    I worked at Madame Tussaud's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The magic passes that give you access to quite a lot places worldwide under Merlins
    and the wonderful colleagues

    Cons

    Very judgmental management they judge you based on your character not work performance. Promotion path is virtually unobtainable and it's very very slow process only the selected are nominated otherwise forget it.

    Management between managers varies from very good to borderline and mediocre
    Dated equipments with no clear direction for a foreseeable future and a very turnover rates within 4 years of opening and the staff working there are mainly made up of part-timers and a substantial amount of full-timers.

    Advice to Management

    always listen to your staff don't give empty promises and standard reply
    cherish talents before the talents move on for good.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Madame Tussaud's (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Went to an assessment where they have a group of applicants. Usually they have between 2-4 recruiters there keeping an eye. They usually conduct activities to see how you bond etc. they asked us to bring something in that belonged to us and explain the similarities. Although this was over 2 years ago and may have changed since then.

    Then if you're successful you get called into a 2nd interview - which for me happened on the same day.

    Interview Questions

    • They posed a hypothetical situation on what would we do if we (I.e. Applicants) crashed and was stranded. We had to come up with ways on how we would survive.   Answer Question
