    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kings Island.

    Interview

    It was a joke. If you have a pulse they will hire you. You take a math test, which is just addition and subtraction. It was a teenager that does the interviews and you can tell she is reading from a script and has no experience with interviewing.

    Merchandise Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Kings Island (Mason, OH) in July 2013.

    Interview

    They asked you to try and sell something and did a math test. It was fairly simple and overall a nice quick interview. They hire anyone on the spot but processing and orientation take forever. Training takes a while too, The math test was simple addition and subtraction and they always wanted you to get a pretty decent score.

    Interview

    Easy. Just a basic interview and math test. Did have to attempt to sell an object but was generally easy. Asked about personality. Did ask about experience but I had none so I used examples from my high school experience to substitute.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Kings Island in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a phone call and was asked a few questions [see below]. At the end of the call, I scheduled a time to come in for a group interview. I was there with 4 others (2 adults, 2 teens) all applying for different positions. We each introduced ourselves and then were given a teamwork-centered activity. After that, we were given two scenarios that could happen in the park [see below] and had to work it out as a team. After that, the three interviewers left the room for a few minutes. They came back in and told us that we were all being offered jobs. From there, we waited for a representative from our respective department to take us to fill out paperwork. The process was painless and relatively quick.

    Very easy. Sit down with an HR member, all basic questions. Just don't say something stupid and you'll be ok. They give you a "3 strike" policy, i.e. as long as you don't screw up 3 times, you should get hired
