Hostess/Server (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – December 21, 2015
A typical work day is interacting with guests making them the first priority. I learned about being apart of a team and a culture that is always followed. The hardest part of the job is making sure that everything you do has a positive effect on your team members and the guests.
Productive and unforgettable memories aboard the Odyssey

Everyday brings a new challenge as well as new task. Fun work environment cruising and serving at the same time. Supportive management and awesome colleagues which made the job even more easier. Became more of a family rather than just work.

The management team is okay. we have fun and hard working co-workers. i wouldn't consider anything on my job hard if you put your mind to it, it can be done. seeing my guest leave with a big smile in their face.
Deckhand (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – April 1, 2015
Each day is difficult especially knowing you wont get paid a lot for working those hours. The only reason I keep coming back to work here at the boats is because I enjoy working with all the marine crew and restaurant staff. The work can be long and strenuous and with little shared knowledge from the higher ups to the junior deckhands. The basic skills are taught by the captains and continued by the mates and senior deckhands, but repair knowledge is kept to individuals to keep themselves useful and prevention of being potentially fired well knowing they're uncooperative to junior deckhands and mistreating them such.
Minimum wage is known when applying, but they expect more work out of the deckhands than what they're being paid for which becomes unfair to the junior deckhands who have to work like first mates but get paid like McDonald employees.
Employees have fun and work hard equally, 3 chances to mess up before getting fired
