    Hospitality Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Merlin Entertainments (Orlando, FL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Recruiter reached out for a screening. It was difficult to work with the recruiter - he wouldn't schedule a time even though I asked multiple times. He seemed to expect me to be available whenever he called and he was never able to answer when I reached out to him. It would have been more efficient to schedule a time. Met with hiring manager a few months later for an in person interview. Very nice guy but did not ask me many questions and mostly talked about the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Merlin Entertainments (Grapevine, TX).

    Interview

    Other than your typical questions about former jobs and such, they tend to ask situational questions. They'll ask about how your former experience helps prepare you for this role. They'll ask you to describe what you would do in "worst case scenario" aquarium goes down situations. They may ask about your feelings on euthanasia because this is a good question to "feel out" a candidate. Here's a hint: there are times when it's necessary. You'll also get daily husbandry questions regarding the care of animals. You typically first get a phone interview, then if you make it to the next round, you'll get a Skype interview so they can see what you look like and see how you respond to questions via your body language. The questions here can either become more detailed regarding husbandry, or if they were detailed in the first interview, they could be more questions to get to know you. They are typically pretty good about letting you know either way about the position so you don't have to wonder.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Merlin Entertainments in October 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was straight forward. You'll have to create and present on a solution to a problem they'll ask you. This was actually enjoyable and memorable. However, most of the questions asked were quite forgettable and of the standard interview variety.

    Interview Questions

    • There was neither a difficult or unexpected question asked. It was all basic, too basic for a high level management position. The presentation stage of the interview process was interesting. I was a little disappointed that they didn't ask any questions after I presented.   Answer Question
