Ask questions and have us respond to them. I tried to be creative. Then get one-on-one interview. I thought it was only going okay, but I connected with the interviewer at moments and I offered my resume at the very end and she said she liked me and gave me a job. More than half the people that showed up that day seemed to get hired.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Merlin Entertainments (Orlando, FL (US)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    The first interview was a group one, with a four hour session of playing games and group discussion. This was obviously to gauge how you interact with others and whether or not you can get along with them in stressful situations. The second interview was a more traditional one-on-one. The whole process was fairly painless, and the interview was cookie-cutter.

After a while, my name was called and I was escorted to a conference suite with a group of around 7 other people. The interviewer was an executive who worked at another company location. We were asked the kind of experience we had in the field, given various situations and asked to come up with a solution and also a few icebreakers. I was contacted a few days later and emailed a fact sheet about the kind of benefits that would come with the job and the date of the first training day. I had a total of one week of training.
