    Culinary Hostess Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sea World (San Diego, CA) in June 2015.


    The interview was ridiculous. It had nothing to do with the job you are applying for, and is done in a group. There are three activities you must do- compare yourself to a plush, work as a team, and answer scenarios.

    Interview Questions

    • The first thing you have to do is choose one of the plush animal that describes you. If you get stuck with the turtle, just ask if you can make it a sea turtle because there are no land-turtle qualities that correlate with a person- and with a sea turtle, you can make something involving how they go with the currents (like I did.)   Answer Question
    • The second activity is making something out of legos. When doing this, make sure YOU'RE the one to open it, and have the pieces in front of you. You will not be noticed by the panel if you aren't helping build whatever you're building. If you are out of the pieces reach, you can consider yourself not a part of the activity. The panel will take this negatively because you aren't involved with the group.   Answer Question
    • The last thing you do is answer various scenarios as a group. You NEED to talk, because everyone will try talking over you. When the panel asks about your solutions, speak up, even if you never said anything in the group. It is very important for your voice to be heard, because if it isn't you won't be selected to have a one-on-one interview.   Answer Question
