Merchandiser Interview

Merchandiser
Vallejo, CA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Six Flags in June 2013.

Interview Details – I applied for the merchandiser position at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom online and got scheduled for an interview the next day. I was nervous being that it was my first job interview but it was a group interview so it made me less nervous than I would have been if it were a one-on-one interview. So about ten people including me were in the HR room waiting for our group interview and a lady shows up to do a roll call. Afterwards, she takes us to a bigger room for us all to sit around a big rectangular table. Then two managers walked into the room to interview us and made us do ice breakers and play Jenga while they asked us questions. It was obviously set up to see if we could multi task but they made it fun and easy. After we were done with the games and questions, the managers left the room for a few minutes, came back and told us we were all hired. We then had to fill out paper work, get scheduled for orientation and a tour around the park, go to training, and then got our work schedules. This process took about a week before we got to actually work in the park.

Lifeguard Interview

Lifeguard
Arlington, TX

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Six Flags in June 2013.

Interview Details – It was a very casual and laid back interveiw. It seemed if you weren't too cocky you were fine. The only issue is the normal nervousness you get from being interviewed, but when you get past that it was fine.

Interview Question – All of the question were the basic ones. Like "Why do you want to work with us", "How long do you plan on working with us".   Answer Question

Rides Operator Interview

Rides Operator
Austell, GA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Six Flags in June 2014.

Interview Details – I filled out and application and within a week they emailed me to let know when my interview was. The day of the interview I went in and signed in with the lady up front and waited to be called and depending on what job you apply for you might have to take a math test. After you turn in your test they grade it then you wait to be called up for an interview, it is a group interview so in mine it was me and 5 other people. When you get in the interview first you play a game a jenga to see how you work with others, after you finish the game you go around and answer the questions. After the questions are finished your interviewer may call some people out of the room and these are the people that did not make it and after that he will come back in and tell you what job he wants you at and is that ok with you.

Hostess Interview

Hostess
Arlington, TX

I applied online - interviewed at Six Flags in January 2013.

Interview Details – I went to the job fair in January. This is an almost guaranteed job if you go to the fairs. They make you take a quick math quiz than fill out some forms and then you get two quick interviews with people from the department you are applying for. They ask you have you taken any drugs, what activities do you do, and how you would react to a rude customer and questions like that. Basically just say the best things that make you look good. The process is about four hours but after they will let you know if they want you to come to training.

Interview Question – How do you handle a rude customer?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Six Flags in texas only pays 7.25 an hour and you go up from there.

General Sales and Marketing Associate Interview

General Sales and Marketing Associate
Agawam, MA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Six Flags in June 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online.1:1 interview. Six Flags waived my 2nd Interview (resume looked very good) background check is required if not waived. Interview process required alot of paperwork (15 pages, 10 online and 5 at interview) Very easy interview standard. Some of my close friends had harder interviews for other jobs.

Interview Question – Are you ok talking to complete strangers giving out products? Tell me about time you had a problem with a guest and how you deal with it? Are you willing to work outdoors in all types of weather conditions?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. Everyone works on minimum wage. My advice to others make sure you dress professional, apply online for best job selection, and the company is very strict review job descriptions.
