Opportunity of a Lifetime
Gallery Director (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLApril 7, 2017
Working onboard ships is a really unique experience. It can be hard work, as some days are long, but the rewards are worth it: free time in ports of call all around the world, meeting people from 100+ countries, and most of all learning to be a professional public speaker, salesperson, manager, and having a great level of responsibility in managing a team and department. Training in Miami is excellent.
Pros
Paid to travel, learn sales, marketing, public speaking skills
Cons
Away from home for months at a time

Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Miami Lakes, FLMarch 9, 2017
There's not sense of urgency.
Managers and directive are disorganized, do not motivate employees.
No leadership and the lack of work discipline is obvious.
No safety culture at all.
Managers are careless about employee safety.
Pros
Good work enviroment
Cons
Poor management, Disorganized, lack of discipline, No safe place to work

Art Gallery Director (Current Employee) –  Miami, FLFebruary 28, 2017
We do Live art auctions on board cruise ships. It's an amazing job which challenges me everyday. I love the diverse aspects of working on a cruise ship and I love selling internationally acclaimed artists. It really is the best decision that I ever made.

working with a VIP clientele while traveling the world
Principal Art Auctioneer (Current Employee) –  MiamiFebruary 21, 2017
Fast pace job dealing with VIP clientele from different countries in a luxury cruising experience. Public speaking and one on one interactions based on behaviour and social psychology. both organization and dealing with the unexpected skills is a must in this culture. Effectively managing a sales force to reach ambitious weekly targets. The cons are the lack of benefits and vacation pay, however the pros are traveling the world and education in Art, Sales, Psychology and working with top tier clients.
Pros
Cultural, educational and VIP
Cons
no benefits nor vacation pay

Many things were promised that were not given.

Defiantly learned alot
Embellisher / Artist Restorer (Former Employee) –  Southfield, MIFebruary 10, 2017
I learned a lot and gained new skills from here. It will be good to use it in my art field for sure. Got along with the staff well and didn't have issues with anyone directly so that was a plus. It's always nice to work in an art cultured work environment.
Pros
as long as your work was getting done correctly they didn't care about much else.
Cons
management was a little poorly at the time.

Art Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Miami Lakes, FLDecember 12, 2016
Great company that allows for an exciting work environment and the ability to travel to new places around the world. Days at sea is your long work days but you will have a chance to leave the ship to explore whatever country that you are visiting.

Provides an incredible lifestyle but poorly structured management and little room for growth
Principal Art Auctioneer (Former Employee) –  WorldwideNovember 17, 2016
If you can make it through the rigors of the first 6-12 months, you will have an amazing, adventurous lifestyle cruising the world and making (sometimes) incredible money. Unfortunately the company has no benefits and will treat you as a number and entirely disposable. Great for a few years, but doesn't leave you with a jumping platform into a new industry.

An incomparable experience that will challenge you to grow and test yourself beyond your comfort zone. Park West Gallery will teach you to be sharp, diplomatic, expressive, and fearless.

Learning and creative environment
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Southfield, MIMay 20, 2016
Although it is a stressful job, I learned a lot from this position dealing with sales, saving sales, helping client using every resource possible and being a problem solver. Management was tough bought very helpful and my coworkers were a very good team to work with. Hardest parts of the job were trying to find time in a day to finish every task, but at least making sure these tasks were listed from highest to lowest importance. The most enjoyable part of the day would be the moments where your handwork pays off with a client and your are able to say they left satisfied either on the phone or in person. Some clients would even send their kudos for the representatives they were working with to our management department where these were acknowledged highly.
Pros
Flexible
Cons
no space for growth

Money oriented job
Associate Art Auctioneer (Current Employee) –  MIJuly 21, 2015
A typical day at work starts at 5 a.m. and finishes at 1 a.m. I've learned that the job is never actually finished, there is always more and more you can do to improve your skills. The hardest and also the best part of the job is that you always have to work in new teams of people, you coach and you are trained, you learn and you teach others.
Pros
Dealing with people, internationally
Cons
Long hours

Stay away
manager auctioneer (Former Employee) –  Miami,March 24, 2015
The night cleaners make more money per hour than Park West Gallery's new employees. It will cost you thousands just to get to your first ship: Medical $700 Flight from your country to Miami and then to your ship. Two weeks of intense unpaid training. And if you don't make it though training: 30% fail. Then you have lost the money you spent on the above. If you want to work on a ship take any other job with any other department: Casino, gift shop, shore excursion etc. Stay away from Park West.
Pros
none
Cons
long hours, fines, lots of out of pocket expenses

Fun workplace
Packing and Shipping Consultant (Former Employee) –  Miami Lakes, FloridaJanuary 27, 2015
I worked with the packing and shipping which would be the packing of the artwork before they were shipped out through Fedex or UPS. Everyone was rotated numerous times a day throughout the line and was made into a fun environment.

Client Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Southfield, MIJune 21, 2014
I enjoyed working at Park West Gallery. They were very busy and had a lot of things going on within their company which was unfortunate in that it made my position a little more stressful. I enjoyed the pressure and demands of the job otherwise.
Pros
I could wear whatever I wanted to wear.
Cons
I believe that the Healthcare plan was expensive.
