    Laser Operator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pacific Science Center (Seattle, WA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The entire interview was a power trip for the manager in charge. Passive aggressive and a no it all. It was hard to relax and present the best me that I could because of this. The interview was a joke, the panel of 2 people talked more about themselves being so good at the laser thing that it disgusted me.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pacific Science Center.

    Interview

    As a lead teacher, I was brought in for a group interview. You will be asked to give a short demonstration, the kind you would give to the kids over the summer. It's best to pick something engaging, hands on, and exciting. The Pacific Science Center doesn't do lectures! Then you will be asked different questions by different members of the summer camp team.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pacific Science Center (Seattle, WA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied and then was called into a group interview. It was a relaxing atmosphere and wasn't awkward at all. There were different parts of the interview so we did several different activity-type rounds. It was very group focused so there was not pressure on you individually. They really just want to see how you interact with people.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call for a phone screen the next day.

Got a call back a couple of days later for an in-person interview. Interview was with 2 people and lasted about an hour. Interviewers were very nice and the questions were pretty typical (what are your long term goals, behavioral/situational type questions).

    Imax Usher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pacific Science Center (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Group interview with about 10 other applicants (about 5 applying for the Usher position and the other 5 for the Concessions position). Panel included about 5 or so supervisors from the usher, concessions, and laser departments, as well as the the overall theater operation head. They asked a lot of fairly easy situational questions to the group about how you would interact with guests in a given, usually unlikely, context. We would go to a certain side of the room to signal our answer and they would call on a few people from each side to explain their reasoning. At one point we broke into twos or threes and rotated around the room and talked to each supervisor more personally. At the end they asked the ushers to prepare and give a speech, as if you were actually giving one to an audience (they gave you a sheet with some info about a film to prepare). They also told us to pick one person in the group that we would hire and write it down on a piece of paper. Got an email to submit references a little bit after the interview.
