    Ride Operator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Williamsburg, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Busch Gardens (Williamsburg, VA) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Super easy and super fun interview. They split us into groups and all you had to do was draw three things that describe yourself, try to solve a jigsaw puzzle with your group, and present what you would do in certain scenarios based off of what your group decided. As long as you smile, make eye contact, act like you want to be there, speak more than once, and step up during the activities, you will be fine.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Busch Gardens (Tampa, FL) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR to set up an in-person interview. The interview was at 10 AM and it started at 10:45 AM. It was a panel interview with three other people. All of them were super friendly and the questions were mostly behavioral.
    Even though I was not selected to continue with the process, I was very happy with the way they handled the process. HR took the time to call me that same week to let me know they were moving forward with a different candidate, which I really appreciated since typically companies don't even email candidates to let them know or if they do, it takes forever.

    Food Service Attendant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Busch Gardens (Tampa, FL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly simple. It was a group interview of 8+ people. We first went into a room and was greeted by two other employees watching us while we were spoken to by the main interviewer. They were there to see how we worked with the group that we sat with. We started off by writing our names down and the drawing 3 things that represented us. After that we were given 2 scenarios and we talked to our groups on how we would handle the situations. Be sure to emphasis on apologizing to the customer. "The customer is always right, don't let them leave upset." After that the group interview was over, by now it's been 20 minutes, maybe even less. Then they called you in individually and told you if you got the job or not. They are looking for people who have full time availability even if they post that it's a part time job. They will say that they will let you know if they have a position for you within the next week, but they never called. Just their way of rejecting you without saying no. They keep your application on filed for 90 days, meaning you can't apply for another position until then. Out of the 8 of us that interviewed, only 3 people got hired.
