    Interview

    The first interview was a group interview with around 200 people in the same room, divided into table groups of around 10 people. We played games like Jenga and People Bingo. The interviewers were mostly the supervisors and were friendly and encouraged conversation. We also had to do a short math test at the end which you needed to pass if you wanted to work in any of the cash positions.

    Interview

    Applied online and was called in for a group interview. In the group interview, you are sitting with about 10 other people around a table where you play games and ask each other situational questions. There is a supervisor that will be listening to everybody talk. After the group interview, I was called to have a 1:1 interview. The questions were pretty basic, just relax and be yourself.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pacific National Exhibition.

    Interview

    The first interview was with a group of around 8 people. You would play 2 truth and 1 lie, Janga, and creativity word games. With the Janga game, each piece has a number to which it corresponds to a situational question. Honestly, it does feel like a gathering, it was actually fun. At the very end you would do some math questions, nothing too difficult. For the second interview, I received a phone call. The second interview was also in a group. We just had to say why we wanted to work in games and solved a math question.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pacific National Exhibition (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in August 2013.

    Interview

    When you first apply you receive an email in the month of July, usually, telling you that you've been considered as a possible employee and that your invited to go to a group interview. There are three possible dates that the group interviews are held, due to the large number of applicants. When you arrive you sign in and you're given a number, that number is the table you'll sit at. When the group interview starts you full out which departments you'll like to work in then you'll play a few games to test your skills and problem solving. After that there is a math test to test your skills in math, don't worry to much if you fail because either you don't want to work with cash or they'll place you in a different department. This group interview applies to all departments. The one on one interview happens a few weeks later, if you got an email. The second interview is straightforward they'll ask you generic questions based on skill, experience, and problem solving. When the interview is done they will either contact via email to say you're hired or you won't receive one. The second interview applies only to the guest services department.

    Interview

    Groups of group interviews taken place at the same time for Food and Beverage jobs. Normal interview questions asked in the table by a table lead. Mostly to gauge personality and spoken language. Hope you passed elementary school math because there is a basic skills test in math. Overall, pretty easy if you just speak and lets others speak.
