Purchasing Clerk Interview

Anonymous Employee
Santa Clarita, CA

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

Interview Details – I applied online, then gave HR a call and I was able to set up an interview for the next day. I went in to HR office, I was given a math test, passed it, then a face to face interview proceeded. Went over my online application and regulations etc. Got asked 2 questions. Then she said I passed the interview and gave me a 6 page test booklet to test my skills such as grammar, writing, math. Passed the evaluation and was told purchasing department will call me within a week or so to set up a second interview, after my background check was clear. A week later purchasing department called me and went in to interview the same day and was told I was hired and start this week.

Entertainment Technician Interview

Entertainment Technician
Valencia, CA

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Six Flags in June 2013.

Interview Details – Really easy process. After applying, I called to set up an interview and was given a date and time. I showed up about 15 minutes early and they gave me a math proficiency test. Incredibly easy to do, it's all 4th grade level. After giving it back, I waited a few minutes more and was taken into a cubicle to be interviewed. The lady was incredibly nice and made me feel welcome. I filled out some legal documents (the usual stuff; tattoo policy, background check, etc.) and then the interview commenced. She asked me about five questions before directing me to the back of the room where I filled out the papers needed for the Entertainment Tech position. Most of the questions that they asked me were situational, so they were pretty easy.

Interview Question – What are some things you would like to learn while working for us?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I was given a different job offer somewhere else.

Ride Operator Interview

Ride Operator
Los Angeles, CA

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

Interview Details – Applied online, got called 3 days later (missed the call, but they left a voice mail), didn't call back. Got another call and scheduled an interview, told me to dress buisness casual (if you don't they won't hire you or they will reschedule you). When you walk in to HR you go to the front desk, an they will ask you to do a six flags standardize math questioniare which is extremely easy. After that you they ask you to sit down and wait till you get called. When you get called they will lead you too a cubicle and ask you if the info you put on the online application is correct. They will go thru some policies and you sign and intial papers. They will ask why you picked six flags, and some other questions that are situation based such as an angry customers or guest or how you would convince a neighbor to go to six flags. After that she told me I passed my first interview. She handed me a processing packet that had the parks policies and tax forms and medical forms to fill out and a background check release form. Fill that out and handed it to front desk, and then you sit and wait again. You get called and they start goinh over the park policies on hair and other stuff. You intial and sign a few papers, and then they measure you for your uniform. They will make a photocopy of your drivers licence (in my case) and look at your social too see if its legit. After that they will tell you that you are hired and will call back to schedule for discovery training after your background check is cleared.

Negotiation Details – None, you get payed $8.00 in California
