    Pros

    I met great friends onboard the ship and learned awesome things about artists

    Cons

    -Horrific managemement, I mean truly awful. I have never met such cruel and abusive people in my life. My GD and Auctioneer were vile people and the HR department at Park West practically did nothing about my complaints. - I truly cannot put into words how astronimically horrible this management is...I am scarred from my experience -My auctioneer tried to manage everything about our lives outside of work, including how we dressed, ate and asked personal questions and made horribly innappropriate comments to female associates - I am utterly digusted by this company and will forever fight against them

    Bad HR, Diversity and Benefits

    Pros

    Decent salary and interesting coworkers.

    Cons

    No handbook, no transparency on vacation, no sick or personal days. Decent salary, but be prepared for no work/life balance or respect for your time. No HR department. Nepotism prevalent. Artwork is mass-produced and 80% overvalued. Lack of diversity in the workplace. Don't expect a job if you are BIPOC.
