Agent Application Information

Application to Become an Independent Contractor with Wish Upon a Star with Us

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 travel advisors 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. New agents are expected to attend a weekend of New Agent Training in Southern Illinois at their own expense for the travel. We believe strongly in setting up our new agents right from the beginning with the tools and resources to succeed in this competitive field. (Obviously during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic we will not be having our in-person training weekend.)  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.
