    Very intensive, it is a group interview so be prepared to shine and really stand out. A panel will conduct the interview in which you will be asked questions one-by-one. You will also be expected to show off your ability to understand the exhibits and events by performing your knowledge of an exhibit in front of the panel/other interviewees.

    There were two rounds of interview, phone and in person. The interview was with the main people you would be training with in the department. They made the process very comfortable and asked general questions as well as giving time for you to ask questions as well.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Georgia Aquarium (Atlanta, GA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    There was a group interview with 4 or five scheduled people. The environment was friendly and relaxed. We sat around a small circle table and answered some fun questions. The questions weren't traditional at all. The interviewer seemed more interEstes in getting to know our personalities. There were maybe 3 or 4 experience based or job performance questions but the rest were kind of like easy prompts.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Georgia Aquarium (Atlanta, GA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter to conduct a phone Interview. Once I completed the phone interview I was contacted by the recruiter the next week to come in and do a in person interview. The interview went well and it was told to me that I would hear from someone by the following week regardless if I was selected or not. It takes the aquarium months to let me know the status if they even contact you at all. I had to contact them for months before I was told that the position was given to someone else.
