    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Sea World in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    group interview with three tasks,
    1. choose a character from sea world ex. elmo and describe why you chose them. introduce yourself
    2. "problem solving, unscrambling words.
    3. random scenario of how to handle a customer service issue.
    I waited about an hour and a half and asked me if I wanted a position. Make sure to be upbeat and ask a lot of questions although pretty much anyone is hired. A girl came wearing extremely tight pants and a crop top, didn't shake the interviewers hands, and did not actively participate in the group interview but still got hired.

    Ride Ops III Interview Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sea World in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was able to schedule an interview for the following week. It was kind of hard to find the Employment Center since it's a little hidden, but eventually I found it. A few other people were there, some about my age (19) and others looked a year or two younger. They were dressed a little more casual than me, so I suggest if you go for an interview go more for the cleaned-up casual looked than wear a dress/dress shirt.

    I was interviewed by a young girl maybe in her mid to late 20s. She didn't ask me much about myself or my previous experience, but did ask if I had read over all of the duties that the position has. She only asked about 8 questions that involved having to describe an instance where I dealt with the situation and how I dealt with it.

    I had heard a lot of people that I know who had gotten hired so I didn't think that sea world had that high of standards. I still tried to the best of my ability to get the job. I was told that I would hear from them in 3-5 days through mail or phone. I got a letter in the mail saying I didn't get the job but that I could apply to other open jobs. Unfortunately, they don't tell you that all the jobs ask "Have you applied for these positions in the past 6 months" (ride ops was one of the choices) and if you select yes, then you become ineligible to apply for that position. It was a little frustrating. A couple weeks after me, a friend applied for the same position and got hired on the spot so I guess I wasn't what they were looking for.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked questions like..
      Describe a time when you had to work with someone you didn't get along with and how did you make it work
      Describe a time when you made a mistake and how did you fix it
      Describe a time when you were under high stress and how did you deal with it

    Assistant Supervisor of Photography (Discovery Cove) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sea World.

    Interview Details

    Standard application process online, posting your resume and waiting for a call to set up an interview. There are one to three interviews involved. The first is with a member of management from the department you'll be interviewing for. The next steps are an interview(s) with members of the Human Resources. The hiring process does include a lot of development and training. It's a wonderful company to be a part of, especially if you obtain a full time position.

    Interview Questions
    • It's a very structured situational interview. Not difficult, I would highly recommend being prepared. There are questions like, explain a time when you were organized and it helped through a situation. Or explain a time when you had to seek another department to help with a situation. (These questions aren't verbatim as my interview was a few years ago)   View Answer
