    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Universal Studios.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was pretty swift infact the first day of my interview i was hired on the spot all i had to do really in come back for orientation and that process was kind of long. But in the interview you speak to one of th HR team and they have a personal sitdown with you and go over the job details for which you applied and assess your capabilities and potential for the job. then from there they refer you to someone in that job department who lets you know of available positions after a second interview with some character questions.

    Attractions Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Universal Studios.

    Interview Details

    So the first thing is to apply online, even if you go into the human resources office to apply in person they send you to a computer. You get an email asking you to setup an appointment. Come like 15 minutes early but expect to be there for at least 2-4 hours. Your appointment time is just the beginning f the timed block. You don't want to be the last 2:00 for example. The interviewers are nice but some are more stuffy then others. They like a person who shakes their hand and is dressed professionally. Make sure to know you're social security number.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Universal Studios in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and did a personality test. Three days later they sent me an email with a link to set up an interview. They didn't give adequet directions to the human resource office and their was no where to park so I had to drive around for 15 minutes to wait for a car to leave. This made me ten minutes late to the interview. I signed in and waited about 10 -15 minutes and was called back to do a 1 on 1 interview. I was told I didn't have the qualifications for a full time merchandise position I had a applied for and wanted so I was offered to interview for a part time attractions position. I didn't feel prepared for the attractions position and really didn't want part time so I felt I wasn't as prepared. After Interviewing me, I was told to go back and wait to be called. I was called back five minutes later and told they werent going to pecede that day but my application would be on file for 90 days.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Universal Studios in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Went in person to apply, and was directed to computers to fill out the form online. Was called about a week latter, and asked to interview a week and a half latter. The interview questions were straight forward, and standard. I was told that the position that i was applying for had a lot of applicants, and I was offered a different one, but I wanted to hold out for the better one that I was applying for. I was told that they were still interviewing candidates, and would be called or emailed with the results in a few weeks. In that time I found another job.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Universal Studios in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was seeking an entry-level management position. I was asked some general questions. The interviewer kept asking leading questions to get me to "admit" that I wouldn't be happy in the position. I was dismissed as over-qualified by "we're looking for someone we can train to do things our way," and "perhaps we might have candidates with more recent management experience."
