Attractions Attendant Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Universal Studios (Orlando, FL) in February 2015.

Interview

I applied through their online system, within 24 hours I received an email to set up an interview time. I made mine for 8:30 AM, and was interviewed inside a cubicle. There was an entire waiting room full of new hires/interviewees, and they were all very nice and friendly. The interview was very common, the usual questions that you'd expect from a behavioral interview. Give concise, intelligent answers and you'll do great! After the interview, they will discuss possible areas that you can work in. I was offered Merchandising and Ticket Sales roles as well, but I chose Attractions as I wanted to do something different. Pay was $9/hour, which isn't great but is better than minimum wage. The entire process took around 3 hours, and was very orderly and positive. They were very honest and upfront and encouraged me to ask questions and learn more about the position. I'm excited to start next week! Also, orientation is paid! They didn't tell me this until an HR rep was going through paperwork with me. Super nice perk.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Universal Studios.

    Interview

    Applied online, completed questionnaire screening (personality stuff), was asked to interview in person. At the interview, I sat down with an HR representative and was asked very basic situational questions. I was offered the job on the spot, and then we discussed where specifically I'd like to work. From there, I went on to filling out paperwork, making my ID, etc. so it's important to have all of the stuff you might need for that (birth certificate, drivers license) there with you!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Universal Studios in February 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and less than two days later, got a call to come back for an interview that same Friday. Follow the directions given to you on how to get to Human Resources and you'll be good. Arrive 30 minutes before my appointment time (1:30) and waited in the lobby with a lot of other people, but yay, we got to watch Despicable Me! Got called in for my first interview at 1:45 and it was basic questions about my application and asked about my current job. I wasn't expected to be told I would be going through a 2nd interview in a matter of minutes! 20 minutes later, I was being interviewed by an attractions manager. He was REALLY nice and easy to talk to and asked more job related questions and showed interest in me. He asked questions to get an idea of where I would be comfortable working (indoors, outdoors, busy ride, less crowded ride ect). I was hired on the spot and then waited for 3 hours doing the whole hiring process with paperwork. Everyone was EXTREMELY nice and showed genuine care for all applicants! I went in really nervous and got comfortable quickly.

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Universal Studios (Orlando, FL) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Afer you apply online, the system will allow you to schedule an interview at a certain time and date within the next 1-2 weeks. Whatever date you select, make sure to be there and HEED MY WORD AND WARNING...BE THERE 30 MINZ EARLY, unless you don't really care if you get hired or not. Go to Walmart/Ross/Beals/Outlet store etc. and buy a business syle outfit (long black pants & long sleeve button up shirt) Dont go inside the human resources building without having a business style uniform OR YOU YOU WILL STAND OUT... of course not in a good way. Anyways when you get called back to your interview, smile and at least say," Hello how are you?" or something of the sort. Be confident, and sell yourself, but dont TRY TOO HARD. The will ask questions like... -Why do you want to work at universal? -What do you know about it? -Describe a time when you were in a situation where something did not turn out like you expected it to be... what did you do to fix it/cope with the situation ... (make up something... I did...and I still got hired) ;-) Remember these people dont give a dang if you're tell in the truth... (as a matter of fact they already know that over half of applicants lie during interviews, all the time in all different types of work settings) ... instead they just want to see that you can think of something intellegent to say, within a timely manner, while at least, yourself, believeing in your own lie! lol But yea, if you're a a guy, get a haircut first, PLEASE... Try to look cute... I follow that in my daily rountine.... Come in, look good, sell yourself, and have the confidence like YOU KNOW that you're getting the job. Interview and hired :6/6/12.... Cant wait till orientation on 6/20/12! I'll be operating one of the newer more famous roller coasters.... but im not telling which one lol...

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Universal Studios (Orlando, FL) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Applied online with an employee referral and was contacted within 24 hours for an interview which was scheduled for 2 days later...the whole interview process is very systematic and not terribly personal, but effective nonetheless. after sitting in a waiting room with a whole bunch of other applicants for about half an hour I was introduced to my interviewer who informed me that the position i had initially applied for wouldn't work but referred me to a manager at a citywalk venue for a second interview.
