I worked at Costa Cruise Lines full-time (More than 10 years)
Great people and great atmosphere
It gets a bit busier when the ships arrive for the Caribbean season
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Costa Cruise Lines (Miami, FL) in March 2007.
Very standard process. Short phone interview with HR rep, then a 1 on 1 interview with hiring manager. I got the sense that the interview was a mere formality as the majority of the interview involved explaining what I could expect rather than the company's expectations. It seemed more like a presentation than an interview.
Negotioated salary upward slightly since I was employed at the time.
