    I have been working at Carnival Corporation full-time for 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)

    I have been working at Carnival Corporation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Entry level position with an opportunity to earn up to $70K - $75K. You have to be able to work any schedule between 7 am and 2 am with one weekend shift per week, but the call center does a shift bid twice per year. Your shift bid ranking is based on your productivity versus seniority. If you're good at sales you don't have to wait until someone resigns, retires or gets fired before you can work your desired shift. Health insurance and other benefits are pretty good in comparison to other companies in South Florida.

    Cons

    Getting approved for PTO can be difficult during certain times of the year due to the nature of it being a call center position. Enter your PTO as in advance as possible. If you're waitlisted choose other days if possible otherwise your original request for PTO may come and go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management truly seems to care and wants to see their employee succeed. There are too many negative employees that have been here forever and complain about everything especially sales quotas. It is a sales job of course there will be sales quotes. Duh! My advice to management is to get rid of your cancerous employees. They make the environment unpleasant for those that actually want to be here and make money.
