Interview Details – I applied online and was notified within the month from an HR manager. He called me and held a brief phone conversation before inviting me to interview with him on property.

The last step was meeting with a Manager of Guest Services who asked a few questions and explained the hourly wage. Once everyone approved, the Director returned and offered me the position on the spot.

Ambassador of Fun Interview

Ambassador of Fun

Interviewed at Great Wolf Resorts, Inc.

Interview Details – I was made aware of an open call audition for the position and went a read a children's story, taught the judges how to howl, performed a talent, and performed improv. It was a lot of fun, especially if you have an affinity to theatre. I was given confirmation that I would be hearing back from them within the week, and I came back in to fill paperwork out. I then had an orientation day called Wolfology, which was a very nice session which broke down the company values and expectations. I met my bosses in my department and then was trained in what I had to accomplish in my position.
