    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Universal Studios.

    Interview

    The interview was really simple. You go in and they call you into the interview rooms. My interviewer was really nice and welcoming. Simple questions asked like why do you wanna work here, how would you make the experience better for guests, how would you deal with a coworker who is always late, etc.
