    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Carnival Corporation (Miramar, FL).

    Interview

    1st interview was a group of 10 people at a time. You basically have about 2 minutes to sell yourself so to speak. After that if you are picked you do another round of interviews which is a one on one. You'll sit on the floor and listen in on calls and after you come back to speak with management so they can get to know you a little more. The overall experience was great.

    Very difficult. Depending on whom you are interviewing with. More friendly interviewers hired more people. It is all based on who interviews you and what type of mood they are in. It is very much like a cattle call.

    Interview

    They called and I had an interview over the phone. The questions were pretty basic, it felt like she was reading them out of a book. She scheduled my appointment for an in-person at the end of the call. The in-person took about 2.5 hours and the majority was spent listening to someone make sales calls. The actual interview was pretty basic as well.

    Interview Questions

    • I can't remember any difficult questions. Like I said they were all pretty basic   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Carnival Corporation (Doral, FL).

    Interview

    I had to go through three interviews. You will meet HR, then your manager, and the Direct and the VP of the department. You will be tested for Excel skills even though we found out later that the test given was biased as we, power users, did not go over 75% of correct answers as it was possible to answer to commands only through the menu' and not the shortcuts or buttons.
    They will ask for paystubs from prior employer and tax returns to check on prior pay. Be ready, don't lie.

    Interview Questions

    • Problem solved at pc with a real case analysis.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I could have done better in the beginning but I ended up ok. Do your homework on salary and negotiate.
