Smooth Sailing

Current employee

To what extent would you say your company is a sociable place to be?

Scotland's cruise centre is an extremely sociable place to work. We have many events that all of the employees from different departments look forward to through out the year. We host annual in-house quizzes and team get together as well as our annual Rounders tournament and picnic on the beach. Since starting my employment in October 2017 I have attended a weekend training course and stay in a local log cabin, our annual in house quiz, several trade shows and events and more! I have never had such a sociable job before.

How motivated are you to deliver the company's objectives?

The management style overall motivates me daily. The office environment is the perfect balance of relaxed, competitive and fun. The flexibility of management and support that they give, makes me want to deliver an excellent standard of work. After working here for a very short time, I unfortunately suffered a loss in my family. I was worried about taking time off but I was ensured by the management team that I was able to take as much time as I needed at full pay. This really did take a lot of stress out of the situation and I was eager to show my gratitude. I will always be motivated to deliver the company objectives as I truly feel a part of the growth and future of the company. Everyone is included in decisions and aware of the direction that we are headed as a company, here I am not just a number.

To what extent does your company support your career development?

In the first week of working here, my team manager had already asked me where I would like to be after my first year. Our HR department is very encouraging when new positions become available and as a company we always try and promote within. Management make it their goal to know what yours are. I have seen many people promoted in my short time here and the support that is offered to them afterwards. This makes me strive to go as far as I can within the company.

How would you rate your job security?

Working in sales can be difficult as you are often only as good as your last figures. This perception and attitude is something that management have worked very hard to remove from the sales floor. Everyone is encouraged to work and develop at their own pace with lots of support and training when performance slips. There is no intense pressure to push sales and money as the main goal still remains customer service and satisfaction.

Would you recommend your place of work to a friend or potential job seeker?

I could not recommend Scotland's cruise centre as an employer enough. It has a wonderful atmosphere and the environment makes coming to work enjoyable. This is evident in the low turnover of staff and long serving employees. This is without a doubt the best job I have had and I have found my job for life.

Salary

Working in sales you usually find a lower salary due to bonus schemes, commission etc. This company understands that people need security and although the opportunity to make excellent commission is available, management have agreed that a higher salary would be more beneficial to its employees. Scotland's cruise centre offered me almost £4k more a year than any other travel job available as well as a better rate of commission and bonus scheme.

Honest Review

Current employee

12-12-2017

To what extent would you say your company is a sociable place to be?

Depends on the person, I do not socialise with workmates as I see them all day every day, other people do socialise with workmates outside of work. I can speak to anyone in Head Office or branches, doesn't''t bother me, other people are a bit more timid.

f

How motivated are you to deliver the company's objectives?

Poor wage, does not motivate me although I do work hard but that is my work ethic, nothing to do with motivation from Hays Travel.

f

To what extent does your company support your career development?

There are opportunities to progress if you show willingness.

How would you rate your job security?

Good I suppose, never felt my job security threatened.

f

Would you recommend your place of work to a friend or potential job seeker?

Definitely not, Head Office buildings are falling apart and dreary, systems never work properly and it becomes very difficult to do my job on a weekly basis, no sign of anything being done about this, for a company that turns over millions every year, why are the Head Offices not being invested in? Company portrays an image of caring for it's staff and being a great place to work which is just not the case.

f

Salary

Poor salary, inflation keeps increasing and cost of living and our wages just do not reflect this. I recently found out that if you started as an apprentice you get paid less.
