people in the Travel Industry between June 2015 and June 2016, the best company to work for is the online Travel agency Orbitz. It took the top honors with a 4.0 rating out of a possible 5, for a second consecutive year.

“Orbitz employees tout smart and creative co-workers, fun and innovative technology, as well as senior leaders who embrace transparency as just some of the great things about working at the company,” Zupan says. “Employees also rave about the open-door policy within the company, and a unique company culture.”

Orbitz employees also admire its leadership, as CEO Barney Harford yielded a 86% approval rating.

A Chicago-based Orbitz employee wrote: “Good compensation, fun atmosphere, flexible, great city, great people, feel valued, a chance to interact with senior leaders. I’ve really enjoyed working for Orbitz and have experience a high level of job satisfaction.”

Southwest Airlines holds the No. 2 spot. The low-cost carrier follows closely behInd Orbitz with a 3.9 rating.

Employees at the airline appreciate their flexible schedules, great Travel and medical benefits, bosses who listen to their needs and salary increases throughout their careers at Southwest. “Employees also talk about opportunities to grow, learn and advance their career,” Zupan adds.

A Dallas-based Southwest Airlines employee said of the company: “Amazing corporate culture, benefits are awesome, and it truly feels like being part of a giant family.”

The third best company to work for in the Travel Industry: JetBlue. The airline earned a company rating of 3.8, while its chief executive Dave Barger received an 87% approval rating.

A JetBlue server engineer based in Long Island City wrote: “[The] company has a great culture and nice atmosphere, Flight benefits are a plus.”

Rounding out the top five are the Ritz-Carlton and the Four Seasons.?Employees at these swanky Hotel chains say they enjoy the friends and family discounts they receive, while working for an upscale internationally-recognized brand, Zupan says. Employees also value the workplace environment and the great training and support from senior leadership.

When asked about some of the best reasons to work for a Travel company, most employees cited perks and benefits. Conversely, when asked about the downsides of working in the Industry, employees said working holidays, tough competition and sometimes the political working environment.

“The Travel Industry can be a very exciting and often glamorous Industry to work in and there are various ways to work in this Industry – from a server on a cruise ship to a software engineer for an online Travel agency,” Zupan says. When considering any job or company, job seekers should fInd out as much information as possible on what it’s really like to work there and determine for themselves if the job and company is the right fit for them.
