    Guest Experience Host Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Madame Tussaud's (New York, NY (US)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    There were about 30 of us. We split into groups. We had a group interview. Had to do a presentation of attractions we'd add to the museum with a limited budget and told we would have to present in front of about 40 people (10 managers included) We each took turns giving our parts. If you were quiet and just stood there, you weren't chosen for employment. Speak up and stand out.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    $11.00 and if you're in retail, they fail to tell you that you will be making wax hands. Having to touch people, rub lotion on their dirty, germy hands etc. Filthy work for $11.00. They won't tell you the job is seasonal & on call. Do not quit your job for this job. Many have done it, and were left unemployed. Deceptive hiring practices

    The first call is a phone interview. Then, you get called into a group interview with about 5-10 other people. There's a third interview after that that if you pass, you'll get a call or email with a job offer.
