    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Carnival Corporation in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through Cast-a-Way, and they contacted me about 2 months after I initially applied. Due to a lack of open positions I waited about 6 months until the interview. I needed to travel to Chicago and the interview was conducted there. First part of the day was introducing ourselves to the other 30 something people there, and learning about the position onboard. We played a little card game that had you do silly tasks written on them. Second part of the day was one-on-one interviews. The whole process lasted about 4 hours.

    Interview Questions

    • The card game was challenging because some people had to make up a poem or song on the spot as part of their challenge.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Carnival Corporation.

    Interview

    Totally disappointed, Online interview process took two hours including training and a mock call center. The answers to the mock customer are not even anything that a Customer Service Rep would ever say to a customer. Without even talking to a live person I was "not the ideal candidate" What a waste of my time that I could have used to find other employment.

    • Training for a Mock Customer Call Center was a waste of time.   Answer Question

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Carnival Corporation (Miami, FL) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Went to an open house at Carnival headquarters and was given a number. When my group of numbers was called about 10 of us went into a room and we were asked to stand up and introduce ourselves everyone. Every spoke for about one minute and at the end of the interview they asked us to step out of the room. Out of my group of 10, two were chosen. Unfortunately I was not chosen.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Carnival Corporation (Miramar, FL) in July 2014.

    Interview

    There was an open house in which all of us watch a video that explains the job duties. After that you are called in groups of 10 and you have to introduce yourself and explain to two or three managers why you are the perfect fit. If you are one of the three selected, you will get an interview that same day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Carnival Corporation.

    Interview

    Submitted resume, called for initial interview within 24 hours. Quite a lengthy interview for a screening type interview. Roughly 45 minutes, but a pleasant interview. I felt it was quite thorough and easy to talk to the interviewer.

    Interview Questions

    • Not so much a question, as a constant feeling that the interviewer was not sold on the job. It was apparent from the job posting that the job entails a commitment to ourbound calling to make the contacts for sales. I supposed they have people apply that do not grasp all that commitment entails, but I felt the interviewer herself felt it would not be an enjoyable job.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Carnival Corporation in April 2014.

    Interview

    This was the second position that I applied for at Carnival. The first was a home based reservations agent. The recruiter was very rude and abrupt during the phone interview. I still really wanted to work for this company so I applied for another position - crew cabin coordinator. The recruiter called me on a Friday afternoon. I called back a couple of hours later and left a message. I called back numerous times the following week, and never got a response. The recruiting process has given me some red flags about this company.
