Purchasing Agent (Former Employee), Miami, FL – May 8, 2013
Cons: management is self absorbed in only what is best for them and not the employees
The truth of the matter is Carnival is the worst place to work. Management does not care about it's employees and they will lie through there teeth about the employees to save there own skin. If you do not eat sleep and breath Carnival as the greatest company in the world they will lie and make up what ever they want about you so that they can fire – more... you. As for raises forget it there is no such thing as a raise. CARNIVAL CRUISE LINES IS NOTHING MORE THAN A GLORIFIED SWEAT SHOP. THEY BUY THE CHEAPEST MATERIAL THEY CAN AND THAT IS WHY THE VESSEL ARE FALLING APART. – less

Pros: free at all food & accomodation
Cons: no off at all only long breaks. split shift

Managed the Hotel Stores Department shipboard. A typical day at work involved supervising the requisitioning process, daily cycle count and generating food and bev. cost reports.
Learned through on board and shoreside courses and understudying experienced provision masters all aspects of warehousing, ie: space allocation, inventory management, procurement – more... etc.
Very supportive management.
Worked with fifty to seventy nationalities shipboard, no second or third shift, crew allotted to the Hotel Stores Department is it; Could pull extra manpower from other departments on receiving day.
Receiving day is quite a challenge, limited time, space and manpower to load, store and distribute all items neccesary to keep four thousand guest and crew supplied for a week, while staying within budgetary,cost,variance and spoilage guidelines.
The most enjoyable part of the job is getting all the above mentioned plus much left undocumented done as efficiently as possible. Screw ups are costly and embarassing.(miss something and every item on the inventories list is; running out of toilet paper while crossing the Atlantic ocean is no laughing matter.) – less
Showband Musician (Current Employee), Miami, FL – March 6, 2013
Pros: lots of time off
Cons: virtually no benefits
This job is all about people who you surround yourself with. If you don't have an enjoyable contract as a musician, you have only yourself to blame. Try and lobby for a new ship in the fleet with an interesting itinerary.
Pros: it's a cruise line. perks can be great in fantastic locations.
Cons: hours are long and pressure is high.
No shortage of opportunity here. Bold leaders pushing an extremely profitable and successful company forward. Finding opportunities to provide repeat guests with familiar favorites while introducing new experiences for cruise rookies. People are great. International culture is inviting and exciting.

Pros: travel and benefits
Cons: mandatory overtime even if you worked a 10 hour shift with short breaks
Carnival was initially a great job.Family oriented,great benefits and just an overall great feel.The Company went through a restructuring and it all changed and many benefits changed and were taken away.The Company closed the office here .Most enjoyable was the travel we used to get and the worst part was long hours with mandatory overtime and short – more... breaks. – less
Youth Director (Former Employee), Port Canaveral, FL – January 22, 2013
I was in charge of the 12-14 years old club called Circle "C". I made and printed schedules for every cruise. I came up with activities for the children to do while on board using the resources that i had. Circle "C" was a part of the childrens program onboard and although i usually worked alone i enjoyed all of co workers. Management was difficult – more... and they could have used some different ways to train and been a little more patient with me learning my way around the ship and how to organize my time around the way of the ship. I did get to travel which i enjoyed. – less
