Join the Team

The Lifestyle

Our art teams must strive for excellence and work hard, but in return, they are encouraged to enjoy the unique amenities working aboard a cruise ship has to offer. Our teams are welcome to attend the top-notch Broadway-style shows, live music or performances from stand-up comedians; to enjoy the ship’s bars and nightclubs, including “staff only” lounges; and dine in the multitude of passenger and staff restaurants.

All meals and accommodations on board are provided. Our Associates and Gallery Directors share a cabin with one other person, typically another Park West team member of the same gender, while Auctioneers have their own cabin. Depending on the assigned ship, Associate Auctioneers, Gallery Directors and Principal Auctioneers may have a guest, staff or crew cabin.

Principal Auctioneers are placed in a single cabin, which may be shared by a couple if the Principal Auctioneer wishes to travel with a spouse or partner. Associate Auctioneers and Gallery Directors share a cabin with one other person, typically someone of the same gender from the onboard art team. Cabin space is available for Principal or Associate Auctioneer couples if necessary.

    "Before joining the training, I was aware of what it was going to be like, but it went over my expectations. Not only was there intense studying, but also a lot of excitement, meetings with successful people, and live artists presentations. All of the training is an unforgettable experience. Now I am ready to join this new and exciting career."

    "Working for a company that has such a great relationship with the artists we represent has been a great honor. I myself have developed a fantastic relationship with most of the artists we represent. The artworks we help our clients get involved with are some of the very best quality, created by some of the world’s most sought after and highly decorated artists. Many of them have been featured in some of the world’s top museums and have had several books written about them. Being able to spend time with these artists, represent them, and represent this great company has truly been an honor."
