Food Service Interview

Food Service
Upper Marlboro, MD

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Six Flags.

Interview Details – One on One interview was a fast 2 minute speed interview. I got asked a couple of generic (why do you think we should hire you?) questions. Then i had to wait and go into a room with a group of about 15 other people who were being interviewed, they talked to us about the park, we had to go up and interview ourselves and say something weird about us. We had to fill out a paper and then we all had to go be drug tested. They have you pee in a cup one by one and test it in front of you, if you fail then you can leave because they are not hiring you. Everyone in my group got hired but most of us didn't get scheduled for a couple weeks because they ended up over hiring in my section. We also got a tour of the park.

Ride Operator Interview

Interviewed at Six Flags

Interview Details – They interview process was short and they only ask you a handful of questions about your personality. Job experience is not needed.

Go in there with a reasonably positive attitude and willingness to answer a bunch of repetitive questions and you'll be fine.

Food Service Interview

Valencia, CA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Six Flags in March 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online and the application was very easy, only took me about 20 minutes. I got a call 3 days later to setup at interview. I arrived at my interview and took a super easy math test which I passed. I was brought into a cubicle and they asked about my tattoos and made me sign some forms and then the interview questions started. He asked me three questions and told me I passed and would have to do a second interview. He asked simple questions like why I wanted to work there. The second interview was easy also, he asked about 10 questions that were just about my person opinions (Describe good customer service and What qualities should a server have?) I was hired on the spot and had to fill out the new hire packet. Everyone is super friendly and nice there!

Interview Question – I had to sell a rubber duck to the guy interviewing me.   Answer Question
