    getting hired for carnival is not very difficult.
    all you need is any course in hotel management and few years of work experience of at least 2 years.
    it is more easy in phillipines where umbrella repairers,shoe polish guys are picked up from the streets and given jobs with only their plus point being they can speak some english.

    Personal Vacation Planner Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Carnival Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Totally disappointed, Online interview process took two hours including training and a mock call center. The answers to the mock customer are not even anything that a Customer Service Rep would ever say to a customer. Without even talking to a live person I was "not the ideal candidate" What a waste of my time that I could have used to find other employment.

    • Training for a Mock Customer Call Center was a waste of time.   Answer Question

    Entertainment Staff Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 6 months - interviewed at Carnival Corporation in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume through a Canadian recruiter (cast-a-way), and was contacted for an initial skype interview about a month later. After that went well, I was invited to meet with the Carnival hiring team who happened to be hosting a group interview session in my city a couple weeks later.

    It was a full day event, the morning started with an orientation about life on board and expectations, then we played games in front of the group to get a sense of our personalities and public speaking abilities, and finally we met one-on-one with Carnival representatives.

    They asked us to bring with us a current resume, a copy of our passport, two letters of reference, background check, and any relevant degrees.

    After I was told of my acceptance, I was required to complete a very thorough medical (physical, blood, urine) which cost me $500.

    Once I was given the final go-ahead, someone from Carnival contacted me to help with onboarding.

    Between submitting resume to first day on the job, six months.

    Overall, the interview process was a very positive experience.

    Interview Questions
    • We were divided into groups and asked to come up with fake definitions to a word (a la Balderdash) and present them to the group.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There's little room to negotiate. You start as an entry level employee and if you want to make a career of it, need to work your way up.
