    Crew Cabin Coordinator Interview

    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.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Carnival Corporation.

    Interview Details

    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.
