    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Merlin Entertainments (Orlando, FL) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Process was extensive, but communication was maintained throughout and it was a very professional and positive experience. Various levels of HR and hiring managers involved, and each step clearly communicated and advised beforehand.
