What will my first couple of weeks look like?

Onboarding and training times vary by department but in general the process looks like:

  • Day 1 - New Hire Orientation, Safety and Hospitality Basics: You will spend the first half of the day with our Human Resources team completing paperwork, receiving uniforms, and getting set up in our systems. Then you will transition into safety and hospitality training where we teach you the basics and take you on a tour of the office and our piers. Make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes.
  • Day 2-14 - Training: Now starts the fun part! This is when you will meet with your job-specific trainer who will introduce you to the team while training you on all the important topics you will need to know to be successful. One of our goals is to make sure you feel comfortable in your new role while still having fun. We provide different types of training to keep things interesting while you learn like classroom style, shadowing more experienced employees, and on the job training
  • Day 14+: You are done with your training and ready to start sharing fun and adventure with your teammates and guests from around the world!
