Games Lead Interview

Games Lead
Valencia, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Six Flags in May 2013.

Interview Details – After applying online, I received a call for a phone interview in about two weeks. This initial interview was really simple and set out to find more information about the individual. I was then contacted two days later for an in-person interview at the theme park. The HR office was a small bungalow type structure on the outskirts of the parking structure. The room was small and cramped and only accommodated (seating) about half of the applicants that had a scheduled interview. Once my turn came, I was asked a series of questions that primarily asked "what would you do in this situation". I was hired on the spot and set to start training the following week. Overall the interview process is simple and efficient. To guarantee employment simply follow all instructions and maintain a high degree of professionalism.

Interview Question – The hardest section of the interview comprised of improvising a speech or sales pitch based on a set of rules the interviewer gives. The purpose of this seemed to make sure you are able to speak clearly, think on your feet, and are able to make contact and be outgoing with potential customers/ participants.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I declined because the commute from Los Angeles to SFMM was becoming inconvenient.

Merchandiser Interview

Merchandiser
Vallejo, CA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Six Flags in June 2013.

Interview Details – I applied for the merchandiser position at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom online and got scheduled for an interview the next day. I was nervous being that it was my first job interview but it was a group interview so it made me less nervous than I would have been if it were a one-on-one interview. So about ten people including me were in the HR room waiting for our group interview and a lady shows up to do a roll call. Afterwards, she takes us to a bigger room for us all to sit around a big rectangular table. Then two managers walked into the room to interview us and made us do ice breakers and play Jenga while they asked us questions. It was obviously set up to see if we could multi task but they made it fun and easy. After we were done with the games and questions, the managers left the room for a few minutes, came back and told us we were all hired. We then had to fill out paper work, get scheduled for orientation and a tour around the park, go to training, and then got our work schedules. This process took about a week before we got to actually work in the park.

Interview Question – If you could be any character from a TV show, who would you be and why?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Do not get to negotiate anything except for the days and hours you are able to work.

Lifeguard Interview

Lifeguard
Arlington, TX

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Six Flags in June 2013.

Interview Details – It was a very casual and laid back interveiw. It seemed if you weren't too cocky you were fine. The only issue is the normal nervousness you get from being interviewed, but when you get past that it was fine.

Interview Question – All of the question were the basic ones. Like "Why do you want to work with us", "How long do you plan on working with us".   Answer Question

Rides Operator Interview

Rides Operator
Austell, GA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Six Flags in June 2014.

Interview Details – I filled out and application and within a week they emailed me to let know when my interview was. The day of the interview I went in and signed in with the lady up front and waited to be called and depending on what job you apply for you might have to take a math test. After you turn in your test they grade it then you wait to be called up for an interview, it is a group interview so in mine it was me and 5 other people. When you get in the interview first you play a game a jenga to see how you work with others, after you finish the game you go around and answer the questions. After the questions are finished your interviewer may call some people out of the room and these are the people that did not make it and after that he will come back in and tell you what job he wants you at and is that ok with you.

Hostess Interview

Hostess

I applied online - interviewed at Six Flags in January 2013.

Interview Details – I went to the job fair in January. This is an almost guaranteed job if you go to the fairs. They make you take a quick math quiz than fill out some forms and then you get two quick interviews with people from the department you are applying for. They ask you have you taken any drugs, what activities do you do, and how you would react to a rude customer and questions like that. Basically just say the best things that make you look good. The process is about four hours but after they will let you know if they want you to come to training.

Negotiation Details – Six Flags in texas only pays 7.25 an hour and you go up from there.
