    I have been working at Viking Cruises full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Medical Benefits, Great training, Easy job to do

    Cons

    Bad Management, Not supportive of employees, train you to stick by policy but no department is ever on the same page, raises are wack 3%, they pay other departments more than others with better schedules, Management picks and chooses who they want to favor. No room for moving up unless your liked

    Advice to Management

    Clean house with management in Air Department, they love to retaliate on employees they treat employees bad but if you're a lead or in a higher position you get favored

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Viking Cruises (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied and was contacted within one day via email requesting a telephone interview. It was more of an explanation of what the role involved and a quick couple of questions about my work experience. The interviewer answered all of my questions even those involving commission structure. He was very upfront and informative about expectations.

    Interview Questions

    • Not really questions, more informative - more like if I understood the work schedule and training expections.   Answer Question
