    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Princess Cruise Lines (Santa Clarita, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I had two phone interviews and one in-person interview. The first interview was with the recruiter and it was fairly easy, just an interview to gauge my interest in the company and to get a feel for my background and what I could contribute. Then a few days later, I got an e-mail saying that I would be interviewed on-site by the manager for my potential team. I went to Santa Clarita, met with the manager and had an in-person interview that was mostly behavioral questions and some light casing. I turned out not to be a good fit for that position, but got an e-mail a week later saying that they have another team that would be a better fit. I did a phone interview with the manager for that team, answering mostly behavioral questions, then was granted a spot at Princess.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Princess Cruise Lines (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through university career center and was reached out months later. I had honestly forgotten that I had even applied. All were phone interviews. First, I spoke with a recruitment officer, and was supposed to be interviewed by someone from the marketing department. But when my first interviewer mentioned HR intern opportunities, I said that I was more interested in that and she was kind enough to forward my resume along to someone in the HR department. I wasn't sure if this meant I was going back to square one in terms of the interview process. But sure enough, HR contacted me to schedule an interview. My interviewer was really good at asking questions. She asked about my resume and targeted specific jobs that I held in the past. Overall, I thought she was skilled in what she did and I learned a lot from my interview. I was happy just to have been able to be interviewed by her, regardless of whether I got the position or not - and I mentioned this at the end (it was a compliment). She had told me that I would have to be interviewed one last time by a manager, but the next call I got from Princess Cruises was the internship offer!

    Interview

    The entire interview process was done over the phone. There were no crazy questions, just the basic questions about my skills and past experiences. They wanted to hear about how I worked in projects with other people and what my past experiences were. They also wanted specific examples of times where I exemplified my skill set.
