Legoland Interview Questions
Stand out from the other candidates by practicing some typical interview questions once you’ve submitted your Legoland application.
Why do you want to work here? Working at a theme park is a fairly unique experience so it will be helpful if you can come up with a unique answer to impress the hiring manager.
Can you describe your ideal ride? They want to see your creativity and passion so try to think outside the box a bit. But always remember who the target audience is to show that you understand the role.
Build something from these blocks and then tell me about it. You need to be a good communicator and provide educational and fun experiences for children. Show off your imagination and then clearly describe your thought process.
Tell me about a time when you worked in a team. A strong feeling of teamwork is especially important in Legoland jobs. Pick a time from either your past employment experience, or from school or college when you have worked successfully in a team.
What is the most important part of customer service? You’ll be working with customers every day so you’ll need to demonstrate that you have good interpersonal skills and that you understand what it takes to work in this industry.
Advice For Application Process
You can either search for Legoland jobs online or find the careers section on the specific location’s website, as well as submit a Legoland job application online via the Merlin Entertainments careers page. Search for the role you want and fill in their online application form with your skills and experience and upload your resume.
It’s best to apply online as you can’t normally apply in person for jobs and you can’t download a printable application for Legoland. However, if you approach a manager to make a direct application they may be able to give you more information on their available roles and the requirements and may be able to direct you to a free application.
For ‘Model Citizen’ positions, the jobs based in the parks, you will generally be asked to attend a group interview. This will include a number of different activities designed to help you showcase your originality and creativity, as well as see how you work with others. Be prepared to undertake team-building activities under manager supervision.
Afterwards you will be asked to go off one by one to have a face-to-face interview with one of the managers at the park. Here they will generally ask more specific questions about your previous experience and behavioral questions. In a place like this it’s important to always be positive and upbeat and show your natural personality.
