    It was a group interview. We had to come up with and present a theme park attraction, and display communication between randomly assigned group members. We also had to build a lego structure, while only one group member at a time was allowed to see it.

    Attractions Attendant Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Universal Studios in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    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 Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Universal Studios.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process primarily consisted of a couple questions in front of a casting panel such as "what is your favorite horror movie". They also take height, weight, and look for overall fit for character roles and costumes.

    Interview Questions
    • It was one of the easiest interviews I have ever done. They are much more focussed on whether you fit the character then your response to questions.   Answer Question

    Attractions Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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 Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Universal Studios.

    Interview Details

    Very easy, ask only a few questions and very simple. The worst part is the waiting time to be called usually for these entry level positions they have alot of candidates and as long as you can pass the background and made it to your interview the job is guaranteed.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Universal Studios in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied to work at the time of the Diagon Alley opening in the wizarding world, the interview took about a month to finally schedule, but the wait was well worth it. I was asked a number of questions mostly regarding information about Harry Potter as they were testing my basic knowledge to see if I would be a good fit to work in the area. I was hired on the spot.

    Wizarding World of Harry Potter- Attractions Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Universal Studios in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    When you apply, it takes a while to hear back, if you havent heard back email their HR and they might help. Once you do get an interview, you get to schedule it yourself for a time that best fits you, and you should expect to wait once you check in. I personally went in at 10 and it took me til 11:20 to get into the offices. Once they call your name they ask you things like, "why do you want to work for this company?" "what makes you more qualified than others" "are you open all days of the week, if not what days?" (then ask if you could, upon acceptance, open up any days.) and depending on what area you apply for they in turn ask for reasons for that location.

    Interview Questions
    • If applying for the Wizarding World, expect to be asked basic and hard questions about the movie. The most difficult guestion i was asked was "Who is the guardian in the chamber of secrets and what powers did they possess?"   Answer Question
