    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Carnival.

    Interview

    Lots of situational based questions and they were looking for specific internal audit experience. Met with several execs in the department in one day after an initial phone interview. Also went to lunch with the team, which was very helpful in getting to find out about the day-to-day culture and office environment.

    Internal Audit Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Carnival (Miami, FL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Terrible waste of my valuable time. I applied via a recruiter.

    I had a 40 minute phone interview with the director. It went very well, every ounce of feedback was positive. Very conversational and informative.

    It took them about 3 weeks to set up and onsite interview. The process was terribly drawn out and long. The interview took the entire day (9am to 3PM). I interviewed with one director, and two VPs. There was also a lunch with 2 other managers in the department.

    Turns out the department had a significant amount of turnover at the director and above level recently. They seemed to have not figured out if they even wanted to hire someone yet. I think that's just unacceptably unprofessional. I took a day off from my current job to interview for this job and they couldn't give me the respect to just to just let me know that?!

    My recruiter let me know that my interview was solid and all feedback was positive. Yet they aren't ready to hire someone just yet. So unprofessional. Do not recommend this company.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Carnival (Miami, FL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Great! Group interviews followed by one-on-ones. Very friendly environment. The one on one portion was not difficult at all, it was mainly a preparation for ship life. They ambiguously asked how I would handle certain aspects of ship-life.
