Personal Vacation Planner Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Carnival Corporation.
Interview Details – 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 Question – 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

Personal Vacation Planner Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Carnival Corporation in May 2010.
Interview Details – They brought you in as a group and assigned you to different vacation planners so you can see what it's like to work in that position-very good! Then brought each person in one by one to interview personally. Everything went great until the bad news for me- their schedule was fixed for new employees and could not be altered. I needed one night off a week, and they were very understanding but simply couldn't do it, which I understood.
Interview Question – Can you work nights? View Answer
Reason for Declining – They wouldn't let me have off one evening that I needed a week...
