    Pros

    In the Consumer Sales Department, everyone is very friendly and the environment is positive. In my current role, I have supportive coworkers and upper management that care to see us grow/ develop and achieve goals.

    Cons

    The hourly rate is not as competitive , in comparison to the marketplace. However, on the flip side, with the commission structured the way it is, the earning potential is in your hands.

    I worked at Carnival (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employees Eligible for Free Cruises
    Extensive and Thorough Training on the Fleet and Itinerary
    Diversity of the Workforce

    Cons

    Management Showed Very Poor Management Skills
    There is a Total Lack of Concern for Employee Welfare
    Overall Benefits Were Lackluster, at Best

    Advice to Management

    Try to show your employees a modicum of respect and concern. While the training to learn about the fleet and cruise itinerary was thorough, the rest of the training was terrible.

    I worked at Carnival (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company gives opportunity to grow up. Very friendly environment and employees to work with.

    Cons

    I don't think there is any cons in this company. The uniforms are reused which I didn't like at all.Rest everything is good.

    Advice to Management

    The management should take care of the uniforms distribution system because sometimes the new employees are not getting properly fitting uniforms and some of them are too old.
