    Cash Control Office Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Agawam, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Agawam, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Six Flags in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied for this position, was interviewed by a man who asked numerous questions. If I smiled or was lighthearted at all he did not reciprocate, not even smiling back. Even though I filled out an application online, I had to call to follow up to get an interview. I do not think the person interviewing me even wanted to. He was not enthusiastic in the least, asked me numerous questions but wrote down only parts of what I said. A week later I called to follow up, and was told that my interviewer did not feel that I was right for the job, that my answers were too short and I was not enthusiastic enough. Six Flags was looking for "employees with enthusiasm."

    • How can you make a park-goer's experience better? This is not unusual or unexpected, but he asked over 30 questions he read off from a sheet, and only wrote "notes" as answers to each one.   View Answers (3)

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Six Flags in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Getting hired was a total pain in the butt. Applied three times, no response. Tried calling, could never get through to HR, even tried Facebooking a Six Flag Park Exec to get anyone's attention, nothing worked. Finally after almost 6 months finally got through to HR, they immediately transferred me to the First Aid/Safety Dept Mgr and finally got an interview.

    Lifeguard/Ride Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Six Flags in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    To start, you fill out an online application. Eventually they email you back to say your application has been accepted and they set up an interview for you. The interview takes place at the Six Flags White Water park, in the Human Resources building. You have to sign in and after you're required to take a rather easy math test to see what jobs you qualify for. After this, you sit with the other applicants and your group is taken by a leader to a room where you're tested on your "team work" by playing some sort of game. If you pass this test (it's easy as long as you socialize and smile and communicate), then you're taken into the job room and allowed to question the managers of the jobs to see which one you would like. If you choose a lifeguard, you're asked questions about why you would like to be a lifeguard and they ask if you've been trained. Even if you have, you have to be trained by the park (it's expensive, about $200) and are able to choose a training date that consists of a weekend of working your butt off for numerous hours with all the other trainees.

    Interview Questions
    • Not really any specific question. Just be prepared to have to socialize and show you're able to communicate and have a good time because if you don't you'll be pulled aside and asked to leave.   Answer Question

    Food Service Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Six Flags in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and called them for an interview the next day. When I came to my interview, HR had given me the wrong directions to get to their building so I rescheduled for another day. When I came in, I was given their standardized math test. Then I waited for awhile before I was called in for my interview. First I signed off on some papers before the interview questions began. The interview was pretty short, I would guess about 5 questions. The questions seemed like pretty typical interview questions, but I would advise thinking about your greatest strengths, why you want to work at Six Flags, etc. My interviewer left for a few minutes and returned with a job offer and a processing packet.

    Applied online.1:1 interview. Six Flags waived my 2nd Interview (resume looked very good) background check is required if not waived. Interview process required alot of paperwork (15 pages, 10 online and 5 at interview) Very easy interview standard. Some of my close friends had harder interviews for other jobs.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application online and about 2 weeks later I got a phone call to schedule an interview. I went in and they did a screening. Tell us about yourself, why do you want to work here, and the question below, ect. Afterward, they told me that i passed that initial screening and sat around and waited for a group interview (hate these). They ask questions and the group answers.

    Games Lead Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Valencia, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Valencia, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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
    Reasons for Declining

    I declined because the commute from Los Angeles to SFMM was becoming inconvenient.
