Hey Mates ,
I applied to a job on Royal Caribbean, but now it seems that I'm closer to get employed on Celebrity... Well, is this good news, or... not so good news..? :eek: I am wondondering on which Cruise is it better to get employed?
Any ideas?

You aren't by any chance looking for a job in the IT department, are you?

What job have you applied for? How badly do you need the job? If you need it badly, then you should take the first that comes along, especially these days.

hmmm, did you ever met any applicant who didn't want badly to get the job he/applied for? If yes, well... it wasn't me :P Of course I want it baaadly!!
What happened is that I applied for international hostess/ambassador on rccl and on celebrity as well. On my first skype interview i was told that it depends on the interview if I will be chosen for ambassador on rccl, or for host on celebrity --or something like this, it wasn't very clear for me... At the and I was chosen for celebrity, host. I'm just curious if this choise was made because I did well, or not so well... As I know Celebrity cruises are pushed to be un upscale brand of RCI. On the other hand, Rccl ships are usually bigger, "Ambassador" might sound better... even if it seems to be the same position.
so just wondering... what do u think... ?

I meant in the current economic climate jobs are harder to come by. Which means that chance of getting a job with RCCL will be reduced because less people will be leaving for pastures new.
Don't know which position is "better." I guess the ultimate test of that is if one is better paid than the other?
I didn't realise that they were recruiting both brands together now? When I applied (6 years ago) it was only for RCCL that I was interviewed. It was really hard to switch brands once you had the job, perhaps they're making that easier too?
Ultimately, if you want the job that bad, then you should take what's offered. I joined up for reasons other than the pay (getting to do more interesting stuff within my field, and the travel).
I've applied for a few jobs I wasn't sure I really wanted just to see.
