Interviewed a girl for a stewardess position and after giving her a brief overview of our expectations and the boat itinerary, she asked if on the weekends, would the boat be putting her up in and apartment or a hotel. I was speechless. Once I recovered, I informed her that the position was 24/7 when the boss was onboard and the captain was always good with giving crew time off whenever possible. Her response was...what?!?!?!! YOU want me to work EVERYDAY!!! Now granted she was new to. The industry and I also try and give people an opportunity to prove themselves; as someone did for me. 17 years in the industry and I still remember the name of that person who gave me my first job, and forever grateful, but come on people!!! I never for one minute thought that my first job would be easy or well paid.
Looking forward to any great stories or stupid questions. I have many stories and stupid questions, so I will reciprocate.
