    I have been working at Park West Gallery full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have always wanted to work on a cruise ship because of the excitement, the entertainment, and the overall luxury experience. After working with this company for 3 years I can happily say this is the best job to have on a cruise ship. This job has opened doors in many ways, the hiring and training process challenges you in ways to become a better person. I feel like there are never two days that are the same because of the people you meet and the places you see! If you want to be challenged, make friends and clients from all over, plus waking up in a new country, this will be your dream job too.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work, you will be working every day for at least 5 hours for 5 months at a time. It’s well worth it though!

    I have been working at Park West Gallery full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best parts about working for this company are the people and the dynamic nature of the work. Whether you work on board or on land, every day is a little different and you work with interesting people from all over the world. If you like working with people, traveling, public speaking, sales, and thinking creatively about problem solving, you'll love it.

    Cons

    A lot is expected of anyone working on board or on land. It's not an easy job and if you don't have a strong work ethic, you won't last.

    Advice to Management

    Continue offering transparency to staff

    Pros

    Sales skills, public speaking skills, continued & growing training's, traveling the world, room for career growth

    Cons

    Some guests may be more tough to cater to. Can have long days while out at sea, but then more low key days while docked in port to balance it out.

    Advice to Management

    Continue developing the training's so that it's always improved for every class

    I have been working at Park West Gallery full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's the most fun job in the world. Work and live on a cruise ship, and host live auctions. I didn't have much of an art background, when I started, but the training session is excellent and teaches you art history, sales skills, and public speaking skills.

    On the cruise ship, your job consists of speaking with guests in the gallery, and helping with the live auctions. The days can be long, but it's a good fit, if you are a people person, and don't want to be sitting at a desk all day.

    There is also great growth potential. I started 8 months ago, and plan to become an auctioneer within a year, which is very achievable. Overall, it's a great job if you want something a little different.

    Cons

    Your pay is delayed one month, in case guests return their artwork, so you don't get your first paycheck for about 6 weeks.

    You have to do a medical exam for the cruise ship that can be quite expensive.

    The hours onboard can be long on auction days.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, management seems to be quite strong. Keep up the good work!
