Interested in Joining Our Team?

Thank you for your interest in becoming one of our Vacation Planners! 

Wish Upon a Star with Us is a travel agency that has been in business since 2009, providing families and couples with the best customer service in the travel industry. Over the past decade, our team has grown to include over 70 agents located in 18 states across the U.S.

Wish Upon a Star with Us Travel has some of the highest standards in the travel business because we believe our agents are family. Our application process is designed to verify each agent applying to our team will carry out our company’s values with the families they serve as Vacation Planners throughout their careers. Applicants will be evaluated on many different levels throughout the hiring process and must pass a background check. Applicants that make it past the initial application process will move onto a more detailed application and final phone interviews.  While you will be working as an independent contractor and own your own business under our company name, it is expected that you will meet and exceed our company’s high standards. As an independent agent you will be responsible for operating costs and marketing your own business, including growing your own client base. The independent contractor is a fully commission-based position. 

Wish Upon a Star with Us has many optional training opportunities throughout the year. Some will be based at our main office in Southern Illinois while others will take place at popular destinations such as Walt Disney World or Disneyland. Our new agent training is currently online due to health and safety precautions as we continue into 2022 hiring. We believe strongly in setting up our new Vacation Planners right from the beginning with the tools and resources they need to succeed in this competitive field. Upon hire you will be provided with a Wish Upon a Star With Us email, business cards, initial training, a mentor, a Vacation Creations account (CRM for managing client data) and more.
