Alarming medical results may be the leading cause in the slow recruitment process for the Carnival Cruise Lines.
Responding to concerns over the snail paced hiring process, officials from Trinity Recruitment Services Inc., a Barbados based agency, said the health conditions of some applicants have delayed the process.
Trinity Recruitment Services Inc. held a series of interviews earlier this year, where selected participants were chosen to undergo training in Barbados.
To date, none of the trainees were assigned to any carnival cruise line.
Some trainees reached out to the GBN, complaining that communication from the recruitment agency was cut off, with their emails unanswered.
However when contacted, CEO of Trinity Recruitment Services Inc., Judeen Scantelbury told GBN the agency has been sending correspondence to the trainees.
She says trainees have been doing medical checkups; however, with the alarming results, some stemming from unsafe sexual practices, the recruitment process may be a bit longer.
Scantelbury added that the agency is working closely with medical professionals to have these health conditions addressed, rather than terminating the recruitment process.
A local health official confirmed to GBN that the medical results are disclosed professional to professional and not to the patients, as part of doctoring etiquette.
