STAY AWAY

Food Service Manager (Former Employee)

ProsSaid the money was great and the company would pay for everything.

ConsHorrible living conditions. Horrible employee food. No free time.
They always said more employees were coming but we were under-staffed the whole summer. 16 hours days, with no breaks and low morale make for a miserable summer.
Some crew members were trained and others were not. This makes it very difficult to work as a team when some are faster than others. There was a lot of bullying amongst crew members and it made it difficult to get anything done.
Other crew members were back stabbers and just wanted you off the ship so they could keep more tips for themselves. Watch out. The safest job on the ship is the galley stew.
I would not recommend this job/company to anyone. It’s the most difficult work environment I have ever working in and I have works in a lot of hotels….

Advice to Senior Managementtrain managers and crew memebers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Love/Hate experience with the company

    Steward (Former Employee)
    Guilford, CT

    I worked at American Cruise Lines full-time for less than a year


    Pros: -While working with ACL you get to meet incredible people! Your coworkers/managers become your family… Cons: -They tell you that you get to explore all of these places, which is true and all but with working 14-16 hours a day, 7… Advice to Senior Management: - Start treating your Stewards/Deckhands like adults! - Show more respect… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
