    No opinion of CEO

    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.

    The department is growing and expanding, recognition programs, and provide you with training on courses.

    Cons

    Communication is lacking from other departments and autonomy does not exist.

    Advice to Management

    More feedback should be provided when employee is starting anew.

    I worked at Carnival full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people, good location and opportunity for low paying jobs. Once you reach a certain pay grade they tend to eliminate positions.

    Cons

    You must watch you back especially with the PVP department, that area is full of sharks from upper management on down. Outside that area the place is good! Speak a lot of core values, but practice very few of them.

    Advice to Management

    Consider your actions before eliminating someone, actually speak with the other areas that might be affected by making a blind decision based on someone who may not know exactly what is going on. There is a lot of decisions made without thought.
