    Guest Service Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Carnival (Miami, FL) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Written tests and verbal interview with an onboard Guest Services Manager. I was already working onboard in a different department and requested department change. Even though I had connection and was right there on the scene, readily available, it took a very long time for them to process the change, after my successful evaluation and interviews.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Carnival.

    Interview

    Initial interview is done over the phone, and recruiter is very professional and pleasant to deal with. Second interview was a panel interview, there was another applicant there with me. We were told they were hiring a lot of new employees, and that we should not see each other as a competition. The questions were pretty standard, what I did like a lot is being able to sit next to one of the employees for a while and see him work, as well as very upfront and detailed description of salary and incentives. I got a call with job offer the same day, and the actual training started 3 months later.

    Brand/Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Southampton, England (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Carnival (Southampton, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Started positively with a phone call from HR a couple of weeks after my application; initial phone interview was good, then a face-to-face interview with the hiring director. And then, nothing. No feedback, no 'thanks but unsuccessful' message. I followed up 2 weeks later with the HR contact to check if there was any feedback from the interview or advice re future applications, but still nothing. Even now, months later, the online 'career portal' still says 'invited to phone interview' so it's clearly not used. Very disappointing from a business of this size and reputation that they can't be bothered to give feedback after interview, and after time invested re care in completing the application, booking time off work, travel to interview, prep time etc. I've applied for other roles with Carnival since, but received just an echoing silence. I won't be bothering in future, if this is how they treat their prospective employees/colleagues.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Carnival (Miramar, FL) in July 2013.

    Interview

    It was a typical sales interview. They are looking for someone who is goal oriented, knows how to sell, or willing to learn. Show you are driven and coachable and want to make money, and don't take no for an answer, and they most likely will give you a shot.

    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.
