    Ride Operator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vaughan, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Employee in Vaughan, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Canada's Wonderland.

    Interview Details

    Group interview. (Typically three in a group). You have to select cards from different categories and ask your designated candidate a question, and vice versa.

    I made the mistake of asking them about why their dress code states that it's okay for women to wear earrings and not men. It was sexist. Challenging them is a threat, so suggest changes when you actually have a secure position.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Canada's Wonderland.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, eventually got a phone interview by a HR rep. Phone interview is pretty much basic questions (why you want to work at the park, do you agree to the park policies, etc). If you pass that, they ask you to go to the actual HR building for a group interview. There are two interviewers taking down notes the entire time (they don't really talk to you) while you and the other candidates read and answer questions (on cards) to each other. You have to answer 5 questions.

    Halloween Haunt Staff Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Canada's Wonderland.

    Interview Details

    If was a nice experience! First, you get called into a room with an interviewer, one on one. Just as others said in their review, I was asked pretty generic questions (e.g Why do I want to work here? Any experience? Etc.) Once you pass that stage, you get called in for a group interview. They ask you questions based on scenarios in the park once it's your turn to speak, and do the same with the others in the room. If you get accepted after that, you move onto the final stage. I was young at the time, so the only position I could apply for was a children's walk around character. I was taken into a room on my own, and told to act out being a fairytale character (choose between being a princess, pirate, etc.). I kind of froze, since it was also being filmed, and babbled. I asked to change my character, and the interviewer was super nice about it, but I sitll messed up. I didn't know we'd role=play, so I was totally caught off guard. After that, I was told I'd be contacted in about a week if I received the job. I wasn't contacted again, but it was a good experience! It was my first ever job interview, so now I kind of feel more prepared, which was great. If you go in with confidence, it'll honestly boost up your chances a lot! good luck to any potential candidates/employees! :)

    Park Services Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Canada's Wonderland.

    Interview Details

    Two parts: Screening, and then Group Interview

    The screening portion asks questions pertaining to the four cornerstones. It is important to maintain your enthusiasm throughout this interview as that may be a key determinant in whether or not you get selected to participate in the group interview.

    The group interview can be daunting if it is your first time, as you are in there with other interviewees who may have more experience than you do. They ask a lot of situational questions, so make sure you take time to think about your response. It is not a race of who can answer the fastest.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Canada's Wonderland in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Got phone call one week later. Invited to interview one week after that.

    Interview was horrible. Two interviewers and three interviewees but the two interviewers said a total of 20 words each. They give you 5 sets of cards and you ask each other questions that give no room to sell yourself.

    Interview Questions
    • A guest does not meet the height requirement. What do you say?
      A guest has stepped in vomit and is frustrated at you. What do you say?

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vaughan, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Canada's Wonderland in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    It was a bit daunting at first - first interview, and a room full of intimidating teenagers. However, for the first interview I received a really nice HR rep and she made me feel comfortable. The questions were yes and no at first, for eligibility, then a few questions on the cornerstones (i.e why is cleanliness important). After that, s/he will tell you if you make it to the next stage, which is a group interview. For me there were three other candidates and two interviewers. There were 20 cards, 5 questions per person (no one got the same question). The questions were very generic and easy to answer, but the final card was a role playing scenario. One told you to greet a customer at the gate, another told you to handle their toll fares. After that, they call you in individually to either offer you a position or reject you.

    Interview Questions
    • "If a coworker or guest was stealing, how would you deal with it?" (Integrity)
      "If a guest complains about a mess nearby, what would you do?" (Cleanliness)
      "If a guest complains about ticket prices, how would you respond?" (Service I think)
