    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Carnival in January 2014.

    Interview

    Two rounds. First round is the real interview. More behavioral questions. Good idea if you have a couple of technical/specific questions for the interviewer themselves. There were a couple of warning signs to watch out for though, like when each interviewer tells you that your boss has a "unique" personality, or can be "difficult" at times. If you hear those buzzwords, run away! Your interviewing with the wrong department at Carnival
