    Sound Technician Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Royal Caribbean Cruises.

    Interview Details

    Royal farms out its recruiting process to "hiring partners" who presumably get a financial cookie for each successful new recruit. Getting an interview with a hiring partner is relatively easy. But they may sit on your successful interview for some time without forwarding this on to the actual company. I had some success by interviewing with several hiring partners for Royal. This pressed them as each one wanted the cookie.

    Questions asked by these partners reveal quickly that the partners do not know what they are talking about. Just deal with it and make it to interview 2 at which point you are speaking to actual employees who actually do understand the skillsets required.

    Interview Questions
    • Be ready to explain specific troubleshooting process. Demonstrate that you can solve unexpected problems quickly. Demonstrate knowledge on the specific equipment that the company owns (Digico, Yamaha). They specifically want to know this. Experience on Soundcraft desks (and not theirs) will probably not get you the job.   Answer Question

    Youth Staff Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Royal Caribbean Cruises in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview was based on a simple conversation between the two parts, with some normal and non abusive questions. They make 3 different steps, and all the interviewers are extremely kind and polite. They are actually great and make you feel comfortable.
    Since my location was a bit far from the office, all the process has been made through skype and telephone.
    If you want to work on RCC, you just have to meet the skills they want and be passionate.

    Digital Marketing Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Royal Caribbean Cruises.

    Interview Details

    Interview was setup and hiring manager was excited to move forward and then I never heard back. The hiring manager talked about how good of a match I was for the position and I would hear back in a week with next steps. I followed up several times and not even a response. HR never responds to emails or phone calls. I have heard from many others that this is very typical for Royal Caribbean. Be careful spending to much time interviewing them because it could be a waste of your time.

    Musician - Lead Alto Sax Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Royal Caribbean Cruises in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Firstly, I was hired through a talent agency. After expressing interest in working on board a cruise ship, they called me with an opening and asked that I submit a series of auditions to them to determine my qualifications. After the audition process, I had a limited time to acquire a passport and a plethora of medical tests in order to be allowed on the ship. Once everything was in order, the talent agency payed for my transportation to the airport and the ship and I was expected to start working as soon as I was signed on board my vessel.

    Interview Questions
    • Since the interview was more of an audition than an interview, I'll go more into the audition requirements... Good sight-reading skills area MUST. The agency will typically mail you a packet of music which you are not allowed to open until you are on the phone or camera with the person in charge of judging your audition.   Answer Question
