Fast Times at Royal
Sales agent (Current Employee), Springfield,OregonAugust 22, 2015
Pros: Gym, benefits, incentives, paychecks, cafe, job
Cons: I'm not sitting by window
It's not your average call center. This place is huge and full of suprises. The Co workers you will meet are always nice, management as well. The training is outstanding. They even have a gym and several places to stand lift some weights a d stretch in between breaks and such. Cafeteria is very very nice and has excellent good at a cheap price. Very impressive.
The incentives, benefits, and OT makes this a very nice place to be, and I am proud to be here, in the AC building. Very naturally lit I might add with all the windows.
The job itself? Simple, answer incoming calls, help guests book a cruise, or resolve a ticket, or answer a question they can't find themselves .. profit.

stage staff (Former Employee), boatAugust 3, 2015
Pros: free food and board. Cool location
Cons: everythingggg else
horrible people. Nasty especially on the old boats. U are a number and not a person. Higher ranking officers act like gods who rule over you. If u value life and freedom and are a realistic individual with hopes and dreams stay farrrr away. Bearly any pay and absolutly no respect.

Data Entry Specialist (Former Employee), Miami, FLJuly 9, 2015
Not the best place to work. Decent pay. Management was strict, but pretty chill. Very closed cliques going on. I didn't work long enough to gain any real experience. Royal Caribbean basically fires anybody that doesn't met their quota.

Web Producer/Designer (Former Employee), miami, flJuly 8, 2015
Pros: beautiful scenery, ok employees
Cons: terrible management
Unless you are used to corporate work style, then you won't like it here. there is some promise of advancement but unless you are good at pretending to work versus the amount of work you can actually turn in, then its the place for you.

I wish I never started working here!
Special Travel Agent Relations (Current Employee), Springfield, ORJune 12, 2015
I am still employed with this company. Wish I had never started. Their initiative is to be on the list of 100 best companies to work for, yet they can't seem to keep employees around. The boast about the countless opportunities to promote within the company. The truth is that you have to send your resume and cover letter to the hiring department, complete a project, go to an interview, then complete a second interview. If you are lucky enough to get the promotion, it is based solely off the fact that you have friends in other departments. Promotions in this company are not based off of performance or motivation. They also have an agent in Mirimar Florida who calculates your stats in order to rank you in your department to pick your shift every 6 months. Problems I have with this - 1) Instability of work hours based off of reports that are not calculated correctly. 2) One person analyzing all of the data for over 2,000 employees does not make good business sense for a company this large. 3) When their reports are inaccurate and they cannot find any data on an employee, they are placed at the bottom of the ranking list and forced to take any shift that is given to them. I could go on for days about how many problems this company has and why they will never make the top 100 list from the way they treat their employees, but I will refrain. All that I ask is if you are reading this review, please do your research regarding all of the benefits they are offering you and realize that you will need to read the fine print when working for this company.

Pick your department wisely
Specialist (Current Employee), MiamiJune 10, 2015
Pros: Huge operation where you need results immediately and you see their impact.
Cons: No one has enough time to follow up or invest in pro-active solutions.
As an employer, your department and direct manager are the greatest determinant of your experience. There is also a huge gap between shoreside culture and shipboard culture and the working environment changes from ship to ship and department to department. I was fortunate to work under a fantastic manager but with changes in management, expectations and opportunities changed as well. Other colleagues weren't so fortunate and struggled to maintain work-life balance while others were even better off. There isn't one voice for the corporation. Before accepting a position make sure you have those conversations with your manager so they are aware of your expectations and you understand their expectations of you.
