    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment (San Diego, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    1.You apply online, after you fill out info you pick date to go to employment center
    2. You show up, wait, get called in with a group of other people 5-6
    3.
    Your first task is to pick a small stuffed animal (or sesame street character) and describe why you picked it. Then you have some legos in a box, make sure you grab the box and take legos out, talk to people who are with you, make jokes, whatever you can, (bs or no bs). Then some scenario questions divide you into 2 groups, make sure you talk right away
    4.
    You are given another date for a follow up .....or not
    5.
    show up, talk to someone on a computer in same room as interview, they look at their computer screen (maybe look at your resume), ask you questions, if you're info is up to date. If they like you they'll give you a job offer....they'll ask if you accept... you say "yes" , gives you paperwork to fill out, and you have a drug test in less than 5 minutes ;)
    6.
    you go out...wait..come in, they do the test, which is w/ saliva or something, if it turns blue right away you are disqualified , otherwise it'll take ~10 mins maybe more maybe less -also, they do backround check on you just FYI
    7.
    you got until a certain date to fill out paperwork, gotta do some stuff on a computer, which they have
    make sure you know you're bank account number and stuff cause they do direct deposit, if you don't have one they'll give you like a card or something, but it takes longer,you get payed a bit later at the beginning if you don't do direct deposit right away

    8. they give you like nametag and tell you to go to wardrobe to get pants/shorts and shirt size? i think
    9.
    show up to day of orientation, you go in a room, they give you presentation, papers
    at end you get nametag, and uniform (?) -you get payed for time spent here
    10.
    you go to where you are assigned, & they train you

    11. good luck.......you might like it, you might hate it, you might not care~

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment (San Diego, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and then scheduled my interview for the following week.
    I went in about 15 minutes before my interview was scheduled and checked in at the front desk. Waited about 10 minutes for them to call me in. They were really friendly and nice. When we sat down she told me that they'll let me know in about 3-5 days in the mail if I got the job or not .Asked me about my availability and then they asked about 5 "tell me about a time" questions. Then when the interview was over she went to the front to talk to them, I guess to see what positions were available. She offered me a culinary operations hostess job that I didn't apply for, I'm guessing because the position I wanted got filled by the time I interviewed. I accepted it, then did everything that day background check, drug test, paperwork, wardrobe fitting. The interview was pretty easy, but I wasn't expecting to be there that long to do everything that day. So plan ahead and make sure you interview on a day where you have a lot of time free just in case.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you recommended a movie or restaurant to someone and how did they like it
      Tell me about a time you had a conflict with someone, what did you do to resolve it?
      Tell me about a time you worked with someone you didn't like, what was the result?
      Tell me about a time you worked with someone who was unclear about their instructions and what did you do?   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment (Orlando, FL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    You apply during peak and they will usually call you in the next week for a phone interview which just explains the job description asking you if you are okay with what you might have to do if you work there, if they don't, call them they are probably waiting until their large hire day to call you. When you get there you must be dressed in business attire. They interview you asking many easy questions starting with "Tell me a time". You will probably get hired unless you are inappropriate and dressed to casual. Good Luck
