    HR recruiter contacted me saying I should apply. I applied online, called for 1st interview with the manager, called back for 2nd interview after about 3 weeks for a panel interview, offered a job after a couple weeks later.

    IT Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Holland America in September 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter about 3 weeks after submitting my online application. The phone screening went well, and the recruiter mentioned he would follow up with me within the next week. A week went by with no contact from the recruiter so I sent an email to follow up. No response. I continued to follow up over the next couple weeks with still no reply. At this point, I am assuming they have moved on in the process, however, I find it very unprofessional for the recruiter to ignore my mail/phone calls.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Holland America (Seattle, WA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, got an email back a several months later asking me to submit a video interview through montage. The deadline for the interview submission was two weeks before the start date. A week later I still hadn't heard back, so I reached out to ask about the progress of my application. They informed me they had already given it to someone else, presumably deciding to not notify any of their other candidates. If you're looking for a professional company who values its applicants enough to dignify the interview they spent two days on with a rejection then look elsewhere, because clearly you're not even worth a 'No' to them.

    Seasonal Reservation Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Holland America (Seattle, WA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Applied on indeed. Heard back within a week via phone screen. I passed that, and went on to a face/face interview. While this interview was pleasant and nice, they did not tell me about the weekend hours. Why did the recruiter lie? I feel as this was very misleading. I also feel as the commute is very fair away for someone that does not live downtown. I would be taking the bus, and it would be over an hour to get there each day.

    It seems as though the office was quite empty as well, but it could be that I had my interview at lunchtime?

    Personal Cruise Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Holland America (Seattle, WA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Initial screening phone call followed by online skill assessment. Second interview is over the phone by a third party using a script of questions. They are only allowed to read the questions and offer no guidance on interpretation or any knowledge about the job or the company. All of the scripted questions are pretty generic and most don't really have anything to do with the particular job.
