    Production Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Celebrity Cruises in August 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process itself was really quick. I applied via employee referral and was contacted for a phone interview. I anticipated an general HR interview, but it was the direct hiring manager and we spoke for over an hour about the position. I was contacted via email with an offer within a week. Due to my obligations on land, I was unable to accept the position immediately and they were willing to extend my offer and I began the on-boarding process a few months later. The hiring process was all over the place and it was difficult to get any communication from the company. From starting the on-boarding process to getting on board my ship will be about 5 months total.

    The interview itself was very focused on experience with performers and technicians and what kind of venues I had worked at. Very job specific. We also discussed ship life and what I might expect if I were to be offered the job.

    Interview

    Intense Panel Inerview. It was a relatively easy process, if you get selected after initial interview the take you upstairs to meet with directors for some additional questions. It was overall a good experience although most candidates done make it past the first phase.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Celebrity Cruises in June 2015.

    Interview

    I heard back rather quickly. Mainly because they are constantly desperate for people in this position. However, it took two months to get an answer that I was hired and get the process going. My coordinator was not helpful in anyway. You have to undergo an extensive medical exam. They had a start date for me that was three months out, but called me in a month early so I was kind of unprepared. It's all very unprofessional.

    Training Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Celebrity Cruises (Miami, FL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Two interviews via Skype. The first with the recruiter and then the last with the training director and another person who is over the training for all 10 ships. For the second interview they ask you to prepare a 15 minute presentation of any topic of your choice. Their Skype signal was having issues both times I spoke with them. The first time the person I spoke with said he was having issues all day with them. The two ladies in the last interview seemed to not know how to maneuver through the Skype software and had issues seeing me and then the signal went out for a moment. I prepared a 15 minute PowerPoint which they refer to as a "training deck" . Normally this would include handouts and an outline. I thought that this what I needed to so I basically wasted time preparing a full training and the ladies only listened to like 3 minutes of it. Then one of the ladies asked me if I used the presentation somewhere before. Seems like they are a more simplistic and unorganized organization that does not appreciate someone who is well versed in corporate training. The question asked of me if the presentation was used before was an insult since I was previously a PowerPoint instructor and have advanced knowledge of it. It was only a 15 minutes presentation not a rocket science.
