    Directorate Human Resources Business Partner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Southampton, England
    Anonymous Employee in Southampton, England
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Carnival Corporation in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very welcoming email from Carnival - had applied a couple of time pervious and not interviewed, so was excited to be asked to apply for this role. The recruiter was very warm, welcoming and open about the role and what they wanted to achieve. Passed the screening section so was invited to meet with Head of the department. He gave me insights into the company and what they now needed to achieve - a bit of catch up with their competitors. Was an hour long interview - left neutral and was told I would hear back.
    Have heard nothing back from Carnival, I have left 2 ph messages with the recruiter and an email and that was 5 weeks ago. I am ok with a NO - but let people know - your business is customer service and brand, you have let yourself down. If this has happened to me, how many other people has this happened to?

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Carnival Corporation.

    Interview Details

    1st interview was a group of 10 people at a time. You basically have about 2 minutes to sell yourself so to speak. After that if you are picked you do another round of interviews which is a one on one. You'll sit on the floor and listen in on calls and after you come back to speak with management so they can get to know you a little more. The overall experience was great.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Carnival Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Very difficult. Depending on whom you are interviewing with. More friendly interviewers hired more people. It is all based on who interviews you and what type of mood they are in. It is very much like a cattle call.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked you to sell them something. If you know the sales process this is a simple question.   Answer Question

    Entertainment Staff (On Board) Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Carnival Corporation in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through Cast-a-Way, and they contacted me about 2 months after I initially applied. Due to a lack of open positions I waited about 6 months until the interview. I needed to travel to Chicago and the interview was conducted there. First part of the day was introducing ourselves to the other 30 something people there, and learning about the position onboard. We played a little card game that had you do silly tasks written on them. Second part of the day was one-on-one interviews. The whole process lasted about 4 hours.

    Interview Questions
    • The card game was challenging because some people had to make up a poem or song on the spot as part of their challenge.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Carnival Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Totally disappointed, Online interview process took two hours including training and a mock call center. The answers to the mock customer are not even anything that a Customer Service Rep would ever say to a customer. Without even talking to a live person I was "not the ideal candidate" What a waste of my time that I could have used to find other employment.
