    Good part time workplace but only for it. It can be better by improving management efficiency.

    I worked at Carnival Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great learning opportunities, gain experience in the travel industry.

    Cons

    You would have to be a robot or the most perfect human being in the world. There is no way under the sun that you will have a life, not too much room for growth, "it's who you know". Management does not look at your human side and most of them are quite rude. Physically grueling if you have to sit for long periods of time. Bathroom breaks are shunned upon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you treat your employees like humans and with the respect they deserve, you will see how wonderful work life will be. Give more opportunities for growth.

    I worked at Carnival Corporation full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It was closer to my home....

    Cons

    I was forced to stay in this company for more than 10 years due to my immigration status. No growth since I joined and no room for learning as well. I really worked hard and my management didn't help to move in the career ladder. If you are in IT and company should train the individual to stay on top of the technology changes but this company don't spend a dime on training or personal growth.
