Pros

discrimination from some of our senior management, overworked/overtime without pay, not fair, sometimes verbal harrasment, favoritism

Advice to Management

be fair, on salary and the time of work each day..., take considerations on those in need of justice!

    Pros

    Fair, equal rights for all. No racism or prejudice. Advance in carrier always possible.

    Cons

    Too much work load in the HR Department and the only department with no gratuities given working in a small confined office.

    Advice to Management

    To restructure the Human Resources Department that they are not overwhelmed with their jobs and have equal rights for gratuities same as other department/s as well as an outside cabin.

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

    Pros

    Nice co-workers, good policies, fun product, good bosses. I only left to take a better job.

    Cons

    Low Pay, low commissions, no overtime, sitting all day, older building that you work in. Do not lie on your application about anything. I know of three people that got fired in the 4 months I was there because they put that they did not smoke and the HR team saw them smoking after they were hired.....fired the same day.

    Advice to Management

    Your marketing team needs a complete overhaul. It never gets the brochures correctly, they don't try and populate new customers, the brochures are hard to understand for your old customers.
