    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Monterey Bay Aquarium.

    Interview

    The first step was a phone interview with HR, very basic questions. They set up an in-person interview with me. I was told to prepare a 5 minute presentation teaching something to the interviewers. The in-person interview lasted about an hour. Many standard interview questions, plus some questions very specific to the job.

    Difficult Interview

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Monterey Bay Aquarium (Monterey, CA) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Guest Experience interview are an intense all day process, more than the normal interview. Parts consist of teamwork challenges, answering questions from aquarium guests, and a panel interview. Be ready to be "on" for several hours and be friendly and smile a lot. Some positions will ask you to give a short presentation as well. The interviewers will periodically split all folks interviewing into different small groups and make cuts as the day progresses. You will leave feeling like you were on a reality show.
