    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kings Island (Mason, OH) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I received a phone call and proceeded to complete a phone interview. The questions were pretty much the generic: "Why do you want to work here?" "How did you hear about this job?" "What skills do you have that would make you a good candidate for this job?" I was then scheduled for an in-person interview. When I arrived at the interview, I interviewed at the same time as 6 other people (so 7 in total). After the group interview, I was offered a position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Kings Island (Mason, OH) in March 2009.

    Interview

    You first apply through the Cedar Fair jobnet website, then wait for an email to schedule your interview. Once you get the email the jobnet page becomes interactive so you can pick a time to interview. The interview is very simple, just basics on who you are and what your job history has been and they usually ask what dept you're interested in and why. After the interview, you schedule for paperwork processing which is a long and tedious process. About 15 pages of paperwork has to be filled out online and then printed, along with 2 forms of ID and you have to pass a drug screen same day, finally take your picture for ID and get your uniform. If done efficiently, the process takes about 2 hours. If you're a new employee you then have to go to park orientation and your specific location training to be ready to start the season.

    Interview Questions

    • They sometimes ask to do a ride spiel, which, if you're uncomfortable speaking in front of people would be quite terrifying especially during an interview.   1 Answer
