    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Alton Towers Resort (Stoke-on-Trent, England (UK)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    At my university was quick and fairly informal, once I had the job I went to a couple of training days at Alton Towers which was a really fun process with group work and also getting to ride the rollercoasters! The only cons were that the interview process involved alot of people through the day so it meant the interviewer seemed unfocused and just waiting for stock answers that were jotted down
