    Food and Beverage Host Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Thorpe Park (Chertsey, England (UK)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online in July after being forced to move away from the house in Essex I was living in at the time. The interview was less than a week after I had applied.

    As it was my third season and I had received positive feedback from higher-ups before, the interview was more a formality than anything else.

    It involved a maths quiz, group activities (Drawing the face of a partner on a balloon and writing about them, then playing Bingo to find out more about other potential candidates followed by a team activity in which you had to decide the top 10 things to have on hand when on a burning lifeboat and take the first two items to your table. After that was a tower-building exercise and lastly 1:1 interviews.

    Those who were sucessful at this stage then went to group presentations about Merlin as a company, health and safety and food hygeine and safety.
