    Ride Operator Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Busch Gardens (Williamsburg, VA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    After arriving at the desk and checking in for my interview, they just had me and the other interviewees sit in they waiting room for about 30-40 minutes until they were ready. When they called us, they took us into another building for the actual interview. The interview was a group interview with about ten people split between two tables. There were three activities we needed to do. The first activity was to write our name and draw three things that describe us on a card and present it to the group. The second activity was to put together a jigsaw puzzle with your group. The last activity was to pick two scenario cards on common workplace problems or issues and come up with a solution with your group and have one person present the solution. The interviewers are really just looking for those people who put themselves out there and don't let the rest of the group do all of the work. It was a pretty easy interview altogether. After the interview was over, they took us back to the original building and had us wait to be called in individually to tell us if we got the job or not. It took anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour depending on what order you were called in.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Busch Gardens (Williamsburg, VA).

    Interview

    When you first arrive they make you wait with others in your same interview group. After about 20 minutes they took all of us (about 9 people) to another building with a larger room. In the room was two tables and a longer table faced towards us with about 3 people who were there to evaluate how you do. So we 5 sat at one table and 4 at the other. They were all super nice and asked us to write our name on a piece of paper and on the back we had to draw 3 pictures that said a little something about yourself. Then we each stood at our seat and explained why. I would recommend being the 1st to volunteer to present bllecause they want outgoing people. After that we were told to do a puzzle with our group and try to be the 1st to win. Neither table finished but they said it was okay because we worked together. After that our teams had 3 scenarios about real customer interactions and had to solve them and present what our group came up with. Again be the 1st to volunteer! After that we were taken back to the HR Department building and each told if we got the job or not.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Busch Gardens (Williamsburg, VA).

    Interview

    The process was very short and very easy. It was a group interview and we did a lot of group-oriented activities. We were given a puzzle to put together, asked to find solutions to scenarios that could happen while on the job, and given a sheet with words to unscramble. Only had to answer one question on my own.

    The interview wasn't too difficult. The questions were very quirky, which is to be expected since being at a theme park all employees are supposed to be upbeat at all times.
