Ride Operator Interview

Anonymous Employee in Valencia, CA
Accepted Offer
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Six Flags (Valencia, CA) in July 2013.

Interview

I applied online and was scheduled for an interview a short period after. I arrived in business casual with all of my paperwork in order (make sure you have everything with you). I was a minor at the time so I brought my parent since they HAVE to be present to fill out paperwork for you as well. I waited in the HR office after checking in at the front desk. There were other people in there doing interviews or waiting on interviews. I was asked to fill out a bit of information. After completing that, i gave it to the front desk who asked me to wait again for a bit. Finally, I was called up and the lady politely greeted me. We went to a private interview space where she asked me very very simple questions about myself and how I am as a person. She was very nice.
Questions like: Do you like working alone or with people? How would you ask a neighbor to visit Six Flags? etc
None of the questions caught me off guard. She appreciated all my responses.
After completely the interview, she said I did a wonderful job but that no positions were available at the time but that she would keep me on file. I left very sad but continued to call back each week for two weeks to ask if anything was opening up. I gave up the third week as I realized there was no way I'd get the job but suddenly I got a call that next morning saying a position opened up and they wanted me to come in that afternoon to fill out the hiring paperwork (tax forms, etc). I was so happy!
I came in and filled out all the paperwork with my parent (they are allowed to help you). I gave the packet back to the front desk and a very very sweet lady took me back into the same interview space to go over my packet. She had me sign a lot of forms and explained Six Flags policies, etc. She had my Dad even sign some things. After all that (which was very easy and very relaxed), she gave me a paper for my training/orientation days.
Don't worry about training/orientation days! They are the easiest parts of the process since you already have the job. You get to learn about the specifics, you get to meet all your coworkers and supervisors. It's very fun and relaxed!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Six Flags (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online, got called 3 days later (missed the call, but they left a voice mail), didn't call back. Got another call and scheduled an interview, told me to dress buisness casual (if you don't they won't hire you or they will reschedule you). When you walk in to HR you go to the front desk, an they will ask you to do a six flags standardize math questioniare which is extremely easy. After that you they ask you to sit down and wait till you get called. When you get called they will lead you too a cubicle and ask you if the info you put on the online application is correct. They will go thru some policies and you sign and intial papers. They will ask why you picked six flags, and some other questions that are situation based such as an angry customers or guest or how you would convince a neighbor to go to six flags. After that she told me I passed my first interview. She handed me a processing packet that had the parks policies and tax forms and medical forms to fill out and a background check release form. Fill that out and handed it to front desk, and then you sit and wait again. You get called and they start goinh over the park policies on hair and other stuff. You intial and sign a few papers, and then they measure you for your uniform. They will make a photocopy of your drivers licence (in my case) and look at your social too see if its legit. After that they will tell you that you are hired and will call back to schedule for discovery training after your background check is cleared.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Six Flags in February 2013.

    Interview

    I went into the interview nervous. The first part was a one on one with questions like what your strengths and weaknesses are, once you passed that part. You were moved on to a group interview where you played a game, then answered rapid fire questions.

    One-on-one interview. Once you have completed the online application, you have to call the HR office to schedule an interview. Before you get into the interview, you must complete a math questionnaire. By the way, don't bother going in if you're wearing jeans. They'll reschedule you.

    Standard questions. Really boils down to whether you're decent or not. Just be truthful!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Six Flags (San Antonio, TX) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Went online and filled out the application. At the end of the application process it gives you a phone number and tells you to call and schedule an interview. Called and scheduled the interview...interview was about a week later. A few hours before the interview was supposedly scheduled I called to get directions to the employment center and the guy on the phone said there were no interviews scheduled for that day. So instead he said to come back the next morning at 10. Once I got there the next day the rest of the interview process was great. Desk staff were really funny and make you feel completely at ease....you're required to review your online application to check for mistakes, then take a simple math test without a calculator (basic problems like "If a costumer buys something for 5.37 and pays with a 20 how much change do you give them?) after that the interviewer will call you in...very simple and basic general questions, then they will pull out the ride op questions which are also very easy...then the interview is over, in my case they said they would call me when a position became available. They called a week later and offered me a job and now I have to go in to finish the final paperwork.
