    The interview process is very simple and stress free. You can either apply online or at the facilities and it takes less than 20 minutes.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Carowinds (Charlotte, NC) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was a lengthy process. After waiting to be called for screening, I entered a small room with one interviewer to perform a 5 minute screening. After that, I had to wait another 30 minutes or so to go into the next building to actually perform my interview. I was surrounded by other potential employees. As we all sat in the room and conversed with one another, a different interviewer chose us one by one to finish the interview process. After a nice conversation with the interviewer, I was hired.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Carowinds in February 2012.

    Interview

    After applying online, I was called in for an interview. I ended up taking 2 separate interviews on different days. Most of the interview process involved asking questions like, "Describe a time when you ____," or "What would you do if _____." The questions ranged in difficulty, and the whole process seemed rather intense for a summer/seasonal job.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time when you provided excellent customer service, or went above and beyond your job description.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    none, I was offered a job at a specific pay rate & I accepted. I really got the feeling that if I had asked for more they would have declined.
