    Good salary, long hours

    Jul 12, 2015 - Waitress in Miami, FL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Working onboard Oceania Cruises is very challenging but overall a good experience : lots of pressure in the restaurant positions, always busy and a little time off to visit different places in the world. Imagine to wake up in a different spot every morning! People from many nationalities working all together as a team.

    Cons

    Long hours, just a little time to sleep after shifts, life onboard is very strict. Different time zones changing very quickly so time to rest is almost non existent.

    Disaster

    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Get the chance to travel all over the world et meet anwsome people on a ship

    Cons

    No one to help you to adapt your sell on board for a first experience on a ship. Managers in the galley work between 12 to 15 hours depending on USPH inspection to come onboard. Bad communication betweem managers and executives as they are always right and you are always wrong. The executive chefs ( all French mafia) are putting you so down that you just feel like you don't know anything in fact you have more that 12 years experience in the kitchen. Too much stress that is useless cause the job is already stressfull itselfs. be ready to complet you Medical before sign in because it is just ridiculous was they are asking to join the company and it cost a lot !

    Good 5star service company, salary not good at all

    Jun 16, 2019 - Assistant Buffet Waiter in Monaco
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Communicate with people from 50 (and maybe even more) different countries See people from countries you only heard about before (like Honduras) Free meals & nonalcohol beverages 3 times a day Free laundry Ability to manage your day super productive

    Cons

    Low salary, super low when salary is in dollars and your ship makes cruises in Managers giving you hard times just because you're new and don't know some rules yet Sometimes company "forget" to provide training about the ship everyday routine for new members. Training about where is what on a ship and how to solve everyday tasks we had after 2 months onboard Promotions based on "sleepover interviews". If a crew member slept with the manager who promised a promotion - believe it or not 100% she/he'll get it in a few days
