    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Kings Island in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a phone call and was asked a few questions [see below]. At the end of the call, I scheduled a time to come in for a group interview. I was there with 4 others (2 adults, 2 teens) all applying for different positions. We each introduced ourselves and then were given a teamwork-centered activity. After that, we were given two scenarios that could happen in the park [see below] and had to work it out as a team. After that, the three interviewers left the room for a few minutes. They came back in and told us that we were all being offered jobs. From there, we waited for a representative from our respective department to take us to fill out paperwork. The process was painless and relatively quick.
