I have been working at LEGOLAND part-time (More than a year)
1. Your Co-workers: You will meet a great variety of people some of which you will become close friends with and others not as close but at very least you will be bonded by the shared experience. 2. Opportunity for Advancement: If you are good at your job, work hard, and stick around for a few months or years you will find plenty of opportunities to move up the ladder. From Associate to OJT, to Lead (managers). 3. Awards: Even if you enter at a time when all the above positions are filled you still have plenty of opportunities to gain valuable resume building awards (Employee of the Month / Safety Star) or monetary rewards (SEG Cards mean raffles for Gas Cards, Free Movie tickets...)
1. Guests: As with any guest service job you will also meet a wide variety of guests. Most of them will be normal, reasonable individuals who will treat decently but for whatever reason some people won't and they can make your difficult. 2. Many of the early opportunities for advancement come with a significant increase in responsibilities but very little difference in compensation. Attractions Associate: $9 OJTs: Paid $10.50 but only when they are training. Leads: Paid $11. It's almost like an Internship. 3. Unreliable Employees cause chaos for everyone else. When some one doesn't show up to work the Leads have to reorganize where everyone else is and who is doing breaks.
Advice to Management
1. Give the Leads some software based tools to help them deal with no call no shows / call ins. Have it keep track of people who can be used as a realistic backup plan. 2. Pay OJTs $10.50 per hour whether or not they are training and Leads at least $12. I understand you have a responsibility to protect and increase your bottom line but I also know that these are some of your best employees who are being underpaid and other businesses realize this and are stealing them away. In 1 year I have seen 2 Leads leave for better jobs and 2 leave for another opportunity within Legoland. I have seen one Radio Trained OJT leave and 3 OJTs leave and one more leave for another position within Legoland. 6 people gone to 3 retained.

Helpful (1)Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at LEGOLAND.
Standard group interview. After you learn about the park, you have to tour the park; so ladies, don't wear your high hills unless you have a change of flats. They later "offered" another job interview for a permanent position in the call center for EVERYONE. I used quotation marks, because at first, they managers in the call center wanted to GIVE the position to one of the favorites, but HR stated that was not legal and that they had to give everyone a change.
