What exactly happened at the NCLA job fair? Was it a group interview or one on one? What kinds of questions did they ask?

What sort of experience do you have? Also, what is your compensation package like?

THERE WASNT MANY QUESTIONS. THE JOB FAIR CONSISTED OF WATCHING A VIDEO ABOUT NCLA WITH A POWERPOINT. AFTER THE VIDEO EACH PERSON WAS "INTERVIEWED". I WAS INQUIRING ABOUT AN ASSISTANT MGR POSITION, AND SHE LOOKED AT MY RESUME AND SAID I WASNT QUALIFIED ENOUGH. SHE OFFERED ME A SERVER POSITION AND SAID THERE WAS PLENTY OF ROOM FOR PROMOTIONS. I TOOK THE POSITION AND AM WAITING FOR MY RESPONSE...

EXPERIENCE: I HAVE FINE DINING SERVING- 3 YEARS. MANAGEMENT- ALMOST 2 YEARS IN AN ITALIAN BISTRO

COMPENSATION: $9.85/HOUR ($14.77 OVERTIME) + TIPS. ITS EITHER A 4 OR 5 MONTH CONTRACT, THE INTERVIEW WAS LAST WEEK WEDNESDAY

I MIGHT BE HEADING TO MARYLAND FOR TRAINING WITHIN A MONTH!

THE EXCITEMENT IS GROWING, BUT I WANT TO WAIT UNTIL I KNOW ITS A SURE THING...

how long after you made aware that you were selected to work for ncla did you recieve more information on what to do next? I just got a letter yesterday saying I've been chosen and it said it would be a few weeks before they sent me a package of info.

I had to fill out and fax back information regarding wether or not I was willing to do certain duties pertaining to my job and sign forms stating that I understood what the job entails and that I didn't have any med conditions that may keep me from doing my job. Also I had to fill out a form for my MMD to get the ball rolling on that. I've been told that I'm suppose to get my mmd training on Oahu where I'll afterwards do my spa training for massage therapist. I faxed the info in on Thursday and now I'm just waiting for a response as to when my training starts.

IVE BEEN CONTACTED BY A COMPANY THAT CHECKS BACKGROUNDS CALLED "HIRE RIGHT". THEY ASKED ME FOR PAY STUBS FOR EMPLOYMENT VERIFICATION AND SUCH.

STILL WAITING TO HEAR FROM NCL, JOB FAIR WAS A MONTH AGO.
