    I have been working at Intercruises Shoreside & Port Services part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I only worked at the airport and a small bit at hotels but found my manager & supervisors great to work with. Since it was seasonal, they tried to cover time i needed off for summer classes.

    Cons

    Again, its seasonal and the ships come in each and every weekend. So it's hard for family vacations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How about a raise each year we come back?

    Pros

    Tips, Ease of Job Requirements

    Cons

    They constantly talk about sending people home due to uniform violations but they never follow through. There have been countless times where staff has been denied a lunch break. They refuse to give people a break even if they have been working for 8+ straight hours. Holiday compensation involves only $2 extra per hour.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees the way they should be treated. It is within their best interest to get their act together.

    I worked at Intercruises Shoreside & Port Services part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Once the boarding gate opens then it's busy work until all the passengers have boarded the ship

    Cons

    Work hours are inconsistent. Less than part-time hours. If the passengers have all boarded then ticket agents are sent home. Nepotism- a lot of friends and relatives of the managers work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not all the employees that work for you are not related to you nor consider you as a close friend. This should be a more formal business environment instead of a "mom and pop" operation.

    I worked at Intercruises Shoreside & Port Services part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Majority of the returning employees are very friendly.
    The crew members on the ship are quite friendly as well.

    Cons

    Management tends to masks things are go wrong or they tend to just fire people even though the managers were the one who were wrong. One of the managers RW tends to care about the security of her job instead of backing an employee up when representatives from cruises yell at us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop thinking about only yourself

    I worked at Intercruises Shoreside & Port Services part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Really great experience. Met a lot of interesting people from all over the world. Provides some insight on the travel and tourism industry.

    Cons

    Insufficient training (was never given a tour of the building). Low wages for the responsibility of the job. The managing staff is very disorganized and rarely send out the schedule more than 24 hours in advance of your shift, and are very rude when you tell them you already have another commitment. No benefits or overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better training. Take new employees on a tour of the cruise terminal. Give the schedule out more than 24 hours in advance. Don't talk down to your employees and assume the new staff knows as much as returning staff.
