    I have been working at Hornblower Cruises and Events full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many crew members have been with the company 20 years or more, a testament to keeping people happy and growing.

    Cons

    Tour and Travel industry jobs are not the highest paying jobs, if you're in it for the money, the sales organization has the best potential for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Advance the Q2, quality training, increase distribution of Admirals passes for good work and extra efforts, spotlight more of efforts with community.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hornblower Cruises and Events in October 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring manager has you fill out paper work and then takes you around to the boats. That manager will discuss what is needed in order to qualify for the job. You will have to take a drug test.

    Interview Questions

    • Have you worked on a boat before? Do you have serving experience? What is your availability? Have you been convicted of any felonies etc.   Answer Question
