    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kings Island, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kings Island, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Cedar Fair in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process is a rather long one. There is quite a bit of paper work and they had very slow response time with my hiring. Interview is dependent on the part of the park you are going into. For food and beverage I was hired on the spot of interview.

    Lifeguard Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aurora, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aurora, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Cedar Fair in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Submitted an application online as soon as they were open, and got a call back about 2 months later for an interview 3 days later. Went to interview, turns out it was with my two supervisors. They asked the standard list of questions about Cedar Fairs standards Courtesy, Cleanliness, Service, Safety, and Integrity. Lasted about 45 minutes because we got along really well and got off topic a lot. You job offer was not issued until you attended the lifeguard classed taught and paid for by the company, and once you passed you were offered a job that you needed to accept online and then come in to process.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cedar Fair.

    Interview Details

    Called relatively quick, it was a few years ago so I don't remember exactly. You need to apply over winter break because they mainly did interviews in January and February. Otherwise you will have a hard time. Besides that just general interview open-ended questions. Nothing to worry about. They took an unusually long time to get back to me. A few weeks probably.

    Ride Operator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, MO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, MO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Cedar Fair in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Because they hire a lot of people, the process couldn't have been simpler or easier! I filled out an online application. After that they use an open interview process where you come in, the website has specific dates and times. You have a quick interview with someone from HR, then just minutes later, if they're still interested they'll have a second, slightly more in depth interview. If you pass these two then congrats, you've pretty much made it. You'll have a final interview with the manager. This one is pretty relaxed though, she just asks questions about who you are and tries to get to know you some, then if she is going to give you a job she'll tell you what rides has positions available. If you're 17 or younger be prepared to not be able to work the bigger rides. MO law requires operators at those rides to be 18+. Anyway, WoF is a great place to work. Enjoy!

    • For me it was "Describe yourself in three words"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    As far as negotiation goes, wages are set park wide so pay goes up when you get promoted. WoF is awesome about catering to accommodations, so if you have one, let the Rides Manager know, she'll work with you. Perhaps the best thing to "negotiate" is your ride. Don't over think it, you'll be able to work with your supervisors to switch if you want.

    Ticket Seller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, MO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, MO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Cedar Fair in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    After you apply online, you will be sent an email instructing you to show up at Worlds of Fun for an interview during their HR business hours. Their human resources department is well-hidden and you'll probably have to ask the gate attendants for directions. The office, with its austere, white-washed walls isn't especially nice and the furniture looks like it's from the 90s in terms of style and condition. If you're applying before the season, be prepared to sit in a room with dozens of other applicants and wait an hour for your interview. The interview itself only uses stock questions and it'll probably be performed by whoever is working at the moment.
