I have been working at Holland America part-time (Less than a year)
Great location with opportunity to experience nature; super staff and coworkers and great spirit.
The five plus month season flies by too quickly.
Advice to Management
Increase use of experienced guides to train newcomers
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Holland America (Seattle, WA) in April 2013.
The interview process was quick and easy. I went in for a first round interview with three folks from the department that lasted about an hour, left feeling not that great. Was called back a few days later and asked to come in for a second interview. Second interview was similar to the first - very formal, but relaxed. A few days after that, I was notified I got the job.
I wasn't given an timeline or application schedule or anything, I had to ask what the next steps were and when I could expect to hear something.
