Safety/First Aid Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Lake Compounce in January 2013.
Interview Details – I applied both in person and on the internet. Still it took them about 5 months to call. If you can get past the rude Human Resource Staff, you should be okay. I applied for Safety/First Aid, which I had years of experience in and they suggested that I apply to another dept that I knew nothing about but they needed bodies for, but I declined and insisted that I would not work out of my field. (They wanted me to be food supervisor even though I've never cooked anything in my life but had supervisory experience- very strange). Surprisingly they referred me to the safety supervisor who set up an interview. I was offered it on the spot after he told me what the job entailed.

Security Supervisor Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Lake Compounce in June 2012.
Interview Details – I went into this with theme park security experience, 4 years of college and law enforcement training. At this time, you had to submit your application in person, so I followed the directions and brought it to HR. On the spot I was interviewed by a HR assistant, not my potential dept. While she was questioning me the question "how many hours of officer training do you have?" I explained that I had both armed guard and non armed guard training, FEMA experience and a relevant degree with emergency management course work. She then told me being a security guard has nothing to do with being a security officer. . . yes you read that correctly. She had no clue the terms were even inter-changable. Then after that I had to define FEMA.... I was offered the job on the spot, ethically I couldn't stoop to that level.
Interview Question – Would you be willing to change departments on occasion (including food service or retail)? View Answer
Reason for Declining – It was evident no one was trained properly and had little understanding of a secure environment
