    Contact Center is the worse. Management have extreme favoritism and it is hard to leave the department once you are there since contact center agent have a bad reputation. Management is not controlled or watched and they get to do and treat their employee like crap.

    Go back to school and learn what it means to be in management.

    I worked at Carnival full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Office is beautiful.
    Management is available and helpful.

    Cons

    Schedule was 10:50am to 7:00pm. So it was hard to get things done before or after work.

    It was personally hard for me to get passionate about selling cruises but that is a personal feeling.

    Advice to Management

    Don't follow people to the door if they're leaving after an eight hour shift and making 120 phone calls... It gets tiresome and very demotivating to be told that if you leave after working full time you're not working enough.

    I worked at Carnival full-time

    Pros

    Great company. Good benefits. There is an option to work from home almost immediately following the training. Good price for stock option. Can't beat working from home directly for a company and getting full benefits

    Cons

    Call volume during busy season will feel overwhelming at times. No flexibility when it comes to schedule changes other than finding someone to swap a shift with.

    Advice to Management

    offer a better option for scheduling. For example a part time position. This may decrease your employment turnover. Less department freezes.
