    Cruise Vacation Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miramar, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miramar, FL
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Carnival Corporation.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Carnival Corporation.

    Interview Details

    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 Questions
    • They asked you to sell them something. If you know the sales process this is a simple question.   Answer Question

    Crew Cabin Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Carnival Corporation.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Carnival Corporation in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process took about a month. A friend of mine referred me to Carnival, and after a month I was called at home for an interview. An Interview was about 20 minutes or so. I had to wait about an hour in the lobby to be called to be interview, and yes I was there on time.

    Interview Questions
    • Back then the person who interview me was kind of laid back. A small office, she seemed more preoccupied with her paper work, and was asking random questions here and there. She was cool, and laid back. But out of touch with me and the interview. In the end I got the job.   Answer Question
