I have been working at Medieval Times, Inc. full-time
Work with horses, falcons, lights, swords, music in a castle
Wonderful entry level work
Poor 401k matching
Either very slow and boring or way too busy
No support from corporate offices / upper management
Few opportunities for advancement
Advice to Management
Hire a recruiter or hiring agency so departments can be staffed properly
Decrease the amount of time between initial interview and starting date
Offer better compensation or incentives to part time and full time employees to get better quality staff. It is currently at the industry minimum.
Offer internal job postings so current employees are made aware of other positions available
Work with staff to groom them for advancement with company
I applied in-person. I interviewed at Medieval Times, Inc..
They're old-fashioned here, in a good way. You go to the physical location to pick up a job application. This can be a plus because there's a face to the name right away. From filling out the application to getting the job, the process took about a week. The interview itself was essentially seemed to be about making sure that I was willing to go through all the stress and hardship that comes in a high-pace, high-volume, food service position.
