Ride Operator Interview

Ride Operator
Denver, CO

I applied online and interviewed at Elitch Gardens.

Interview Details – Once you put in your apllication either online or in-person, someone from HR will contact you and schedule an interview and inform you of the papers you will need to bring. There will be a group of you interviewing at the same and they will have you all to answer questions (at your discretion) one after the other. The questions are pretty basic-they'll will ask why you want there. After the group interview they will take you one-by-one to an outside room and tell you if you got the job, what the pay is, etc( they'll call it 'individuak interviews' but its really not). The ones they leave behind will be left to play some type of "family-nite" game so you all can get to know each other. There is only one interview. Be prepared to take a drug-test on the spot if you get the job- some of my co-workers told me they were allowed to take it a different time but I wouldn't rely on that; one guy had to take it at the same time I did, failed, and I never saw him again. Also, have at least three questions prepared, and know something about the company( easist is about the 'pre-view' day or something like that-found on the website).Before you leave you will schedule an orientation day which is the big information meeting. Pretty simple. The people are pretty nice and helpful, just make sure you bring all the necessary papaerwork so you won't have to make an additional trip to HR.

Interview Question – None when I interviewed.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They took to a room, told me I got the job, asked if I wanted it, had me fill out some intial paper work, told to I would take a drug test right then, asked to identify the days I needed off.

Very Easy Interview

Food Service Interview

Food Service
Denver, CO

The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Elitch Gardens in March 2008.

Interview Details – Got a phone call to come and interview. Went in and had an interview with some supervisor at the park. She asked me the normal questions like weaknesses and strengths, high school grades, etc. Then I had to come back a few days later for an interview with a loss prevention officer. He asked me stuff like criminal history, drugs, alcohol, have you ever stolen anything. Basically, they will hire anyone. They even hired 14 year olds. Most people working here are high school students and complete morons, but it's what you'd expect at an amusement park. So, after the interview with the LP guy, I filled out some forms and he gave something saying I had to go take a drug test within the next days. I took the drug test, and then had an orientation. The orientation was in a big room and they just should us a powerpoint with basic training stuff. Then they showed us around the park. They interview process is kind of long for just a stupid summer job, but they will hire anyone willing to work for them.

Interview Question – What are your high school grades?   Answer Question
