My job at Legoland was the worst I ever had by any measure.

ProsYou get to play with Legos, and to make some little kids *very* happy. Also, the work is pretty easy.

ConsMost of the experience working at Legoland is miserable. The management and the employees are, for the most part, incompetent, irresponsible, and unpleasant. Everyone blames everyone else for everything. If you clock in or out even a minute before or after the time you're supposed to, you get written up. You are responsible for re-checking your schedule constantly, because management will not notify you if they change it. Perhaps worst of all, for me, is that it left me a bad association with Legos, even though LEGO itself does not run Legoland. If you want a job with Legos and/or you like kids, work at an actual LEGO Store instead.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart training your employees, instead of having untrained senior employees train new employees.Stop treating your employees like dirt. Stop hiring antisocial people: they are both poor coworkers and bad to have around the small children there. Stop changing employees' schedules without notifying them then acting like they should have known.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    From all the media hype generated to obtain a position of Model Builder, its all just a show.

    I worked at Legoland CA


    Pros: 30% discount in product, prestige of working for a global company. You work inside a theme park, so it is a nice place to work, but… Cons: Very little room to grow professionally, pigeon-holed from the beginning as a model builder, there is very little respect for the position internally, specially with… Advice to Senior Management: No advice can be given to deaf ears.
