    I have been working at Space Needle part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great tips, great view, great food, union shop easy to pick up shifts. Schedule is set for months at a time but plenty of people to trade shifts with.

    Cons

    Union shop. The more seniority you have the better. As a first year I get the left overs and last picks for shifts. Still I make $200 a lunch shift regularly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Negotiate with the union so people can't call in with the union flu all the time. It make it hard for you to be certain you are staffed right on a beautiful summer day

    Worst Experience Ever, I Would Not Waste My Time Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Seattle, WA

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Space Needle in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    First you apply, then you get a follow up call inviting you to a "Job fair" interview and they try and make you feel special by giving you a ticket and telling you this is a invite only..however they have already interviewed half of Seattle. The next step is once u get to the floor they have seats and stations arranged for the interviewers.

    They call you according to the position you have applied for. you meet with one woman/man even if you do your best it probably is not good enough, however if the company had any other doubts in my resume it should have been addressed early. rather than waiting 3 weeks later.

    After the interview. you are told to go sit back out in the lobby and you would move on to the next station to interview with the actual hiring manager, this never happened, the woman came back out and said he's super busy, but they will call you back for a another interview later that week.

    This also never happened. You follow up with the HR and they continuously said they had no information and would let you know when they do, after calling 2 more times and one email expressing interest ,they still do not respond.

     Now its 5/19/2014 and 3 weeks later and Just now receiving an email that you was not chosen as a candidate for a Job even though you are well OVER qualified for! it was a waste of time and gas and money! because you will have to pay for parking $10 bucks! THIS COMPANY IS DISORGANIZED.
