    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

    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

    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.

    Internal Communications Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Holland America (Seattle, WA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    There were four separate interviews spread out over a 2 month period. First a general phone screen with Human Resources, then a phone interview with the hiring manager, followed by a skype interview with the hiring manager's manager, and finally a two-parter - an interview in-person with the hiring manager and then via video conference with six members of them team in California. The interviews were simple basically asking about my experience, why I was interested in working for Holland America, etc. After all of this, and a promise by both the hiring manager and HR rep to get back to me within days, I still (1 month later) have not heard back from Holland America.
