    I have been working at Carnival Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Travel, see beautiful places which you never imagined to visit in your lifetime.
    Deliver service on fast track.
    Work with people coming from places you never heard before. Very diverse environment to work in.
    Sets an example to world, if we can leave together everyone else can. No need for Wars! Ethnic Riots!!
    Good care of team members, in house certified training for free, retirement benefits, on board medical, etc.

    Cons

    Some crew cannot get it right - the true team spirit and this can effect you and many others
    Salary is low, which is common in this industry (also depends on your position and where you come from - due to money exchange rates)

    Pros

    Great company. Lots of opportunities to move up. Overtime almost always available even during slow season. Discount cruises! !

    Cons

    Typical corporate setting with strict guidelines but aren't hard too follow as long as you are doing your job properly. Big company so it's difficult to get to know everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is strikingly generic; the embodiment of the worst elements of Corporate America.

    I worked at Carnival Corporation

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good pay, fun overall environment. Clearly, getting paid to travel and do what you love is an inherent pro.

    Cons

    There is a massive disconnect between the facade of public persona expected of crew and actual ship life. The efforts of Carnival to be a values-driven, employee-first company are laughable, culturally insensitive, and ultimately offensive. Living conditions are quite poor for the majority of the crew, and food quality is barely fit for human consumption.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the people who do the work that ultimately make your shareholders happy.

    Pros

    Really a great company to grow with. The potential of making over 100k is there if you put in the years, build your customer base, work long hours and can convince people to book there cruise with you and not ONLINE!

    Cons

    Lots of Dialing 150 dials per day, long hours, incentive plan can be hard to achieve when you are new to the company! Only $7.83 base pay and $25 for a booking someone paid 5k for SMH. Some MANDATORY Saturday's! People will hang up on you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to provide more sales training!
