    Current Employee - Great Theme Parks UO and IOA

    I have been working at Universal Studios Hollywood full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I and most everyone I know feel it's the best Theme Park Destination in the world.

    Cons

    I have worked here for almost 20 years and my only problem is with some corrupt management. They defenetly are not fair with how they treat their employees. I had to report an integrity issue to HR and because I did, my manager made up a reason for me to drug screened. Everyone there knows that if all Universal employees were drug tested, at least a third to half would test positive. I am currently suspended pending an invesigation. I am never under the influence while I'm at work and I've been told that is Universals policy. But since I am causing trouble for the corrupt management, I have no dought they'll find a way to terminate me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have met Tom Williams CEO several times and have great respect for him but I have reported my situation to him. Haven't heard from him concerning this. It's been long enough that he has to know about my issue. I am quite suprised he's letting this kind of activity happen in his number one theme park in the world.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Universal Studios Hollywood in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied it through online, rcvd the call on the day I applied. The 1st interview is then scheduled on the next day at 10am. We went in and had listened to a presentation about the company and current openings. After that we had took a simple math test. Then a one on one interview is offered. The opening at that time is food stand associates which is not what I want. The interviewer asked me to introduce myself and what is my favourite movie. Then she asked me what positions am I interested in. I told her I am interested in Guest Relations. She then asked me to wait for a call,they will contact me as soon as there's a opening.

    Two weeks had passed, I was giving you p hope actually. Until yesterday, I rcvd the call to invite me to a interview of the Guest relations associate. I was there 10:30 which was half an hour early. there's total of 2 male and 2 female (including myself ) interviewing today.

    At 11sharp, the staff invite us to do a simple typing test, passing score is 30-40 wpm. I scored a 61wpm. After that we wait for the general manager of the department to meet us. All of us were invited into the conference room and we had a simple and a relaxing group interview which he just asked us some experience and why do u wanna work here. That last for about 20-30minutes.

    Then we were asked to wait for a reply before tomorrow night.

    I then leave and head back home, after 2 hours, I rcvd a call and said the position is offered to me!!! Hurray! Going to finish the paperwork on friday!
