My work experience at Zenith Holidays
My name is Sam Guest and I am a 15 year old who chose to do something for my work experience that I knew absolutely nothing at all of. I felt that I needed to understand some jobs that made no sense to me. I have worked at Zenith Holidays for 1 week and have learned so much about being a Tour Operator. The owners are called Katie and Stuart, and they are the kindest people ever. They own two dogs. One of them is called Sponge who is completely blind and a bit of a grumpy boy with a soft soul. Cyril is a speedy, happy Labrador who has a tennis ball addiction. The work space was fantastic as it is clean and comforting. (I found that Sponge took a seat by my feet everyday snoring away). During my time here I was editing the website using a programme called Umbraco which allows you to edit the chalets, hotels and apartments. I found it easy to use as Katie taught me all the steps and tricks. I printed, filed and worked for 5/6 hours each day. Although the days were long it was not at all a hostile or rude environment. I booked two Euro tunnel journeys and booked a chalet for a customer. My opinion is that it was not an atmosphere that I felt pressured or bored in in any situation I always had Sponge at my feet for entertainment. Working in the office was no problem at all as I was given neat, precise information and how to do the task. During my time editing pictures from all around the world was amazing as I learnt how to pronounce different types of country and cities whilst seeing every possible picture. My experience here has opened my mind to hundreds more possibilities of what my future career will hopefully be like.
Many thanks to the company, the company and the people,
