    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Carnival Corporation.

    Interview

    This was a two part interview. I first had an interview with the hiring manager, Charmaine. We discussed my past collections experience, and then we reviewed all the softwares that Progressive uses. After my impressive interview with Charmaine, I then had an interview with my immediate supervisor, Ray. He asked me a few more questions, some similar to what Charmaine asked me, and plus a few of his own questions. I answered them to the best of my ability.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Carnival Corporation in May 2015.

    Interview

    Completely unprofessional. Company confirmed in-person interview in Miami and booked flight reservations, only to cancel one day before the flight, via email (and without returning phone calls; recruiter Katrina Taboas). Reason provided was a fact that they knew from the start. Do not recommend a company that does not value its candidates' time and does not step up to honor its commitments.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Carnival Corporation (Miami, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was alright. They do everything possible to make you feel comfortable. At first a recruiter tells you all about the compensation package, which if you are struggling for money this might not be job for you since you won't see that for about 3 months. Then the interview consists of 2 people asking you questions. Honestly, I feel the man's first language was definitely not English, the way they phrase things is a bit confusing. But not the worst interview I've been to.

    Interview Questions

    • They ask you to talk about yourself. What would your best friend say about you?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    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.

    Interview

    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.

    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
