Getting hired by American Cruise Lines for an entry level position is quite easy. All of the deckhands, stewards, and dishwashers are hired as temporary workers (so they don't have to pay for insurance or benefits). Each temporary worker's contract lasts 12 weeks and by law they cannot re-hire temporary employees again in a temporary position. Thus, American Cruise Lines constantly needs new deckhands, stewards, and dishwashers.
