    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.

    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
