I have been working at Carnival Corporation as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

The traveling is of course one of the Bette perks. Saving money with no board or food to pay for. And it can be a fun atmosphere.

Cons

You work every single day for 6 and sometimes up to 8 months straight. Crew morale has been low on 3 out of the four ships I've been on. The management on the ship is in such confusion and disarray that the consequences are taken out on the crew members who work the front lines. Wasn't a bad experience at first but as I learned every ship is different and sometime you lick out and get a good one with good management. And the crew messes food is crap.

Advice to Management

Don't expect your employees to happily work for you every single day for 6 months straight with a smile on their faces when pay them crap and treat them like it.

    I have been working at Carnival Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, good work-life balance (as long as it's not year-end or quarter-end). The work is rotated so it will always be interesting and you will learn a lot.

    Cons

    The people, the attitudes, the overall department morale is pretty bad. There is high turn-over and a lot of stress and backstabbing.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new directors and managers to make a change in the department from the top down.

    6 months contracts, no days off, 8-10 hours average working hours, have to share a room with somebody.
