    Wizarding World of Harry Potter- Attractions Interview

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

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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
    Negotiation Details
    Pay is the same, awesome equal pay though.

    HHN Show Attendant Interview

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

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Universal Studios in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    It didn't take long after I applied to get a response. I got an email asking me to schedule an interview. The interview itself was pretty easy. There was a series of interviews with different people. The first one was general questions about previous employment and details about the job itself. After I passed the first interview, the other one was more behavioral questions and personal questions about yourself. Then she told me specifics about the position, asked if I was interested in other positions. She listed what was available (a seasonal position or a full-time attractions attendant position). I chose the seasonal position and then was moved from one of several rooms to fill out paperwork with a group of people.
