    Performer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment (San Antonio, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    They have Saturday auditions. Set times for different talents. And an interview before with HR. I showed up and applied using the computers they had at the HR department. I waited and was taken with 2 other auditoners to learn a basic dance (dance audition). The instructor was awesome. Very quick. After, I waited and then was called to sing in a room for 2 entertainment directors. They had an aux chord for me to plug in my phone. They don't have a pianist, must be electronic aux for the music. They loved it and were very polite. I then read an aside for a comedic actor position. They said they would let me know within a week or two if I was hired. Still waiting for a response but it's only been a couple of days. Pretty confident I got the job!

    Performer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment (San Diego, CA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Audition, followed by interview with manager. Overall, very positive. The audition is stressful for the obvious reasons of competing with other performers who want the same job you are going for. It can be disappointing when turned away. When getting hired though, it’s a positive experience, and producers are excited to have you. Sometimes, it can take management a week or two to let you know whether or not they’ve decided to hire you, which is nerve wracking because performers who went to the audition are scared for weeks that they didn’t get the job.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment in August 2017.

    Interview

    I took the online assessment and was told to schedule an interview. I called to do that and was told that I had to be at the interview THE NEXT Day and that was the ONLY DAY to interview for that position and that I would find out then and there if I was hired and would need to start TWO DAYS AFTER THAT. I drove 6.5 hours to get to the interview only to find out that all of that was bad information. The person looked truly horrified to be hearing all this. It goes without saying that my interview was essentially blown after this awkwardness. SO CRAZY UNPROFESSIONAL. Don't even bother trying here. What a waste of time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview is done with a group were you're taken into a room with around 10 other people, awaiting you are interviewers. They never ask you direct questions during the "interview", as it's called an "observational interview." First, you're asked to state your name and grab a plush animal and describe how you relate to that animal. After that you are given a puzzle to solve as a team. Finally you are given two situations per group and are asked to give the best solution to those situations. After all this you're asked whether you have any questions or not.

    They then tell you that you'll know the outcome whether you got a job or not after waiting about 30 more minutes.

    Lengthy application after which you're scheduled for an interview almost immediately. The interviews are very generic from name your greatest achievement so far to what are your biggest faults.
